Default I get slightly different ones,...

Sometimes, there is a automatic assumption, of what a 'poly' person must look like, or be into. Even by other poly people.

-I am not 'geeky'.
-Nor hippie, earthy, or yuppie.
- I am not a vegetarian. LOL.
-No desk job,
- Not Pagan,
....and I don`t like Starbucks. LOL

These of course, are funny stereotypes, not hurtful ones. It`s natural for people to want to label, and categorize, so they can relate it to something they understand. Where there is issue, is when people close their minds, from hearing anything that is outside of their initial concept.
