05:15 pm - Thing of the day I hate
The assertion that polygamous relationships are "better" than monogamous ones with the implications that monogamous relationships involve one or more of the incomplete following set: ownership of someone, sexism, a high rate of failure.

It's extremely difficult to calculate any sort of expected value. It is also difficult to speculate effectively on the outcome if a different factor had been present. Statistics are fraught with difficulties, up to and including the incomplete following set: cultural differences (secular and clerical), incomplete studies, incompatible definitions, ineffective reporting.

I *hate* elitist poly folk.

i hate when the polygamist in question is poly because s/he hasn't met the right person. the idea of "if i can't find someone who suits me, i'll just date 347892 people who each suit a small piece of me." it's like an excuse to stay in a relationship with a bad match you don't love.

i also hate when it's seen as a socially-"acceptable" way to fuck anything that moves. "well i'm poly, so it's natural for me to be a giant whore."

i think it's sad.
