I love this article! while some stuff covers only a small aspect of a bigger problem, it gives insight to reasons most people won’t think of because of, ya know, most people want to be politically correct.
but sometimes its better to examine situations for what they are or in their entirety, even if you’re neighbors think otherwise lol
That’s funny, I’ve been debating with one of my mates about monogamous and polygynous relationships, and whether or not the shift from polygynous relationships has benefited us as a society.
I view monogamy as a more empathetically developed form of interaction, since emotional attachment and subsequent concern for each other overrides the natural desire to have more partners. This deeper emotional connection also influences children’s cognitive and emotional stability, which is reflected by correlations between a lack of parental attention and destructive behaviour.
My mate doesn’t agree and thinks its unnatural, and a consequence of religion shaping social values. He could be right tbh. But now when he says he’d prefer society to be polygynous, I can just tell him he cant fuck anyone if he’s blown up lol @alex510,
I like how 6 of them were about polygamy and only one wasn’t about sex at all. Freud is laughing his undead ass off.
Not that I’m discrediting it. A lot of it makes sense. But then again, it feels like it has the same validity as when I convinced my third grade teachers that butterflies can float due to electromagnetism. It makes sense to someone who doesn’t really know anything about the subject. Maybe it’s true, maybe it’s wrong. I’d have to look into it more, but I’m really not interested enough to do so.
