The stigma against polyamory is probably because of sick fucks who exercise polygamy with child brides.

It's also because it seems to be no bueno for society at large and, to some extent, toxic in individual relationships.

I've been contemplating the next season of my life for a few weeks now. I could worry about unfulfilling good byes and paltry words for a hundred more weeks, but I suppose this will suffice. If your eyes should happen upon this signature, I pray that you will find love, happiness, and righteousness with each morning that you rise and each evening that you sleep, secure in the knowledge that you are deeply worthy of such wondrous and beauteous things.

It says something that we're now at the point where Celt is arguing;

"You have no evidence the rich will exploit this for their own personal gain at the expense of everyone else" as though the 21st century is just something that happened to other people.

I get why you could believe "This time it'll be different" if all the examples were from third world and historical examples.

But you kind of need like, a reason to believe it won't happen this time. And "The rich won't exploit it" is not even a reason. It's just utter denial.

"We abolished the ruling class" would be a reason to think "Okay, we can try this".

The feminism that only exists in feminists heads is real, and the feminism that impacts society isn't real.

The libertarian in me is fine with legalization but the Catholic in me is against it as a practice. I still believe relationships should have more meaning than pleasure, like a good part of the world still does.

Nothing says fun like having to compete for a spouse's affection.
