Stupid prejudices against polyamory

I´m not going to summarise her argument because it´s better to read her original article that you can find below. But let amuse or anger you with a short excerpt about the incredibly stupid prejudices that some people hold against polyamorous people:

I can only agree with that. Polyamory is ultimately a human rights issue: Theses on polygamy and monogamy.
