UK magazine looking for young Asexual Woman willing to be photographed

nethdugan:

So I originally spotted this on AVEN here so they’ve been vetted to make sure they’re not voyeurs or something. She’s from Grazia.

Thing is, several people (including me) have responded that we’re happy to talk to her we just don’t want our picture taken. Thus I thought to put the call out to tumblr - asexuals exist outside of AVEN after all. 

So if you’re an asexual women, willing to have your picture taken and live in the UK then it’d be fantastic if you could contact her. Contact details in the AVEN post.

So, spread around, this’ll be good for visibility.

Real women do not have curves. Real women do not look like just one thing.

Real women have curves, and not. They are tall, and not. They are brown-skinned, and olive-skinned, and not. They have small breasts, and big ones, and no breasts whatsoever.

Real women have big hands and small hands and long elegant fingers and short stubby fingers and manicures and broken nails with dirt under them.

Real women have armpit hair and leg hair and pubic hair and facial hair and chest hair and sexy moustaches and full, luxuriant beards. Real women have none of these things, spontaneously or as the result of intentional change. Real women are bald as eggs, by chance and by choice and by chemo. Real women have hair so long they can sit on it. Real women wear wigs and weaves and extensions and kufi and do-rags and hairnets and hijab and headscarves and hats and yarmulkes and textured rubber swim caps with the plastic flowers on the sides.

Real women wear high heels and skirts. Or not.

Real women are feminine and smell good and they are masculine and smell good and they are androgynous and smell good, except when they don’t smell so good, but that can be changed if desired because real women change stuff when they want to.

Real women have ovaries. Unless they don’t, and sometimes they don’t because they were born that way and sometimes they don’t because they had to have their ovaries removed. Real women have uteruses, unless they don’t, see above. Real women have vaginas and clitorises and XX sex chromosomes and high estrogen levels, they ovulate and menstruate and can get pregnant and have babies. Except sometimes not, for a rather spectacular array of reasons both spontaneous and induced.

Real women are fat. And thin. And both, and neither, and otherwise. Doesn’t make them any less real.

There is a phrase I wish I could engrave upon the hearts of every single person, everywhere in the world, and it is this sentence which comes from the genius lips of the grand and eloquent Mr. Glenn Marla:

There is no wrong way to have a body.

real women are those who identify as women.

This is very much my thought on it.

#women #gender identity 

I’m starting to wonder if I’m actually gay, I don’t like women yet I can’t stand men enough so I won’t be in a relationship with one and I have no sexual interests but Josh Hutcherson….thats besides the point, maybe I’m borderline asexual?

Many asexual people still feel romantic feelings towards other people, the only thing an asexual doesn’t feel is sexual attraction. In saying that, many asexuals are in relationships and some still have sex :)

Everyone is different.

6 things everyone knows about women (that aren’t true!)

Found an interesting article here that I thought was worth sharing.

I know it’s nothing to do with asexuality, however I still feel this is worth posting and reading. Very interesting! :)
