Gotcha.

I do have friends who've pretty much turned against P because of his being poly, so I do understand that for some folks, being close to such a situation would be something that would be unacceptable for them. Or it'd be something they made snide comments about once in a while, just to make a point.

Here's to surrounding ourselves with people who recognize that we all come with different life experiences. Vive le difference...
