How do I get the chocolate bar one?

My sis used to teach English in Japan and one time a guy came in wearing a shirt that just said “TESTOSTERONE”

She asked him if he knew what it meant and he insisted that he did.

Also happens in manga.

"You’re asexual? Aw, what a waste."

Gee, sorry, I didn’t realize that my body was a commodity that existed to be used and taken by other people.

Have complained about exactly this in a slightly more long-winded way.

I hate it when condescending, dismissive people target repulsed asexual people who are being pressured to have sex in relationships against their will.

"Just have sex," they say with an eyeroll. "What’s the big deal? Just do it. For your relationship. You’re so selfish."

So I always like responding to that with "Just give up sex. What’s the big deal? Just do it. For your relationship. You’re so selfish." You know, and then watch their heads explode.

Because it seems so unreasonable, suddenly, that one person should sacrifice something so important to them in order to make things work. At least, as long as that one person sacrificing is them.

(Um, and yeah, for the record, NO I am not advocating someone being pressured into giving up sex in their relationship. I’m saying we should destroy the narrative that frames repulsed asexual people as selfish and unreasonable, but makes it okay for sex-desiring partners to use the considerable power of the status quo to frame sex as a right.)

We do need to make very clear though that being “involuntarily celibate” in a relationship is absolutely NOT comparable to having sex you don’t want (i.e. sexual coercion and abuse), because having one’s bodily autonomy disrespected and violated is always, always going to be worse than not getting laid. Equating the two in any way is what allows people to sexually abuse their partners with impunity and then claim that it was in pursuit of “compromise.”

Like, what does “pressuring people into giving up sex” even look like? How the hell would repulsed asexuals even have the power to do that? We’re not forcing people to date us, for God’s sake.

YES, absolutely. We’re not denying that it can SUCK to not have something very important to you in a relationship, to feel that the person you desire doesn’t desire you back, to go without something you feel is a physical and emotional need. But that doesn’t mean someone else is OBLIGATED to give it to you or that that person is ABUSING you by not having sex with you. I have heard that a bunch of times though—that asexual people who are sex-repulsed (or, really, anyone who won’t have sex in a relationship) is behaving abusively by denying someone sex. It’s funny how being in a relationship sometimes changes people’s perception that sex is owed; they can claim to be against rape and coercion by strangers or acquaintances, but once you’re married or dating, there are a ton of people who feel sex is part of the contract, even if you’ve said otherwise. Some states in the US still have consummation laws!

Anonymous asked: Here's a question that has nothing to do with asexuality for once. What is your opinion on the TV show "My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic", if you've seen it? Also, what is your reaction to its fanbase, a.k.a. the "bronies"?

Seen it twice and both times I just don’t “get” why so many people like it. I don’t see anything particularly compelling about it, but not everything ends up appealing to me.

As for bronies, I have little to no experience with them personally, so all I know is that an unfortunate vocal minority have been responsible for some pretty horrible things (like creating and defending molestation humor, rape jokes, and porn based on the show, and reacted loudly and negatively to criticism of this, as well as harassing/upsetting people in the intended demographic). I have no problem with fans of the show in general, but as with any group of people who insist on the “right” to create virulently anti-female sentiment and throw it at women and little girls, I condemn the actions of its population of asshats. I don’t feel personally informed enough on this issue to comment further.

Anonymous asked: Sorry if you've been asked this before, but... At what point in your life did you realize you were asexual?

About age fifteen. At least, I suspected that I was not similar to others in my attraction patterns. I actually expected to realize I was a “late bloomer” later in my life, but it did not happen.

Video 12 Apr 59 notes

"Asexual Relationships" talk at the University of Virginia!

This is an hour-long presentation, presented as part of UVa’s Pride Week, in which I discuss asexual relationships, talk about why asexual/asexual relationships are uncommon, discuss some suggestions for non-asexual people who want to have relationships with asexual people, and give some advice for asexual people who want to have relationships (either with asexual people or non-asexual people). At the end I also touch on non-romantic relationships as well.

I answered questions at the end, and after the video was over a couple of asexual people from the audience connected with me as well. Hooray!

I’m sorry, this does not yet have captions. It will take me a while to get around to writing them!
