We haven't had one of these in a while.

Shouldn't have to be said, but we'll do it anyway-this is a safe space, treat everyone in here with respect and have fun.

gah ella! you can't be makin threads when i'm sick and about to go to bed :PP

i'll give myself a quicky rundown

I'm Genderfluid

I'm Abrosexual/Pansexual

and while i never have been in an official relationship, i've always been a fan of polyamorous and ambiamouros relationships, cause i would rather any partner of mine not feel guilt over attractions, and to have fun, so long as they let me know what's up

Discovered I'm polyamorous.

Didn't think I was, but figured things out when I couldn't make heads or tails of my feelings towards two new friends I have (my coworker and his wife), until I had to leave town for a few days and had the weirdest sensation of missing them. Way different feeling than I've had towards just regular friends and people I'm close with.

And everyone has been so accepting of me and loving... I'm communicating with Manley and those two, and we're just all in this really good place of, okay this is a thing that's going on now and it's okay. Nothing crazy has to happen, but they all love me and want me around. And I just feel so freaking content and at peace. I haven't felt this at peace in years.

Well, I am heavily questioning and that is driving me up the wall. But I kind of want to just try and emrace it. A pin seems one way to do so

The real problem is the only pins I can find in Denmark are basic boring round ones, and the cool custom ones I find at decent prices are on Etsy.... which results in shipping to my place costing like, twice of what the actual fucking pin does.

I dun just want a piece of round plastic, I want a cool design if I am gonna wear one.

Proud bisexual here. Well, I'm probably pan but have identified as bi for years before I even knew pansexuality was a thing so

And well, I'm not even that open. Very few people in real life know I'm bi, and I don't really want it to be a part of my personality.

Prefer people to judge me on other stuff, you know?

Haha, yea probably.

It's been really nice. We'll, more than that, but it's difficult to put words to all these crazy feelings.

>work

You know, I used to think the same freaking thing, and even like just a week before I realized what was going on and came out to them, was laughing about how I wouldn't want that because I "have such a hard time keeping up with just family". And like yea, I was joking around mostly, but also being a little serious.

But this has been, like...so easy. So, so easy. It's not at some crazy relationship levels or anything, but just the amount of communication and mutual respect going on is so new to me, but like I've been craving it for years. And the way we all check in with each other's feelings without barely even needing to be told... I don't know, it's just freaking easy and wonderful and exciting :coco1:

So for a while I tried out the lesbian label last year.

It didn't really stick.

I'm nonbinary, though, so I've decided that I'm just "gay". Like. If you date me. Its a gay relationship. Whether youre a guy or a girl or something else.

Im also Polyamorous, which is not an LGBT identity but it is pretty strongly tied to it (and probably would count under the MOGAI banner so, shrug).

Theres been discussion around my circles about t4t (trans for trans) and I thought it was pretty funny that while i am not t4t it just so happens that pretty much everyone Ive dated has either been outright trans or working with some gender feelings that dont quite match up.

Anyways, if I had to be labeled you could call me Pansexual or Bisexual I dont really care about the differences. But I'm very much asexual in terms of irl acts, but it does stem from my dysphoria and Im not sure how my feelings about sex will change as I start to transition. Ive seen people get very open, and seen people get very closed off. So who's to say?

anyways, thats all for me for now.

I'm definitely bicurious at this point. Though it gets a bit grey since i'm not sure how much of that is genuine bisexuality and how much of it is me seeing bisexuality as an escape from the cage. Still haven't really put the bisexuality "to the test" as it were, it's only works in "theoretical models". Guess that leaves me a bit muddled. I see a straight me as the most inferior sexuality for myself I could be. I'm not in a place where i'd loose friends or family for coming out. If i were ace, i wouldn't be worried about this stuff. If i was gay, i'd have a bf by now and we'd be happy and whatever. If i was bi, it's just gay but with more options and a helpful helping of plausible deniability. Straight is the worst version of myself. I know this. So is my bicuriosity genuine, or a sort of self-hypnosis i'm imposing on myself to improve my self-perceived flaws? I just don't know.

Its all relative

in the spirit of the original meaning of the question when originally asked "does liking femboys make me gay?", the answer is: If you are sexually attracted to them and are male, it means you could be gay, or bisexual, or you could still be straight with some homosexual leans, but liking one thing does not necessarily mean it is the end all be all of your sexuality, and attraction is often more complicated than just "oh i like boys/girls".

