Was polygamy allowed when that law went into effect? No, because it was already illegal. Prop 8 stopped gay couples from marrying. It changed nothing about polygamy. Polygamy was illegal BEFORE/AFTER Prop 8. And don't try that ridiculous "IF" there were no other laws excuse.
Sex at Dawn: The Prehistoric Origins of Modern Sexuality, by Christopher Ryan and Cacilda Jethá, is gaining a lot of mainstream attention and has edged onto the New York Times bestseller list. It explains, in breezy language and massive detail, the reason why humans the world over are failures at monogamy. It also examines the roots of human nature in other key regards.

They're paranoid and close minded thinking polygamy is just a plot against SSM, they forget these are good people seeking marriage equality just like them.
Polygamy is marriage. It is not a plot against SSM, how self centered they are!
I do not see polygamy as a threat against gay marriage in anyway either. Maybe one of them will struggle with coming up with an answer?

Prop 8 was simple. It defined marriage as ONE man and ONE woman. Banning BOTH polygamy and SSM EQUALLY. What don't you understand about ONE man ONE woman banning polygamy? It's a simple concept really.
It sure seems simple enough. You make perfect sense. If only one man can marry one woman then one man can't marry two women and one man can't marry a man. Why would anyone use the judgeits against you like that? Would they judge you if you said today was January 24th?

Miss Thing, a law that defines marriage as "ONE man and ONE woman ONLY" bans polygamy. How silly you get to argue otherwise!
The people who brought you prop 8 had polygamy in mind when they put the "ONE" in it.
How can you argue otherwise? Why do you argue otherwise? What a dope! You get so silly.
Miss Thing. You can't ban something that is already banned.

Sure you can. Prop 8 did.

Please be honest for once and answer my simple question. Did prop 8 allow polygamy? WE KNOW it was already against the law. Did prop 8 not say ONE man ONE woman only?

Someone who tries to argue that "one man one woman only" isn't relevant to polygamy obviously has ulterior motives.

Why is a loving marriage of three consenting adults a bad idea? Suppose you and two other guys all felt you wanted to marry and form a family? Why do you want to limit your options? Why not leave the possibility open?

There was a case described in the Advocate of three gay men wishing to marry. It was touching. I am rooting for them, why aren't you? If you got to know a happy poly family you'd have to have a very cold heart to wish to deny them rights that you enjoy.

Marriage is good for society. Even marriages you for whatever selfish reasons don't approve of.
