…I don’t know what this is about… but it made me blush
So we’re on the trek back to Nanaimo, and I’ll be living in dorms this time. Which has been causing some anxiety. So while passed out in the hotel room last night, I had a level 4 nightmare (causes high anxiety, unaware that I’m dreaming, but when I wake up I know it wasn’t real) which involved them fucking me over for my dorm and I was being crammed into a room with 5 other people.
Woke up panicked and was able to CALM MYSELF DOWN! Four for you Max coco, you go Max coco! Usually I end up either panicking until I pass back out or get up and do something to distract myself. That wasn’t an option because the ‘rents were still asleep. But I was able to talk myself down, calm out, and go back to sleep, which is a fucking win.
Now, if I can do that with a level 9, then we’re really on our way to the races.
*whispers*… support all ace people.
All of them. Everyone of the goddamned spectrum. Most of us spent too long feeling very broken or confused to later get told we dont get to be part of the one community we feel we relate to.
Sex repulsed ace? You’re great. I feel.you. I know exactly what that’s like.
Sex positive ace? Man thats awesome. Whether it’s just from a like casual interest or curiosity in it as a fascinating topic or as an active participant because you like how it feels. If you arent attracted sexually to people you’re ace too and still welcome here.
Grey-a? I bet that was really confusing to figure out man, im so glad you’re here. Don’t worry I promise you’re awesome too, youre not a “fake” or anything like that.
Demi? You go, dude. Being attracted to your partner or someone you have that bond with doesnt make you less a part of our community. It doesnt meanmyou were “never really ace” or that now you’re totally allosexual. Demi is just as valid as other orientations.
Basically anyone that feels like they are part of the ace spectrum is awesome and you belong here, fuck what other people tell you.
Unless you’re a raging asshole and like a murderer or something. Then you arent awesome.
Listen to Mama Max for a moment
YOU ARE NOT BROKEN!
JUST BECAUSE YOU’RE ACE DOESN’T MEAN YOU CAN’T FEEL ROMANTIC LOVE!
JUST BECAUSE YOU’RE ARO DOESN’T MEAN YOU’RE ANY LESS HUMAN!
ROMANTIC LOVE IS NOT THE BE ALL END ALL
SEX IS NOT A NECCESITY FOR ROMANTIC LOVE
If you ever fucking need ANYTHING, you come to me. Understand? You are fucking incredible, I don’t care where you fall in the Ace/Aro spectrum. I support you.
I have the urge to find a Metal version of “Disco Stick” and I don’t know why.
If by “Disco Stick” you mean Lady Gaga’s “Love Game” then I’ve got it right here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XX6L0tIxQP0
Not exactly what I was hearing in my mind, but it’s actually a pretty good song.
I’ve had a couple of asks come in regarding the House quote I reblogged. And I wanted to publicly answer them without outing the people who asked.
Because you didn’t know. And that’s okay.
The comments were all very similar in thought, which was “House is an ass, of course he would say those things, the writers probably don’t hate Asexuals.”
I understand where you’re coming from, but now I want you to understand where I’M coming from. There was no indication in that the writers thought differently than House in regards to Asexuality. That can be VERY easy to show. Either House recants his statement, or a character with an opposing opinion (Ace Positive in this case) is given higher weight in the episode.
Because none of this happens, the feeling of the episode is that Asexuality is something that needs to be fixed. There are people watching this episode going “That’s how *I* feel! …I’m broken.” THAT’S what they’re taking away from that episode. And that mindset is VERY hard to shake.
So even if the writers didn’t mean to paint Asexuality as a bad thing, they did, and that is very damning for that episode, and has turned a lot of people off that show.
How damning is it to a child when they are told “Don’t be smart with me”?
What kind of message are they taking in?
