Right to Life Regional Message Board
Welcome to Right to Life, The Farmer-Labor Agrarian State of Havilland! I really like your flag. Are you a distributist?
But it's natural! Monkeys do it. #Progress #Love
My comment wasn't an appeal to emotion. The article says that the children of polygamous individuals are less well off than the children of traditional households. Then, it suggests that the discrepancy in well-being is due to society's bigotry toward polygamists. I responded that sexual libertines, on the contrary, should consider the likelihood that the polygamous lifestyle itself harms children. That's not an appeal to emotion. It's an observation of a cause-and-effect relationship: polygamy (the cause that polygamists won't admit) leads to declines in child welfare (the effect that polygamists acknowledge).
Also, I don't think Phydios committed a logical fallacy. Many great thinkers, including Thomas Aquinas and Edmund Burke among others, have maintained that it is perfectly reasonable to keep traditions because past generations, in all likelihood, had good reasons for creating and keeping them. Traditions are the product of the collective wisdom of earlier generations, so they should not be discarded, unless there are compelling reasons to do so.* A fallacious "appeal to tradition," in contrast, values traditions because they're traditional -- a form of circularity.
* For some reason, an opposite, irrational tendency has taken hold in modern times, namely that we should automatically discard the collective wisdom of earlier generations, unless there are compelling reasons for keeping traditions. Thus, our society is forced to reargue the same foundations over and over again rather than building upon them.
I wish that were true, but the "opposition" has won its victories based purely on emotion.
As you say, polygamy objectifies women. It also harms children, and it deprives many people of the opportunity to marry by drying up the pool of bachelorettes and bachelors.
So the article really gets me angry because I'm limerent. Limerence is something that I could explain in detail but I simply don't want to take the time. In essence I am addicted to romantic love and the idea of it I take love really seriously and living in a society where sex is portrayed nonstop it really peeves me off. As of now I am, as of the moment, polyamorus I am limerent over one girl and I have an actual crush on another. It's something I don't have much control over much like an addiction.
That article says many truths to limerence. But that's were it bugs me. Limerence is very common but most people just don't know about it. Limerence is very unhealthy way of life, it drove me deep into depression I have developed heart attack sensations under stress because of it and when I was in the worst of my experience I called it a curse. That was just because of one girl. And many people who acknowledge their limerent behavior know that even when they are married they steel get almost obsessive over a coworker or even a stranger they see often.
Polygamous behavior is just a breeding ground for a psychological condition that no one in their own right understands. Limerence was discovered by Dorothy Tennov in 1979 and there is still research piling in on it because they just brushed it off to the side. The entire paragraph that was about the breakups is painful to read. Polyamory will lead to more chances to have a break up. If there are more chances for a break up and you have a closer bond to someone you're not really in love with then your going to get hurt in a far worse way than that of a breakup in a relationship with a single other person. I was severely depressed over a girl who I didn't go on a single date with when she said she didn't like me I can't imagine the pain if we did date.
That's just the personal reason as to why I hate this entire idea. Sorry if the last paragraph is confusing bringing up my limerence drains me emotionally I can probably clarify some things, if needed, tomorrow but for now I'm done with the Internet.
I don't believe you're "polyamorous" because you have a crush on a girl other than your girlfriend. That's fairly normal for guys.
Also, in general, I just want to say that I tend to be skeptical of medicalizing normal human emotions.
John thinks that George Clooney is good-looking; therefore, he must be homosexual or bisexual.
Jane enjoys playing football and playing first-person shooter games; therefore, she must be transgender.
I have crushes on multiple girls at once; therefore, I must be polyamorous.
I don't know you in real life, but I would suggest that you avoid thinking of yourself as mentally ill, unless you're actually diagnosed by a licensed and reputable psychiatrist. Thinking of oneself as mentally ill when one isn't can actually lead to psychosis and isolation and, consequently, loneliness. In short, if you suspect that you might have a problem, please see a professional. Do not attempt to diagnose and treat yourself via the internet. It's harmful.
When my nation's news broadcast showed the Istanbul airport bombing i thought "No one is here, so everyone's fine?" Then i heard there were 3 more.
Hopefully this wont happen again in any nation
