re: Economic Perspective on Polyamory
My argument here is not that all women should be in relationships, but that monoamorists have this...idea that their system is one that is numerically fair, and it just isn’t. It’s not a good theory. Your cis math does not work. Your rationalism only tracks if you assume that humans are incapable of healthy, consensual non-monogamy.
I sometimes get the sense that cis people rationalize monoamory to conceal the fact that they aren’t psychologically mature enough to entertain the idea of a polycule, let alone participate in one. But more than that, I think they do it because capitalism is so deeply ingrained in their psyches that they allow it to dictate how they DATE.
