File under: Things I did not expect in this month’s Cosmopolitan, but I am quite impressed by. Now if they could write a little more about it that would be great.
(Also if someone who was asexual could actually confirm this is an appropriate and nice response, because I’m assuming it is.)
reasons why asexuality & ace spectrum orientations need to be recognized and discussed in the mainstream media. i wonder how many people realized asexuality existed after reading this article? and looked into it and felt that relief of “i’m not alone!!! i’m not a freak!!!”
Color me impressed.
Yes, it is not only a nice response, but an honest, insightful and compassionate one. The writer has put their finger on what I think is probably the primary damage most asexuals grow up with: In a world where everyone seems obsessed with sex, where there seems to be absolutely nowhere to turn and no one to look to if you’re not, the almost inescapable conclusion (typically reinforced by the people around you if you seek advice from friends) is that you must be broken.
(And let me tell you, going through life with every movie, book, TV show, news article and poster ad—not to mention friends and family—telling you basically, “But you should want to bang this hot person right here!” starts feeling pretty rapey after a while.)
Stumbling across a small article in a random magazine that says, “Have you considered that maybe you’re not broken? There are other people like you. Look, there’s even a name for it” is…holy shit.
Apparently on the 1st April my Tumblr turned 3 years old.
Happy Tumblr birthday to me I guess.
Ah yes the end of a vacation and the beginning of a study period. Isn’t that always the way? Anyway, I am refreshed and ready for the rest of the year so bring it on Uni.
Oh yeah I forgot to say I’m walting around America right now.
That’s why I’ve been mostly MIA.
sorry, now you know.
Seems about right. Deciding that the “most powerful female characters in literature” should be 1) Jane Eyre a woman who runs away into the wilderness when she discovers the man she’s dating is a lying asshole and almost dies and 2) A supporting character, because God knows you couldn’t think up another women who was a main character to be put at second place. I’m not suggesting that Hermione is a bad character, or a bad role model but the fact that they chose a female in a supporting role (to a male main character no less) is very telling.

This helped me a lot.
"We’ve had sex before" is the one I heard most from my ex, however most of these can be applied to my previous relationship. I am so glad that this is here.
I’m really not sure how any of this is new to people. Just, you know, don’t be a scumbag? The fact that we even HAVE to educate individuals about things which should be common sense has severely (and this is entirely serious not a joke) damaged my faith in humanity
for anyone who thinks that south asians can’t have blue eyes
