Some reason for the jackassery? I pointed out that a widely spread meme is all sorts of wrong because it obviously isn't accurate and sucks as a generalization. I never said others couldn't have a different experience.

When speaking of various forms of non-monogamy...it ain't poly if you're just fucking around.
