Everybody's doing it, so why the hell should I?

One gal's journey into discovering her sexuality

(Haters need not apply.)

Hey everyone!

Just an average gal here. Nothing special.
This will basically be a blog for me to feel out things I'm not comfortable putting on my main.

For the brave of heart: Strap yourselves in. It's gonna be a bumpy ride.

things that are sex shaming -

  • "she’s a sl-t for having all that sex"
  • "girls shouldn’t wear tank tops to school because it is distracting"
  • "that skin tight dress means she’s asking for it"
things that are not sex shaming -
  • "I would prefer to not see a stranger’s butt"
  • "I do not want to hear explicit details about your sex life"
there’s a difference between sex shaming and wanting sexual security

It’s kinda sad we have explain these things, but here we are

Ace problems: not realizing someone is flirting with you… ever

mixtercasual:

I wonder how many more people would identify as asexual and aromantic if not every single children’s story was solved by the power of love.

"If you’re not attracted to this celebrity, you’re probably lying!"

"If you don’t want to date this man, I don’t know what’s wrong with you!"

I’m not lying, I’m asexual. Thanks for the pictures. They are pretty. I also found these mountains.

Very pretty.

i do kind of wonder about that one. like. why? i mean we’re obviously all mind-blowingly attractive and devastatingly intelligent, but what other reasons

I’ve seen a couple posts of common searches for different sexualities and I wondered what I would get for ace. I am okay with these.

I was thinking today about all those posts that say things like “before I knew about asexuality I thought I was broken” and
Before I knew the term I still knew kind of what I was except it didn’t have a name so I would make weird metaphors like:
You know how you can “bat for the other team” or “swing the other way”… “I’m not playing” or “I prefer the monkey bars”
I was like twelve and I feel like those still accurately describe what I now use the term asexuality for

expiration-date:

shout-out to the incredibly physically attractive aromantic asexual people that get bitched for being single because they’re “too full of themselves to date anyone”

shout-out to the aromantic asexual people who aren’t incredibly physically attractive that get made fun of for being single due to “being unattractive”

you people are so fucking amazing, okay?

you’re wonderful as hell, and i’m so fucking proud of you guys for making it this far while being pressured to be in romantic relationships

you’re all so strong

Just because I’m asexual doesn’t mean I can’t find people attractive. I mean, someone’s milkshake may bring me to the yard but that doesn’t stop me being lactose intolerant.

Me, finally discovering the best way to explain my sexuality to my friends
