Polyamory is Not an Anti-African Plot

Sam Lwanga, or “Uncle Sam,” says the sky is falling because a woman loves two men. See what he wrote here.

Yes, I had read about Polyandry, where a woman has two husbands, but the prospect of hearing it from the horse’s mouth was, literally, mouth-watering. I mean, how on earth is this supposed to make sense?

Together, they meet her needs. What is so hard to understand about that?

As it turned out, this was not even polyandry – because the woman is not legally married to the men; it is called polyamory – each person has more than one partner and they are all okay with the situation.

They are all okay with the situation, and it is none of his business. But Sam doesn’t grasp that. He goes on to call the situation troubling, and then describes a hypothetical polyamorous situation, and calling it “madness.”

I don’t know about you, but for me, the idea of sharing a wife or girlfriend is repulsive to the bone.

So don’t do it, Sam.

Your average man wants to achieve things, to accomplish things, to be in control.

Not all men want to be in control. And some who do maintain control even if someone they love also loves another. Open up that closed mind of yours, Sam.

Sam worries about paternity, but as even he realizes, there are DNA tests. There are also things like - calendars and birth control. He also worries about Sexually Transmitted Infections. There are tests and precautions for those.

I actually suspect this thing may be a sinister plot to finish off the African race.

Actually, polyamory exists all over the world with people of different races, and besides, polyamory is not destructive.

He goes to worry about a slippery slope, in which a mother and her adult son are going to fall in love and have a child. But he never explains what would be wrong with that.

We are inching ever closer to a world where sons marry mothers and brothers and sisters are free to do their thing provided they are consenting adults. Crazy!

It isn’t crazy, and it has been going on forever. It should be legal globally and if you don’t like it, you don’t have to do it. But let others have their happiness.
