As a great movie he once reminded us, “Things change. People change. Hairstyles change. “
And as the people of the planet transform, so do the relationships.
A few years ago, only he and she and heterosexuals, bisexuals and homosexuals existed.
Now we have eys, yos, xies, ves and bunselves, which may or may not be demigender, pansexual and / or minor neurodivergent.
A look at the increasing complexity:
I could dive into this, but honestly, look at what our culture does to our young people. This video is about prey, not predator. By destroying life-giving normative boundaries, we are subjecting our youth to endless deception and vain pursuit. Revival, revelation, and reason can heal. https://t.co/epMZG9q5rJ

And as we evolve, no one should be surprised if the seats on the local Ferris wheel are noticeably widened.
They may need it, in the accommodation of a romantic threesome or foursome eating cotton candy.
Romance is not dead; in fact, it multiplies.
So, get ready for the growing popularity of polyamory.
According to Harvard Law Today, the open-minded approach to love is being endorsed by one of America’s most prestigious law schools.
SOUTH describes Natasha Aggarwal, a 2021 Master of Laws graduate, who last spring “didn’t know much about polyamory.”
The native of India had come to America to study feminist theory.
She worked at the school’s LGBTQ + Defense Clinic, which supported a new organization: the Polyamory Legal Defense Coalition (PLAC).
“Now,” Natasha assures, “I am very, very strongly sorry.”
It turns out that polyamorous people are being mechanically marginalized.
“People have been laid off from work because their boss found out they were polyamorous,” says Aggarwal, who continues her job as a summer companion at the clinic. “It’s a problem for health insurance, for living arrangements, like leases and deeds,” he says, mentioning “some of the areas that need legal protection.”
PLAC was launched in late 2020 by a psychologist and five lawyers.
One such attorney was Alexander Chen, a Harvard law professor and founding director of the LGBTQ + Advocacy Clinic.
Polyamory comes in many forms, HLT notes, but at its core it is “the idea that people should be able to choose how to shape their families, including the number of adults they consent to include.”
By PLAC website, the group “seeks to promote the civil and human rights of polyamorous individuals, communities, and families through legislative advocacy, public policy, and public education. These rights include legal recognition of various relationship structures, such as families with multiple couples and parents, diverse family structures and relationships involving consensual non-monogamy, and an end to discrimination based on relationship status. “
So should we expect a new color on the Pride flag that represents the geometers of the love triangle?
If so, you better hurry; pigmentation is poor.
“Intersex” had to resort to a shape:

There is already a pride flag exclusively for the polyamorous, also known as people who love, defying the old warning of “have your cake and eat it too”, enjoy multiple pieces of pi:

The “P” word has certainly gotten more press in the last two years.
Case in point:
The future of the family? A woman in Florida is expecting her first baby, with one of her four boyfriends engaged. But not the promised
Other stories range from dejection …
Billy Sings the Blues: a polyamorous lover talks about the difficulties of quarantine with his girlfriend and boyfriend
… to the terribly tragic:
Mother sues polyamorous lovers over son’s sex slave injections to make his scrotum the size of a basketball
Of course, not everyone likes:
Louisiana woman tries to kill her boyfriend with her prosthetic leg after he says he wants to date someone else
But the APAs on board:
The American Psychological Association creates a task force to promote polyamorous relationships

And be included in “LGBTQ + …”? That is the great moment.
It is also supported by Harvard Law.
Partly courtesy of Harvard-assisted PLAC, multiple love is also get support from politicians:
In 2020 and 2021, three municipalities in the Boston area, the city of Somerville followed by Cambridge and the city of Arlington, became the first in the country to extend the legal definition of domestic partnerships to include polyamorous relationships. PLAC worked on both the Cambridge and Arlington efforts, and is now working with advocates in California on domestic partnerships and anti-discrimination legislation.
LGBTQ + Defense Clinic Director Alexander is excited:
“[PLAC] It is one of several projects that we have that are exploding, so we will have a lot of work (in the fall). “
Surely everyone involved is full of… pride.
The times they Are a changing. And in our new era of eroticism, it takes a people.
Or at least a bunch.
Cupid better buy a bigger quiver; the country’s next love connections will require multiple arrows.
