    I have to say, I'm disappointed by the author's laser-like focus of monogamy as the only hope of civilization. It seemingly never occurs to her that women might also want more than one partner, and a society that promotes monogamy without consideration for valid, egalitarian alternatives will have its own, different share of problems. Humans are extremely variable which makes black-or-white solutions troublesome.

      She has reason for that focus. What she’s dealing with here is more basic, more common, and more anthropologically honest than some John Updike idealization of polyamory. The context here is more Wahhabism than key parties.

      By the by, I’m curious so I thought I’d ask you — did you notice the other content modules in the snap? I’m getting the strong impression that main links just whiz people right past more involved snaps nowadays.

        Indeed, I doubt the societies where these atrocities are happening are ready for the concept of a woman making her own choices in the first place. Nevertheless, she seems to write this as though monogamy is the only hope for civilization ever and that any deviation will necessarily result in barbarism. I'm sympathetic to her concerns, but there's still that nitpick.

          "I doubt the societies where these atrocities are happening are ready for the concept of a woman making her own choices in the first place." LOL
