Newsweek is a pretty large circulation, mainstream magazine. I haven't yet read the whole piece, but I strongly suspect that this article will have quite a cultural ripple-effect. Look for a show on Oprah before long!

Well, if it becomes the hip new thing I'm not doing it! I like to be a non-conformist. Guess I'll just have to stay mono.

Whoa- the comments are amazing. I am halfway through and I have to stop because it's finals week and I have exams in the a.m.

There are some cool cucumbers on there combating the hatred and fear. To my eyes the polys are exhibiting just how self-aware and intelligent they are against the flow of ignorance- hostile and otherwise.

Awesome, well written, info packed article- I didn't mind the presentation of other groups in relation to poly, or the viewpoints of those against it, because it was fair and balanced, and any bias was clearly attributed to the source.

Except for this- I found the humor indicated that the journalist's gears were starting to turn in a very positive and familiar direction-the only bias I caught was Ms. Bennet's own curiosity and delight at the concept of poly

I suspect the article and surrounding coverage will prove to be a watershed moment for the poly community. An even look at poly in a periodical that is large enough to garner attention from other MSM--a solid step to mainstream acceptance of poly.
