Default Feminist theory and Polyamory - should we be more strident?

I just finished reading A Critique of Pure Relationships: On Consent and Compulsory Monogamy and was reminded again of the link between monogamy and patriarchy. It led me to think more dimly of all the social supportst that monogamy is accorded in society. And really wonder how to continue to push against patriarchy, gender roles, gender stereotypes, and homophobia...

What do you guys think?

(note: I didn't post in Press and Media Coverage because the article doesn't appear to be either)
