Polyamory: Because it's NOT all about the sex!

I'm pretty sure I don't need to say anymore, but I figure I should do some explaining for good measure:

Don't know what polyamory is? Go Here.

Special thanks to Jette for the Infinity-Heart artwork

and to

Polyamory Weekly for the brilliant tag-line.

Feel free to use this if you like, whether you be polyamorous or just poly friendly.

I'm monogamous but I'm fine with polyamory. honestly, if someone wants to be in a relationship with multiple people, that's fine. it's not hurting anybody.

As long as no one gets cheated on and everyone in the relationship knows, it's fine in my opinion. 

It isn't for me, though.

It's not about the love.

I honestly didn't think I'd find any stamps that are pro-poly. I'm pleasantly surprised Racing Girl Emoji (Ehehe) [V4]

Yeah, right. Hypocrits.
You forgot to mention the hatred towards monogamous people your so loveful hearts boil with.

Holy hell. Fairly surprised to get back to dA only to see this getting so much attention considering it's so old but uh, no. We don't hate monogamous people, at all. What we hate is being discriminated against, having our kids taken away from us, having other people interfere in our lives, and so on. I have nothing against monogamous people and actually tend to encourage people to NOT practice poly because I believe very few people are suited to it and are capable of putting in the time and effort it requires, or even want to. My only caveat against monogamy is I believe it should be a choice, not a mandate. I believe people should make the conscious decision to be monogamous, not do it just because people expect them to. And frankly, this is an art site. If you're going to comment on something, comment on the art, not the politics or beliefs behind it, especially when you're spewing garbage without any kind of back up. If you're going to say we hate monogamous people, I'd suggest you come with some proof, not just your own bullshit assumptions. Oh, and you spelled hypocrite wrong.

It's too much and yeah it's about making colonies

What in god's name are you talking about? It has nothing to do with "colonies." Most poly people don't even live with more than one of their partners.

I bet it hurts to be so judgemental.

What hurts is people who think that they know everything about something that doesn't include them at all.

You know nothing about these people, so why do you pretend to understand and claim they have a "true motive" other than what most people OBVIOUSLY express as truth.

No, you know what true love is to YOU as one INDIVIDUAL PERSON.

One person's true love is an others lust and vice versa. You cannot define what true love is for others and neither can anyone else in the world. You can only define what it is for yourself.

I am currently involved with two partners. I love them equally, but not even close to the same way or the same feelings. Love for me is this. I have the ability to care for and nurture them both, to keep both of them happy. Truth be told, if I never had sex with either of them again, I would still be content in having them in my life.

If you want to make your relationships about sexual greed, then be my guest. But don't you dare try to label mine.

Love comes in many different forms and is different for each person. Just because it doesn't work for you, doesn't man it can't work for someone else. There is absolutely NOTHING wrong with polyamory. It is not the same thing as  polygamy because in polygamy, the 'lovers' are objectified while in polyamory, the love is all equal. Do your research, dude.

Oh, and btw, YOU'RE the one insulting love with your narrow-minded hate speech. YOU'RE the one who'd ought to be ashamed.

Have a nice day~ ^^

I find it ironic that on your profile you claim to be an ally but you turn around and do this. You're not an ally; if you are to be an ally, you need to accept all colors of the rainbow.

This is beautiful! I love it. I can't tell you how much it means to see other people supporting Polyamory!

Thanks. :) I actually am not very happy with it anymore, and I'm planning on making a newer version that's a little more artistic soon.

As for supporting poly, I've been actively poly since I was seventeen, so it's something very near and dear to my heart, especially binding the community together and trying to educate uninformed people that we really aren't just some godless heathens doing mass orgies and engaging in depravity and crap. Drives me nuts when I say I'm poly and people are like "Oh god, I could never get involved in that lifestyle." It's like "Seriously? What in the hell are you people thinking?"
