7:30 Topic: Casting “the other woman” in poly
Polyamory is supposed to be devoid of non-consensual relationships, so why would we need to talk about a topic such as “the other woman” in poly? Much like life, poly is an ongoing journey of discovery, and sometimes, old habits die hard. More than one poly person has found themselves unwittingly cast in “the other woman/man/person” category, as we discover that a partner has not revealed their marital or relationship status with 100% honesty.
Koe Creation and Minx discuss coping mechanisms when this happens, including self-care as well as public needs and future avoidance.
