Is Monogamy in Queer Relationships Overrated?
"Of the week does marriage mean monogamy in queer relationships. We did a poll. The question i asked on instagram was monogamy inquiry. Relationships is it overrated. Forty five percent of you said yes it is overrated fifty five percent of you said. No way is overrated. So pretty even split there. But we've definitely mobilized the troops. I would say to use an army analogy. Not many of those on her mississippians normally this to an email i from simon from cumbria simon says i suppose i find myself in rather a minority wondering why as a community we wanted to follow this hetero normative process referring to marriage. The really only brings us into line. Gosh i may have lost more friends with that one but really if you want a legal contract then that's something else as to monogamy. i suppose i'm more conservative. I'm not sure if you have committed your life to be with another person why you need to be with someone else. It's hard being in a relationship but if it's easy to have other relationships than commit to one person what's the point of the relationship at all that's just my view and a valid view. It is simon was probably clarify. What hetero normative means. Because this word that's thrown around and my know what it is. Hetero normative means space. Queer people following the model of heterosexual relationships and is used as a kind of detrimental description to say that we sort of try and fall into line with heterosexual relationships or heterosexual ways of doing things in order to become more palatable to heterosexual people and you know people say it's linked to discrimination that like quick people if they just ended up bathing like a version of straightness that would be better and a lot of people feel very strongly that actually we are different and we have our own way to make 'em rules. Yeah you know. I see i certainly noticed myself when i was younger like i think spoken about before i remember saying when i came out that like just be normal. I just be like a normal gap. And i'd be normal still at actually. That was the sort of internalized. Shame thing of like trying to myself palatable. And i think actually you know what you walk out your own rules workout who you wanna be and normative or not normative and that's the hardest thing and it takes a long time. We got voice. Note here from silver folks. Do i think that monogamy is hetero. Normative construct and i take is seen as an ideal goal to aim for. Many gay couples put pressure on themselves to stay monogamous. Believing data will bring the ultimate happiness onto suzanne with other couples and society in general as a man who has come out after being married to a woman and being in a monogamous relationship. For not twenty years. I know the comfort and security that monogamy bring but since coming out and seeing relationships through the gay lens it seems that for a lot of gay relationships to survive and thrive to certain amount of openness is required on the scene. The outgoing open has improved relationships. Mike harm partner night started thousand open and two years as we are still very very happy. Establish trust in a relationship for the goal and any healthy relationship is built on. Trust an open. Communication between partners I mean what we're talking about that is communication is so important and i think something you are just simply not taught enough about like. They should teach in schools. People need to be up front about. What is that that they want. What's really hard him. Relationships is finding the time or the space to have those kinds of conversations because they're really tricky and by broaching certain issues and relationships. You can be really worried if you bring up. They're going to leave you guiltier on so we don't talk about it. That can be a contributing factor as to why people do things bind each other back because it's easier than discussing it and what silver fox ter- is saying. Is you just go to talk about it. And be up front. And i think whether that's monogamy or anything else i think is very very sage advice.

IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN WORSE
"Alcohol was a looming cloud in this bankers. Bright sky with rare foresight. He realized it could become a tornado. How can a person with a fine family and attractive home. An excellent position in high standing in an important city. Become an alcoholic as i later found out. Through alcoholics anonymous. Alcohol is no respecter of economic status social and business standing or intelligence. I was raised like the majority of american boys coming from a family of modest circumstances attending public schools having the social life of a small mid western town with part-time work in some athletics. The ambition to succeed was instilled in me by my scandinavian parents who came to this country where opportunities were so great. Keep busy always have something constructive to do. I did work of all kinds after school and during vacations trying to find that which would appeal most as a goal for a life work then there was world war. Want to interrupt my plans and in education to be picked up after the war after that came marriage getting started and business and family. The story is not very different from that of thousands of other young men in my generation. It shows nothing or no one to blame for alcoholism. The drive to get ahead to succeed kept me too busy for many years to have any great experience with social life i would have begrudged the time or money for alcohol in fact i was afraid to try it for fear that i would wind up like many examples. I had seen excessive drinking in the army. During the prohibition era i was intolerant of people who drank particularly those who drank in violation of the law in time i became an officer and director of one of the largest commercial banks in the country i achieved recognized and national standing in my profession as well as becoming a director in many important institutions having to do with the civic life of a large city i had a family to be proud of actively sharing in the responsibilities of good citizenship. My drinking did not start. Until after. I was thirty. Five and a fairly successful career had been established but success brought increase social activities. And i realized that many of my friends enjoyed a social drink with no apparent harm to themselves or others. I dislike being different. So ultimately i began to join them occasionally. At first it was just that an occasional drink then. I looked forward to the weekend of golf. In the nineteenth hole. The cocktail hour became a daily routine. Gradually the quantity increased the occasions for a drink came more frequently a hard day worries and pressure bad news. Good news there were more and more reasons for drank. Why did i want increasingly greater quantities of alcohol. It was frightening. That drank was being substituted for more and more of the things. I really enjoy doing golf. Hunting and fishing were now merely excuses to drink excessively. I made promises to myself my family and friends and broke them. Short dry spells ended in heavy drinking. I tried to hide my drinking by going places where i was unlikely to see anyone. I knew hangovers remorse. Were always with me. The next steps were bottle. Hiding and excuses for trips in order to drink without restraint. Cunning baffling powerful the gradual creeping up of the frequency and quantity of alcohol. And what it does to a person is apparent to everyone but the person involved when it became noticeable to the point of comment i devised ways of sneaking drinks on the side rehearsals then became a part of the pattern stopping at bars on the way to or from the place where drinks were to be served. Never having enough always craving more the obsession for alcohol gradually dominated all my activities particularly while traveling

