"As a kid, I knew I wanted to be either a cartoonist or an astronaut. The latter was never much of a possibility, as I don't even like riding in elevators." - Bill Watterson
Also the study where they had women and men talking in a discussion and when women spoke around 30% of the time, men perceived them as dominating the discussion. They didn’t consider it “equal” until something like 5-10% of women talking. (via dumbthingswhitepplsay)
Voila. A beautiful example of why fighting for equality becomes a gross exaggeration in the eyes of the oppressors. (via curiouslycool)
There have always been people who love differently; and in some cases, that means truly and sincerely falling for several sweethearts at once. Polyamory promotes honesty, openness, and trust between partners, because it recognizes that a policy of mutual understanding is critical for a relationship, poly or not, to work.
Every love is different. Every love is a “first love.” There may never be infinite time or resources to devote to a lover, but there IS infinite warmth in the human heart - a fire which many can share, no matter the nature of their relationship.
I loosely identify as polyamorous, although I’m not fond of labeling. My romantic choices will only ever matter to a handful of people.
