  • "You offered up a false dichotomy, & painted one of the two choices as of questionable morality (being less than polyamory).

    It's a commonly employed example of failed logic being used as a manipulative tactic. It neatly ignores the whole range of choices between two viewpoints, & as well the possibility that both may be simultaneously true, or false. In propoganda[sic] & politics, it's often used to besmirch someone's character without the need for actual facts or even simple logic." -- Ravenscroft 9/9/2017, 2 male 1 woman triad questions thread on polyamory.com

    If I've agreed to play soccer then I need to avoid using my hands, but if I (and everyone else on the field) am playing rugby then I don't have to do so just because it'd be against the rules if I was playing soccer.

    If the rules of my relationship include "you can have sex with other people" then having sex with others isn't cheating just because monogamy exists." -- Emm 5/19/2017, How to deal with being shamed by society's labels thread on polyamory.com

    "There are douchebags and there are poly people. There is over lap. However, being a douchebag does not make you poly and being poly does not make you a douchebag. In other words, a person's douchebaggery transcends their relationship status, sexuality, sex, race, religion and all that.
