They in fact could be the aberration instead of the norm we suppose!
Most poly groups do. But a lot of poly people associate "lifestyle" with swinging. Some poly people would not want to be associated with swinging so therefore might take issue with someone discussing poly as the "lifestyle." Doesn't mean swinging is frowned upon necessarily by all, just that its confusing for some and found as being inaccurate as poly is about loving relationships and swinging is about sport sex.
