    Area 51

    Okay so on September 20th 2019 there is a plan to storm Area 51 in Naruto run. A facebook even page was made and now apparently 1.5mil people are planning to go or so they say. I think it would be hilarious if people ended up forgetting and going oops. Lol but for fun and interest what are your thoughts on this craziness? and the epic memes coming out of this? Anyone going or saying they going but just for show and plan to stay home and watch the news to see if the Aliens are found or not? What do you think is going to happen? Is it a joke or not?

    Sexual Compromise & Support

    Yep, being desired is the key thing generally, but I meant our lack of ambivalence about sex means it's an effort to get our heads round someone being ambivalent about it - pretty much what you said about not wanting someone else to feel as bad as you felt.

    Sexual Compromise & Support

    It's hard to explain. Harder so for me because he's also aromantic so I can't even say that it comes from a place of romance. It's more of a feeling from him of 'I really like and trust this person in front of me and I feed off of her affection energy even though I don't reciprocate it normally.' So, like a feedback loop. He gets a charge off of my affection and I can see how it affects him and it makes me really happy. Once on that cycle, arousal becomes organic and things just happen. I'll tell you why. I've been in relationships where I was pressured into sex by my partner when I wasn't into it. It's fine now and then, but it can become daunting really quickly and you can end up feeling used and unloved. I had several secret cries after unwanted sex sessions. So I don't dare want to make someone else feel that way. I don't dare be that other person. I really really want to feel wanted, yes. You can do all the motions, but if I don't feel wanted, then the sex is completely pointless to me.

    Master Trump Thread

    To a highly narcissistic guy like Trump who still is blaming those he targeted, this is a political move to condemn his words. Nothing else. Remember. He is the least racist person you will ever meet. Not a racist bone. His heart is another story, but his bones check out. He said it himself during his campaign. He could literally shoot someone, and face little to no repercussions that would even remotely impede his campaign. Anyone opposing him know this, and are using this to for political gain. There is no way anything he says can outrage or disgust anymore. Nudes of him would have to be leaked. You clearly can't get rid of him. More energy should be put towards ensuring those he runs against are strong enough to bury him. The population has spoken. Trump being hired was it stating a good portion if it was sick of things. I see this as an opportunity. He has awaken many who likely would never interest themselves in politics. He has sparked a voice for change. Even global leaders are aware of it, urging patience before getting back to business with the US.

    The answer to that is nothing!
  7. That's exactly what it does, if it's a site issue. You could circumvent this using a VPN, but using a good VPN can get a little pricey. Firefox doesn't autotranslate anything for me. Maybe it's the version or distro you're using? Some installations of Firefox come preinstalled with certain extensions (i.e. automatic Google Translate). Usually you can disable these in the extensions menu, but sometimes you can't. I would suggest maybe using a VPN like Tunnelbear or NordVPN alongside this. It's not the best solution, but it's probably good enough until you can find a better one.

    Nice! What’s better than getting paid and also getting free sweets in the process.

    For 30-somethings and those around that age

    My body's pretty wrecked from manual labor (arboriculture and organic farming takes a lot out of a person and with little pay to show for it), though I'm still somewhat fit. Thing is, going to school in my mid 30's for something that falls outside the scope of my job experience (Math + Engineering) and still having to meet financial obligations has a way of raising the blood pressure 🤣. There was a point in my mid 20's where I was deciding if I wanted to have children (didn't know I was asexual then), and I personally felt that bringing a child into this world conflicted with my ethics especially because they'll be inheriting a destabilizing planet with a powerful few in charge who aren't interested in fixing the problems they caused. Additionally, I am on the spectrum (ASD); life was difficult for me because I was undiagnosed until my 30's, and I didn't have the resources I needed like I have now to be successful in my studies. If I had a kid it would be difficult to provide a nurturing environment if I passed along my ASD, plus if the child were bullied because they were on the spectrum it would be especially hard for me because my K-12 years, and even parts of my adult years were especially traumatic. For me at that time, not bringing a child into this world is about sparing them the hardship that I endure(d); it is an act of mercy.

