This has come up in other threads- the general consensus seems to be that people who are poly (or poly-supportive), either by choice or by nature, are more willing to go against the mainstream in other areas of life. In my V we have an ex-Jehovah's Witness, an ex-Catholic, and an ex-Baptist. Two of us are pansexual. All of us are gamers and anime geeks. So being in a poly relationship is just one more way we don't fit the mold. Sometimes, yes, it can feel liberating. Other times it just feels exhausting to have to deal with the fight to be treated with the same consideration and respect as those in the mainstream.
