    This being the case shouldnt we be banding together to put a stop to monogamy, rather than adding to its numbers?

    Maybe we should be discussing the benefits of coconut oil rubdowns followed by wriggling around together like earthworms.
    More and more people are becoming open to group marriages of different sorts, for non-religious reason. I know a woman in a group marriage, she has a two husbands. Both husbands have two wives. Two adult males and two adult females under the same roof who are very happy. Each woman has children that are incredibly well-adjusted. They have a huge support system.

    Some are happier in monogamous relationships, and others fall in love with multiple people at the same time. I like when people embrace who they are. Well, as long it's not embracing your inner serial killer or something.

    Chick Fil A is crap anyway. You need a bucket of the Colonel's original recipe, fries and gravy (don't forget to throw some mozzarella on top for some KFC poutine)... Although I've been to KFC in the states and have noticed a lack of fries
    I didn't like the rules you gave me, so I made some of my own.

    It is NOT about freedom of speech.
    With respect to private actors deciding to patronize or not patronize Chick Fil-A, I agree, it has nothing to do with Free Speech. But the Mayor of Chicago, and several of his fascist brethren, threatened to ban Chick Fil-A's from opening within city limits. That is a clear violation of the First Amendment and very much does make this a freedom of speech issue.

    I don't personally eat Chick Fil-A, but I'm familiar with them from my unhealthier eating days and I will say they are one of the tastier fast food options. And if I did still eat breading and rancid oils, I would probably have visited a Chick Fil-A today in a show of solidarity with the firm. Not because of their founder's views on marriage- I'm not religious and am strongly opposed to all forms of state sanctioned marriage, putting me at odds with both sides of the mainstream marriage debate. But rather because I care passionately about Civil Liberties. Whether we disagree with the owner of Chick Fil-A's views or not, or whether we eat their products or not, we all have an interest in protecting their Constitutional Rights. "First they came for Chick Fil-A....." and all that.

    The wriggling oily coconut rubdowns are scheduled for the wedding reception & dance, to be held in the coconut wrestling/mosh pit. And "group marriage" doesn't imply monogamy per se. Monogamy is fine, great even if it's freely chosen & not an enforcement of 1 party onto another. And monogamy, which is not the natural form for humans, merely a construct that is obviously difficult for most to conform to. Even many that do conform, only do so with daydreaming sex fantasies, porn & other paltry forms of attempting to recreate sexual satisfaction. Not that there's anything wrong with fantasies nor porn, just saying, it's prevalence & modern addictive forms would be less pervasive in a less monogamous setting where reality trumps fantasy.... Interesting sub-discussion/tangent in a Chick-Fil-A thread, haha

    It's early...
    I couldn't get much past "wriggling oily coconut rubdowns" along with your smiling avatar.

    Except that my husband is WAY better at monogamy that I am. I don't think it has anything to do with him being conservative and feeling it is 'enforced' somehow, he's a pretty liberal guy (or I wouldn't have married him). He just seems to be one of those natural born faithful as the day is long kinda guys.
    Me, being less than straight, I still miss the ladies sometimes. But I don't feel that it is particularly enforced that I stay away from them. Husband isn't interested in an extra GF(he is quite sure one is enough), but would be OK with me to filling my needs if it was really a problem for me.
    I think that most people are too focused on the 'possession' aspect of relationships to make multiples work though. It really takes everyone saying "Hey, were all here because we want to be here, not because we feel some sort of obligation, and not because we are monitoring the other persons activity". I think that VERY few people can get past those things. At least in our selfish Western culture.

    Honestly, as much as I've been sick with chronic illness... husband is exactly the person for the situation. We are friends as much as lovers, and not really what I would call a traditional couple. The divorce rates for people who are chronically ill are around 75%... with that being skewed heavily towards husbands who leave chronically ill wives, because wives are more likely to take on the caregiver role.

    I dreamed I was hanging out with Til Lindeman after a concert last night... but it was non-sexual. Does that count as a fantasy?

    I also find it interesting that so many conservatives who are in support of the Chickenplace, and appalled at the liberals boycotting it over 'free-speech' are also the same people that have/do participate in boycotts against many other companies (JC Pennys, Target, Oreo, Disney, and LOTS more) who have taken a pro-gay stance.
    There is even a conservative boycott of Homedepot, formerly outed for giving money to an anti-gay charity, who changed their tune and became 'pro-gay' by stoping the donations to the questionable charity and vocalizing that they now have a open and safe workplace policy.

    Back when I was a teenager growing up in Virginia in the 80s, a few of us got together and started a gay youth group. We first started meeting in what was essentially an abandoned building because no one else would have us. The local gay paper gave us a small ad each month and I volunteered to put my phone number for a contact number in it. I wasn't prepared for it. Not at all. One of the phone calls a 17yo was calling telling me that his dad, who was "general patton", saw something on the news about "those gays" and said that he would wish his son was dead than one of "them". As he was talking I heard this faint metallic sound and I finally figured it out and just yelled at him to put the revolver down. Kinda startled him cause he did. He's still around, started coming to meetings, but there was another one that called me I didn't manage to talk off the ledge. When reading about it in the paper, I was the only person that knew why he shot himself with a shotgun. I was the only person he ever told. Still haunts me to this day.

    So yeah dude, oh really. In my own lifetime, in my own experience, someone I knew picked up a shotgun and shot himself in the face because he couldn't handle all the homophobic BS handed out to him over and over and over from folks like the ones you see queued up to get their frakkin chicken.

    For y'all, it's just your opinion. In this day and age, just one more thing to argue about on the internet pretending you have any bloody clue what you are talking about with your fine talking points or your political arguments hashed out yet again. To the kid growing up back where I come from, watching TV with his family, watching the bigots queue up to get their chicken to make a point about their bigotry pretending it's about "Freedom" and hearing his dad say "if it was my son..." I'm telling you it's yes really a matter of life and death.

    I survived, but I paid a price. When I appeared in a newspaper my family tossed me out and I had to make it on my own as a teen instead of going to college. I had to wait until I was past the age they had to count my father's income before I could get any sort of financial aid because my father refused to fill out the paperwork. Or answer the phone. Or letters. Or Christmas cards. Or even come to my college graduation. I've given up.

    So go queue up for your chicken and pretend you are doing it for "freedom". One friend from those youth group days posted today "I don't think you're a bigot because you eat at Chick-fil-A. I think you're an asshole because you're bragging about it." and that's how I started off when I saw that thread. But no, I'm just gonna say that if you actually got into your car and queued up for your chicken just to make a point, then yeah, wear that bigot badge proudly. Just remember: when some get gets bullied, beaten up or kills himself, you helped make that happen.
    Apathy is tyranny's greatest ally.
