Default controversies in poly

Hi all, would you be so kind as to comment on these questions for a research project, preferable people in the GTA

These are the general questions I'm looking into

What are the set of ideologies/ideas that made you pursue polyamory? How do you define polyamory? what are the current controversies within the polyamory "movement"/"community" ( this question can be answered by exploring what exactly is " polyamory movement and community").
What social and cultural problems have you encountered (how do people react if/when you tell them about your choices)?
How much is sexuality a part of polyamory?
Why pursue polyamory despite it being relatively stigmatized in our society? Have you ever been in non-polyamorous relationships? How is polyamory different from swingers and other forms of sexuality?

How does an open relationship affect the position of the partners in terms of distribution of power and inequality? Would it make you feel better if your choices were approved by the state and general public?
Do you feel there is a stigma on people in open relationships? How does this hinder your activities (both sexual and non-sexual)? Is the stigma on the individuals or the concept of polyamory?
