If you want to know whether someone is more "scientific or spiritual," you have to tell them what you think those words mean before you ask them which camp they're in. This poll is so vague and nondescript, and now you've come to conclusions about some of us who responded just because we asked questions. But it is a silly poll, asks superficial unclear questions, and doesn't make any sense whatsoever. Is English is a second language for you? Just wondering.

MF,

So what is the point of the poll? If you tell us what you are tracking, more people may actually take the poll.

I see you have 5 respondents, including myself so far.

MisogynisticFeminazi , I love polls and leapt into this thread to participate but agree that further clarity is required. I believe in "endless love", or what I'm guessing you mean by that, but here's the thing from my experience- I didn't even realize I wanted to love everybody at the same time on a "spiritual" level until I started analyzing my emotions and relationship history in a pretty clinical, "scientific" fashion.

If I had to take a stab at what you think you mean with this poll I'd guess you mean the two sides could be explained as:
  • "I never thought about it really, I just want to love and fuck everybody!"
  • "After reading Sex at Dawn it seems logical that monogamy is both unnatural in the context of human genetic imperatives and has a net detrimental effect on society, therefore the logical conclusion is that I should be nonmonogamous to better myself and humanity."

Am I close?

Lol, and the idea that a poly person has to hold one or the other of those opinions (and not neither, or both) is utterly ridiculous.

I know at least one thing that isn't scientific: this poll.

Well, if you use the "I wanna love it, and hug it, and squeeze it, and call it George. Oh, and fuck the shit out of it too" example as spiritual, I'm not spiritual.

If you want to use the logical approach that monogamy isn't natural and we are all genetically wired, then I'm not scientific either.

I love polls as well, but when I clicked on this thread I was just as perplexed as most of the other posters. The questions aren't worded very clearly, and I feel they are too general to answer anyway.

Also, I find it unfair that the OP should make judgements about people that have posted after only a few replies. That seems weird. How can the OP possibly know anything about anyone after that? Ask a couple of questions to clarify the poll and suddenly you are this or that? I don't think so.

I'm just wondering why the scientific female option is worded so crassly whereas the other options aren't.

I also found this to be odd. The whole thing is making me scratch my head