Another answer is "Whether it makes you gay or not is irrelevant, people will probably call you gay if they find out about it"

Just two days until a support group meeting r.e. LGBT issues that I've been thinking about for a while...

( https://www.transcendint.org/ )

I wonder what'll happen. I feel positive, though. Kind of unhappy r.e. transgender issues today given a conversation on Telegram with somebody that I don't want to talk about. I guess I'll see what happens.

There's two femboy dudes in my area that I'm hoping to go out on dates with in the future, but not sure about details. With the first, he's truly perfect in every way, but in terms of life stresses he's not really apparently able to work a relationship (or so he seems to say). Our first date went well but no clue when the second will happen (if it happens). With the second fellow, just kind of started out talking to him.

Wish me luck, I suppose.

I also forgot to shave earlier today as well, which I didn't notice until later... and, God, it so bothers me... eh...

Roxie's probably a better resource for sure on making something poly work. Most of my experience with poly relationships is being an outsider looking in and seeing them blow up with catastrophically. Lack of communication usually being the issue. Or jealousy. Or both.

I certainly was not expecting to be Poly, but it keeps ticking off a lot of things I struggled with and didn't understand what was going on because I was suppressing so much of myself. And finding this out about myself came at a time where I'm currently dating. Things have been very shooken up.

God, after a long morning before finally falling asleep wallowing in extremely severe depression... am barely better this afternoon.

I know that I should go to tonight's transgender support group session locally, but I could hardly be a worse mood for it.

I know that I'm a disappointment to the transgender community specifically and the LGBT community more generally. It's not just that I 'don't pass'. It's that in terms of others' perceptions of me I don't belong and aren't inherently worth being cared about because of my nature. I don't look the way you're supposed to. Or talk as such. Or act as such. Physical appearance based discrimination is bad enough but it gets worse.

I'm not Bridget. I'm just not. Transgender individuals just aren't me and aren't going to show compassion to me because I just don't fit in with them. I just don't.

I don't think of myself as actually being a disappointment objectively, but practically the division between my physical body plus my health status and many other things versus my inner spirit and emotional nature is absolute. Black versus white and up versus down opposites. And unless literal magic happens or 'Star Trek' advancements suddenly happen, I'm not going to have the HRT and surgery powered hyper-transformation of caterpillar to butterfly that I'm expected to have. It's just not objectively medically possible. I can't biologically even restart HRT at a low dose.

I'm not Bridget. She's the goddess of transgender people for a reason. But I'm just not that. Will never be that. And I know that drives the hate in people's eyes, but I can't undo being me.

Note: I Googled the term "trans cringe" and got this photo. While she doesn't exactly look like me in every detail (for example, my glasses are quite different), it's... like... well... how the fuck am I supposed to feel? When just existing while being human in a given way makes you inherently gross to others enough to be a Google result?

What do ou mean by this, if I may ask. Why do you believe this means don't belong amongst other trans people? What do you believe is incompatible about it?


>I don't look the way you're supposed to. Or talk as such. Or act as such. Physical appearance based discrimination is bad enough but it gets worse.

What leads you to believe that you don't look, talk or act the way you're supposed to?

>I'm not Bridget. I'm just not. Transgender individuals just aren't me and aren't going to show compassion to me because I just don't fit in with them. I just don't.

>I'm not Bridget. She's the goddess of transgender people for a reason. But I'm just not that. Will never be that. And I know that drives the hate in people's eyes, but I can't undo being me

Do you believe trans people hold this against you? What about Cis people? Why? Most trans people aren't Bridget from guilty gear. And in my experiences, no transgender person has expected me to be Bridget myself. So I'm curious about your experience and why they would lead you to believe this.

I feel like nearly all of that was already addressed in the post, to be honest.

For the last question, since America is inherently a nasty and bigoted country with me also being the type of person who would have problems anywhere regardless, I expect: among the general populace to be hated immediately at first after introduction, among other LGBT people broadly to be disliked but mildly tolerated with flare-ups of hatred possible at any moment, and among other transgender people to be viewed as an acceptable guest or other decent outsider (an interloper but not abused or anything like that, seperate but welcome).

I've had some exceptions to this among bronies and furries as well as none of that at all applying with the local Jewish community and Unitarian community, that I can remember. They're extremely compassionate.

I understand anxieties about not passing or pessimism about transition.

