What’s in store for me in the direction i don’t take?
“… the moments when everything is open, when all options are present, and all is undecided – mere destinies unfolding. Our choices shift into one plane of existence, the extension of every path still available, until we pick the red tie instead of the blue; harbor anger instead of compassion; attempt to fix it or break it; and all our possibilities collapse into the singular of what is, rippling outward from the moment of decision to affect our lives in ways unknown… The noise at the back of our mind wondering anxiously, What’s in store for me in the direction I don’t take?”
If you are offended or angry because I say I consider science much like a religion, then you need to consider why “religion” is an insult.
I always end up enjoying old movies with white guys pretending to be chinese people because literally their stereotypes are so random and off I forget they’re pretending to be chinese and I just enjoy the chronicles of an weird old white guy who’s starting to lose it
and then I remember that people back then thought that they were asians and I’m just like damn. thats offensive as fuck.
Just saw Breakfast At Tiffany’s. Same reaction.
Before I came to the identity of asexual, I identified with genophobia (fear of sex, sexual activities, etc.). However, I do not consider that part of my life as an asexual. After having my first boyfriend and several sexual experiences, I realized that sex, as you mentioned, was something a person could ease into. I became more comfortable with it as I went on. However, that did not result in any sexual attraction towards others or interest in sexual activities with others. I could understand the logic behind what I was doing, but I didn’t feel any sense of sexual attraction. If people don’t experience a sexual attraction towards others and their appearances/bodies, then it would make sense that a person could find the human appearance disgusting and acts fearful. Even as I got comfortable with my activities and body, it didn’t mean that I understood it the same way as allosexuals seemed to. And it’s frightening to wonder what you are missing or experiencing differently. I hope this helps. :)
Okay, honesty moment. I’m not trying to be offensive, please take note. But…. asexuality confuses me. So, for my curiosity but also because of general misunderstanding, I want to ask about specifics. Here, I’m asking the asexual community about some important concerns regarding the asexual label that have been bothering me.
I’m working on some blog posts and comic strips about the issue since it’s becoming a more vocal part of my life.
