~~Transparent reivindication.~~
Because I’m sick of feeling like a weird animal in a ‘Monsters Show’, because this shouldn’t be so needed in a (supposed-to-be)  modern society. Because asexuality is not a mental disorder and we’re not ill. I’m bloody sick of hearing people talking shit! I respect people who have sex, they should respect me!

Took down the guestbook since it wasn’t being used.

I’m assuming a huge amount of the asexual community on tumblr still thinks I’m trash.

I’m also going to tag posts where I’m miserable as “negativity” so you can blacklist the tag and don’t have to listen.

Yeah, the bullying has taken it’s toll. Plus all the other crap I have to deal with offline.

  • Asexuality is not a myth
  • Asexuals are not “prude”
  • Asexuality is not a choice or a form of abstinence
  • Asexuals are not frigid or unhappy
  • Asexuals do not live an unfulfilled life just because they aren’t interested in sex
  • Asexuals’ lives are not incomplete without sex
  • Asexuals are not boring
  • Asexuals in relationships with sexuals are not selfish for not wanting to have sex with their partner
  • Asexual relationships are just as real as any other relationship and are no less legitimate just because they don’t include sex
  • Don’t ever make an asexual feel like they’re less of a person than you just because they don’t want sex
  • Asexuals are human beings just like you and you need to fucking treat them that way

When a song is catchy as fuck, but it’s so sexual. The struggle is real.

"There are no laws against it. What rights are they fighting for?"

redbeardace:

[Cross-posted from “The Comment Section" on Asexuality Archive]

Examples:

  • It is NOT part of the LGBT community. No one is denying any rights to people who choose not to have sex.
  • If being gay is about political rights, then they don’t fit in because they are not fighting for any kinds of rights because they are not being denied any thing.
  • What right is denied to an Asexual person? Just name one, please.

Why these comments are a problem:

It implies that “fighting for rights” is the only reason people ever identify as gay or transgender or what have you.  That’s a preposterous assertion.  It’s my understanding that people tend to identify as gay because they’re gay, not because they enjoy political organization.  Beyond that, the this claim implies that once those rights are granted, there will no longer be a need for the LGBT community.  “Cancel the parade, everyone!  Say goodbye to the Castro and the Village!  Board up the gay bars! Tear down those rainbow flags!  We’ve got our rights now, so it’s all unnecessary!”

Fighting for legal rights isn’t the only reason to form a community.  Being around other people who understand how you feel so you don’t have to constantly explain yourself is one of the primary reasons.  We also are drawn to find a community because so many of us felt alone, like we were the only person who felt this way.  The larger our community is, the more visible we are, and the more visible we are, the more likely someone else will be able to grow up knowing that they’re asexual, instead of feeling lost and broken for years until they stumble across the word.

Also, despite the claim, there actually are legal issues that concern asexuality.  Discrimination is one of them.  There are people who will discriminate against anyone who is not heterosexual.  While there are laws against discrimination based on sexual orientation in many places, in some cases, those laws are written in such a way that they do not include asexuality.  For instance, RCW 49.60.040 in the State of Washington (where I live) defines “sexual orientation” as “heterosexuality, homosexuality, bisexuality, and gender expression or identity.”  Asexuality is not included.  Under the letter of the law, asexuals could legally be fired for being asexual.  There’s a report of an asexual couple who could not adopt a child because they were asexual.  Asexuals with homoromantic leanings may run into the same prohibitions against marriage that homosexual people fight against.  And if asexuals do get married, there are sometimes “consummation laws” that require sexual intercourse for a marriage to be considered “valid”, and that may not be something an asexual person is willing to do.

How to respond:

  • Inform the person that the LGBT community is about more than just “fighting for rights”, or it would disappear after those rights were obtained.
  • Explain that “fighting for rights” is not the only reason people seek community, recognition, and acceptance.
  • Discuss legal issues that have or potentially could impact you as an asexual.

It does bother me slightly that our “asexual” tag is constantly bombarded with gay and lesbian material. It makes me feel like we are trying to tell people about us and take pride in ourselves, and they just jump right in front of us and go “look at us instead!!”. Come on… We support you, but can you give us our *own* space?
