One of the best commentary's on the decision I've seen yet:

We have as many double standards on polygamy as Solomon had wives

This ruling demonstrates the tendency to compare only the best monogamous relationships against only the worst polygamous relationships. I've seen hard-core feminists get 18th-century sentimental over monogamous marriage when polygamy is mentioned. They even stop saying “patriarchal,” and require resuscitation.

But objectively I can't find any argument against polygamy that doesn't work equally well against monogamous marriage, excepting those about Western tradition – which are the same ones made against same-sex marriage, and not dissimilar to those made against women's emancipation.

From the CPAA
The Poly Majority
Are you in the poly majority? Invisibility puts you in a box. Who defines how others see you?

Be seen. Learn how.

We are the poly majority: modern, secular, egalitarian polyamory.

We believe every adult should create her own relationships. No loving, life-enhancing possibility is out of bounds.

We believe rights are rights, regardless of gender.

We believe in affirmative concern for the feelings, well-being, and autonomy of every person.
