Contra Monoganazism

Being a live-and-let-live sort of guy, I agree completely with Dan Savage:

I'm all for equal marriage rights for people who make monogamous commitments, despite their terrible track record. But the monogamous have to find a way to discuss their unnatural lifestyle choices that doesn't amount to an attack on those who made a more natural choice.
The rest of Savage's piece, which introduces the term "monoganazis" to the world (as far as I know), can and should be read in full.

I know lots of self-proclaimed monogamous people; many of them are friends of mine, and some are even in my family. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
