ask-an-asexual:

While the text of this sticker is geared towards a more humorous direction, the black ring on a right middle finger is a very real symbol. Along with the flag, and the triangle, this is one of the most important symbols in regards to asexuality. 

The black ring can be used both to send out a signal to other asexuals (as well as others in the know), and to strongly identify yourself with your sexual orientation.

Despite what this image might make you believe, you will not turn invisible when taking the ring off.

May have posted this before. Don’t care, it’s funny.

My take on the now classic “Arrow and Ace” post by simonjadis. It’s not superheroes, but it does feature agents from a vague yet menacing government agency, some harassment and a break in.

Feel free to share, comment and critique! I appreciate all of those things.

Today in “Gecko Tries to Figure Out Attraction” I have some questions I humbly beg your assistance with:

Is there any difference between the feelings you have towards a really attractive person and those towards beautiful art or a really nice building?

Do people look at someone and immediately feel a desire to have sex with them or kiss them?

Do people ever want to be intimate with someone they feel NO physical attraction to?

Coming out as asexual is a bit like this:

  • Other person:

    So, what do you want to be when you grow up?

  • Me:

    A writer.

  • Them:

    Hahahaha, that's hilarious.

  • Me:

    ????

  • Them:

    It's a good joke, what you just said. *wipes tear of mirth* Aha. Writer. Ha, yeah.

  • Me:

    But... I do want to be a writer.

  • Them:

    Don't be silly, you want to be a lawyer.

  • Me:

    No, I don't.

  • Them:

    Yes, you do. Everyone wants to be a lawyer.

  • Me:

    Clearly not, since I don't.

  • Them:

    But how do you know if you haven't tried being a lawyer?

  • Me:

    I think most lawyers became lawyers because they were interested in it. I am not interested. I'm not going to sink tons of money and years of my life into doing something I don't want to do.

  • Them:

    You'll want to when you get older. You just aren't mature enough to understand yet.

  • Me:

    Uh, yeah, I think I'm old enough to know by now.

  • Them:

    Well, maybe you just haven't found the right law school yet.

  • Me:

    No, you don't understand, I'm not interested in law school at all, it's not a matter of finding the right-

  • Them:

    You never know. A woman's hormones change over her lifetime.

  • Me:

    ????????????

  • Me:

    What does that have to do with anything?

  • Them:

    You never know.

  • Me:

    Stop saying that! I don't want to be a lawyer, I want to write.

  • Them:

    That's so unnatural. Law is a basic human need. I feel so sorry for you. Writers have terrible pay, you know. Being a lawyer is so much better. You'll change you're mind. You'll be broke and miserable if you don't, you poor, pitiful being.

  • Me:

    ............

  • Them:

    So, do you masturbate?

anasayomi:

person: so you’re asexual right?

me: yeah.

person: but how can you call yourself asexual if you haven’t had sex?

             but didn’t you said you have a crush??

             does this mean you can’t have sex???

             aren’t you just confused???? you’re still young.sig

             isn’t asexuality the same as celibacy????? so it’s a choice.

             it’s just a phase, you’ll grow out of it.
