The film is currently in it's final stages and is seeking final funds through kickstarter. We are contacting you because of your affiliation in the LGBTQ community. Unfortunately I cannot post links in an ask, so please take the time to go to kickstarter and search “Drunktown’s Finest”. There is also an article on it featured in the Huffington Post blog online

Kickstarter, Youtube vid, Facebook

(And I know a lot of people hate Huffington but here is the article anyway: x)

Good luck with the project.

punkkimono said: Hi. I just did the 30 day asexuality challenge and there was a weird question about pie vs cake. I googled it and it said there was a joke that cake is better than sex or something idk, and what's up with the pie?? Please could you explain it to me?

The cake did originate from the joke “cake is better than sex”, meaning exactly that, basically saying most asexuals would rather have a piece of cake than have sex (not necessarily true, but it’s a simplification for humor, I guess). The pie came from some people not liking cake and making a variation on the joke, then spawning a sort of lighthearted competition between those who like one or the other. Just a sort of inside joke someone came up with and it sort of stuck.

#asks will probably be slower going than other reblogs for a while so apologies #this blog is p much operating on queue atm while i get the swing of things again - griff 

"Forcing people to be celibate who aren’t naturally inclined to be so is damaging and unhealthy - but insisting that everyone has to have sex to be psychologically healthy is also damaging to those of us who are far happier without it."

Okay yes you got me.

I did indeed start identifying as asexual because I’m on Tumblr.

And you know what.

If I wasn’t on Tumblr, if this website hadn’t taught me that wonderful little word, I would still be identifying as what I did before Tumblr.

Would you like me to tell you what that word was?

Broken.

#identity #community 

Just a note, I mentioned this in a tag on an ask earlier but in case some didn’t see it, this blog will be operating on a queue for a bit. I’ll still be popping on and adjusting and checking up (daily, if possible), but seeing something recently posted doesn’t mean I’m actually on at that moment. Just so you know you’re not being ignored intentionally. The current rate is 2 posts a day. c: Sorry for the inconvenience. Health issues, and I’m hoping to prevent burnout. c: Asks are queued, too (unless I see they’d be better to be posted immediately, or something).

#im also doing that because last time whenever i posted something id instantly get asks #because people were like 'oh shes on ill get an answer right away' and that was a source of a lot of stress #so im doing this defensively too haha #just the pressure of answering super quick and people actively waiting like that was a bit too much 

brief note about demisexuality

dearnonacepeople:

It may be true that most people prefer to know a person before choosing to have sex with them, but that isn’t what demisexuality means. Having a preference of knowing a person prior to sex implies that there is sexual attraction before knowing the person. Demisexuality is when there never is sexual attraction prior to having a very close interpersonal relationship with the person. Sexual attraction isn’t guaranteed to happen in close interpersonal relationships, either, so it’s not that uncommon for a demisexual person to have a partner to whom they’re not sexually attracted at all.

And when a demisexual person does experience sexual attraction, it shouldn’t be assumed that they think about the experience in the same way that non-asexual-spectrum people do.

Giant List of Asexuality and Aromantic Blogs

house-of-ace:

Since Asexual Awareness Week is coming up, I figured I’d make a rebloggable version of this blog’s links page for those who want to find new blogs to suggest to people!

Keep in mind that this is by no means a complete list; I’m sure I’ve forgotten some awesome blogs, so send me an ask if you want me to add anything! (or change anything, if you run one of these blogs and I’ve messed the description up.)

*note: assume that ‘asexual’ indicates ace-spectrum and same for aromantic and aromantic-spectrum unless indicated otherwise. and don’t come crying to me about how spectrums don’t exist, because there is a 100% chance i will ignore you.

*note #2: the above-mentioned links page will always have the most up-to-date version of the list, because any changes I make to this do not always show up on posts reblogged from a blog other than this.
