Who the hell do we think we are?

Shaun McGonigal (shaun@polyskeptic.com)

I was born and raised in Philadelphia. I attended a Quaker school (Friends Select School) for 13 years before moving on to college (BA ‘Religious Anthropology’) and later graduate school (MA Philosophy). I like to cook, drink good ale (especially Belgian), and I like to write.

I have previously been associated with some organizations in the Philadelphia area. I was previously board member of the Freethought Society, have previously been associated with the Rational Response Squad, and continue to be a part of the atheist and skeptic community.

In this blog I will talk about issues surrounding being an atheist as well as living a polyamorous lifestyle. Atheism, the lack of belief in any gods, is not a belief system so much as it is a conclusion that implies no other beliefs necessarily. Polyamory is having more than one open, consenting, loving relationship at a time. It is a lifestyle that takes maturity, honesty, excellent communication skills, etc. It is not for the guy/girls who just wants two girlfriends/boyfriends (etc) to have hot three-ways with (although that can happen).

I was raised as a conservative, homeschooled Christian. During my childhood and through my college years, my life pretty much revolved around the church and Christianity. I was the kid who helped my Sunday School teacher pronounce “Amalekites,” who won at Bible trivia, who got asked to lead small groups and mentor younger girls. I have actually read the entire Bible, although not in one continuous read-through. I have countless Bible verses, liturgical prayers, and worship songs burned into my memory, probably never to depart. Then, at the age of 25, I lost my faith; now I’m a proud and vocal atheist. In addition to my apostasy, I’m a sexual outlaw: I’m in a polyamorous relationship with my husband Shaun as well as other lovely people. I have a master’s degree in human sexuality, and may continue working for a PhD if I’m a real glutton for punishment. In my spare time I like to read, write fiction, knit, and sing.
