Thousands Protest Gay Marriage in New York

"that's right, marriage is between a husband and wife so that a child can have a mother & father.  Therefore, I demand that all marriages that have not produced children, and all marriages where children are now raised, be dissolved.…"

"http://tteaequality.wordpress.com/2010/12/31/monogamist-privilege-list/ http://www.eastportlandblog.com/?p=9176   Shall we see how many of these points have been made in this forum?"

""Does it really make sense to berate people on Page 1 for not having read through to Page 12?" Yes, when page 12 existed prior to the comment on page 1 and when you don't have to have read through to page 12 to have seen these…"

"And once again my point is that if we remove the religious patriarchy from the equation, the way we have mostly-done with monogamy, you don't have any of those implications as a systemic problem.  Monogamy suffered from all the same…"

"You are clearly not listening. "Anthropologically speaking, it's a woman's job to select the "best" possible mate - it's a man's job to spread his seed as far and wide as possible." Bullshit.  That's…"

""thus it is historically a male dominated activity" No, in societies where women DO NOT HAVE THE CHOICE, it has historically been a male dominated activity. Here in the US, where women *do* have the choice, not only do women choose this…"

"Listen here buddy, when someone says "that's offensive, don't do it", the proper response is to say "I'm sorry, I didn't understand that was offensive. I'll try not to do it again." The incorrect…"

Joreth InnKeeper replied to MikeLong's discussion 'What's Wrong With Polygamy'
"Just like most monogamous people, most poly people do not post video clips of their children online to show the "success" of their relationship style. Dr. Elisabeth Sheff is currently doing a study on poly families, so her data has not…"

"When people do not play nice in the poly community, they quickly find themselves without anyone to play with.   If someone is not "as advanced in their understanding of gender relationships as people in the polyamorous community",…"

"oh for crying out loud, are you people even reading?  there already IS a social experiment in multi-partnerships.  It's called "polyamory" and there IS NO POLYGYNY PROBLEM.   What everyone here is doing is assuming A)…"

Joreth InnKeeper replied to MikeLong's discussion 'What's Wrong With Polygamy'
"Actually, there are plenty of laws dealing with who, how many, and in what capacity, lovers are taken, including being married and having a lover. The government has *always* seemed to have an interest in who puts what bits where. In fact, one of…"

Joreth InnKeeper replied to MikeLong's discussion 'What's Wrong With Polygamy'
"Once again, you're confusing the results of insular, patriarchal, abuses with the structure.  Monogamy *also* has problems with "rotating" adults, tension, arguments, relationships lasting only a few years, and worse, the incest,…"

Joreth InnKeeper replied to MikeLong's discussion 'What's Wrong With Polygamy'
"You've got to be kidding me.   Polygamy is gender-neutral.  IF the system is actually gender-neutral, and not polygyny or polyandry, which is a mandated (traditionally by religious edict) gender-imbalance, then there IS NO SURPLUS OF…"

"OMG are you clueless or what?   Yes, there is plenty of evidence for women being interested in a multi-partnership society.  The polyamorous community is primarily female-driven.  Almost all of the books written on the subject (in…"
