7:00 Topic: Someone in the poly community makes me uncomfortable. What do I do?
Your choices are these:
- If you have experienced abuse, report the person to a safety report, if your community has them. Alternatively, propose safety reports.
- Leave the community entirely.
- Choose to attend events where the person is less likely to show up.
- Attend whichever events you like and cope with your unease.
- Start your own poly event.
- Limit your poly to private events with people you do trust—call three poly friends to go to a movie, for example.
