Change that to "some" and you've got a valid point. Otherwise, you're simply positing that most adults are incapable of evaluating circumstances and figuring out what their likely responses will be--and I find that unconvincing.

From my perspective right now, it looks almost cruel, at the very least thoughtless,
When speaking of various forms of ain't poly if you're just fucking around.

While polyamory, open relationships, and swinging are all distinctly different approaches to non-monogamy, they are not mutually exlusive. Folks can, and some do, engage in more than one of them at a time--and it's all good.
