commented on SL Letter of the Day: Poly Problems
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.

Am I really the only one that has my 'Fake' alert sounding?
How does a daughter accidentally find evidence of her Dad advertising on gay hookup ads? How in hell would she find out about her Mum getting crabs unless some major family drama played out years ago ... or was it just a passing comment: "oh yeah, your dad gave me crabs ... that was annoying, oh well, tsk." WTF?

Beautifully written, something that we should all read *because* it is heartbreaking and an example of what life, love and marriage is all about.
Can't imagine Newt being there like this, can you?
