big(ish) love

I’ve always thought it was rather Unamerican of the US to force the Mormons into banning polygamy. I know polygamy is often used as a tool of repression against women, but so is monogamy. I think people should be allowed to have multiple wives, multiple husbands (polyandry), what have you, if that’s what all the (consenting adult) parties involved believe is best for them. I’m not even saying the state has to sanction such marriages, just maybe leave people alone if they choose to live in such a way and somehow sanctify these unions themselves. Mind you, I’m somewhat anti-marriage in general, somewhat anti-religion, but this is Amurrika after all. Are we free or aren’t we?

And yes, I’m hooked on another goddamned HBO series.