But what's not apparent is how that would put you at odds with transgender people. These feelings you're experiencing aren't really that exclusive to you among the transgender community, I mean, I don't expect to become a real life Bridget after transition or to come close to that, and I know that I am hardly alone with those feelings amongst the transgender community. I've never felt unwelcome for difficulty in passing in an ideal way. In fact I found that I feel a lot less alone and more welcome for being open about those frustrations meetings plenty of people who feel the same. So It's surprising to feel that the transgender community would reject you for this.

It's the difference between being 'trans' and 'cringe trans'.

Analogous to the difference between 'birds' and 'emus'.

I understand why bluejays and cardinals wouldn't want to have emus in their social groups and as friends or romantic partners or whatever else because while emus are technically 'still birds' they're such a peculiar subset.

Although it still hurts as a 'cringe trans' in 'trans enviornments'.

It's being the wrong sort of person due to being born wrong and not being a real part of the transgender community, making them look bad, as has been told to me in literal words directly by multiple people in multiple situations over multiple years, going back over a solid decade now.

I know I 'look like a bad person' and 'sound like a bad person' plus more, in LGBT terms (and otherwise). It's been repeated enough. I got it the first time. 'Cringe trans' versus 'trans'.

On the one hand, going to the local transgender support group meeting was such an excellent decision. It meant a lot. I'm so glad. I felt like I was in another world.

On the other hand, all of the same negativity and everything else from before the session came back immediately afterwards. Magnified worse, not made better, by me chatting with other transgender people online about being transgender. Alas.

Does anyone else ever think about just living in an extremely tiny bubble of other transgender people who're exceptional even among the transgender community more broadly... just writing off LGBT individuals generally and additionally the whole populace across the country?

Maybe having some apartment in a really 'rainbow neighborhood' and kind of refusing to engage with most of life that exists around you beyond having some hobbies, developing some friendships, building some savings, and/or whatever else?

I've passionately hated segregation throughout my entire life.

If I intentionally put myself into a situation where I decided to simply accept segregation as "just the way it is" in modern America and thus refused to even talk to cisgender lesbians and gay men as well as made other restrictions on myself to limit off access to others... I would be hating myself for that decision. Really would.

I don't think it's true for sure that things are getting better.

Specifically in terms of the LGBT community, we're seeing more and more medicalization and hyper-segmentation. Lesbian cisgender people pitted against transgender lesbians. Gay men pitted against bisexual men. Everybody nonbinary pitted against everybody binary. And the hyper-focus is on making sure that individuals get on the right medication before going through the right surgery in order to 'pass', because making sure that you're not one of those freaky inferiors who 'doesn't pass' is like the core focus of the U.S. transgender community currently. Those outsider types who violate gender expectations 'make us look bad'.

And if you're a racial or religious minority who's LGBT, don't expect any welcome mat. Your multiple marginalized identities are going to make fitting in anywhere like being the triangle peg that others want to shove into a circular hole. Applies also for disabled LGBT people.

I see more and more identity politics. More and more segregation. More and more segmentation. More and more absolute categories. More and more medicalization.

Worsening, not improving.

Some basic and fundamental questions have to be asked. Like why do transgender people attracted to women have to have their own separate clubs versus general lesbian groups? Why can't a transfemme person, even if indeed they're technically nonbinary, be accepted for having a lesbian crush on a girl? Why do bisexuals have to be exiled from multiple associations? Why are disabled individuals thought of as something special than just the general LGBT community?

And I'm going to lie to myself that because my local area both very specifically and more broadly contrasts a lot in being more progressive, compassionate, and diverse than both my state as a whole and the U.S. as a whole that I'm protected.

And I'm going to lie to myself that in narrow terms that the LGBT community plus the transgender community within it is accepting and affirming, as well groups such as furries in the U.S. and others being worth getting more into.

And I'm going to lie to myself that I'll have in-person romantic relationships with meaning and purpose.

And I'm going to lie to myself that my physical and mental health improves in addition to my financial status.

And on the whole I'll lie to myself that I'm not some kind of abnormally marginalized and special weirdo that deserves to be treated badly to the point of abuse and harassment since I'm worth being cared about while I care for others.

I'm going to lie to myself about everything and like it.

Been deep into that for over a decade.

>reframing your perspective
I wouldn't call objective factual reality a "perspective", but, eh, I'll agree to disagree.

>paranoid fear
Spending your childhood and adult life being abused and harassed in ways causing both physical and mental damage at a fundamental basis as a matter of routine, then, looking at the future and expecting that to continue without magically stopping is being rational, really. Like I said before, though, I'm going to lie to myself. I seriously am. At some point, being socially engaged is going to pay off and groups that I'm in will be positive, accepting communities. I'm lying to myself that lightning will strike me.

