I might be grumpy -- I'm broke and out of coffee!

I'm sorry it sounded like I was attacking you. I didn't mean you were irritating. I meant the idea that I was interpreting from your statement was irritating to me. I'm sure I'm a bit sensitive about it. I just felt that there was a bit of a dismissive tone toward people who see polyamory as a choice rather than an identity. But I could have just read into it. And yes, I edited that post from saying disrespectful to dismissive because I knew "disrespectful" wasn't it. I don't think of you as disrespectful. I brought it up because it's something I've been wanting to address, since it's come up a few times recently, and your post seemed the perfect opportunity to respond with my take on it. But I did elaborate some more in the "Division" thread.
