Home of the Whopper.

Dec 7, 2012 ssball commented on Savage Love.
The first letter is absolutely idiotic, and shows the LW's inability to get into the head of any other person in any way. The vast majority of people have the "ability" to love and fall in love with and be sexually attracted to multiple people. Most choose not to act on it. If "Poly" is a sexual orientation in the way the first LW described it, then nearly all people are at Poly. Most of us just don't act on it.

This isn't an indictment of the first LW's decision to act on it. If that's what makes him happy and he finds agreeable partners, that's totally what he should do. But the fact that he chooses to act on his polyamorous desires while many others do not does nothing to establish poly as an orientation.
