Default Male or female, if you could squish into one sentence, how would it be?

Answer honestly.

Obviously, you have only designed this poll for heterosexual folks.

Default Well, duh.

Sorry about that. Most people are in some form of heterosexual relationship, and I wanted to see how the results would go.

But then, I'm going to guess that most people reading all this do so anonymously, without registering. So... there's the flaw in that, pfffft.

There's a wiki for that
. There ought to be a closer trope. Without wanting to start arguments over definitions or semantics, it's simply not my experience that most *poly* people are only in heterosexual relationships.

The poll is also couple-centric, as it is focused only on what a person wants for themselves and just one partner -- as if those are the only two people who matter. It really isn't a very good poll for polys.

I've got a cis-gendered female body, I am genderqueer in my head and in how I like to fuck and do kink. I have a transgender gf and 2 cis-gendered male partners. We are all free to look at, lust after, flirt with, and fuck anyone of any gender (and I think there are 33 genders).
