Thread: o/ Louis Theroux Altered states

  1. #1

    o/ Louis Theroux Altered states

    Did anyone see this last night?

    Basically Louis visited Portland (the sort of place John 2 probably visits)and met a load of couples and individuals who were into polyamorous marriages and relationships.

    It was obvious from the beginning that some who claimed they were happy with the situation were in fact extremely depressed and unhappy about it. For me the chubby bloke was a suicide risk.....really messed up.

    I found it weird to be honest and very self-centred....they all had these precocious, right on kids, who were also supposedly okay with it. Lets see in 10 years time shall we?. If you are a private psychiatrist get yourself to Portland because there will be a generation of people who will be throwing money at you soon, to try and sort their mess.

    At the very end, as the credits were rolling, it said that one of the couples, who were expecting a baby (the mother copped off with another bloke while she was heavily pregnant) were not going to assign a gender to their child.

    These trendies are screwing their kids up......all for the sake of being hip.

    Oregon is a beautiful state unfortunately full of left-wing crazies, many of whom moved from California after they messed that state up.

    Yes! I bet my pal at work that GF would post in support of the op within 2 hours and mention the words 'Left Wing'!

    My daughter has been offered a job in Portland starting next October after she graduates from Uni. Should I be worried? I would be except she could stay here in Seattle where it's 10x worse.

    Don't label. I don't agree with polyamarous relationships. it's not a left wing trait to want to be polyamarous

    That's right but regarding the programme last night, they were definitely all pinkos.

    Polyamorous? Has anyone alerted the RSPB?

    I have to agree, the chubby bloke (Jerry?) definitely didn't look happy with the arrangement and I think Louis summed it up perfectly when he suggested Jerry tolerated it because if he didn't then his wife would likely leave him. When Jerry's wife had her boyfriend over and she informed Jerry it was his turn to sleep alone upstairs you could see on his face he was in distress about the whole thing but somehow kept that very creepy measured tone going when he said it was "cool."

    I think the overall concept behind the idea, ie marriage and monogamy in particular being outdated concepts may have some merit, but I saw nothing on Altered States to make me believe that polyamarous relationships are a happy way forward.

    Presume Portland Oregon? I live close (in Beaverton actually), it is a bit weird and they take great pride in it, even adopting the slogan 'Keep Portland Weird'. We have a pretty big homeless problem but apart from that, it feels like one of the safest places I have ever lived.

    There's a video online where the Portland police stand around while Antifa attack Trump supporters.

    The Mayor is a right-on SJW type.

    Portland, San Francisco, Austin, they're the American versions of Brighton.

    South park has done a good job of lampooning the kind of people who live there, they drive electric cars and eat organic food and think they're better than everyone else.

    The people on that Remainer "people's march" would be the UK equivalent.

    There are also videos of Proud boys alt right beating up Antifa. Same lads that were then arrested in NY for beating up people, also making White Power signs. Your point is?

    OregonMiller, my brother in law owns Croakers Crossing Farm in Beaverton. He’s obsessed with healthy and organic produce. Worth a visit. Small world.

    That the police should maybe do something.
