Writing the Kinks Out
No you sickos, that’s not what I meant. I guess that the time has come to stand up, stretch, and work the kinks out of this blog before I plow on. I’ve gotten some responses that were not just negative (because negative I can handle), but which are downright RUDE.
So before I start again with some real, juicy poly content for you all, I want to say this: I don’t care if you disagree with me. In fact, some of my favorite discussions on this blog by far have been with Auria, who disagrees with a lot of what I say and demands clarification or defense of other things. The key is that she is respectful about it. I have a big problem with people who tell me flat out that I am wrong/bad/misguided, and it is even worse when it comes from poly people who decide that I have it “wrong”.
There are as many kinds of poly as there are poly people. This is my version, and this blog is an outlet for my thoughts. If something is “always” a particular way (like the definitions of words like “triad”), then I will tell you so. If not, I am pretty good at adding phrases like “I think” and “I feel” to describe MY OWN EXPERIENCES.
I use a pen name for safety and for my career’s sake, but other than that… this is my LIFE. I am not some computer attempting to define a lifestyle, I am living it, and this is what I’ve learned.
And to the rest of you lovely and wonderful people… thank you for sticking with me. I promise something better tomorrow.
