instead of sex repulsed say sex apathetic, its offensive and kind of gross if you refer to people disinterested in something sexual as ‘sexually repulsed’

this is the only time ill post something like this

lmao no some people are actually repulsed by sex and it’s really shitty to say they’re just disinterested when they’re actively disgusted by it

can’t figure out if op is talking about applying (inaccurate) labels to people without their consent, or if they’re trying to kick the “sex repulsed is slut shaming” hornets nest again

because the former is gross and it’s making assumptions about someone without their input based on obnoxious and somewhat damaging stereotypes and in that case i agree with the post

but if we’re getting into this ‘repulsion is shaming’ shit again (remember when everyone was like “don’t say ‘repulsed’ say ‘aversive’!!!”? fuck that) then op needs to shut up

what if

asexual characters

who weren’t androids or aliens

whose asexuality wasn’t seen as something needing to be ‘fixed’

and who aren’t socipaths

Does godzilla count as a sociopath?

Things that the asexual community needs to police itself for:

  • Erasure of disabled, neuroatypical, abused, aromantic, religious, and sex-repulsed aces
  • Lack of intersectionality
  • Lumping allosexual LGBT+ people in with straight people as “sexual privilege”
  • Dismissing how compulsory sexuality and colonialism harm both ace and allo PoC, and that the bulk of the fight against compulsory sexuality has been spearheaded by black women
  • "You wouldn’t say that to a gay person!"
  • Amatonormativity
  • Attacking demisexual/gray-ace identities
  • Discussions revolving around a perspective of default whiteness
  • Lack of discussion of how white privilege plays into the ace community
  • Prioritizing how allosexual people see us vs. the needs of ace people
  • Probably a lot of other things

Things the asexual community does not need to police itself for:

  • Cake jokes
  • Having fun
  • Being happy

"but asexuality isn’t real," the straight white cis man exclaims. suddenly, to everyone’s horror, people begin to disappear globally. they simply cease to exist, vanishing without a trace, aside from the faint smell of pomegranate left in their wake.

idk I think it’s pretty evident that Ned isn’t particularly ace, he has fantasies/dreams about sleeping with Chuck so…

yeah, someone else pointed that out too (though i didn’t forget the “accidentally brought the bearskin rug to life” thing because who could ever forget that,) so yeah he is… kind of clearly not ace imo?

but i also stand by my point that i really think that looking at an inability to have sex as a platform to make this kind of argument is… not good. because a lack of sexual activity and his obliviousness to olive’s feelings are really the only things i can see that anyone could use to make a case for his asexuality, and in my opinion that just really only serves to reinforce this idea of asexuals as some kind of metatron-like bizarringtons who are physically incapable of having sex lest we should bring about the end of days because he literally can’t have sex with his girlfriend without killing her

A few weeks ago, an interesting conversation kicked up on Tumblr when several people started talking about how hard it is to find sex-repulsed perspectives in the asexual community. Because I am chronically late, I feel that now would be a great time to chime in on that.

Thing is, we’re right here. We’re just being really quiet about it.

In which I talk more about why we rarely hear from repulsed aces about repulsion/sex-aversion in asexual communities. Go check it out!
