    Poly people get the same thing for a different reason. Not that we're icky, exactly, but we're lascivious freaks who make straight people think that sexual minorities are not nice, clean-living straight-laced folks just like themselves.

    Don't get me wrong--pushing the notion of "We're just like you, really!" has been strategically great for sexual minorities, in general. HRC is great at this approach. To it we owe the death of DADT and the recent progress in marriage equality. But those of us who have a harder time mirroring heterosexual culture back to itself are going to have a harder time making hay out of this approach, and often we end up marginalized by it.
