Relationship anarchy isn't poly-fi, whereas non-hierarchical polyamory can be. Open, non-hierarchical polyamory is relationship anarchy. And yes, romantic relationships do not ipso facto have a higher "status" than non-romantic relationships.I still can't figure the difference between non-hierarchical polyamory and relationship anarchy. They seem to be quite similar, if not different words for the same thing.
Relationship anarchy doesn't mean that I can do whatever I please, whenever I please with no relationship rules. It also isn't about everyone setting their own rules. It does not mean that it's OK if I'm an asshole. It just means that there is no fidelity of any kind....is RA really doing rules-free relationships, or merely relationships where each of us is free to craft our own set of rules...?
