And sex and drama will get those ratings.
I'd much rather see poly's on TV, even if they're not the sort that would date me, and have those conversations come up at work, than I would with the current conversations about Honey-BooBoo...
Oh absolutely, I'm all in favor of there being a show about polyamory and I do feel like, as sex-focused as PMD is, its still a good snapshot of part of the community.
As I said, I'm just a little worried that people who dont "speak the language" per say arent getting the message that Natalie thinks they're getting. From some of the dialogue I've seen online and in person, there ARE a fair number of people who missed the point.
