I previously mistook Dan's point of view as jaded and myopic rather than the refreshingly expansive explanation offered here. I've been out and proud for over 21 years. Most of that has been in the SF area and believe in the monogamy model. A lot of people do! It is not naive, Christian or "young Republican" for me or anyone else to have personal values. I do quite well with them and they help guide me in making tough choices. However, it is wrong to enforce these ideals on others. Our personal lives should be just that - personal. I've seen a lot more happiness and success in the rare monogamous partnerships of myself and others than "committed open" ones so that remains my goal. I also respect that many have a different take. Either way - no one should be judged for whatever relationship they and their partner(s) decide to have.
