if you meet an asexual person, or someone who maybe is but hasn’t realized it yet, and see them as some sort of conquest, like you were “the” one that accomplished getting in their pants, then step away right now and stay away from that person because you suck
So I see tend to see certain songs that are actually quite sexual as more platonic, which I didn’t realize until recently when I started trying to pick up sexual innuendos in songs. For instance, it didn’t occur to me that “Get Lucky” was about sex until some guy pointed out to me that it was strange how much I like the song, considering how sexual it was. (This was before I knew I was asexual and this was a guy who manipulated me to get in my pants.) It’s interesting though; maybe it has something to do with my asexuality and the fact that sex is not really on my radar?
my anaconda don’t want none……at all, I’m asexual
Okay, I realize this hilariously late for Asexuality Awareness Week (which was last week), but due to unforeseen stressors, it didn’t really get done in time.
Anyway! I’ve wanted to do something like this for a while, and I’m proud of myself of actually getting a six page comic done within a week. (Not that it’s really anything super fancy, but it’s better than nothing lol) I do apologize for the massive ugly text wall that is page four but I had a hard time figuring out how to convey it visually while being kind of pressed for time.
oh and the occasional copy/paste, I’m sorry for that too
Enjoy! Click on the separate pictures if the text is hard to read.
So I totally missed national coming out day but I just thought that I’d announce that I’m asexual. Yeah, woo! I’m not going to Facebook yet, but this seems relevant on Tumblr.
Anonymous said: I am so sick of the ace hate on social media. With yesterday being national coming out day I saw all these stories and people saying to just be yourself which is awesome but they don't mean me. I get laughed at and called a plant. I have no real struggle and therefore can't really be queer or part of the community. I've been so supportive of them and all I want is the same support. I am so frustrated.
I’m so sorry you’ve been experiencing such awful erasure and invalidation. Know that we are all here for you <3
I don’t understand how you can say that, though, and then immediately follow that up with “I have no real struggle.” Isn’t that a struggle? Your identity is being erased and belittled - that’s a hell of a struggle. Trust me when I say asexuals do face a struggle; it just doesn’t look the same as the struggle that homosexuals face - which also is different from the struggle bisexuals face, or pansexuals, or any other sexual minority.
You are queer, whether the community accepts you or not. Trust me, this is a situation we are all struggling with. It’s highly hypocritical for a group specifically for marginalized people to turn around and contribute to the erasure of another group.
But you have this community, and together, we can work on these problems.
Really liking my new car! Something to get used to is the fact that when I press on the accelerator, there is a pretty good throttle response and it just goes like whoooosh. It’s so weird to drive an automatic after usually driving all stick Subarus!
Did you say clouds and sunsets?
This, especially the last one, is a perfect collage of sunset photos.
