The inevitability of polygamy?
Regarding the three-way “civil union” between a man and two women that just took place in the Netherlands, Ken Hechtman writes from Canada:
There’s a pro-polygamy op-ed (written by a feminist, no less) in the print edition of today’s McGill Daily. In the good old days, it took at least 20 years to go from liberal to conservative by the process of not changing your opinions about anything. Now, the ink isn’t even dry on Canada’s gay marriage legislation—passed exactly three months ago today—and the New Democratic Party [a leftist party in Canada] is already being trashed as “unprincipled hypocrites” because we didn’t push hard enough to get polygamy included in a bill we weren’t sure would pass in the first place.
