So, our old clothes could be funding the consumption of large quantities of Malt Liquor and Cocaine?

There is definitely a 'pussy breath' joke in there somewhere.

The bit I am confused by is that the person with whom he communicated wasn't a child - so even if his intent was immoral, how does his act come to be criminal?

isn't 'But she could simply say, "oh, I figured we were done with that. Feel free to make other arrangements if you like."' being rather unilateral?
Why can't she just say "I am not being sexually fulfilled, do you want to fix this or would you rather I go elsewhere?" they seem reasonable options which should be presented before the act.

@30 "taking stool from a donor and inserting it in the patient" no it isn't!
It involves dilution to a practically clear liquid and injecting higher up the intestine.

I'd be grateful if any poly expert could explain the point of (even considering) having sex with someone to whom you are not attracted - is that supposed to flatter said someone?

I don't see how IDGAF is being a coward - he's seems to be asking "how do I tell people who insist something is wrong ..?"
I agree it takes courage to say to close family and friends: "guess what, I don't conform to your expectations" but the challenge is how to demonstrate that you are not dysfunctional without seeming defensive.
I guess you just have to keep saying "I am happy, you need to believe me" seems a bit lame but that's the best I can come up with when my family asks.

I think this is a case of there being no such thing as bad publicity.
Thinkers, people who are more likely to change their opinions, will see through the pearl clutching gaspers and see Dan's argument for what it was.
To those with already closed minds - saying that there is BS in the bible is the same as saying it all is. These people were never going to be won over.

Apology not necessary.
All I saw was a bunch on young people unwilling to listen to any challenge to the basis of their entire belief system - of course it is going to hurt but it isn't bullying.
Bullying would be to say that all christians are dirty, damned, diseased and immoral; some christians meet some of these criteria some of the time but these words don't define christianity any more than they define homosexuality.
Yet this is essentially what groups like Focus Of The Family believe is an acceptable view to hold - with christian love.
