I don't like being in closets. It's dark in there, fairly cramped, and there may be spiders.
Being out, no one cares really. The worst I've gotten is stuff along the lines of "I don't approve, but I'm not going to tell you how to live your life." It's quite annoying. I've prepared several arguments as to why polyamory is a valid way of approching relationships and I never get to use them.
When I tell people I'm polyamorous, the most common response is "Huh? What's that?" This is a problem. We're never going to get past the bullshit that prevents people from living openly if most people don't even know we exist. So, I mention it every chance I get. I honestly don't care if people accept it or not; knowing it's a thing that exists is more important.

There's also the "Yeah, it would be nice if something like that could actually work!" response that comes up sometimes. I'm like "It can, actually. People do it."