>live a happy and authentic life

I know that it's difficult to explain, but unironically as a Unitarian Fellowship agnostic poly-ish-theist possibilitarian I think that it's maybe likely different gods and goddesses really exist. And that they really affect not just people but all sorts of things. And eventually after death there's a continuation of your life experience to an additional journey.

So, I think that if enough people believe in lies that they come true. And rapid swings happen. Sudden change. More than that, though, if enough people are it the lies work by something that appears to be magic. And if your own personal life, the lie can make itself true. You just keep believing in the lie. I truly can't explain it. Progress happens. In the long-term, it really does. But even in the short-term. False things disproven by facts and logic go on to be real.

There are maybe likely spiritual beings outside of this universe that reach inside of it and really, truly hate me with a passion, hah. And hate others like me. But there are maybe likely others who work for the opposite team. I think one team is going to eventually win out such that there's some kind of 'Omega Point' of spiritual unity, eventually.

I honestly do understand how difficult I am to be around due to me having such an incredibly negative background, something which continues to the present so over and over again it's what I talk about. I really wish I had a better life so that I could share better things to have better social interaction. When I come across somebody else who's had a parallel life, with their own perpetual raincloud above, I feel just as drained communicating with them as I'm sure others are with me.

There is this fun thing I wanted to share. Every single other person at the transgender support group meeting liked my fursona. They loved this image. They really complimented my fashion choice. Hoped that I could get it for myself in person. And I'm working on that. <3

I used to live there. All the more reason to go back.

A lot of it comes down to that I don't really want a community. Me and some of mine is enough. I stopped going to church because I felt nothing towards the people. I don't join in LGBTQ+ circles because I don't feel the need for support in that way despite being in a relationship with another guy. I don't hate either group, but neither do I want to participate. The most I want is simply to not be fucked with.

It turns out that the person who chatted with me about dating has completely changed their mind, and no relationship of any sort (even friendship) is going to happen. My extremely masculine body isn't going to work for them because it's just not attractive to them. Beyond that, actually, it's repulsive (thus the lack of friendship). Even if I'm feminine on the inside, which they understand completely. The outsides just keep us from being compatible.

They wished me luck and agreed that if breast implants, genital adjustment, complete hair removal, and so on happened in the far future my situation would change. I appreciate their honesty and reasonableness. Really.

Of course, that doesn't change the fact that this feels as if somebody sawed one of my limbs off. It's a dispassionate and disconnected sensation, though. Like the limb got taken off by lava from an erupting volcano: how can I get angry at an emotionless force of nature that's simple fate, without any connection to morality or anything? I honestly can't.

So. I'm not one to impugn anyone for their romantic or sexual preferences. That's everyone's own business. I also understand you are trans and these qualities of yourself cause you suffering. I get that. However, completely dismissing even friendship because of those qualities?

That's going a bit beyond preference into what sounds like misandry.

It is a bit insane. But misandry is not exactly uncommon, especially in other trans people, trans girls I assume in this case. Like EXTREMELY common, I'd say.

It is very hard for some people not to hate in others what they see in themselves. Misandry also often comes from trauma.

Of course there can be reasons. But that doesn't justify what looks to my reading as extremely unjustified, and frankly bigoted behavior. Especially towards another transperson.

I'll go to one of my standbys. Abuse doesn't excuse abuse. Explain maybe, but not excuse. J.K. Rowling doesn't get a free card to be a bigot towards transwomen because she thinks they're just sexually predatory men because she was herself victimized by sexually predatory men.

Using victimhood as a shield while victimizing other people is shitty behavior and should be derided as such. I'm sure there's more to the story of this person. An explanation. With the available information however, this behavior is a massive red flag and setting off alarm bells. This "nonbinary transfemme furry" is engaging in bad behavior. Full stop.

Thank you for posting this, ive almost going mad  for being scared to say the wrong things or even think the wrong things.

I'm paraphrasing a ton but their decision comes in the context of them saying like 'I've innate biological ticks that I can't control and psychologically something like having thick body hair greatly triggers me, being that say us hugging would cause pain' and them detailing before the fateful conversation that they're in a bad place mentally due to recently being an attempted robbery victim, feeling antsy about even leaving their house.

