Hell, yeah, sistah! It is so very refreshing to read this! I love to see a woman stand up for herself and not tolerate any bullshit. Gosh, we see far too many women here putting up with all kinds of crap just because they're in a poly situation and don't know whether they can establish a boundary or not. Good for you. Any guy who holds onto a double standard and disrespects and slut-shames you for wanting the same things he wants should be out on his ass on the curb, with the locks changed!
