Will Marriage Equality Extend to Polygamy? with Politico’s Dr. Fredrik deBoer

vor 4 Jahren

Marriage equality for gays has opened up the debate for polygamy becoming legally recognized, but the issue has many social liberals--as well as conservatives--feeling uncomfortable. The issues of consent, exploitation, and legality are discussed with Politico contributor Dr. Fredrik deBoer in an enlightening conversation where we ask why people on both sides of the political aisle are opposed to polygamist marriage, and what unusual alliances are being made over the issue of polyamory and marriage. How religion, sexuality, and social contracts are overlapping in new ways is explored in this Lip News Interview, hosted by Gabriel Mizrahi.

Dr. Fredrik deBoer is an academic and writer whose scholarly work concerns writing assessment, applied linguistics, writing program administration, and higher education policy. His work has been published in places like The Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, Politico, Salon, Talking Points Memo, N+1, Jacobin, In These Times, The New Inquiry, Quartz, The Huffington Post, and others.
