Interesting article in the New York Times
 
. . . about infidelity and nonmonogamy as espoused by Dan Savage.

Interesting... opting more for flings than long term though. At least he is ut there saying monogamy is tough.

That article was pretty fair and balanced.

But he lost me on the last page.

Quote:

When I think of Savage, I think of his response to the mother whose ex-husband, her son’s father, was undergoing a sex change. Her son was angry, and she wondered what she should say to him. Savage said the boy was entitled to his feelings. “Children have a right to some stability and constancy from the adults in their lives,” Savage wrote. “Perhaps I’m a transphobic bigot,” but asking a father to wait “a measly 36 months” before having his penis chopped off “is a sacrifice any father should be willing to make for his 15-year-old son. Call me old-fashioned.”
Gross and ignorant. I don't know if Savage used that phrase or if the article author did, but either way, one more blow at the trans community from another member of the queer community.
