It just doesn't matter
I know I'm fairly new to the forums, but I'd like to emphasize a point. I think there's far too much attention to the fact that the folks picked for season 1 of the show fit a certain demographic. Yes, they all appeared somewhat fit or what's otherwise been described as skinny. Yes, they all seemed to be earlier in age (although I'd debate that comment regarding the pod, only in comparison to my age). I think what matters most are two things. One, the fact that these people felt compelled and compassionate enough to come clean with all who would watch and tell their story is admirable. Two, I feel the fact that they've come to recognize and embrace what they want for themselves regarding their life choice is also admirable. If only more polys were less inhibited by society, family and work I think we'd live in a much better world.
