Polyamory: Orientation or Lifestyle Choice?
I wrote about a question I often get about polyamory: is it an orientation that you're born with and can't change, or is it a choice you make? (Spoiler: yes.)
'I think that “Is polyamory an orientation or a lifestyle choice?” is a Trojan horse. It’s hiding two scarier questions that most people have a much harder time asking openly. They are:
- “Can I force myself into a monogamous relationship even though I prefer polyamory?”
- “Do I really have to tolerate these people?”'
