Same. I am of the philosophy of fuck who ever you wanna fuck as long as it is legal with all parties consenting and no harm is being done to anyone.


Consent is a complex thing and I suspect that if this sort of thing was more widely socially accepted a lot of emotional abusers would use it and the language of identity and social justice to pressurise their non-polyamorous partners into allowing them to cheat.

That's also a fair point. A lot of people just plain suck.

I refuse to believe that. Othetwise I'd have to accept that a) I'll likely end up alone and b) it's entirely possible (propable, even) that I suck too.

Of course you suck. That doesn't mean that you and humanity as a whole aren't more often than not on the nicer side of the butt spectrum, but we're all a bit rubbish. Life is just about being the best little slagheap you can be as we continue to thrive on the suffering of others.

Tell me about it. I wasn't quite around for the 1000 page period, but it's still a shadow of what it used to be. It's nice that some of the oldies are still around though.
