15 Signs You May Be Polyamorous

You’ve never been good at relationships. You’ve tried, but something about them always felt…off. You can’t put your finger on why. But the thought of being tied to just one person makes your stomach churn.

Maybe you feel guilty or maybe you’re just confused. What the hell is going on? Are you just a horrible person who can’t be faithful?

Maybe you’re polyamorous.

If you’re polyamorous, that means you’re inclined to being romantically or sexually involved with more than one person at the same time.

Famous polyamorous people include Margaret Cho, Larry King, Myq Kaplan, Ayn Rand, Will Smith and every literally every man in the Old Testament.

You might be polyamorous if…

  • You believe that you have a lot of love to give, and that love should be spread out among multiple people.
  • You often have feelings for more than one person at a time.
  • You believe that loving one person doesn’t diminish the love you have for another person.
  • The idea of your partner with someone else doesn’t make you jealous.
  • In fact, maybe it turns you on.
  • You have trouble committing. You bristle at the thought of being tied down.
  • You believe that one person cannot meet all of your physical and emotional needs, and that they shouldn’t have to try.
  • You’ve tried monogamous relationships. When in a monogamous relationship, you felt trapped, you resented your partner, or you cheated.
  • You’ve had open relationships in the past, and they were amazing.
  • You believe that you have a lot to offer potential partners. You’re so amazing that it would be selfish to keep you all to yourself!
  • You love getting to know lots of new people. Life is about making deep soul-to-soul connections with people you never expected.
  • When you think about your future, you don’t envision marriage to one person. You hate the thought of a “normal” relationship that lasts until you die.
  • You are willing to be communicative and honest with your partner.
  • You are willing to take chances. You are willing to get hurt.
  • Your tattoo says, “The more the merrier.”

If several of those apply to you, then you may be polyamorous. Now what?

Cho is famed for her boldness, her taboo-breaking political humour.

The comedian is currently touring the globe with her stand-up show psyCHO, she also grabbed headlines earlier this year for appearing at the Golden Globe awards dressed as a North Korean dictator.

Although Cho (whose previous musical effort, Cho Dependent, was nominated for a comedy album Grammy) is performing the new song and a few others as part of the show, she insists her goal is not just to shock and amuse.

She says she wants to make beautiful music, too, in the form of songs that resonate with the politics of the time.

Another, called Fat Pussy, is all about being positive about your body, and is only mildly less shocking.

“Nothin’ better, nothin’ wetter,” she sings, and we have to agree with that.

Margaret Cho Has The Perfect Method For Tackling Online Homophobic Abuse

The bisexual actress, comic, and LGBT activist, Margaret Cho – who has nearly 400,000 followers on Facebook – has released an online statement regarding the amount of online abuse she gets

In a Facebook post, Cho described the disturbing encounters she has been involved in – and why people should take trolling more seriously.

I’ve experienced numerous breaches of security, a couple of very troubling face to face interactions and so much online trolling I can’t help but believe it’s all somehow connected.”

However, rather than shy away from social media, Cho advises those subject to homophobic abuse to use modern technology to their advantage.

I want everyone in the reach of my voice to keep their phones charged, film everything, screenshot and report ALL offensive people and ALL threats on social media.”

She also warned her followers of the danger trolls pose – and how people should take any threats or abuse they receive seriously.

BUT UNDERSTAND ‘Haters’ are potential killers. We’ve seen this countless times now. They say it on social media, then they go DO IT. We’ve got to be vigilant and protect ourselves. Stay alive. I need you all here with me. I love you.”

Cho said although the abuse sometimes upsets her, she has developed a unique way of getting her own back.

The actress described of she takes a screenshot of offensive messages she receives and forwards them to the troll’s employers, spouses or loved ones.

Ask their employers if they are aware of this person’s activity online and if they condone this type of behaviour. That usually shuts EVERYTHING DOWN. And it’s pretty gratifying. Bully the bullies with class and grace. It’s the BEST.”
