LGBTP

Francesca Sciacca takes a look at two polycules in this article on polyamory at gaynewsnetwork.com.au.

Modern Love

Although there are many monogamous same-gender couples, there is a strong connection between the polyamorous community and the LGBT community. Both are attacked by the sex police, and you can't have a polycule without having some form of same-gender relationship. It is the very rare "V" in which two people of the same gender never meet; the metamours still have the same lover in common. Some polycules are comprised entirely of same-gender relationships. So in many ways, LGBT rights are poly rights, and poly rights hinge on same-gender marriage and relationship rights. So when politicians and busybodies try to scare people by saying "What's after the same-gender freedom to marry? Polygamy?" the answer should be, "What's wrong with letting an adult marry any consenting adults?"

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.
