Wanting to say that someone looks good but not wanting anyone to assume that you’re attracted to them when you’re not
Finally I will be able to understand straight people
"I know reading Merida and Elsa as lesbians is very popular in the fandom these days, but I read them as asexual. I wish that could also be a celebrated interpretation, as asexuality desperately needs representation as well"
In spite of society assuming, believing, demanding that because I don’t have a romantic partner, I cannot be happy with my life, I am.
I receive constant messages everyday, telling me that I’m lonely, sad and incomplete without a boyfriend or girlfriend. But I’m not.
I am single, I expect to remain that way, and I will probably die a virgin. And I’m okay with that. I like myself the way I am. I am whole.
In a culture of amatonormativity and compulsory sexuality, to be happy with yourself without being attached to someone else is radicalism.
petitions for asexuals to be allowed to say “i totally aced that” whenever they misread a potentially sexualised situation
and then to just majestically sweep out of the room in a billowing cloud of purple smoke but that is optional
I’d really appreciate it if non-asexual-spectrum, non-aromantic-spectrum people stopped grouping hetero-romantic and aromantic asexuals together.
Being aromantic isn’t like being hetero-romantic. It’s not like being straight but inactive, or neutral and thus “straight by default” (hello heteronormativity). It’s more like…imagine everybody getting an instruction manual for romantic love when they’re born, and that’s how they know how to feel crushes, fall in love, etc. But when you open your manual, it just has “nope” and “?????” all over the pages. Or it turns out to be a manual for a potato-powered submarine, or something. Whatever it is, it sure isn’t the book other people are using.
That’s not “straight.” It’s not even a line.
(But honestly I’d rather have a submarine than a love interest anyway.)

"If white people are so privileged why is there a Black Entertainment Network and no White Entertainment Network?"
"Men don’t have privilege, there are women’s only gyms!"
"Why isn’t there a campus centre for straight/cis people!?"
SAME REASONS WHY IN MARIO KART YOU DON’T GET BLUE SHELLS OR LIGHTNING BOLTS WHEN YOU’RE ALREADY IN FIRST PLACE, ASSBAG.
Oh my god, this is the best fucking analogy I have ever seen in my entire life.
"So, in terms of sexuality, you’re like Switzerland?"
How to have an overlooked sexuality
Step 1: Finally find a sexual/romantic orientation that fits so well and answers all your doubts and insecurities and finally makes you feel like you’re not alone
Step 2: Find out that most people think you, and everyone else with the same identity, are pretentious for “making up” said sexuality to “appear admirable”
Step 3: Feel doubts and insecurities begin to resurface
Step 4: Remember you’re a bad ass motherfucker who doesn’t need anyone’s approval
there should be asexual parties. we start it off with the dry teeshirt contest where whoevers shirt is softest wins, spin the bottle, who ever it lands on shares a peice of cake with the spinner, then seven minutes in heaven is where you take a 7 minute power nap and people head to the bedrooms to hardcore cuddle.
When I was in the 3rd grade, I thought I was straight, because I live in a society where heterosexuality is assumed, outward characteristics are used as orientation indicators, and being queer is seen as a negative thing.
