Normal Polyamorists

Via Tim Worstall, another polyamorous relationship profiled in the media.

A polyamorous trio who are engaged to each other – and all share the same king size bed – insist that there’s nothing unusual about their relationship.

I’d agree there’s nothing unusual about their relationship insofar as polyamorists go: they’re pretty much walking stereotypes. The only surprise is they live in Tennessee not Brooklyn.

Nic, who was born male and initially lived as a transgender woman, but now identifies as gender neutral and prefers the pronouns ‘they’ and ‘them,’ has always been mainly polyamorous – first dating multiple people during high school.

Then, around a year ago, the TV station worker met delivery driver Rachel, who is a transgender female, through OKCupid, a dating site.

Initially, the pair dated monogamously – or as a ‘closed couple.’ Then Nic met Xander, a transgender male, through work, and the trio now live together and share a king size bed.

One thing I have noticed, though: these polyamorous groups being profiled in the media increasingly involve transgendered people. It was common enough to have a bisexual thrown in there, but I suppose that’s just not edgy enough these days. And maybe that’s why my book sales are so low? I should have given Katya a dick, shouldn’t I?

  1. I admit that I looked at the picture first before reading and thought: what are they?

    Then I read the piece and still thought: what are they?

  2. Watcher…me too, I’m not sure who is who or what is what and have no wish to ever find out. Freaks!

  3. This is a major step forward in the development of Western society. This will not undermine us, nor make us easy prey for less tolerant cultures. We are stronger because of this and certainly cooooler!

  4. To avoid any condemnation or irritating the SJW’s by using the wrong self selected gender from the 32 available (or are there more nowadays? I can’t be bothered to keep up) just call them “it”.

    One it has purple hair, the other it has pink hair and the other it has shit on the floor and had its nose rubbed in the resulting mess.

    See? easy when you know how.

  5. In addition to the stereotypical attributes you frequently mention, we’ve yet to see a picture of one who could run 5km in a sub-hour time.

    Off topic, how much do I need to pay you to switch off the adverts?

    They’re beginning to piss me off, but the money is not insignificant. I might scale them back.

  7. The two on the left are men. The one on the right is a woman. I’m pretty sure that’s that’s their actual sexes because people who change gender don’t change sex and you can 99.9% of the time just tell. I suspect they have one dick between them if I’ve read their backstories right – so no Lucky Pierre tonight if I’m right about that!
    I’m genuinely keen to understand how SJW types think lauding this kind of person advances their cause.

  8. Thank goodness NiV doesn’t read this blog.

    I think he gets paid by the word.

  9. I should have given Katya a dick, shouldn’t I?

    You mean… she didn’t have one?! Then what about all the subtextual innuendos that you … um, never mind.

  10. You mean… she didn’t have one?!

    It wasn’t Eurovision, y’know! 😉

  11. I should have given Katya a dick, shouldn’t I?

    You could do a follow-up and initiate a new literary technique or device – the dequel

  12. “…first dating multiple people during high school…”

    Crap, apparently I’m a poly-thingie. Mrs. Wayze is going to be upset.

  13. Eurovision?

    I thought your idea was to give her a cock, not turn her into a hen.

  14. Tennessee has become Yankeefied quite a lot in the past 15-20 years, probably through internal migration, although the typical transplant is more likely a Midwesterner than a Brooklynite.

  15. I’d agree there’s nothing unusual about their relationship insofar as polyamorists go

    Yes, it’s important to remember the difference between statistically normal and culturally normal. Or psychologically normal, for that matter.

    always been mainly polyamorous – first dating multiple people during high school.

    The rest of us just call that “fucking around.”

    these polyamorous groups being profiled in the media increasingly involve transgendered people

    Snarking off for a second, polyamory has always been a symptom of deep-rooted insecurity and self-destructive impulses. It really shouldn’t be a surprise that people prone to polyamory would drift into other self-destructive behaviour fads du jour. Have you noticed that since the normalization of tattoos, extreme piercings and transgender surgery, you don’t hear a lot about cutting any more?

    I should have given Katya a dick, shouldn’t I?

    I thought giving Katya a dick was the start of your problems.

  16. Im not going to any more os these 80s revival shows, if that is the state of The Human League.
