Letters from Proxima Thule

I get what you're saying. In the past, I have said some kind of awful things (unintentionally and thoughtlessly) to my bi and poly friends, due to the kind of impressions one gets from having the most vocal and public faces to which one is exposed give the appearance of being the least genuine.

It took living with a poly couple who weren't drama mongers or proselytizers to get that even if I can't live that way myself, some people do without harm or unhapiness. It took watching friends fall in and out of love with different genders to realize that "bi" could mean more than drunk college boob-touching.

Basically, it took ten times as long to undo a negative misapprehension, because the people quietly getting on with their lives are less visible.
