"well why is it even important to mention aromantic and asexual people all the time not everyone gets mention-"

because our entire culture is so deeply steeped in sex and romance and there’s millions of people who want none of one or the other or both and they need to be recognized and mentioned instead of made to feel like they don’t fit and they’re broken

(via lafiaoverlord)

“We need both stories that blatantly feature asexuality and its discovery — like a subplot of the New Zealand soap opera “Shortland Street,” in which a biromantic asexual man found his label on the Internet and explored what it meant — as well as stories that feature asexuality incidentally, like a one-off mention of asexuality spoken by a minor character on the American drama “Huge,” in which a camp counselor casually identified as asexual while watching a movie and described her aromanticism. We need “issue books” as well as asexual best friend characters and incidentally asexual romantic partners and specific but normalized inclusion of asexuality in all venues where sexual diversity would normally be discussed.”

"Maybe you’re not [heterosexual/homosexual/some kind of allosexual], maybe you’re just [insert love interests name]-sexual"

NO, NO THERE IS AN ACTUAL LEGITIMATE NAME FOR THAT

THERE IS A NAME FOR ONLY BE SEXUALLY ATTRACTED TO THOSE YOU HAVE A DEEP EMOTIONAL BOND WITH

hey, I think im straight cause ive liked boys before but ive been watching some lesbian porn and getting off on it. does this mean im lesbian?

A

Being heterosexual(straight), homosexual, or bisexual, is just down to who you find yourself sexually attracted to.

It’s perfectly possible to be aroused by certain things, or people, who you are not actually sexually attracted to. A study has shown that men who watch porn regularly will feel arousal to some degree when they see a penis, regardless of their orientation. The reasoning behind why this is happening is mostly theories at this point.

My point is, finding lesbian porn arousing, does not make you a lesbian. If you are sexually attracted to boys, and only boys, you are in all likelihood straight. If you happen to also be attracted to some girls you might be bisexual or pansexual.

Hope that helps!

Reblog if you believe and know that asexuality is real.

This is more of a media representation question. I personally get really annoyed with The Big Bang Theory and how they treat Sheldon's asexuality. I feel like the majority of the time Sheldon being Ace is seen as a joke and constantly is being pressured in a way to have sex, both from friends and Amy. I was mainly wondering if you, and others, feel the same way. I just hate when I tell someone I'm Ace and one of the things they bring up is Sheldon and say, "Don't worry your Amy show up one day."

This is a very common public view of asexuality, and it’s unfortunate. I think it stems from the inability of most (not all) allosexuals and alloromantics to comprehend what a life without sexual and/or romantic desire is like. There’s so much emphasis placed on sex and romance in society and they’re such a big deal to allos in general that they automatically assume that we must be nearly robotic in nature to not want it. They equate asexuality and aromanticism to a near complete lack of emotion period until that “special someone” comes along and flips the switch. 

I’d really like to believe that this will change as asexuality gains exposure, but I feel like we might have a long way to go on that front. 

I’m also going to open this topic up to the rest of the community, so feel free to reblog/reply and give your viewpoint as well, readers.

What are your feelings on "SJWs" and do you feel like tumblr as a whole gets too extreme/overreacts on some subjects?

A

I think there are parts of tumblr that can take certain topics too far. Humans are not perfect, and we all make mistakes. Tumblr has just grown a cultures which will take some of those mistakes a little too far.

On the topic of SJW… I think they’re well meaning enough, but they can miss the point at times.
