You see him on the pitch, he’s always got his arms stretched, looking over his shoulder. He demands from himself but also others.’Guendouzi was part of a young Arsenal team which included Joe Willock, Bukayo Saka and Eddie Nketiah from the start, but Arteta’s plan to deal with the champions fell a long way short of success.last_img read more

Polyamory Isn’t Good for Children: My Story

first_imgPublic Discourse 11 May 2015Recently, I had a discussion about marriage with someone who calls herself a “Darwinian gay feminist.” I asked her, “Is there any principled reason that marriage should be limited to only two people? There is now such a thing as a ‘throuple’—a three-way relationship. Should they have a right to marry?” She replied, “A union between three consenting adults? I see nothing wrong with it. The same goes for incest. It’s none of my business.”I take it that she was serious in her response. Given that she believes marriage should be redefined to include same-sex couples, I suppose that makes sense. If marriage is just an emotional and loving union focused on satisfying the desires of adults, then including three or more members in this union is only logical. But her position seems to discount the fact that there might be more than just consenting adults involved. What about children who are raised by three- or four-person groups?This isn’t just a hypothetical question. Last April, the New York Post published a story with this headline: “Married lesbian ‘throuple’ expecting first child.” The youngest member of the throuple and the biological mother, Kitten, said, “The three of us have always wanted kids and wanted to grow our family.” This might be their desire, but is this right for children? Is being raised by a throuple good for children?I am particularly sensitive to this question, because my own childhood gave me a glimpse of what it is like to be raised in such a household.Let me explain.My StoryI grew up in a household living with not only my mother and father, but also my half-brother and his mother. My father had two kids: one with my mom (me) and one with another woman (my half-brother, who was three months older than I). When my mother was not there, I would see my father and my half-brother’s mother kiss and cuddle. When my half-brother’s mom wasn’t there, I would see my mother and my father kiss and cuddle. Although I was very young, these images still remain with me.My mother and the mother of my half-brother were best friends. When they were in their late teenage years, they came from Guatemala together to the United States and developed a bond on their journey. My half-brother and I got along very well, but having the same father yet different moms in the household was confusing and troubling. It was confusing and troubling for me because I was never the center of my father’s attention, especially when he would mistreat my mom and when he would show affection to my half-brother’s mom. I hated seeing my father show affection to another woman who was not my mom.When I was six years old, my father broke off ties with all of us and started a new family with a third woman. It was at this point that my half-brother’s mother and my mother went their separate ways. From that point onward, my mother raised me by herself.Although this complicated romantic situation was not technically a “throuple,” because the adults each had their own beds and did not engage in three-person sexual acts, it gives a glimpse of what children would experience in such a household. I grew up seeing my father kiss and cuddle with two different women in front of me. This was the life I was exposed to until the age of six.As a teenager, I found myself following the relationship patterns my father had modeled, even though he had not been part of my life for over ten years. I would always have two or more girlfriends at the same time.What exactly explains this behavior? I am not sure, but I have a hunch that my childhood experiences played a major role. As an adult, I look back to my childhood and wonder: in all the turmoil and the romantic entanglements of my parents’ lives, where was the concern for my well-being? In our debates about the social and legal acceptance of polyamory, I fear that we are not sufficiently considering the children who might end up being raised by throuples. How will their future behavior be shaped by their upbringing?Is Polyamory Empowering?Some scholars argue that polyamory is a good thing—that it is empowering for women and helps children to be more tolerant of others. According to Elisabeth Sheff, “Polyamorous relationships provide women with more power in their relationships, allows some women to reject sexual and gender roles, allows sexuality to be viewed as a source of unity among some women, and empowers women’s high sexual drive.”But what about the children? Deborah Anapol, a clinical psychologist, interviewed adults in multi-adult relationships as well as children reared in those contexts. In her view,Polyamory breaks down cultural patterns of control as well as ownership and property rights between persons and, by replacing them with a family milieu of unconditional love, trust, and respect, provides an avenue to the creation of a more just and peaceful world. By changing the size, structure, and emotional context of the family, the personalities of the children developing in these families naturally change. Children learn by example.The unspoken—and untrue—premise implicit in this argument is that permanent, exclusive, faithful heterosexual marriages are based on nothing but a masked urge to “own” another human being, as if he or she were an object. Ironically, such objectification is actually more in line with the nature of polyamorous relationships, in which a partner is used to fulfill certain emotional needs but is supplemented by one or more others. Rather than committing to a single person in all of his or her complexity, weakness, and strength, those who choose polyamory try to acquire a collection of attributes that will contribute to their own enjoyment and perceived well-being.http://www.thepublicdiscourse.com/2015/05/14780/?utm_source=The+Witherspoon+Institute&utm_campaign=4b90b65d32-RSS_EMAIL_CAMPAIGN&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_15ce6af37b-4b90b65d32-84094405last_img read more

Mbala return leans on BOT

first_imgBen Mbala Photo by Tristan Tamayo/INQUIRER.netOnly the UAAP Board of Trustees (BOT)—made up of the eight presidents of member schools—has the power to revise or suspend eligibility rules including the Seven Year Out of High School policy that will prevent La Salle’s two time Most Valuable Player Ben Mbala from seeing action in Season 81 next year.La Salle remained mum on the case of Mbala on Wednesday as efforts to reach officials proved futile, although coach Aldin Ayo had earlier announced he expects the Cameroonian big man to return next season when they try to regain the crown won by rival Ateneo on Sunday in a thrilling three-game series.ADVERTISEMENT MOST READ Kiss-and-tell matinee idol’s conquests: True stories or tall tales?

It prompted team officials to remove him from the roster with the tournament about to begin.Following the league’s reorganization at the start of the season, the UAAP BOT will have the final decisions on whether or not the suspension of the rule is extended or revised, unlike before when the UAAP Board, now known as the Board of Managing Directors (BMD), made such decisions.“La Salle has the option to bring up the Seven Year Out Of High School rule when the BMD holds its workshop in January, but the final decision will come from the BOT,” the source added.ADVERTISEMENT It’s too early to present Duterte’s ‘legacy’ – Lacson View comments Steam emission over Taal’s main crater ‘steady’ for past 24 hours Suspended for Seasons 79 and 80 in the absence of new recruits due to the K-12 program, the Seven Year Out of High School rule will be implemented again next season.“College freshmen will return next school year (Season 81), so we will all have enough recruits unlike the past two years due to Grade 11 and Grade 12,” said a reliable source, a school official. “So the seven year rule will take effect again as agreed in 2016.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSRedemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie ThompsonSPORTSMayweather beats Pacquiao, Canelo for ‘Fighter of the Decade’SPORTSBrian Heruela arrival bolsters Phoenix backcourt, defenseThe same source said the “ground rules” which Ayo cited as the reason Mbala could play next season only refer to the conduct of UAAP sports events.“They do not determine which players are eligible to play,” said the source.
