Of monogamy & exclusive bipolarity
"Needless to say..."? Or, perhaps not, after all.
The view-point, though, was amply well implicated in the previous posting, so by now it ought to be --
But, let me re-iterate: I believe the institution of monogamous relationships (not marriage itself, to be sure, as long as it be one that accepts polygamy) or the one of exclusively bipolar 'partnership' -- is a structure of destruction and spiritual decline. I do not acknowledge it, and pay no respect to conventions that arise from it -- lest there be no other, actually valid point-of-view to vindicate it.
(Thus, I would, for instance, respect a friend's wish not to complicate -- if such was actually to be expected -- his relationship by too intimate an involvement.)
