@51 (re: @22), you know I got to thinking about it after I posted that, and I realized it probably is hard for women to be non-monogamous, for different reasons. I should have known. I know women like that, who would like to be non-monogamous. They have no trouble finding men to have sex with of course. But it is hard for them to find respectful men, and hard to find the solid relationships and emotional bond they still want. And of course they have the extra problem of just being more in danger than men doing the same thing.

I loved the recent This American Life episode where the long-term couple decides to spend a month seeing other people to see what it's like, and the woman heads straight to the bars and starts hooking up with guys she'll never have to care anything about and who don't seem to mind her choices, while the guy has to go through a series of 5-dates and then break up with a girl, and they all get mad at him.

Anyway, thanks for your respectful rejoinder. I think you're right.

Spot on. I wish being poly was a sexual orientation. And that there was an assurance of an ample supply of partners for men of such an orientation. But I don't believe that there is. Can we all admit now too that it is easier for a woman to be poly than a man?

And then his assessment of gay Republicans is the other 20%.

I'm pretty sure most gay Republicans are that way (Republican I mean, not gay) because they take the very sensible position of fiscal conservatism.

Calling them self-hating is the same type of obtuse garbage as the last two-weeks assumption that the only reason someone would be pro-life is because they want to control women.

Ya'll are just going to keep screaming in your own echo chamber if you don't make an actual effort to understand people who are different than you, rather than just resting on the assumptions that make your own position easiest to defend.

Dan pretty much says the best things about everything. 80% of the time at least.

Best description of bad porn ever.

@271, what gave you the impression I was talking only about boys?

@238, I agree that a lot of advice and discussion here and about stuff like this assumes a pretty high level of dating fluidity. I think being attractive or charming or likable or whatever is a kind of privilege. As in all cases of privilege, most people who have it don't notice, and go through life judging things as though their experience is the standard, and those less privileged than themselves are invisible, to be dismissed, or to be blamed for their problems so that the privileged don't have to worry about them or examine their assumptions.

I'm not objecting to people being privileged. That's just the way it is. But people should recognize when their privilege allows them freedoms others don't have, and try to understand all experiences, not just their own and better.