It hurts a great deal, yes, but I keep thinking that this is analogous to somebody with an extreme phobia to cats due to whatever, maybe both severe unusual allergies and past behavioral issues, turning down holding/petting a kitten. Given that both of us felt unhappy about the situation. I guess.

Am frankly still depressed as f--k today so far and feeling unsure how to better that.

>>1129366
As a recent event that softens my tone somewhat.

However, this still reads as misandry to me. It's externalizing internal issues onto other people. That just isn't okay. If this person is a bit gunshy around men right now because of the robbery attempt, I can allow some leeway. There is a degree of involuntary responses that can be accounted for. However. This is seems analogous to the oft repeated scenario of the white woman who hates all black people because she got mugged by a black guy once years ago if it continues. Which I think most people would consider to be, again, bad behavior.

If this person recognizes that their behavior is bad, are working to overcome it, and are not engaging in hateful behaviors towards men in general, the behavior is still bad but I'll go softer on them as they are introspective enough to realize it is bad. No one's perfect.

But based on what you said here >>1129353, it sounds like you got triggered because of this person being insensitive to you. If this is how they treat someone who was a potential partner, I don't think this person should be even open to the prospect of dating right now until they can uphold their own end of such a transaction.

We all have to remember that it's trans people involved, and that generally comes with a lot of trauma that ends up in a lot of negative responses and things.

What happened in this situation is terrible, but there's no need to disparage and tear down the other person involved.

Some people simply cannot be friends with men or people who are masculine presenting. It sucks when you look at it from the perspective of someone like Pseudo here, who has been harmed by it, but that doesn't stop the fact that there are perfectly valid reasons for why someone would have to do this.

There is always the desire to attack and paint the person who wronged someone in a situation who has come and expressed that it happened as a terrible person, but this is just unnecessary attacking of someone with their own problems

And I will also say that having to cut off someone for the reasons this person stated is NOT "abuse" and it's kind if ridiculous to say it is.

This is a situation where one person's issues has caused someone else harm. This is not a situation of someone being abusive towards Psuedo. In fact, to me it is a pretty good sign that they came out and said "hey, we can't date or even be friends because of these things" rather than continue to lead her along as it was.

Someone who is aware enough of their issues to cut ties with someone that hurts them is not abusive. It is painful for the other person involved, but it is by no means an attack on them and there is no reason at all to disparage the other person involved.

The more I think about it, the more your reaction to this situation seems very excessively negative towards the other person involved, beyond just commiserating with the person who had been hurt.

I want to support Psuedo while she goes through a tough experience like this just as much as anybody, but it can be done without attacking the other person involved for being clear about boundaries and understanding and knowing who they can and can't be friends with.

I did soften my tone after Pseudo clarified more, but the clarification doesn't change that this looks like misandry to me.

The moment that the line looks crossed is not even allowing for the possibility of friendship. This person doesn't have to date Pseudo, that's their prerogative. Even if it comes from a place of trauma, it's still not good.

You yourself also said that by your observations misandry is "Like EXTREMELY common, I'd say" with transwomen. I don't think that's okay. Even from trauma, it isn't a behavior to excuse. If a Cisman didn't want to date a transwoman, that's fine, if they wouldn't even be friends with a transwoman because they find transwomen repulsive, that's a lot less fine.

I also said a bit later that I understand no one is perfect. If this person is trying to overcome this aspect of themselves but simply isn't there yet, but is making the effort to change I'll be much more forgiving of the lapse.

Been having some new experiences over the past...few weeks probably. Been so busy it's a little hard to keep track of time.

That old phrase keeps coming back to me, of what a friend once said, about how you can sympathize but not quite empathize until you've actually experienced something first hand.

While my family took it really well-me telling them I have both a girlfriend and boyfriend now, my partners families...did not. It's been very rough watching them go through the wringer, especially with my girlfriends family. She warned me it was not going to be good, but none of us expected how bad it would actually get...

I don't know. It's difficult to fight feelings of, you're doing something wrong, when a lot of people are expressing anger and hurt. Even my girlfriend and I have had thoughts and talks of, "maybe this was a mistake".

All three of us sat down and had dinner and talked about it and we feel better now, but eck. It's still a nasty feeling in my gut, especially seeing them in pain. If they had not specifically warned me it was going to get bad, and asked that I be there for them through the thick of it, I think I would have ran away or tried to back away.

Thank you old friend...

