NOT a Good Reason to Deny (Polyamorous) Love #11

“It will be a legal/paperwork nightmare as our system is set up for couples.” That’s what the bigots said about same-gender marriage and the Americans With Disabilities Act and just about any civil rights laws. Of course it is easier for those who already have what they want to keep things as they are. But what about all of the people who are denied their rights?

Adopting the polygamous freedom to marry under full marriage equality will take much less adjustment than adopting the Americans With Disabilities Act, the Violence Against Women Act and many other laws necessary to for equal protection and civil rights. Contract and business law already provides adaptable examples of how law can accommodate configurations involving three or more people, including when someone joins an existing relationship or leaves a relationship.

There is no good reason to deny an adult, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, race or religion, the right to share love, sex, residence, and marriage (and any of those without the others) with any and all consenting adults without prosecution, bullying, or discrimination.

  1. Really!? You think that allowing polyamorous people to marry is a legal and paperwork nightmare? What about the U.s tax code which is 74,608 pages long! Talk about a legal and paperwork nightmare! Has anyone ever read the whole tax code! I think not.

  2. “It will be a legal/paperwork nightmare as our system is set up for couples.” Ok. In the real world. If a business has to do more paperwork then they hire more workers to do it. If one of my employees didnt want to do the work then i would fire them and hire someone who was willing to work. So whats the big deal, hire some more workers or fire the ones that refuse to do the work. It seems easy enough to me.

  3. I know! How about we deny everyone their rights! That would really make things simple now wouldnt it. Then we wouldnt have any paperwork! How about that!
    But,wait. What? You mean to tell me that you dont want to give up your rights? Why not? It would mean a lot less paperwork?


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.
