At least the article wasn't dripping with sarcasm, it just had the usual hand-wringing paranoia. Actually Jennifer LeClaire is helping the poly movement, going by the "any press is good press" philosophy. Anyone who reads her article is going to get an earful about a practice they may have never heard of before. Now, far from stirring up outrage, she may have them curious to learn more.
It's encouraging to me that poly is becoming well enough known that even its enemies feel compelled to acknowledge its existence. It's no surprise if they do so in a hostile way of course.
Love means never having to say, "Put down that meat cleaver!"
