i think that's the attitude of most of us here, telling society to screw off because us being happy is more important to us than denying who we are so society can continue to coddle it's insecurities.

People can try to convert others to their beliefs or practices until the cows come home. No biggie. Lots of people have only lived monogamously because they didn't know or weren't aware there was any other way to be, so I see no problem with introducing them to the concept of polyamory or other forms of non-monogamy and being quite enthusiastic about it. I don't think there is some big moral quandary produced if a poly person tries to tell someone they should be poly, too. If a person doesn't want it, they are not very likely to adopt whatever is being proselytized to them. If the argument meant to convince them is unwelcome and the person is being pushy and obnoxious about it, they can just tell them to STFU.

I found your post very confusing. What, exactly is the "this" in your sentence?

An excellent blog post on hierarchy in polyamory:
