Today, I join you all in celebrating Facebook's new inclusivity of gender identity. Still, I can't help but ask, "when will poly relationships be acknowledged?"
The Facebook group We Want A Polyamorous Relationship Status on Facebook is currently 11,000+ members strong. Currently, the only available option is "Open Relationship." Except that not every poly relationship is "open." When prompted to select who your relationship is with, none of the options allow you to input more than one name.
It may seem trivial, but as Facebook is more & more the platform with which we announce to friends & family what's going on in our lives, & sharing one's relationship status is a big part of that. Those practicing ethical nonmonogamy want to make use of it too.
