Finding labels that fit me has helped me to feel more valid, seen, and connected with others.
Polyamorous Stereotypes Redefined
Labels have caused ostracization and have made day to day life challenging.
No one should ever judge someone based on their appearance.
I feel that poly especially need more "wholesome" and realistic representation. So that everyone can feel free to follow the truth inside them.
I saw the banner and knew I had to do it. Looking at me I know people make assumptions, and some are right... but some vital ones are wrong.
There is always a spot at my table, for companionship or for food.
Doing good takes effort but only benefits everyone.
Labels have always affected my ability to feel safe in the community.
