The 2 root words in polyamory are poly, which is many and amor, which is love. There is no word in there for consensual. I'm not saying that polyamory -shouldn't- be consensual, only that it doesn't have to be defined that way, and in a few cases, it isn't. I have heard the argument that you can't love someone if you're cheating on them; it's an argument I've never believed, but you're welcome to believe this if you like.

Insulting someone says more about the person doing the insulting then the person being insulted. As to the quality of this discussion, I believe a good discussion involves diverse points of view, and that it has.
