Post A few words on prejudice

Hey all.
As someone who only recently came out of the poly closet (kind of forced out, actually) I've been experiencing a lot of prejudice, gossip and "slut shaming".
Fortunatly I have an awesome family and a few amazing friends and so far this didn't have a too much of a negative impact on my day-to-day life (despite being hurtful to me and my partners)

I'd love to know if this is something everybody has experienced, how do you guys deal with it, exchange a few tales and create a discussion, in general, about it.

I'll start with the three things I hear a lot (too much) about poly.
That this would only work on theory.
That I only say this because I didn't find the right person. (To which I respond: I did. I found two of them.)
That I don't understand ou have experienced "True Love" (This last one is really hurtfull for me.)

People also assume that since i'm too young (I'm in my early 20's) I'll eventually change my mind. "I'm too young to have really loved anyone", etc.

So what about you guys? Have you experienced/still experience prejudice? Are you still in closet in fear of it?
