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.

This pisses me off too, but... eh, I'm elitist at them in a mirror-image sort of way, so I can't clearly claim the high ground.
