A writer's ignorance on display, and community response
Some writers for mass media still don't have a clue, and when their incompetent editors don't either, this is what you get. UK Polyamory members are responding to this item, which appeared in the free public-transport paper UK Metro a few days ago:
People in UK Polyamory respond. One member posted, "In response to the terrible article in The Metro today, I made this":
If you want to send a note to the Metro's Health, Fitness & Beauty editor Vicki-Marie Cossar, who put the piece up on the paper's Twitter account, go join the crowd. She sounds contrite and promises to forward comments to the editor responsible for running such an uninformed piece. Someone asked about Metro publishing an article by a poly person in reply.
This is how you get results, and shame the careless into not being so careless next time.
However, it's a fact that bullshit artists out there are misusing the word "polyamory" to make themselves sound hip and with-it and to put a sheen on crappy behavior.
The article was in the paper Sept. 3, 2016.
