My concern in coming out to people is that all of a sudden all they'll see me as is poly and bi. Rather than the way they see me now where my personal life really has no bearing on any kind of day to day interactions. I don't want just one aspect of who I am to take dominance in people's minds when it comes to defining me. I find that I'm more comfortable being out to people who I know won't really take issue with it or at least who I can let go from my life fairly easily. It's a slow process with me and I'm fairly deliberate about who I tell. So far I haven't had a lot of negative reaction but then again I've avoided telling anyone from whom I expect that kind of reaction.

I keep thinking that who I love and chose to be in a relationship with shouldn't be political or even a topic of conversation. As long as everyone is happy and healthy and no one is being taken advantage of what's the problem?
