I am responding to this thread as an appendix to the current activism thread.
Vampire makes a good point- many will feel this way, but I for one think that being the only one standing up in a room full of thousands is an exhilerating, brave, and meaningful thing to do- because lots of those sitting don't know how to stand up or won't out of fear of being ostracized.
I am this kind of person. I enjoy being a champion for what I believe. I may not represent all, but I make an effort, and it takes all kinds of people to make a world- not just a group that are a community because of their identification with poly and the value system thereof- but a world bent on peace, tolerance and education rather than war, hatred and ignorance.
I hadn't read this thread before- lots of good points and discussion on all aspects of the issue at hand.
Much respect and appreciation to all those presenting their viewpoints as individuals-that's what it's all
