            I wasn't being sarcastic smile  I gotta ask though, as I am quite ignorant on this one, are there lesbian Mormons?  Cause I gotta tell you, I've always wanted to see the underwear close up... and there's definitely an in for me there...

              I don't think any religion escapes having LGBT members, whether out or closeted. So I'm sure there are, at all levels.

      Fascinating question. Although....

    Bi Mormons have the most difficult time making sense of it, most likely. There's a built-in redundancy there.

    and should such groups not be termed 'Morwomon' ?

    Homosexuality tends to get yoyu thrown out of the church, which no longer practices multiple marraige.

    In case you actually wanted that answered.

      are there not people who still have multiple wives?  I think my wife makes me watch a show about one such family

      1. psycheskinner profile image80
        psycheskinnerposted 5 years ago in reply to this

        They are from small groups that split of the Mormon church decades ago.  The recognised Church does not allow multiple marraiges, or homosexuality.

          i wonder if these small groups include those that recognize gay marriages?

    Since the church, at this time, does not practice polygamy, not even a problem. My guess is the fact the LDS (Mormon) church is against same sex marriages, this would pose an interesting question should everyone up and start practicing polygamy.

  6. Daniel Carter profile image90
    Daniel Carterposted 5 years ago

    Interesting tidbit is that even though polygamy started by the Mormons is now very frowned upon by the mainstream church, and an overwhelming majority of mainstream Mormons are against it, the break off sects blame the mainstream church as apostates for not keeping the original "directive" from God. Now add to that LGBT community in the Mormon church, whether closeted or out, and you get a pretty varied dynamic about human relationships.

    That sounds about normal for anywhere among humanity, to me.

    As LDS,as far as I know,no. But looking from a mundane,sexual, and purely psicologycal pint of view, Isn't that the bigest fantasy in the male pshyqi? FLDS, the ones that do still practice polygamy, can house up to 12 wives in one household. The basic male fantasy , to have their own harem. What goes on there I dont' want to know. Faith and sex is a tricky subject and it need to be adressed in such matter.

    Besides, There goes to show you how naive men are, they cant handle one woman, yet still lie to themselves thinking they can make more than one woman happy.This would be the same with a lesbian household...

      Greek Oneposted 5 years ago in reply to this

      I have never been too concerned with making 'the woman happy'

      I figure if I had twelve wives... one of them would HAVE to be in a good mood at any given point in time

          LOL, you are completely discounting the ability of women to be irrationally angry at a man they've never met simply because another woman is angry at him.  My guess would be if you pissed one of them off, you would piss them all off.

    As a Mormon, that is one question I've never had before....although I do always get the question "What's the weirdest question you've ever been asked about being Mormon?"

    I think I now have a relatively interesting answer.

          How many sister wives do you have?

          If you do not have any sister wives, do you hate that show on TV where that dude has those wives?

          If you do hate that show, do you resent your spouse for making you watch it as much as I do?

            Sister wives? Hold up there cowboy! I'm eighteen.... and yes, I know Mormon girls get married ridiculously young, but I just turned eighteen. I'm not married and I don't see marriage anywhere on the horizon.

            As for the show, I've never seen it. Doesn't bother me. They belong to a tiny off-shoot of the Mormon church (I think) and I couldn't care less what other people do with their lives, however weird it may be.

              when I was your age I was already married to 4 women and had 6 kids... but then again that was back in the 1800s, and times have changed.

              Can one be a faithful Mormon yet choose to where woman's lingerie?  What if that someone was a man?

                Impressive. I wish I could live up to such inspirations as yourself. My only dream in life is to be married and have a plethora of fat babies.

                And I have no idea. I know plenty of Mormon girls who wear lingerie. I'll have to ask my male Mormon friends about their lingerie habits. Purely for scientific research, though, of course. wink

                  I just want to know in case I decide to open up a Victoria's Secret in Salt Lake.... or a gay bar (which I would name Victor's Secret)

                  How many is a plethora?  8...9.. Duggar-like 20+?

                    Don't do it in Salt Lake. Do it in Provo, Utah where the Mormon college BYU campus is located (Where I go to school, coincidentally). We actually do have a Victoria's Secret. No gay bar's though.

                    Plethora being as many as my husband wants. I live to serve him, of course. We forbid thinking in all forms, so therefore, it is not up to me.

                    In fact, I really shouldn't be here. I'm a terrible sinner.

    I can't see what would attract lesbians to Mormonism, unless it is the side parting and those chunky shoes.  But as the Mormon church has found it hard to understand that there are black people in the world, I can't imagine them extending a welcome to lesbians.

    Wow.  The question asked in this thread confused me.  I can't even attempt to sort that out and come up with an answer until I have some more coffee.

    Meanwhile - other questions this raised:    When, exactly, and how many wives have to be dead, before a polygamous husband is considered a widower????  One?  All?  Three?  x percent? (and is there such a thing as being an x-percent widow until 100% of the wives are dead?  but what happens if they're replaced, and the percentage is always subject to change?  AND, in a polygamous, Lesbian, marriage; (assuming the term, "widower", has been defined), how many people are widows, who are they, and when exactly?  But also, is there ever such a thing as a partial divorce in a polygamous marriage; and if there isn't, what makes a 100% divorce?
