Buddhism in the West can be quite varried on matters like polyamory, "homosexuality," and sexuality in general -- among many other things. It appears to me that as contemporary/modern "the West" continues to embrace the Buddha's dharma, that dharma often becomes modernized, updated -- and increasingly distinquishable from various rather conservative cultures, e.g., Tibet, Japan....

Much of Buddhist culture, and many sanghas, etc., are almost as unappealing to me as, say, a fundamentalist Christian church. As far as I am concerned, if a sangha isn't feminist, sex-positive, body-positive, this-worldly, pro-democracy, anti-racist, engaged (with continuing lapses in social justice, animal welfare, economic injustice...), it's just more popycock on a stick.
