I think the debate over marriage remains 154,134th on the list of political priorities to tackle in the 21st century, but at the request of the Enlightened, a separate thread exploring the "next in line" in the glorious path to Progress (TM) in the field of marriage rights:
Polyamory-relationships with multiple, mutually consenting partners-has a coming-out party.
Have a read. Strangely, this:
Gay-marriage advocates have become leery of public association with the poly cause-lest it give their enemies ammunition.
How can that be? After all, Progress means that eventually gets their turn - as gay marriage advocates argue, blacks were first, then gays...certainly next in line are the polyamorists?
But, standing in defiance of that inevitable Progress is nothing but rank bigotry - so why would gay marriage advocates "be leery" of polyamorists and distance themselves from them? Why are they not marching arm in arm with their fellow oppressed brethren against the bigoted devils of intolerance? Why are gay marriage advocates, being, you know, bigots?
C'mon, let's separate the benighted, knuckle-dragging Bigots from the courageous paladins of Enlightened Progress - who stands for the rights of those "next in line" for marriage rights, the polyamorists? Say ye!
