I also hate the ones who write about asexual people but then make them seem like there’s something wrong with them just because they don’t enjoy it or can live without it. Like, really? You just had to go there, didn’t you?
Yes! This also pisses me off. Like if you as a writer cannot actually fathom how a person can be asexual THEN DON’T WRITE ABOUT IT.
I’m doing just fine without sex thank you and the only “confusion” I’ve ever felt was before I knew about asexuality and basically my confusion boiled down to: Why is everyone freaking out so much about having sex.
Also here’s something that pisses me off. It seems like most times I see people write asexual characters (almost always people who are not ace) there’s the inevitable “and now we’ve reached the point where they eventually have sex with someone because love”
No. Fuck you. Love does not equal sex. Sure some aces may have sex and are ok with that (and that’s totally fine) but also SOME OF THEM WON’T. Sex is NOT inevitable. Sex is not the be all end all. Sex is not the sign of a relationship reaching its (excuse the pun) climax. Some aces will never want sex. Some aces will never have sex. AND THAT’S FINE. Write more about that. These relationships should not be lesser just because sex is not involved. And yeah some aces will have sex to have children but also adoption adoption is perfectly viable too you fuckers consider that as well.
What I want you to understand is yes, some aces do have sex. Some aces are ok with having sex with people. And that’s alright! They’re not any less asexual. That’s up to them. (AND DO NOT IGNORE/DOWNPLAY WHAT THAT MEANS FOR THEM TO DO THAT. )
But also some asexuals will NOT. Some asexuals DO NOT WANT TO no matter how much they love a person. Some asexuals are not willing to and if you try and worm them into some sick sort of “convincing” situation that is fucking disgusting do you understand that? And if you can’t understand that then maybe you shouldn’t fucking write about asexual characters then.
I am seeing way too much ignorance / total dismissal of asexuality on this site tonight and frankly it’s disgusting and very upsetting. Maybe later I’ll make some comments on it but right now I’m going to give this time to get the hell off my dash and go distract myself with writing.
Fuck people who dismiss an entire group of people. Fuck people who reduce it to a ‘naive mindset’ that can be ‘unlocked’ or ‘cured’ My thoughts and experiences should not be fucking dismissed just because you don’t “understand” them. FUCK YOU.
I’m already in love with those two dumbasses.

IDK just some draft I wrote up the other day. Wanted something kinda prophetic like the beginning of a bigger story
You’re not going to live past 40
Black jacket killer
Pack lasers on your belt
and bullets in your pockets
They ask you where you’ve been
They ask you what you’ve seen
You get bloody knuckles
Don’t they know that there’s a war?
You’re not going to live past 30
Spit blood into puddles
Backtrack twice; turn a corner, jump a fence
They’re bombing the moon today
Cloudy skies and screams
Mask the sounds with synthetic storms
Fireworks to celebrate
To thank the gods for war
You’re not going to live past 26
Drowned under neon
Fingers stretched toward the stars
They flooded the district while you were sleeping
One girl survived and they’ve named her king
She’s adopted into power—one day she’ll speak of fear
She hears music out of speakers
Long live the gods of war
Time to write for real. I owe someone a commission.

Until this battle station is fully operational, we are vulnerable. The rebel alliance is too well-equipped; they’re more dangerous than you realize.
