The objections I hear to polyamory tend to separate into two narratives sharing a common thread.
The first narrative is supposedly concerned about women, and typified by National Review’s Polyamory Is A Modern Name For A Backward Practice.
Poly men were more likely than poly women to be single.
However, poly men were still less likely to be single than mono men.
Despite the different focuses, they both have the same theory.“Oh really”, I would gush, “she is really the nicest person and has been so kind to me”.They would stare back at me unblinking, with cold, dead eyes. I could also see that it was not up for discussion.45% of the mono men in the sample were single, suggesting polyamory doesn’t hurt low-status men’s chances of getting a date.This sample is pretty skewed since it has three times more poly men than poly women.
