This blog is about polyamory, queerness, and sex positivity -- I will chronicle my musings, opinions, advice, adventures, and misadventures in open relationships and exploring my gender and sexuality. Come along for the ride!

Your Host:
I am an early 20's polyamorous queer and genderqueer sometimes-ladyish person looking to create a society of understanding and acceptance of polyamory and sex positivity. Since most people are either unaware, unsupportive, or have misconceptions of polyamory, this blog is critical. And awesome. And will definitely make you smile. That's what really matters in the world, right? Right.

The most important thing about this blog is that it's here not just for me, but for you. With such a small (but growing!) polyamorous community online, it's important that we advocate for each other and speak up. This is my way of doing so. Please feel free to ask me questions or request topics for me to speak on.

Facts About Mental Illness and Violence

Let’s be careful not to turn this into a conversation of ableism and immediately blame mental illness for acts of extreme violence.
Here’s what the science says:
  1. The vast majority of people with mental illness are not violent.
  2. The public is misinformed about the link between mental illness and violence.
  3. Inaccurate beliefs about mental illness and violence lead to widespread stigma and discrimination.
  4. The link between mental illness and violence is promoted by the entertainment and news media.
