1:00 Announcements and Host Chat
- Back from Conflation that brought on LustyGuy as Guest of Honor for his web pilot Norm Owensen, Medieval Mercenary ! The showing went over very well; it’s always nice to have the audience laugh in all the right places! We both had a great time hanging with the sci-fi geeks and doing both the Kicking Poly Drama on Its Ass session as well as an open Q&A polyamory panel. Always fun to go back to Conflation!
- It’s official; polyamory is mainstream. The Onion is satirizing polyamory!
- I’ll be teaching at Debauchery April 25-27 in North Carolina
4:15 Topic: Everyone is doing poly wrong and needs to die in a fire
I’ve been speaking at more conference than usual this quarter, and with getting out more comes more musing.
In particular, I’ve noticed that we poly folks can be quick to police and judge others who have different definitions from ours. My blog post on why we should stop the poly policing and promote curiosity and tolerance is here; I talk through all the major points and make a plea for stopping our tendency to be the poly police and instead focus on curiosity, understanding and tolerance of others who might practice polyamory differently from us. (Yes, even when we think they’re doing it 100% wrong!)
Q wrote in about polyamory and Buddhism and how they relate. Your thoughts?
