Q

monumentofallyoursins asked:

What is causing the rising epidemic on the west coast known as Sea Star wasting and where is California's water supply

A

From what I could find…

Sea star wasting

"The disease is little understood and no identifiable cause for these events has been found, although it seems to be associated with raised water temperatures." (source)

So my very unqualified guess would be that like so much else that is going wrong, it can partially be blamed on global warming. 

California’s water supply

It’s a very complex system with many sources, and it depends on where in California you live. More information can be found here.

When I say ‘ask me anything’, I do literally mean anything. I will answer most questions (aside from obvious things like my address or other personal information up that lane), and kudos to you if you manage to find a question I will not want to answer!

An analogy for asexuality that I just came up with for someone who told me I was “missing out” on sex:

I guess it’s sort of like…if you don’t like the idea of eating raw fish…and everyone’s saying sushi is so good, you should try it, you’re missing out…but you know you don’t want to eat raw fish. So you live your life happily without sushi.

How can you tell you’re asexual?

Are you sexually attracted to other people? Do you feel the need to make sex a part of your life? Do you have a desire to introduce sexual activities into your relationships? If you answered no to one or more of these questions, you may very well be asexual. No expert can “diagnose” you; only you can answer this for yourself.

How to tell

  • Do you find other people sexy—in a way that makes you feel sexual desire or arousal, or a way that makes you think sex or sexual touching with that person would be satisfying (regardless of whether you’d actually do it)? If you don’t feel this with anyone, you may be asexual.
  • Do you develop sexual attraction every once in a while, but don’t find its pursuit or satisfaction intrinsically rewarding? Some people would call that asexual.
  • Do you think having sex (or the idea of having sex) is okay, but not very interesting or important? Could you take it or leave it, and find leaving it more convenient or preferable? Some people would call that asexual.
  • Do you feel sexual attraction sometimes, but only rarely? You may be graysexual,* and you’ll have a lot in common with asexual people if you are.
  • Do you sometimes develop sexual attraction when you’ve already developed other important connections with someone, but never feel sexually attracted to strangers, celebrities, or mere acquaintances? You may be demisexual,* and you’ll also have a lot in common with asexual people if you are.

* Gray and demi identities are considered to be “on the asexual spectrum”— there are lots of in-betweens!

And as always; Remember that no one else can know or decide what your sexual orientation is. If you find a label that fits you, and that you feel comfortable with, go for it. If you don’t like the label, even if you might identify with some of it, don’t use it! It’s up to you!

Coming out as asexual is a bit like this:

  • Other person: So, what do you want to be when you grow up?
  • Me: A writer.
  • Them: Hahahaha, that's hilarious.
  • Me: ????
  • Them: It's a good joke, what you just said. *wipes tear of mirth* Aha. Writer. Ha, yeah.
  • Me: But... I do want to be a writer.
  • Them: Don't be silly, you want to be a lawyer.
  • Me: No, I don't.
  • Them: Yes, you do. Everyone wants to be a lawyer.
  • Me: Clearly not, since I don't.
  • Them: But how do you know if you haven't tried being a lawyer?
  • Me: I think most lawyers became lawyers because they were interested in it. I am not interested. I'm not going to sink tons of money and years of my life into doing something I don't want to do.
  • Them: You'll want to when you get older. You just aren't mature enough to understand yet.
  • Me: Uh, yeah, I think I'm old enough to know by now.
  • Them: Well, maybe you just haven't found the right law school yet.
  • Me: No, you don't understand, I'm not interested in law school at all, it's not a matter of finding the right-
  • Them: You never know. A woman's hormones change over her lifetime.
  • Me: ????????????
  • Me: What does that have to do with anything?
  • Them: You never know.
  • Me: Stop saying that! I don't want to be a lawyer, I want to write.
  • Them: That's so unnatural. Law is a basic human need. I feel so sorry for you. Writers have terrible pay, you know. Being a lawyer is so much better. You'll change you're mind. You'll be broke and miserable if you don't, you poor, pitiful being.
  • Me: ............
  • Them: So, do you masturbate?
