This posting isn't completely thought-through but I thought I'd just throw it in for dicussion.

First of all, my recommended reading of the day for this is affectingly's entry "Meta: Slut-Shaming, Monogamy, and Non-Monogamy in Star Trek" (including the various discussion posts), which is interesting and thought-provoking.

As someone who writes a kinky poly relationship, I frequently wonder how the future will look like in terms of acceptance of difference. Here an assembly of things I come up with.

1) Technical development and cultural development do not match.
(AFAIS, the first is exponential now, the second linear.)

2) History is full of liberal/conservative cycles.

3) Just because something might be allowed on planet A within the Federation doesn't have to mean it will be allowed on planet B.

4) When it comes to sex and relationship, humans frequently work on their prehistoric brain level.

5) Majorities will always try to tell minorities what they should do.

6) Religions will keep interfering.
(I don't use that in my fic because I dislike the thought, but I frankly don't believe religions will cease to exist.)

7) Racism will mostly find a new level, because humans keep thinking in terms of "we and the others".

Taking all of this into account, I don't see how the heteronormative monogamous system that currently rules the planet Earth will simply end. It will get less restrictive and easier to live outside the pattern, and within Starfleet, political correctness and acceptance of difference will be standard and when people violate that, they'll be the one to get a kick in the ass. But I doubt the same could be said e.g. about rural Iowa.

I hope that self-chosen "families" (tribes, packs) will be more common,but I'm not sure that will happen.

I doubt that name-calling of minorities will ever end, and I fear that many gender inequalities will likewise not completely disappear.

I don't think we're come really far compared to the old Greek, for example. Large parts of Earth are even quite medieval concerning their cultural level. Maybe the interdependence that modern technology causes will result in a generally more open society but that would be IMO quite a change from all the past cultural developments. It would have a new quality. (Which might be the next evolutionary step we need to take, hmmm.)

I wish I had a more positive view on future society, but I don't, really. So if you have greater hopes, I love to read your comments here. I might add new points when fitting :)

The pleasure of fandoms - always good for new knowledge. I had to look up what Figging really means - never saw it done, never heard/saw any of my friends doing it. Nettle play, however, is rather popular and someone should write it.

(Oh, and here is the figging story (ADULT) :)

Yum yum.

Taboo impulses can be titillating... but more often they're a source of concern for those who harbor secret wishes or unusual desires. If you prefer gallows humor to slapstick or kinky to vanilla, take heart: Dark inclinations have their own logic and benefits.

Yesterday, amazon and ebay won the worst websites to go to when you have time and money poll. And true to form, after watching pics of our four-in-hand trip with ponyboys, I looked into Ebay right now with the search term "GIG" (for small pony carts) and found a beautiful one that a) fits in our trailer and b) was payable and c) was running only 6 more minutes, so in a quick decision...

I BOUGHT THE BEAUTY!


We didn't even really have time to check all the details. But it fits all very well. OH THE PONYCARTING LOVE!

Now we need two new leather gears for the ponys and then we can show up at the CSD Cologne (gay pride parade) with it :) YAY!
