    Loevinger's 9 Stages of Development, as applied to relationships

    Thanks to reddit I found this today. It's been a long time since my Educational Psychology classes, and if we went over these classifications it was so brief that I don't remember it. As I read though the descriptions I was reminded more and more of a description of a possible journey into...

    Not about poly, but there's a lot of overlap with LGBTQ community, so...

    You may or may not have heard, but the "Kill the Gays" bill in Uganda is set to be passed before the end of this year. There is a petition at https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/grant-refugee-status-lgbtqia-people-and-cut-foreign-aid-until-repeal-kill-gays-bill-uganda/LXXHQG8P to include...

    Bi Assumptions

    Admittedly I've only been browsing the forum for 2 days, but I have noticed what seems to be a higher-than-average number of bisexual people here. I know there's some overlap of the LGBT and Poly communities, at least where I am, but here's what I've been wondering: Do you think being Bi makes...

    Cali Girl

    Hello from CA! I found this forum last night and stayed up WAAAAY too late reading. Instead of San Francisco or somewhere comparable, I live in a more conservative area of CA. In my reading last night I had this enormous feeling of "There ARE other people like me! I'm NOT THAT WEIRD!!" It'll...
