Am I the only one that gets annoyed as hell at how polygamists of various stripes are grouped in with others that could not be more dissimilar? I have seen lots of examples of it but the most recent one was when I was curious about if there were any polygamist groups in my local area who were meeting for the proverbial fellowship and support network etc. I jumped on google, put in my search criteria and up comes meetup.com. When there was nothing near me I opened the search parameters up and dropped the distance restriction. Apparently I might be interested in poly nymphos, open marriages and swinging according to the various meet ups that I was offered. Yeeeeeeah... I don't think so. I know how the search function works and why the poly prefix pulls up these other distasteful shenanigans but that is not so much what I am getting at re the annoying reference. I have encountered over the years several occasions where people have made similar assumptions without the help of a search engine. It has gone so far as to have both my senior wife and I propositioned by a couple we have known for years when we explained the direction we were taking the relationship and the additions to the family. How the hell does that work in peoples mind I wonder...we are wishing to expand our maaaaaaaaaarriage. Add people to the marriage, as in growth of a family, no reference to or implication of becoming open to the notion of extra curricular whoopee time activities. How does saying to people 'Hey, we are so into this whole marriage lark that we want to be married to more people and have more kids' translate to all of us should slather ourselves in baby oil and jump into a pile together? This is an extreme example and I am using a liberal sprinkling of hyperbole for effect but it is not an isolated example. Bloody hell. I can not be the only one who is getting painted with the swinger and or poly network slatterns brush.
