I agree that being poly is more than simply wanting multiple partners. Poly-sexual isn't polyamory, it's just being human. Polyamory is specifically about LOVE, so I firstly, I don't see how aromantic would enter into it. I also don't see how simply desiring more than one boyfriend at a time would be "being poly." Lots of people throughout time have wanted several dating partners - the Beach Boys even sang about it. You can't have a best girl if there are not other girls, too.

I'm all for inclusivity, but let's not get ridiculous. Polyamory is about LOVE, it's about romantic feelings, it's about visibility and consent. It's not about simply the desire for multiple partners.
