89. No complaints

No, once you have been brain-washed from birth, spiritually abused, physically abused, held captive, raped...you aren't going to complain too much. At that point it's like not arresting someone for beating the hell out of their dog because the poor captive animal is still willing to lick their hands despite the scars and blood.

When this comes up, Stockholm syndrome is never mentioned either, and people abused from birth never knowing their rights become "willing participants in a viable, alternative way of life", instead of people born and raised without benefit of their rights as a citizen.

You know what the only hope is to wake some liberals up? For it to come into everyone's consciousness how horrific it would be to be born gay into one of these communities, well for a male anyway. Women's human rights have little hope of inspiring some people to give a damn, we are completely expendable. I doubt many people have thought much about what it would be like for a young lesbian to be forced to be a sex slave to a man for her whole life either, nor do many care to. I give a damn about all of their rights, that's why I'm not a "good liberal" and have no intentions of being. We can't use "religious rights" to wash our hands of human rights.

Do I care if consenting adults on equal footing form a group partnership and live together? Not in the least. But it is too easy to open doors to devaluing women in general through polygamy. I notice that it's "polygamy" that is always promoted, not polyandry. Always polygamy first.
