Anonymous asked: hi there. about your special snowflake rant: THANK YOU so much! I can’t even number how many years I thought that I was just weird and broken, and going to have to live life as well as I could. I always feared what would happen if I ever got married (because I was raised to believe that marriage was what everyone was supposed to just do) and if I would just have to submit to whatever my future husband’s physical needs would be. Awareness is necessary. Awareness is awesome. We are normal! Thanks
Awareness really is the main goal, in my opinion. I’m very happy that you no longer have those fears either! And yes, we are normal! Thank you for sharing! :)
I hate how dismissive people can be of asexuality. I totally understand people being confused or generally uneducated about it, but if I explain it and say that I identify with it you should be accepting of that. It’s unfair to write it off as me being overdramatic or trying to be ‘different’ or some other bs. It took me years to even find a word that describes how I feel, now I finally have and people just blow it off.
Me: but I'm afraid love won't be enough.
Friend: well, maybe it's because I was brought up on Disney movies, but to me love is enough.
Me: yeah but, Disney doesn't involve sex.
Friend: well then you're that much closer to being a Disney princess and I'm really jealous.
Anonymous asked: Jumping in on the 'forever alone' topic: I think it's one of the many "joys" of living in a society that puts such stress on love, romance, and sex. If you don't have luck in relationships or just plain aren't interested, romance, couples, rom coms, Valentine's, and various other things are shoved in our faces, in a nearly mocking "you're-going-to-die-alone" kinda way. Non-aces and aces alike feel like they can't find love because they aren't perfect enough, while it's simply not true.
Yes, this!! Thank you for this message, Anon. You put that so well!
there’s 15 year olds on this website who already know they’re asexual that is incredible just incredible when I was 15 all I knew was that I was broken and that something was clearly wrong with me. say what you want about tumblr but I think we can agree that spreading knowledge about alternative sexualities is something done really well here and to the benefit of so many.
