I’m not asking you to forgive me. I’ll never understand or forgive myself. And if a bullet gets me, so help me, I’ll laugh at myself for being an idiot. There’s one thing I do know… and that is that I love you, Scarlett. In spite of you and me and the whole silly world going to pieces around us, I love you. Because we’re alike. Bad lots, both of us. Selfish and shrewd. But able to look things in the eyes as we call them by their right names.

Do you think you would ever be in a polygamous relationship?

punk-kieren-walker:

Yes.

I don’t believe that people are inherently monogamous. I also don’t believe that people can fall in love with just one person.

I think polygamous relationships are great. They offer a variety of relationships, a variety of love, a variety of personalities. They can make a tight-knit group that supports each other.

Yes, they take a lot of work and communication and time, but I think that’s what’s great about them. They force you to think and commit.

And in my opinion, I think one thing about polygamist relationships (at least, the from few people who I’ve talked to who are in them) is that they don’t expect you to always follow the norm. For example, I don’t really do those holidays that force you to give gifts and appreciate, like Mother’s Day or Valentine’s Day. I don’t want to be told to worship and appreciate a partner or relative on a certain day, and do it begrudgingly and half-heartedly. I’d rather do something nice for them on a random day. And the people who I’ve talked to who are in polyamourous or polygamous relationships have said that their partners agree with this.

I think they’re great because they offer variety, and support in the form of a group of people who understand you and often understand each other.

I don’t think that humans should be forced to love and be in a relationship with only one person at a time. I think that’s dumb. Yes, if two people want to be monogamous, they can go right ahead, but I think polyamoury or polygamy is just as okay, and sometimes even better in terms of communication, support and affection.

"Despite the outcries of people claiming that it would be "encouraging an unhealthy lifestyle", I do really believe that Disney should make a plus-size female character… Who ISN’T a villain or a side character! In a culture that tells people that they are inherently "bad" and not pretty if they don’t have a certain body type, I think it would present a really positive message to young people"
