Poly Men Can be Good Men

There has been much good stuff to read relating to polyamory at One recent article by Micah Schneider is an example: "Polyamory: Nature or Choice?"

Why are some people polyamorous and others aren’t? Is polyamory something that you do, or is it something that you are?

My answer is simple. Yes.

The longer answer is not so simple.
Schneider explains...

I’m a gender and queer activist, and in those circles, I’ve often described myself as a poly, kinky, bisexual pro-feminist male. Since I was being specific, I should have said I was cis male, but that’s not the point. Those things are not what I do, they are what I am. Who I am. They define me and how I look at the world. If I was suddenly single (Gods forbid!), I wouldn’t change that description to monogamous, vanilla, straight pro-feminist cis-male.

He then drops the f-bomb twice as he uses the word for its literal meaning. So if you can't handle that, you are warned.

As I usually do, I will point out that whether polyamory is natural or not is irrelevant to the fact that an adult should be free to share love, sex, residence, and marriage with any consenting adults without prosecution, persecution, or discrimination. The Interwebs are not natural, and yet even bigots can read this... provided they are literate.

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.
