Anyway, on this #NationalPolyamoryDay (still not sure which country this is for but oh well) I'd like to remind people to:
-care about polyam folks having equal marriage + parenting rights
-not call polyamory a "lifestyle choice"
-be respectful
-not jump in here with "so long as everyone involved agrees to it" (that's literally in the definition of polyamory, people)
-also not jump in here with "so long as polyamorous people acknowledge that it's not for everyone" (we know, believe me).
I have fewer rights as a polyamorous person than I do as a non-straight person (don't wanna specify my sexuality) and barely any monoamorous people acknowledge that. It was weird seeing the massive push for same-sex marriage and then realising no-one cared about polyam folks.

In honor of the #Callisto6 finale this weekend, I am going to be posting something I've been meaning to for the last 3-ish weeks or so.

I am running a vanilla 1.14 Minecraft server for the #SuperPunks (if you're interested give me a yell in the fan discord), and did something...
The something being 20-odd #PRIDE flags in the form of Minecraft Banners. Some disclaimers:

There's only so much detail that can be put into a given banner, and I only have so much skill. As much as I would have loved to have a Philly PRIDE banner, it's beyond my abilities atm.
Right now it's basically me and one other person from the #Superpunks/#AuxCrew Discord on the Minecraft server, but other fans are welcome to join.

The server is Whitelisted, and I will only be handing out the IP on the Discord/via IMs. Dragon is dead, and most pets are tamed

Friendship IS romance. Queer folks know this. Polyamorous folks know this. You can have friend crushes. You can friend woo someone. Friendship IS romance.
If your friendships lack romance you have shitty friends. My friends take care of me when I am sick. We take each other on friend dates. We buy each other gifts. We LOVE each other deeply. Just because there isn’t sexual involved doesn’t mean it’s not romance or real love.
I need more of us to reject the heteropartiarchal narrative even if you choose to be straight or monogamous. Practice queer poly love in your friendships. Have deep relationships of all sorts that you value!

Fuck the idea that challenging toxic norms of traditional monogamy is a “university PhD thesis worthy idea.” I learned the most about #polyamory from ppl w/out degrees. Fuck the idea that ppl without formal higher education “have less complicated stuff going on in their heads”
If folks need examples of the wide variety of people who practice non-monogamy is a number of ways, under different circumstances, I recommend checking out @PolyRoleModels
