A Massachusetts city decides to recognize polyamorous relationships

Somerville, just northwest of Boston, passed a domestic partnership policy last week, allowing relationships between multiple partners to be recognized in the same way as those of married couples. It comes as residents in the city of just more than 85,000 have asked city officials for consideration when visiting their partners in the hospital who have tested positive for the coronavirus.

The government has ZERO business determining what human relationships are acceptable and which are not. The only criteria that should apply is whether consent was given in the relationship or not - children, mentally impaired, animals, machines, etc are not able to give consent. I do not care what other humans do so long as it is consentual and not pushed into my face. It is nobody else's responsibility to tell others how to live. If 1 woman wants to marry 12 guys (polyandry) I personally think that is gross and stupid (who wants to do the laundry for 12 guys, or clean the toilets after 12 guys) but so long as it is consentual then that is their decision to make. Ditto if 12 Eskimo homosexuals want to marry or whatever 5 black trannies and 2 Australian Aboriginal lesbians; so long as it is consentual then that is their decision. I do not think these things are "stunning, brave, ans beautiful" - they are weird, peripheral, and not normal - but it is their right, not the government's. And I am also NOT saying that everyone else must accept and applaud this; that is ridiculous, people can associate however they wish. But it is these people's rights.
