This is similar to my own experience. I've had some dumb questions asked but mainly everyone seems to just pretend I didn't say it. Most people in my personal life know well enough to keep their condemnation to themselves else they risk an escort to the door.
As far as work is concerned, I approach my polyamory the same way I always have my atheism: if I'm willing to get burned down by some religious twat because they hate what they don't understand... then I should share it. If I'm NOT willing to go to war with some hillbilly then I'd better keep my trap shut. (note: I live in Texas)
