The Irony of Monogamy

While it is true that some noble creatures such as the locally abundant Canada Goose are almost totally monogamous and mate for life, we might not want to point to them as a model of how we should behave as a society.  They also like to poop all over parking lots, sidewalks, and the ground, and can be equally noisy and vicious in certain circumstances.  And besides, almost all other types of animals are very non-monogamous, so there is actually more of an incentive to follow that trend if we are studying our animal friends.

However, I did run across an interesting article by a writer in Cleveland that does touch on a lot of the "artificial" hidden forces at work in societies today that insist on monogamy in humans.  That article is HERE.  Enjoy!


  1. Wonderful post.thank you for sharing with us.

  2. I don't know about this article. It doesn't seem to take in account the statistics for the past 10 years have shown the number of female infidelity has been rising. Last checked in 2009/2010, the number of women admitting, or guilty of infidelity wasn't that far from men.

  3. Additionally, out closest animal cousins the chimp has multiply sexual partners during their fertile cycle. While our other closest cousin the pigmy chimp just about has sex at the drop of a hat; any hat.
