Comment: If love is love, why exclude the polyamorous? | Programs

“Being polyamorous, I’ve become used to these sorts of attacks from conservatives, but it is so much worse when it comes from gay men. Prejudice is ugly, but even more from those who have supposedly been fighting against it all their lives.

When it comes to relationships, the only thing we should ever be concerned about is harm. If a relationship is not harmful, then what right do you have to attack it? If love is love, then why does this not count when that love is expressed between more than two people?

You’d think that after years of fighting for acceptance, gay men would be the first to realise this. It’s a failure of the rights groups whose focus has been on straightening queer people to get access to a set of rights for a limited few. After years of fighting for acceptance they should be the first to support and congratulate people carving their own way. The fact they’re not says a lot about how far we’ve really come.”
