But anyhow... polygamy is a different issue all together.
It has been acceptable at some point in time in most societies, even considered necessary. In our culture today, we generally maintain that women have the same rights as a man, in most cases, and are able to provide for themselves. This generally isnt the case in societies where polygamy is common place (ala, Islamic countries). What is a woman to do in places like those, if she becomes a widow, etc etc?
I think there is a very strong argument against polygamy in today's society from the position of women's rights. It seems most polygamists in the west generally ensnare the ladies when they are underage and keep them uneducated and brainwashed... basically slaves on a baby farm.
Gay marriage does not make the argument against polygamy any weaker.
A gay community with all gay marriages will die out in 1 generation.
