I concur that anyone who is using a phrase, term, or idea to bash others or make their personal choices about their life wrong is out of line.

“So what, then, happens when someone tries to sustain multiple, diverse romantic loves at a time? Can they truly all be equal?” Well, speaking strictly for myself, I don’t attempt to make all of my relationships equal. They are apples and oranges, so to speak. If I wanted to get really nitty gritty, I’d say they serve different purposes. We like to talk about pie, and how there is no pie to divvy up. Maybe that’s a slightly different thing than infinite pie, although I do kind of like the visual image of that! 😁 🥧

In any case, I appreciate your exploration of this topic even if I don’t completely agree on every point.