    They did in this one at least. And yeah they were pretty good. I kept getting looks from the ladies there though, so I might never be allowed back. ( ˊ̱˂˃ˋ̱ )

    People in general seem to need a lot of reassurance when presented with ideas foreign to them.

    Have a slice of coming-out cake

    Thanks! I guess I should make sure they know I still like people, even if I don't like them romantically or sexually. That could get confused, maybe they'd think the orientation is some kind of rejection of everything.
  13. Glad I'm not the only one lol 🤣 I guess I never looked at chess as war (probably because I'm not very competitive) but that kind of makes sense I'll admit I have no clue who Jeffrey Epstein is but that is a messed up thing to do since even if he asked permission the employees may not have felt able to say no so it's an abuse of power Agreed

    Does Random Capitalization bother you at all?

    I mean, for a title to an article, thread or even business name to name a few. I expect to see capitalized words. But randomly? Never experienced it.

    Incredibly Ace Moments

    We actually did have a tiny bit of sex ed in school. In fifth grade I think we covered both male and female anatomy in biology, and in seventh or eighth grade they showed us some videos about "you're going to feel feelings and this is how to handle them" and "always use protection or you're going to get a baby or an STD", but then also about "these parts are sensitive in males and females and touch them with care, don't be too rough with your partner"?? I remember a video clip where an animated girl and boy were standing across each other, both naked, and the boy was squeezing the girl's breasts and the girl was pulling the boy's penis and they were both hurting, WTF? 😂
  16. What do you mean? I can't find the option for changing language on Etsy. I could only change my presumed location and I don't want to do it because then prices wouldn't be displayed in Polish zlotys. Any site with more than one language version should enable simple switching and not assume that they know better what version do people want to use. I vastly prefer English to ungrammatical Polish.

    Incredibly Ace Moments

    In the 70s in Ontario, the only sex ed we had was during Grade 11 phys ed. The classes were segregated and we learned about how both sexes' reproductive systems worked. Plus a bit on STDs.

    So instead of focusing solely on the fact I don't experience sexual attraction or desire, I'll talk about that, but then also talk about how I actually do experience attraction and what that means to me. For example how some people have this vibrant energy that I personally find captivating. Maybe it's that they have a passion for a particular goal that makes them light up when they talk about it. I find that amongst other things makes me want to have more of them in my life. Instead of wanting to share energy and intimacy though sex, I feel this desire to exist as kind of mutual muses. To share a space where we can combine that energy through conversations, actions, humor etc and become more. Inspire and support each other, build each other up, and create a space that's ours and fits how we wish the world could be. The abridged version if the person is more of a casual acquaintance, or just curious rando might just be a "I don't feel drawn to anyone sexually, but some people just have this energy I find thrilling, and it makes me want to have more of them in my life to see what we could build" Hard to say on reactions, so far most people who know I'm ace already know a good bit about what that means so I haven't had to win anyone over so far. The only difficult one was when I came out to my partner about being ace and it seemed to help. At first he felt rejected because of the lack of sexual desire, which made perfect sense, but did at least he was then able to understand that he is still special to me, and not someone who I could just replace with anyone. Some of it is for me too. It seems really easy for people to feel down about being ace or aro from thinking about the things they might be missing out on. To me keeping a positive focus reminds me that I might not "get" the sexual world, but frankly I'm rich enough without it.

    Sexual Compromise & Support

    I think it's because we (sexuals) can't imagine being so unbothered by sex, one way or another. We really want it with partners, we really don't want it with people we don't desire.

    Sexual Compromise & Support

    This is something interesting, if you don't mind, what else is there? This is something my spouse often feels like (even though she doesn't consider me asexual) too, and I always tell her that "no, I'm ok". I honestly don't know why she feels guilty in these situations. Well I do know, but I can't relate to it at all. Like yay, you had your fun and I'm happy that you did, it doesn't matter that I wasn't "into it". I guess it's just one of those other asexual-allosexual differences.
  24. I check whatever’s in my notifications, which is usually social media. EDIT: THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO JUST GET UP? How?????
