Default Slate article on polyamory as "surprisingly woman-friendly"

When I first started reading about poly in 2010, I had come across an article somewhere that talked about how woman-centric poly is. It stated that women are leading the way in embracing poly in Western culture. I don't remember where I came across that article, but I just found a newish one, from March 2012, which does address this a bit.

And it's a pretty good read:

Making Love and Trouble: The surprisingly woman-friendly roots of modern polyamory.
The world opens up... when you do.

That is a great article, thanks for sharing. Makes me want to read the book.

I think I knew about Oneida, and had forgotten. (i'm forgetting way too much these days...)

As always, comments are enlightening also.
