Charlie Glickman writes about polyamory...
Last week, I was chatting with a friend who was telling me about her polyamory difficulties. Specifically, she's perfectly happy having multiple partners, but some of the guys she’s met have tried to convince her to be monogamous with them and she's rather frustrated with that, understandably.


Glickman uses an analogy about cats to explain, correctly, that some people are monogamous, some are polyamorous, and some can be happy in either a monogamous relationship or a polyamorous one, but trying to change someone else isn't going to work. We should recognize that with our public policy and laws. Some people are heterosexual, some people are gay or lesbian, and some people are somewhere between. Some people are monogamous, some are polyamorous. On and on it goes. Let adults choose the relationships in which they function best.

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.
