While I'm sorry anyone was offended by the term breeder, it is in part because you are attaching your own connotations to the word that werent my intent. I never said all people who want children are detestable. My own parents would fit into that mold. I don't make a habit of going around insulting people.

I do happen to live in the South, where the practice of following the ultra-traditional family path with procreation being the highest calling is pervasive and more than borders on cult-like and is highly oppressive. As I use the term (not how anyone else receives it), these are the people who are one category of people Im forced to relate to.

I stick by my original comment that a lot of people bring their own conventions into polyamorism and try to enforce it as normal. Live your life however you want as long as you're not hurting anyone. Just don't try to push it on me.
