    Hi, I’m new

    Hi and welcome! 🍰🍰🍰 I’m an introvert too, and it was scary for me to post at first, but it’s getting easier. Everyone here is welcoming 😀

    Weird Stuff From Childhood

    The one decent thing my old man did was that he got my mother into building those Hubley die-cast metal model cars about 50 years ago when those kits were still produced. As a kid in the 1970s, some of us kids still built models back then (I eventually gravitated toward WW2 Japanese planes). Then home video game consoles became all the rage, and by middle school I was the only kid who still built models...

    Are We LGBT?

    Hi! I'm new on here, but I want to share that we are certainly 'queer' if that is the term you prefer! I didn't really like it for a while because I had only heard it used derogatorily by homophobic people. But now it is a term I like to use as an alternative or additionally to LGBTQIA+, because it is shorter. Certainly asexual and aromantic are more widely accepted by the queer and LGBTQIA+ community than ever before now, although of course it isn't perfect. There are times I feel uncomfortable or hurt that it is so little discussed even within the community. Nonetheless, as it isn't hetero or whatever society likes to call 'normal' then yes we are a part of the community. As asexuality and aromanticism become better known too, the A in LGBTQIA+ is increasingly recognized to represent us rather than 'ally', though some will still insist that is what it stands for, or should be, or they might say it is either. If it helps though, officially in my textbook on race, ethnicity, gender, and class, asexuality is recognized and mentioned as a sexual orientation of the community.

    Yeah 😅 Guys hardly ever notice me because I'm so quiet and the few that do talk to me get super touchy. I don't mind as long as it's a hug.

    I thought I was the only one who did that. My sister likes to open the blinds, but I like to keep them closed. I even put up curtains in some windows that didn't have curtains or blinds, so I could keep them closed.

    Are you a collector?

    Same! I probably have close to 90 and I’ve managed to fit them all in an obscure shelf close to the ground in my room so that my family doesn’t walk in and immediately see them all haha. Once I get my own apartment/house it would be nice to get a big shelf and I even fantasize about having some sort of hidden reading room to keep all of my manga/novels in 😂

    Dealing with Not Knowing + Help Me Figure It Out?

    I would have to disagree. I don't want to get into this eternal debate here, but in my opinion, there is more to being trans than dysphoria. For me, I found analyzing my euphoria much more helpful than analyzing my dysphoria, because it was like: Yeah, I don't like being female. But what do I like? So, OP, I would try that. If identifying as agender feels good, maybe that's what you are. Play around and see what makes you comfortable, and try not to worry too much about labels, because at the end of the day, they're not the most important thing in the world. This article might help with that.

    What does love feel like to you?

    I usually define it like: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Color_wheel_theory_of_love

    Am I actually Asexual?

    In fairness, you are 13. It's pretty common to not be interested in sex at your age. Of my three best mates one only started desiring sex after 17, the other two after 20. But yeah, we can't label you.

    What does love feel like to you?

    As an aromantic person, I've only ever really felt platonic love. I sort of define that love as a deep appreciation and connection with a certain person. It's like a force that makes you want to spend time with a person. I love people in the same sort of way I might love a pet. Someone who I enjoy the presence of and enjoy being with.

    Am I actually Asexual?

    identify with whatever works best for you! i started identifying as ace young, too. i talked to my friend about sexual attraction when we were 13. she said that although she wasn’t sure if she’d like to have sex just yet, she had imagined doing it with others and enjoyed the idea of having sex with specific people (i say specific to clarify it wasn’t an ambiguous/unidentified person in her mind, it was a person she knew). if you have never had the same thought process, it’s possible you could be ace. it’s also possible you just haven’t experienced sexual attraction yet, which is okay. either way, you can identify as ace right now and simply wait and see if your feelings change. they may change, and they may not. either way, we’ll be here to support you. (p.s. i saw that you responded to someone else in here, but did not @ them or quote what they said. if you want people to see what you said to them, make sure you do one of the methods mentioned )

    anyone past 50 on here?

    My neighbors let their dog run around loose in our cul-de-sac - the 2 things I don't like about that is sometimes the dog will run at me barking loudly and it makes me nervous that it might attack, and it goes into my backyard and poops there. There is a fence, but the previous people took the gate with them when they left and I just hadn't gotten around to getting a new gate (but if I'm going to stay here for a while longer I probably should go ahead and get one), so that part is kind of on me. But they should keep an eye on the dog and not let it do that. Their kids were accustomed to carrying their play over into my backyard, too, because the previous occupants had kids and they apparently played together, but fortunately my sister asked them not to play in our yard before I got here (she occupied the house a few weeks before I did because I was still in Calif. making preparations to move at the time I bought the house). I won't stop you from posting it if you want (but would appreciate if it were put in a spoiler)

    Incredibly Ace Moments

    Recently I was chatting with a bunch of my track teammates before practice and we were over by the weight room because that's where the coaches tend to be, and a bunch of the girls were looking at the guys in there and going "Wow look at all those muscles😏 " And then my response was, "Yeah! Imagine how much work they've put in to get to that point!" and everyone just kinda stared at me like "Huh??" and then it registered with me that they thought it was sexy

    What is your Favorite Manga?

    Assassination Classroom is my all-time favourite, Houka is a very close second. There’s so many others that I’d have to go by category but those are the top two . I Want to Eat Your Pancreas is another great one as well 😊

    I'm really happy that you included the #RedInstead hashtag in your profile! Our school did another one of those "Wear blue for autism awareness" things so some people I know decided to wear red instead. It's great that neurodivergent people are finally speaking up for themselves!

    Hello all!

    Thank you both for the kind welcomes!

    Teen Corner

    I actually want to have kids but I know that it'd be a bad idea as I'm far too scatterbrained to take care of another human being, especially a small one that needs a bunch of attention, for more than a few hours at a time. I can barely take care of myself as it is so it definitely wouldn't be a good idea to give me someone to take care of. I'd be more likely to get some kind of low attention pet or plant than a child
