10. f*ck that guy AND his nutjob wives

My mother has a fondness for what she calls "trainwreck tv", which has resulted in her watching that asshole's family on television on occasion. I've caught bits and pieces over the years and it ain't pretty. He treats the women like crap, actively fucks with their heads and plays them against each other. It's a study in dysfunction and psychological abuse.

Polygamous sects the world over have a history of sex trafficking of minors and of adult women. There is a reason Utah lawmakers are looking to make penalties worse if other crimes like domestic abuse are present- it's too damn common.

women in polygynous communities get married younger, have more children, have higher rates of HIV infection than men, sustain more domestic violence, succumb to more female genital mutilation and sex trafficking, and are more likely to die in childbirth. Their life expectancy is also shorter than that of their monogamous sisters. In addition, their children, both boys and girls, are less likely to receive both primary and secondary education.

Enough of that false equivalency bullshit about gay marriage. Two loving people who want to marry isn't the same as one person marrying 6 of the opposite gender.