It just sucks right now, you know? Especially when I don't really feel like I'm worth...some of the things her family has done to her. Her brother cut ties with her because of this, and while I still want to hold out hope that this is just a temporary thing and he'll come back around, there's a small chance he won't.

Hearing that really shook me and it took a lot of convincing from my boyfriend that it's going to be okay. I almost lost my sister because of the relationship I was in, but even then she didn't cut me out of her life. I still knew deep down that I could still call her in the middle of the night... Watching the pain on my girlfriends face made me feel sick to my stomach.

Both of their families are religious, and that is the thing that seems to be playing a factor in it. Both families (not all of the family mind you, just some), are very disturbed and disagree with this. They consider it wrong. But some of them are also afraid, and I can get where they are coming from.

They believe in heaven and hell and fear this might lead some people to actually going to hell, so it's a legitimate concern in their eyes. Some of the other family though, in my opinion, it's just hurting their image and ego.

Well, I suppose that doesn't have to be a fear for you Moony. My boyfriend's family has actually been mostly accepting, with only one person it seems being upset/fearful for him, but still treating me with respect and wanting me to come to the Thanksgiving dinner. And my my girlfriends family...well she basically took a stand against them. She's especially...upset, now, about everything that's going on between her brother and herself.

She feels like her mother turned her brother against her, and that was the last straw so to speak

But thank you Moony, and I will remember to take care of myself too. I've been spending more time with my own family, and that's been really nice :)

Well, I could've gone to this LGBT related event this afternoon as well as then spend some time with my step-dad later to do errands, but throughout this afternoon and into the evening I felt so tired, cold, and sick to my stomach that I just stayed at home. Oh, well. Monday should be much better.

At the same time, my goodness, I was not expecting to get the news about the stopped-at-the-last-moment attempted anti-Semitic terrorist attack in New York as well as the successful anti-LGBT terrorist attack in Colorado. So sorry to hear about both things. Both stories hit me especially hard given how extremely introverted I am plus other struggles, so being able to be open about myself in public is a tremendously huge deal way more than most. I hope that the two things lead to some kind of peace for all those involved.

As a trans person who is also gay and poly, I have one thing I can say, and that is: Never let family get in the way of love and who you are.

Losing family because of stuff like this can be really hard, but people that abandon you because of it don't deserve to be your family.

Family isn't just blood, family is what you make of it. People may lose some family, but they may also gain new family.

*hugs* thank you Jade/Roxie

I hope my family can replace a hole for her. Out of everyone, I thought it would be my aunt who would be freaked out/act like an asshole, but she was immediately super welcoming and relaxed and even made a point of saying she liked my girlfriend.

Now I'm kind of curious and I risk getting rightfully hated by a bunch of people here, but I'm kind of curious how polyamory would work in a family setting.

I know there's the concept of open relationships, where you kind of have a main partner, but you're not really exclusive and can date other people on the side.
I suppose you will still have a main partner that you will take to social events. Or maybe you just interchange partners loosely from one event to the next.

But are there also the kind of polyamory where you are really having a close relationship with multiple people at once? In such case, would it be like you showing up at a family event with like 5 or 6 adults where they're all equal as romantic partners?
I can imagine that that would be kind of weird, especially in a modest household.

Technically the latter of what you described is the usual polyamorous (or polygamous) relationship, while an "open" relationship is less usual, not always considered true polyamory by some (though, technically, it is).

But otherwise, essentially, yes that would be how it is.

Family life as a poly group can be very similar to family life as a mono couple. It could also be very different. At the moment, only New York recognizes polycules as on the same grounds as regular relationships, other states don't. And thats only recently. So it can be pretty complicated. A polycule that wants to have kids and such would have to be two parents who have and raise the child and then the other members wouldn't be recognized by the state. It can make things pretty difficult.

(the reason the government doesnt like polygamy is for money reasons, anyone who pretends its anything different is stupid)

To my understanding (which I'm still very new to all this and only loosely understood polyamory before), there are people who do that. Personally I would find it very difficult just on a time basis and switching between wanting equal amounts of attention from the people I love for a good few days out of the week, and then needing a good solid chunk of the week to be me and have my own time. Right now I feel like that balance has been struck very well.

Having kids involved l, I imagine, could both complicate things but maybe also be okay? Like, you would definitely have enough help raising the kid/kids, so long as healthy relationships we're going on.

The world and people in it can always surprise us - wether it's positive or negative.

I'll probably never experience things like what you're going through now, but I do find that it's important to remember that the former happens more often than we like to think.
