Now, this is certainly a strange topic for an article, isn’t it?
But hey, to each their own, right?
Well, that’s easy to say when you’re on the outside looking in, but, as you’re about to see, this person has some major issues about the way he was raised…and about the behavior of his parents…
This was posted in Reddit’s “Am I the *sshole” forum and it concerns a person confronting their parents about their polyamory when they were growing up.
For those of you who don’t know, polyamory is defined as “the practice of engaging in multiple romantic (and typically sexual) relationships, with the consent of all the people involved.”
The person gave some background about the whole situation with his parents.
Why wouldn’t they accept it? They were just a little kid, after all.
But as they grew older, their parents didn’t really keep their lifestyle a secret from them anymore.
And they’d sometimes come home to find strangers in the house.
This person didn’t realize it was odd or different, but that definitely didn’t mean they liked the polyamory.
In fact, they hated the whole situation and they realized they never felt very close to their parents because of it.
And then their parents dropped a pretty big bombshell on them.
And they decided to finally let their parents know how they felt about what they’d been dealing with since childhood.
As you can imagine, the parents did not take it well.
But they did hear from their parents later on and the father wants to have a discussion about things, which the person is on the fence about.
So the big question is, is this person wrong for what they said to their parents?
Reddit has some thoughts… and pretty much everybody sided with the OP.
Basically, Not The A**hole.
No, not at all.
Because it’s definitely their fault.
It’s also not polyamory’s fault either.
Okay, now we want to hear from you.
In the comments, tell us how you feel about this strange situation.
We’d love to get your take on it! Thanks!
