Will TLC Treat Poly With TLC?

American pay television network TLC will start a reality series called “Sister Wives” next month. It is about a polygamous (polygynous) family in Utah. Since marriage law in the United States doesn’t recognize that someone can be married to more than one person, this is not polygamy in the legal sense. But it is polyamory.

Will TLC portray polyamory with respect? We’ll wait and see. Perhaps some people who currently are against full marriage equality will reconsider their prejudice if they see that these are loving, functional families.

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.
