I know, I know, don't engage trolls. But…

I responded to a YouTube vlog about "Monogamous Homosexual Relationships." It was a bland, but reasonable Vlog entry, though I didn't like the use of the word "promiscous." I wrote:
My husband and I have been together for coming up on 23 years, and we were only monogamous for the first six months. Non-monogamy isn't cheating if the "rules" of your relationship allow for it. "Promiscuous" is a fairly useless word, How do you define it? From whose point of view? Is it number of sexual encounters? How can it be when the healthy number of encounters for one person is unhealthy for another. How about the nature of those encounters? Are they affirming? Are they self-destructive?

I got an unsurprising response by someone who knows his (or her?) mind:
that is not a husband is more like a friend with benefits, i believe in monogamy open relationships are for people that dont respect their own body. first of all you are not married, second you are just a slut.

Which I should have ignored, but…
JUST a slut? I am a husband, son, uncle, employee, citizen, artist, friend AND a slut! I'll thank you not to ignore my other roles.

I await a response!
