So pumped for national coming out day tomorrow! So much fun stuff planned.
Not so excited for the midterm, but it’s for an LGBT class so I suppose it’s oddly fitting.

Still Bisexual? Demisexual? Asexual? Just a good girlfriend? Help?!

happypotatomurderer:

I’m a 15 year old female in a very happy relationship with the most amazing guy on earth. I’ve been openly bisexual for almost two years now. I really didn’t (don’t) care about the gender of the person; if they’re a genuine person I’ll begin to like them and fall in love with them.

However, I don’t really have strong sexual feelings for the person. I will engage in sexual activities with the person I’m with if I really like them and think it is what they want. I am never the first to want sexual things.

I was with a group of friends at a football game and they were awing at a football player one of them have a crush on saying how sexy he was and stuff. They knew I didn’t like said guy, so they asked me who I thought was sexy… I couldn’t think of anyone besides my boyfriend. They asked if I had ever thought anyone was sexy and the only other person I could think of was me having a crush on my best female friend in middle school—-one of the few people I’ve ever been truely SEXUALLY attracted to.

I can tell when a person is “attractive” but I am not attracted to them. I only start to be attracted to someone after I’ve known them a while and start to get to know them well. I am just genuinely not attracted to people—-any person at all. Besides my boyfriend who is one of the closest people I have in my life. When I’m with him I become sexually turned on and he is the ONLY person that this happens with. I sometimes get wet before he’s erect >.<

Why am I not normal though? I’m not attracted to anyone besides the person I’m closest with? Am I just a good girlfriend or is it something more? I need help figuring this out before my brain explodes, so please, if anyone has similar feelings and reads this could you please help me?

Asexual Awareness Week 

neutrois:

Asexual Awareness Week 2011!

October 23-29

Asexual Awareness Week is an international campaign to promote awareness about asexuality. Some of the things you can expect are a series of guest blogs, an asexual community wide demographic survey, and screenings of documentary (A)sexual.

There will be screenings of (A)sexual throughout the month. I am probably attending the one in Berkeley, CA on Oct 29. (Or check out the Facebook page for more info).

So today I came out as Asexual to my LGBTQ+ group.

They were really accepting of it, pretty much everyone in the room had heard of asexuality in one way or another and at no point did anybody try to invalidate it. The leader of the group said she was willing to print out some Ace flags to stick on the walls and stuff.

It was seriously amazing, and for the people who hadn’t heard of it were really interested in knowing more. It’s times like this that I honestly think our community will be okay :3

Tumblr Aces: I require your assistance! This is the preliminary version version of the posters that I will be distributing for Asexual Awareness Week, but I think they could use some work - especially the portion about greys/demis
So, let me know what you think! What’s good/bad? What is too detailed? What isn’t detailed enough? Any problematic statements? Any major points that I’m missing?
Keep in mind that space is limited so it will be obviously lacking; however I’d like to at least cover some of the more important points.
Once this is finalized in the next day or two, I may post a more generic version if people would like to add their own information and use it elsewhere.

      Asexuality is a sexual orientation much like homosexuality, bisexuality, heterosexuality, or pansexuality. Asexuals do not experience sexual attraction towards any gender. Some asexuals may still have a sex drive, or libido, but it is not directed towards anyone or anything.
      It is important to note that asexuality is NOT the same as celibacy. Unlike celibacy, which is a conscious decision not to act on sexual attraction, asexuality is not a choice. Asexuality is defined by identity, not behaviour. Some asexuals may be celibate, while others may not.
       Although asexuals do not experience sexual attraction, some may still experience other forms of attractions, such as romantic attraction, and identify as homoromantic, panromantic, heteroromantic, etc; those who do not experience romantic attraction may identify as aromantic.
      There are also some people who idenitfy as on the asexual spectrum without being fully asexual, such as grey-asexuals (who experience only very rare or weak attraction) and demisexuals (who experience attraction only after a strong emotional bond is in place).
Want to know more? Here are some good places to start:
 • asexuality.org -  The Asexual Visibility and Education Network. 
 • en.wikipedia.org/Asexuality - Asexuality on Wikipedia
 • asexualexplorations.net - a collection of the extant scientific 
     research on asexuality

  • Stories about being happy with yours or someone else’s sexuality
  • Abundance or lack of support within the gay community
  • Stories regarding your orientation, or sexuality in general
  • Questioning stories
  • Transsexual/transgender stories
  • Stories about being asexual
  • Challenges you have overcome
  • Challenges you are still dealing with
  • Things that you don’t understand about sexuality
  • Questions

Ace Awareness week

thechronicwanderer:

I’m doing a presentation about asexuality for Spectrum, my school’s LGBTQ group. I have a bullet-point list of things that I am going to talk about. If anyone has any suggestions on other topics I should include, or how to make it more interesting than me just rambling, that would be great.

  • Basic definition of asexuality
  • what it means to me to be asexual
  • asexuality doesn’t equal celibacy
  • Romantic attraction/ace spectrum
  • issues that the ace and LGBTQ community both fight for (right to marry/adopt/etc.)
  • issues that the ace and LGBTQ community both fight against (bullying, corrective rape, etc.)

I’ve considered adding a bit about what different religions say about asexuality. ANY feedback is super appreciated.
