joreth: (Purple Mobius)


So, Psychology Today has an advice columnist who has apparently not updated her ideas about couples counseling since the decade of disco.  Last I checked, it was not yet available on the website, but an image of the page of the magazine it will appear on has made it to the internet.

I'd like to encourage everyone, poly and mono-but-poly-friendly, to flood this magazine with positive examples of "open relationships" that work.  While acknowledging that not *all* relationships work, try to avoid dwelling on the negative aspects and emphasize, instead, the positive aspects of open relationships in your letters.  If you have any psychological background at all, citing references and sources would be fantastic, but mostly, personal anecdotes of relationships that *work* will go a long way to contradict her statement that they "never work".

Here is a link to the Poly In The Media blogspot, which gives a summary of the article and a link to the page's image, in addition to an opinion and a couple of professional psychology-related sources on polyamory, and the links to the magazine's website and the contact-us form to send your letter.

Here is the first draft of my own letter )
