International Consanguinamory Day, Feb 28th?

on Thu 29 Jun - 22:53
As most of you have probably noticed, there is a thread in General Discussion about finding and adopting a day to be the official day where we celebrate consanguinamory. Between sleepingrain and Keith, I think we got somewhere, so let me run it by you (for those of you who don't want to read the whole thread).

It was suggested by sleepingrain that we have something close to Valentines day, but not quite. Then Keith considered our 'double love' and multiplied valentines day (14) with 2 (to signify double love... and of course the fact that February is the second month of the year) and therefore come up with the date of February 28th.

I'm doing this as a poll so you can all cast your votes. Would you like Feb 28th to be Consanguinamory Day?

oh if a better day presents itself (like, if something momentous happens), we can reconsider the date, right?

Of course we could, either that or celebrate those occasions as separate holidays in our calendar. There isn't any rule that we can't have more than one special day Smile

Is that because it's twice the number of months as well as twice the number of days? I never considered that before.

As much as I love the manipulation of numbers and finding patterns in them, I'd much rather have a date marking a significant event. Maybe the day some law was overturned, some court case won, or even the day KS was founded (if we're willing to be that self-centered).

But I do greatly support the idea of having a celebration day. Awesome idea!

A significant event would be awesome, though I couldn't think of one myself (except for KS's founding, but I don't know that date). I like having a day where we can count our blessings, even if we don't have other milestones.
FYM, if you don't mind me asking, why April 28th?

It's twice the days and twice the months after Valentines day.

Then April 28th would be fitting for two reasons, being twice the days in April from KS's founding. I'd be more inclined to go for April 14th, but U.S. members may not like that it's the day before income tax filings are due. That may not be relevant anyway because it looks like Feb. 28 is going to win the poll.

If I had been a member at the time, I definitely would have participated in the thread where choosing a date was originally discussed. Sad

Thing is, this forum will not be our permanent home, it is a temporary stop until we get our own domain. We've been making plans for some time now, and once I get enough money to invest in bitcoin for us, and am able to multiply them on short term investments... well, let's say we will have not just our own domain and forum, but our own social network too and a site large enough to host second copies of all the main blogs. We want a one stop shop as it were. I have several places bookmarked that accept anonymous BTC payments and are hosted in the Netherlands. I can't say what month it's going to be, but I can make a promise on next year being the year it all changes for us. I know this is something our community needs, and it will bring more people together in an environment that is even more safe and secure than what we have presently. Perhaps whatever date it goes online should be the date we choose?

I'm not sure at this point what date to pick, but closer to the time, I'll suggest that date, alongside all other dates suggested and then we choose. Whatever we pick should be meaningful, something consangs all over the world can identify with.

at least there's no urgency! and nothing written in stone
J.S., twice the days & months after valentine's day makes sense, but since FYM suggested the idea, I'd hoped he would respond - just in case he had another reason in mind. But you make a really good point about it being twice the days since this forum's founding (I was more curious about when Old-KS was founded). The founding of our super-site is another really good idea; I see that as our community's "coming out" day, in a way, because we might have a lot more visibility afterwards.

Open to other possibilities?

on Tue 5 Dec - 18:55
You might consider a specific day, i.e. World Marriage Day is always the 2nd Sunday in February; or just before, after, or even on Valentines Day, to accentuate to aspect of love, and equating your relationships to equal to, and fully legitimate as, Valentines Day.

Your might also consider changing the name to [b]Full Marriage Equality Day[/i], to draw attention to the cause, then change it to World Consanguinamorous Day later when you (we) decide that full marriage equality has been met.

Just my thoughts.

After careful thought, I think we should probably adopt April 28th until a better or more suitable date comes alone, nothing should be set in stone at this stage. Of course, we could (and should) make annual celebrations of any milestones we make in the movement. I know in the poll I only asked about Feb 28th, but in so many ways April makes more sense, double the months and double the days... TWO sets of doubling which symbolizes double-love.

I feel this works, though like you say, nothing should be set in stone yet. But I do like having a date to look forwards to!

"International Consanguinamory Day" is twelve syllables long. If the date's to be 4/28, I'd suggest trying for a name with 428 syllables. Very Happy

So... is it April 28th then?
I ask because, it's February 28th today, and wasn't sure if HappyConsangDay! was in order

Kind of like second breakfast for the Hobbits. Smile

Regarding a specific date - how about the date Incest was legalized under the Napoleonic Code?

21 March 1804

3-21

Double Valentines is also cool for the "double bond" thing. (I wonder if my sister looked at it that way when she said she could never love another man as much as me, not even a husband?)

But I don't think every sang person feels the "double bond." If we all did, then it would pretty much eliminate "bisang" wouldn't it? Why have relationships with nonsanguinous persons when you COULD have a double bond?

I don't know.

But 3-21 is like a countdown to ... fun Wink
