Integrated (Intersectional) Non-Monogamy

Integrated (Intersectional) Non-Monogamy

By Michon Neal
Non-Monogamy and polyamory are so much more than simply overcoming jealousy, spicing up a dulled relationship, and disastrous first relationships. Discover the role history and culture plays in the relationship choices we make. Come to appreciate the hidden power dynamics that leave most practitioners regurgitating monogamous standards in their open relationships. The history and possibilities for non-monogamy go far beyond what you'll typically find in the literature and media. Get a deeper understanding of true diversity across various spectrums from someone who is a minority of minorities.

INM Ep 9: Abuse Culture Tips: Questions and Steps to Take
I go over the basics of abuse culture and restorative justice, highlighting questions to ask yourself and your peers in order to plot a victim-affirming path forward, and finally providing some steps to take in the event of abuse. I tackle the nefarious myth that "hurt people hurt people" and draw a line between marginalized identity and inherent abusive nature. As always, if you like this podcast, then invest in it!

INM Ep 7: Does Being Polya Mean You're Queer?
More people are learning about things like compersion, intimate friendships, and open and honest communication. Many of the tools and skills that people learn to hone while engaging in polyamory carry over into other aspects of life not remotely related to romance and sex. However, people still tend to ignore the full implications of the ethical part of non-monogamy, and so mainstream relationships simply end up being monogamy + (however many additional partners) - meaning they end up replicating the same harmful or abusive status quo that queer people have to actively fight just to live. So, who gets to define themselves as queer, anyway? Ready to invest in INM? anchor.fm/integratednonmonogamy/support?#_=_ Like what you hear?

INM Ep 6: What's Love Really Got to Do With It, Though?
Here, I break down the triangular theory of love, as well as shed light on aromantic, autistic, asexual, and BlaQueer perspectives of nonmonogamy, polyamory, romance, and more. Hat tip to Salem Goosby for their term "autilove"; check out their work at https://holdingpatternsandhightea.wordpress.com/ I mean, weren't you told there were just endless possibilities within nonmonogamy and polyamory? Have you ever actually fucking heard all the options, though? You prob'ly haven't considered any of these experiences and how they might help you form better relationships.

INM Ep 5: But What About Compersion and the Limit On Social Circles?
Ethics doesn't end when you have the love you want. Being a game changer is a continuous process. What if American Ninja Warrior was the standard for how we treated one another? We rarely care about people we don’t know because we fail to even conceptualize them as human beings. Humans are thought to have a literal limit on how many people they can actually, deeply care for and keep account of. How can non-monogamy grow in practicing intersectionality without tokenizing humans, without ignoring alternate experiences, and without fizzling out into the same sort of normalcy that oppresses others?

INM Ep 4: Myths and Non-Monogamous Community
Polyamory and other non-monogamies are ALL about the community and not just the sex, aren't they? So why is it that lack of desirability can be a death sentence? Why aren't more survivors centered over their abusers? Why haven't we seen more Black nonmen in leadership positions? Where the fuck are the guide books and sexy movies by and about disabled autistic queer Two Spirit people? Yeah, there are some things really off about the "ethical" part of "ethical non-monogamy" and I'll explain why.

INM Ep 3: What Exactly is Integrated Non- Monogamy?
Intersectional/Integrated Non-Monogamy did not exist as a phrase until I coined it quite a few years ago. It involves discussing the actual history of non-monogamy and polyamory before the white mainstream stumbled onto it. It goes beyond simply discussing jealousy and compersion. It rejects slut-shaming or otherwise being ableist about STIs. It develops a concept of safer sex that is intersex/sex variant, trans/gender variant, and trauma-inclusive. You may hear this term used by nonBlack people claiming to teach it, so know your shit and get the real definition and praxis here. After all, ethics is not about talking points; it's about how you treat ALL the people, especially those you don't love romantically and/or those you don't want to fuck or who don't want to fuck you.
