Maybe the reason everyone is monogamous is because polyamory sounds like a fucking spreadsheet

@anarchosaurus @caraellison I know somebody who kept his girlfriends' birthdays and periods in Lotus Organizer

@saper @caraellison Now that is some 90s shit. Also creepy af. The periods more than the birthdays

@anarchosaurus @saper that actually sounds quite helpful. Unlike long conversations about whose house you’re sleeping at this week

Yes I will make fun of polyamory until anyone at all wants to sleep with me what of it

@caraellison
I had a friend who did the polyamory thing for a few years. He said it required way too much scheduling 😆

@caraellison polyamory is another of those things that I naturally came to (eg: lowercase atheism) and then I heard other people banging on about it and started to wish I could opt out

@caraellison I hate to be all "oh I don't believe in labels" because that's bollocks, labels are useful. But also, especially with the internet being what it is now, half the stuff that technically applies to you is probably gonna make people assume you're a twat just because the worst representatives are always the most famous

@caraellison (also special thanks to people who call their bf/gf a "primary". Fucking well done, you found a word even more impersonal and awful than "husband" or "wife". Urgh)

@caraellison ethical poly sounds like a paradox strategy game and unethical poly is just adultery with extra steps involved

@caraellison Huh. I love spreadsheets. Also, I’ve been poly for about 15 years.
