One of the arguments against gay marriage, was that legally it would also validate polygamy, which would end up destroying American culture and our civilization. The arguments were true, they just weren't argued well.

As Newsweek notes, these stirrings for the mainstreaming of polygamy (or, more accurately, polyamory) have their roots in the increasing legitimization of gay marriage. In an essay 10 years ago, I pointed out that it is utterly logical for polygamy rights to follow gay rights. After all, if traditional marriage is defined as the union of (1) two people of (2) opposite gender, and if, as gay marriage advocates insist, the gender requirement is nothing but prejudice, exclusion and an arbitrary denial of one's autonomous choices in love, then the first requirement -- the number restriction (two and only two) -- is a similarly arbitrary, discriminatory and indefensible denial of individual choice.

One of the reasons why rape is used as punishment is because it is easy to use as a reward for sexually frustrated young men of the Arab persuasion. Why? Because the Arabs practice polygamy. Because they practice polygamy, there is a HUGE percentage of young men that can't get wives. Why? Because their fathers have 10 wives, that is why. In a 50/50 male/female population, 1 man with 10 wives, comes to about 50 times 10, equaling 500. 50 men out of a 100 population sample, with a 450 young men with no wives. Not every Arab man has 10 wives, no, the norm is probably somewhere around 2 or 3. So, to do the math, 50 men times 2 equals 100 women married. Leaving 50 extra men living the singles life of jihad, insurgency, and blowing themselves up. No wonder Palestinian mothers approve of jihad suicide murder, they're just getting rid of these useless men in their family. It frees up widows too.

So, what does that have to do with Western civilization and polygamy? Easy. When a society no longer has a constructive manner in which they can harness the energies of their young men, because there are no women to marry, that society then begins to self-destruct. Bookworm blogged about this a while ago.

For instance, if men can't find women to marry, what would motivate them to have children and to work their ass off providing for them? It is an economic model, this "monogamy". One woman for each man. One nuclear family to fight for, to work for, and to live for.

If a man has multiple wives, then he isn't motivated to do anything because he can just skip among his wives and play Harem politics.

If a woman has multiple husbands, then they start fighting over whose child the woman should birth, and the other husbands would not work as hard for children that aren't theirs biologically.

I'm not refering to free will here by the way. But the biological imperatives that make men function and make us competitive.

Why would YOU personally work your ass off if you knew your "co-husband" had a much higher paycheck than yours?

Why would YOU personally work your ass off if 5 women were fighting to get your affections? You'd be too busy fighting them off and quelling dispute, and hiring Harem managers, to have time to work. Most sane men would just quit their jobs and rely on the income of their women wives. We are talking about Western civ here, with so called "equal pay", not Saudi Arabia.

Bingo had a essay splurge about this polygamy question awhile ago.

Ross in Range wrote about the benefits some of the unusual traits of monogamy. Namely, the dynamics of younger women marrying older men, having children early, and then getting a career.

In point of fact, men succede in their careers primarily because they want to have cash and to support their families. Look at Google, for example. Is not the idea that more women will find you attractive if you are financially successful, a good motivator for YOUNG men?

It all leads back to my main point. Young men have energies that can either be diverted into Global jihad and murdering and raping, or they can be diverted and converted from the raw rage of emotions into the constructive purposes of a job, money, and being a provider and protector.

Polygamy, in fact, destroys the mechanism society has in maintaining a peaceful and prosperous society.

That is not a good idea. And that, is why gay marriage is believed to destroy the institution of marriage, ladies and gentlemen. Any institution's purpose is to benefit society. Marriage is coming to benefit society less and less. But in a sea of bad options, polygamy isn't any better.

UPDATE For those interested in Muslim culture and culture shock, read Ross's article about that subject.
