Yeah, I see what you mean... you'd think this comment section was run by "Intense Debate" or something. Hardly anything in that that might make you expect to see people... debating intensely.

And again, who decides what is "normal"? From my point of view, and by YOUR OWN DEFINITION, poly is normal to me. Because I know more people who are poly than not.

I do this. I am ABSOLUTELY committed to my primary partner, as he is to me. And he has a couple of other partners he is ALSO committed to, as am I in that they are part of my close group. All others, his and mine, which are more casual - maybe not people we commit to beyond a certain level, but they are treated with the utmost respect. I am not an attention whore (except for online, I tend to stay more or less in the background most of the time, it is where I am comfortable.) I'm not on drugs, I wasn't molested as a kid. Any other criteria? Oh, and do not excuse ignorance in one area by citing your "enlightenment" in another. You can't just say, "Oh, well I'll give ya the gay thing, so **** off with the poly".

This one part of your argument is absolutely valid: "I simply don't like this, it seems very wrong to me." ABSOLUTELY, undeniably, your right to your own opinion. As I have a right to mine, and my own way of life. Like everyone else.

And you know this because... that's how it was when YOU were in a poly relationship??

Who are you to assume that YOUR hardwiring is the same as mine?

No... actually, if you don't get jealous, it means that you DON'T have "deep-rooted issues".

1) The benefits of poly (more love, more support, etc) far outweigh the fairly minor inconvenience of condoms.

2) Partners can always get fluid-bonded with partners that they trust, and then just use condoms with more casual partners or otherwise non-fluid-bonded partners.

3) How does a condom keep me from being as close as I could possibly be to a partner, assuming the emotional connection is the most important thing?

STI's are relevant to anyone who is sexually active, including mono people (btw, anyone I know who's had an STI, all got 'em from their "supposedly" mono partners). Just not any MORE so as a result of poly. Stupid breeds disease. Ignorance breeds disease. Poly does not breed disease.

Sooo... what the hell does a poly relationship have to do with STI's though? Btw... poly people that I know - and that is a LOT of poly people - are also the safest people I've ever met. "Mono" guys used to routinely want sex without condoms. Poly people, NEVER. Not in my experience.

And yeah... you guys need national health care (I'm Canadian), but that's a whole OTHER kettle of very stinky fish.

Actually, I'm not sure I want to "get" the likes of you.

Uh... sooo... are you idiots assuming I'm a guy?? NOT that it should matter - assault is assault. Still - gaydar? I don't get it.
