Sister Wives is Back

Are you watching "Sister Wives" or have you watched it in the past? Lauren at has a very detailed recap of the start of the new season.

As we've noted, polygamy, and the wider spectrum of polyamory, looks different with different people. Some viewers are unavoidably going to watch shows like this and conclude that "This is how is how polygamy is."

For some people, it is.

But polygamy is more than polygyny, and even polygynous relationships are different in different families.

This is one situation.

This is one situation presented literally through a lens that limits our perspective.

Your mileage may vary. (Sorry, I don't know if there is an equivalent saying with kilometers.)

I'm glad the show is raising awareness, especially since the Browns have challenged the ridiculous law in Utah criminalizing polyfidelity.

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.
