..I think I didn’t publish it because I was afraid it would be seen by the wrong people. This is from September ’10.

I JUST NOW figured out what this song means. After seven years.

XD And now I’m really excited, becaaaaause.

I used to identify with it because of the Earth Day reference.

Now I have another reason.

 



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.



I came out on Facebook and nothing has burned down yet.

No, on the contrary, I got this response:

“I think this is really great.
It’s a very under-represented group and everyone should be able to be understood.

I personally have a weakness for the male gender, but still… This is über awesome!”

Thank you for being so accepting. :)



Keep heart. :)

“Aww, I’m sure you will find someone. I definitely identify with the sex bit, and it makes me feel like I will never find a man who will want me because of that, but you can’t lose hope. You sound like you are asexual, like me. If you happen to read the notes under your secret, and see this: Check out AVEN.” –elliebuzz

Aw! *hug* Let’s you and me be friends, okay? I hope everyone who’s afraid they won’t find someone ends up doing just that.



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!

“Asexuality as a Human Sexual Orientation” by Jessica Engelman

*FABULOUS ALERT*

“Why this sudden emergence of asexuality? During the Victorian era, marriage was generally expected and strongly encouraged, but with the belief that abstinence would be upheld in the relationship except with the explicit purpose of procreation. These ideals continued at least in part into the 20th century until they were abruptly disrupted by the sexual revolutions of the 60s and 70s. This period of presumed purity worked fairly well for asexuals, especially for those seeking a romantic partner, since even women were (sometimes) socially permitted to refuse their husband’s requests for sex. However, any sexual activities or preferences deemed “unnatural” were stiffly condemned (in England homosexuality was punishable by hanging, imprisonment, or as in Oscar Wilde’s case years of hard labor), so any individuals fitting the definition of asexual would not try to bring attention to their “problem.” In the time between the introduction of liberal views on sex in the 60s to modern day the world seems obsessed with sex. To go one day in America without running into sex would require sealing oneself in a room containing only the Winnie the Pooh book series, and that is under the assumption that the individual would not think of sex spontaneously. When nearly every television show, movie, magazine, newspaper, novel, most songs, and even academic texts contain mention of sex, dating, or some other form of sexual attraction, asexuals feel extremely isolated from the rest of humanity. Only recently have asexuals (in addition to people with sexual “abnormalities,” “fetishes” etc.) been able to find others like them and form communities over the Internet—there are many older individuals on asexuality.org who married and/or had sex out of social obligation and just assumed there was something wrong with them when they didn’t enjoy it.”

You may now continue to the article in question.



Day 1: Your sexual orientation or gender identity. Be creative in your definition.

I would say I’m a transromantic, driveless, repulsed-but-tolerant semi-androgynous asexual. I’m self-sufficient, independent, semi-Romantic and I crush ALL THE TIME on fictional characters and the occasional celeb..actual people, not so much. I’m the girl who didn’t get “That’s what she said!” jokes until she Googled it one day when she was twenty-one and, when asked by a coworker if she was “freaky,” asked him to be more specific.
