I'd like to apologize as well. I missed in your post where you said us old white poly women had already been studied. I'd like to see links to those studies!
BTW, I am queer and genderqueer and have no problem with those labels. Quite the opposite.

There's no lying in polyamory!
I'm a 57 year old woman with 2 partners. I live with miss pixi. She's 35 (we've been together since Jan '09). I also have a bf, Ginger, who is 60, married, and lives a couple towns over from us. We've been together since Jan '12.
