I went and did it myself. It should say "the writer just identifies him/herself"

I've re-read Positively Flustered letter a few times and I have to ask if it was abbreviated or cut short or something. I am asking because I find it odd that Peter Shalit has automatically pegged them as a gay couple. The HIV positive person is obviously a guy, but the writer just identifies himself with pronouns, none of which are gender specific. If there is part of the letter that we didn't get to see or some other confirmation of it being a gay relationship that I am missing, I understand. But if there isn't, something seems kind of wrong with that inference.

I'm sorry, but none of these letters mean that Dan is wrong. Just because someone feels like they can't be anything but poly does not mean that it is a sexual orientation. Sexual orientation is simply who you prefer sexually. Now I would agree that someone's sexual orientation alone may be incomplete in defining their sexual identity. In the one letter, the woman defined herself as bisexual poly. That is her sexual identity, but her sexual orientation is bisexual.
