Hello everyone! I just wanted to take a moment to apologize for the recent silence here. I have so many new followers, and I don’t want you to think I’ve gone MIA! After having a couple fairly high-profile pieces published close together, I’ve been kind of overwhelmed by the response and needing to stick my head in the sand for a little bit. I’ve had other things going on in my life, too–we just got a new puppy, I’ve been enjoying the Summer with my family and friends, and I’ve also been dealing with the stress of announcing my upcoming wedding to family. I try to avoid using this blog as a personal journal, but sometimes the personal has everything to do with what this blog is all about. So I’ll avoid going on at length about these things, but I’ll just say that it’s always emotionally challenging when something that should be a joyful announcement is instead–thanks to social norms–greeted with disapproval and discomfort.
I owe a lot of people emails and responses to comments and media inquiries, and I promise they’re coming! Thanks for sticking with me.
In the meantime, please feel free to check out this piece I wrote recently for the Ms. Magazine blog, calling on feminists to be critical of the institution of compulsory monogamy.
My latest column at Modern Poly is coming soon, and I’ll be back into the swing of blogging–as well as answering all of your emails!–next week. Thanks for reading!
