My 7 year old recently learned about swear jars and wanted to know if I could pay him for every cuss word I said in his presence. I said, “Fuck no. I’m not paying you shit.”

Because we live in such a monogamy-centered society, it makes sense that many people can only conceive of non-monogamy in what ultimately still amounts to monogamous terms. There is a common misconception that a polyamorous relationship is really no different from an open-relationship agreement: one committed couple, with some lighthearted fun on the side. But the word “polyamory,” by definition, means loving more than one. Many of us have deeply committed relationships with more than one partner, with no hierarchy among them and no core “couple” at the heart of it all. To me, this notion that there must be one more important relationship, one true love, feels a lot like people looking at same-sex couples and thinking that one person must be the “man” in the relationship and the other must be the “woman.” After all, both of these misunderstandings result from people trying to graft their normative conceptions of love and relationships onto people who are partnering in non-normative ways. It seems that it is somewhat easy for many people to acknowledge that humans are capable of loving one person and still enjoying sex with others (assuming, of course, that the terms of their relationship make such behavior acceptable). But it is much harder for people to think outside the fairy-tale notion of “the one” and imagine that it might be possible to actually romantically love more than one person simultaneously.

Whenever someone tells me that they think polygamy is bullshit, I ask them why there has been so many books, poems, songs, and movies about a person falling in love with a second person or having to “choose” between two people. People can, and do fall in love with more than one person. This isn’t a new concept at all.

At what point do you take girls out of school altogether because boys can’t handle it?

"Expecting girls to be the gatekeepers of boys’ bad behavior is a slippery slope to placing more serious restrictions on women’s bodies, and lets boys off the hook at a time when they should be focusing on how to improve their own actions."

Damn. Yeah.

I played around with my hair. Asymmetrical pomp/victory roll thingies. I need to fiddle around some more but this look could be damn good!

Right?? The smoke is terrible! We all have sore throats from it. We need a good full week of rain.

I am SO READY for autumn. I hate this half summer/half fall thing where I know by lunchtime it’ll be much too hot for long sleeves. Awesome shirt by fancyclancytees.

Americans love Mexican food. We consume nachos, tacos, burritos, tortas, enchiladas, tamales and anything resembling Mexican in enormous quantities. We love Mexican beverages, happily knocking back huge amounts of tequila, mezcal and Mexican beer every year. We love Mexican people—as we sure…

so you’re telling me there’s an alien who regenerates into a completely random form, that he cannot control or determine himself, and who understandably could take millions of different appearances, but who all 13 times just turned into a different skinny white guy

I assumed it was because skinny white guys can and usually get away with anything. Wasn’t there a saying that being a white male was the easiest “level.” Well there you go- you want to fuck shit up and get away with it? Skinny white guy.
