Angry Polyamory on The view

I happened to walk into my boss' office while this was on her tv, and it really pissed me off. I think Dr. Drew is an asshole anyway, but I don't understand why they even bothered to have these people on the show if they didn't want to actually hear their stories. Instead, Dr. Drew and the weird host lady just wanted to freak out about you can't have deep intimacy with more than one person. It made me so angry, I forgot what I had gone in to talk to my boss about.


- Moonlight, single, leans monogamous, girlfriend since 6/2012
- Punk, married guy, poly, FWB since 9/2011 with an emphasis on the "F"
- No longer lives with ex-boyfriend Fly (1/2006 - 12/2013, my introduction to nonmonogamy, ultimately amicable breakup), and his 10-year-old son Kiddo

Oh, I've met Diana and Leon - they are both the nicest people in the world! Diana Adams in an attorney who advocates for poly families, and Leon is the current Pres. or Co-Pres. of OpenLoveNY. He's like 6'7" tall and totally hot.

Is that female host Jenny McCarthy? And is she dressed for Halloween or something? Egad!

Well, I think they expressed and stood up for themselves very well, despite the negativity being tossed their way.

An excellent blog post on hierarchy in polyamory:
