An Emerging Ally

I wrote about Dr. Eric Anderson’s latest project before. Looks like consanguineous lovers have found an ally. He wrote in this thread...

Well, I've been fighting for gay rights for years and years, and as good fortune holds, were getting closer and closer to the end of our struggle. In the next few years we will have gay marriage across the US (and it's spreading throughout the rest of the world at an impressive speed). Gays will soon serve in the military, adoption rights are coming to gays at a fast pace, and discrimination is in retreat. Most important, as of 2002 all sodomy laws were striken. So, seems to me, in a few years time, the mainstream gay causes are going to need to adopt some other causes to keep afloat.

That cause, he says, is GSA. I agree, in the sense that that I believe the consanguineous and poly rights should be grafted into the LGBT rights movement. People have the right to be who they are and share their love with those who consent. My friends (and I, by extension) would benefit from decriminalization of all three aspects, so for us it is personal.

More power to you, Dr. Anderson.

To prevent spam, comments will have to be approved, so your comment may not appear for several hours. Feedback is welcome, including disagreement. I only delete/reject/mark as spam: spam, vulgar or hateful attacks, repeated spouting of bigotry from the same person that does not add to the discussion, and the like. I will not reject comments based on disagreement, but if you don't think consenting adults should be free to love each other, then I do not consent to have you repeatedly spout hate on my blog without adding anything to the discourse.

If you want to write to me privately, then either contact me on Facebook, email me at fullmarriageequality at protonmail dot com, or tell me in your comment that you do NOT want it published. Otherwise, anything you write here is fair game to be used in a subsequent entry. If you want to be anonymous, that is fine.

IT IS OK TO TALK ABOUT SEX IN YOUR COMMENTS, BUT PLEASE CHOOSE YOUR WORDS CAREFULLY AS I WANT THIS BLOG TO BE AS "SAFE FOR WORK" AS POSSIBLE. If your comment includes graphic descriptions of activity involving minors, it's not going to get published.
