song against sex

You went all Zaboo on my Codex there :|

To whom it may concern:

It really bothers me how you think it’s funny when I get mad at something I believe is injustice, and how you never take me seriously, and how you accuse me of being asexual because I’m repressing my desire for you. Using asexuality as a CRUTCH?! Get over yourself.

So you’ll out me as non-hetero in an unsupportive environment, say you “don’t want to preach to me,” then offer sage advice like…

  • “It could be sisterly love.”
  • Maybe it’s your “sheltered life with just work or school all time.”
  • “Maybe you just need to spend more time with the Lord.”
  • Maybe it’s “a lack of social interaction.”
  • “It could be a mental thing.”

Oh yeah, I see how it works.

Too bad. We’re not the same person. Don’t think we are.

Bye. I can’t promise we’ll talk much anymore.

Not that kind.

Day 25: The LGBT slur you hate most or if you’ve taken back a slur and used it as a definition, ie queer or fag

Well, I use “queer” in a positive way when speaking inclusively of the entire non-heterosexual community. LGBT is a nice start, but what about pan-, demi-, and asexuals? What about genderqueer people who can’t identify with any of those labels? What about all the circumstances I can’t even think of at the moment? There’s such a huge variety of people represented in this catch-all label, I don’t think initials completely work unless you’re prepared to write out the entire alphabet every time you bring the subject up.

“Fag” and “homo” offend me to no end, though. I don’t usually launch into tirades about it though..I prefer to reject peoples’ attempts at slurs outright. Anytime someone uses any of these words in a derogatory way when conversing with me [e.g. “Ummm, okay, Adam Lambert is a FAG. I am NOT a fag. Therefore, we are not going to listen to Adam Lambert” <there’s logic for you!] I gush like they’ve just dished out the biggest compliment [e.g. “I knoooow, isn’t he fabulous? He’s got better eye makeup than any girl I’ve ever seen!”] and watch them dissolve into confusion. Kinda fun, actually.

Oh, and with regards to asexuality, I wouldn’t go so far as to call it a slur, but when people call you “broken,” it makes you want to punch them in the face.

Day 24: The stupidest argument/comment you’ve heard about gay people or an LGBT issue

How to pick just one?! Okay, if I had to narrow it down to a top three, I’d say:

  • Gay parents will churn out gay children.
  • Gay marriage will destroy the family, the country, and the world.
  • Tradition.

EDIT: I wrote this post before the work night when we all had this huge political argument, and now have a few additions:

  • Tab A, Slot B.

THIS from a straight guy who says he’s pro-choice and he doesn’t care what people do in the bedroom.

  • It’s a choice.

THIS from a straight guy who said yes, he chose to be straight, and his choice deserves legal rights whereas other choices don’t.

  • It was Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve.

THIS from a straight girl who denied being religious and claimed to be glad that the US isn’t a theocracy.

I work with a bunch of nincompoops!

Day 18: Something about the LGBTQ community you don’t understand or have a question about

All the hate! Both inside and outside. Wtf! Although honestly every once in a while I CAN understand it. Not that I agree with it or support it, but I was raised that way and I can still understand the way They think.

Day 7: How your parents took it or how you think they might take it

I haven’t told them and I’m not planning on it anytime soon. It’d be nice to have someone close to home who understands me, but at this point I’m not holding my breath.

  • My mother was bitching one day about a young bride who dared to wear jean shorts to her wedding reception, and I was in a pretty mellow mood so I simply said, “To each her own.” She then shot me the dirtiest look I can ever remember getting from her, and she said, “Well, I certainly hope YOU don’t plan on dressing like that for YOUR wedding reception!” Still mellow, still chill, I said, “Yeah, well, I don’t think I want to get married anyway, so you don’t have to worry about it.” She just about hit the roof.
  • My father found the link to this blog on my Facebook one night and barged into my room the next morning to wake me up and demand that I take it down. The link, that is. Thankfully he didn’t realize it’s my blog. Even though it has my name all over it, yeah. I believe his exact words were, “You need to take that asexual website down today. I was reading on it and it was pretty gross. You might agree with some of the things on there, but I found some things on there that NO ONE in this family would approve of. So take it down, or you’ll lose your internet privileges.” WTF.