What almost dying taught me about living
"It was the spring of twenty eleven and as they like to stay in commencement speeches. I've it's getting ready to enter the real world. I had recently graduated from college and moved to paris to start my first job. My dream was to become a war correspondent but the real world that i found took me into a really different kind of conflict zone at twenty two years old. I was diagnosed with leukemia. The doctors told me and my parents point blank that i had about a thirty five percent chance of long term survival. I couldn't wrap my head around. That prognosis meant. But i understood that the reality and the life i'd imagine for myself had shattered overnight. I lost my job. My apartment my independence and i became patient number. Five six to four over the next four years of chemo. A clinical trial and a bone marrow transplant. The hospital became my home my bed. The place is twenty seven since it was unlikely that i'd ever get better. I had to accept my new reality. And i adapted. I became fluent in medical lease made friends with a group of other. Young cancer. patients built a vast collection of neon and learn to use my rolling v. Paul as a skateboard. I even achieved my dream of becoming a war correspondent. Although not in the way i'd expected it started with a blog reporting from the frontlines my hospital bed and it morphed into a column i wrote for the new york times called life interrupted but but above all else my focus was on surviving and spoiler alert. Survive thing to an army of supportive. I'm still here. I am cured of cancer so when you go through traumatic experience like this people treat you differently. They start telling you how much of an inspiration you are. They say you're a warrior. They call you a hero someone. Who's lived the mythical hero's journey who's endured impossible trials and against the odds live to tell the tale returning better and braver for what you've been through and this definitely lines up with my experience. Cancer totally transformed my life. I left the hospital. Knowing exactly who i was and what i wanted to do in the world and now every day as the sunrises i drink a glass of celery juice and i followed this up with ninety minutes of yoga then i write down fifty things. I'm grateful for onto a scroll of paper that folds into an origami crane and then failing out my window.

"american army" Discussed on Did She Say That with Sonnie Johnson
"Symbolism. Nowhere is just straight up. You know, I, it is what it is it a. Or anything. How you doing. I'm doing fine. You know, we just said before the show started, you know, sort of sitting on a hurricane watts, but otherwise. Anyway, I'm I'm a little up north than you now, so you're going to get a little bit more Brennan so so there you go. Chilling out. Well, today is September eleventh. And I know what a podcast is going to release today after, but I wanna make significantly clear that today we are remembering the tragedy that was September, eleven, and. I don't wanna go into what I was doing. I don't want to go into any of that. I want to remind people how many of us in this generation were shaped bad that day, how many of us started paying attention to politics, started paying attention to the world started actually thinking and being critical of what our leaders were doing and questioning why we were in places and why we were sinister and places who didn't like us. It changed for a lot of us. It became the reason we got interested in politics in first place. Me included today as I was watching someone memorials and they were talking to some of the men who. And I know it was some women too, but I'm specifically talking about the men at this point, the men who were wasting their life away, the men who had no focus the men who had no plan. And when knows planes flew into those towers, those men change their destinies those men change their stars and they did it for me. You know what I'm saying? Like they did it for me, and I guess this is not excluding a women Yala brave. Just as everything still plans to you right now, I'm focusing on men. You did it for me. You get what I'm saying. So in light of everything that's happening fell, everything that's happening with the flag for every single one of you that made that sacrifice for every single one of you put that burden on your chest for every single one of you who looks at that flag and wanted the people who bought down our towers. The people who crashed into our Pentagon, the people made a plane crash in Pennsylvania for the u. people that went into the military so that you could fight the wars abroad. There are those of us that defy decided to fight the war at home while you were out braving bullets, we were here learning about quickey politicians while you out defending our freedoms from the tyranny of Islam, terrorism, we were here fighting against democratic progressivism from enter into our country. A lot of us took that battle on a hair so that when you came home, America would look the same for you because you were fighting for us. This is a two prong war. If you actually believe America will not be defeated from the outside, there is no force that can beat our American army, our military, our navy, our marines, every single branch are if you believe that they are the strongest force in the world and as no army that can take them down. Then the biggest fight is the internal fight that we are facing right now and the people, the warriors who have stepped into that fight doesn't mean we don't understand everything you fought for at everything you've sacrificed for it. Even when we don't necessarily agree with the symbolism that you want us to hear too. And I want to make that perfectly clear because in this moment while we're remembering September eleventh and we are focused on. The outside external threats to America. It reinforces to people like me why her inside is worth saving, and that is my battlefield and just a symbolic as the war on terrorism is to nine eleven. That's symbolism place for me on this day because this was the day, the asteroid at paying attention. This was the data I started fighting. This was the day that I started realizing that there is an internal fight in America and American citizens, regular everyday, ordinary American citizens would have to stand up and fight internally just like all those men and women went to externally. So I just wanted to say that and and just put that out there that symbolism works both ways..
