Polyamory in the News!

Dumb collection of old quotes passes for journalism

Mail and Guardian (South Africa)


I'd rather see hostile but accurate journalists covering us than the dumb and lazy. Harking back to the trashy newsrags of yore is an article in a South African paper that has South African polys shaking their heads. It's pasted together scattershot from ancient material (dig the cool 80's hep talk, man), including giveaways like "Ryam Nearing of the organisation Loving More agrees" (she retired from Loving More 13 years ago).

Here it is: Polyamory: Two's company, three's a charm, subtitled "Many couples are finding meaning in loving, open relationships," and bylined Rosemund Handler (Feb. 21, 2014). The happy photo is a publicity still from Showtime's Polyamory: Married & Dating. I'm posting about this item only because it's being served up without comment by automated news-collectors on the polywebs.

Yeesh, and the author even misgendered Ryam Nearing as male!
