My DD is a mature 12. My dh loves Big Love on HBO. I've seen it off and on, the acting is great, but I've not followed it too closely. We were discussing what we were going to watch tonight and why she wasn't invited stay up with us.
So, she asked what it was about, and I described what I think is wrong about polygamy (patriarchy, roles-based power...) She cut to the chase and asked why this was different than gay marriage or abortion, e.g. the majority imposing their will on the minority when no-one's really hurt. I imitated a fish and sent her to bed :-).
Edited to add: OMG - Beach Boys tune "God only knows" as the entry theme - that's good stuff.
