    Homeless issue

    Went for a walk through a park a block away that has a creek in it, the entire thing was filled with tents and sleeping bags. It was horrible. And I though about it... that is exactly where I would go. I was also researching local protocol. The city I live in has had a dramatic rise in homelessness. Lots of counts of drug/alcohol police calls, but then... just as many mental health calls. The police have no idea what to do. Though they did ask people not to shoot them (literally), which was nice.

    Any asexuals like me, over 60?

    I'm in the 'older' category!! 56 and a newly diagnosed asexual! My life has literally been changed in the most profound way in the last week after finding this site. I feel like I've just stepped out of a box into freedom!

    Help with Gender Identity

    I can see that being true. I have nothing against the binary genders, but I do believe gender and sex have become two different things. We can't think of them as the same thing. I'm fine with people referring to me by my physical sex, but I can't say I connect with it. It's just normal and overall easier. But I agree when it comes to stereotypes. That's an issue with a lot of things.
  6. Yes business is business to me, if you want you’re business to succeed you don’t mix business with personal feelings or relationships.

    I’m not sure if this counts as asexual.

    You could be homoromantic asexual
  8. I'm rather undecided on the whole spectrum v. non-spectrum thing (though I lean towards the latter)... but as far as I'm concerned - if you aren't interested or have any sexual attraction... don't have sex. If you're sex repulsed, absolutely don't do it. The rest is communication shortcuts.
  9. Not sure about everybody here but me personally? I think a lot of it has to do with my Autism and how I have been brought up by my mother. I have a very layback nature when it comes to discussions and only really get flustered if there are true facts thrown into the equation and people are denying them. (Ya know, like that alcohol is classified as a drug as a quick example).

    How can i make him understand ?

    `i tried to explain to my fiance that I was attracted to him aesthetically and romantically but not sexually. It didn't go down well! But now that I finally know who I am, I feel soooo happy! Its remarkable what a weight it has taken off my shoulders! And its so great to find this community only last week ...
  11. Ian Somerhalder :3 Daniel Radcliffe Chris Hemsworth Ryan Reynolds And several youtubers, but I'm not sure if they count as celebrities. xD

    Homeless issue

    I wouldn't say awful. It's just hard to have true caring feelings for complete strangers, especially since some of them can be terrible human beings themselves to some degree.

    Area 51

    Pretty much every community and their mothers is making fun of this, and all I gotta say is... Let it happen. Natural selection needs to happen someday, if you ask me, and this would be a good chance for some true classic natural selection happening (even if it is cruel to say).

    What does it mean to be a racist?

    Racism is very clear and easy to define. It's the belief that you better than someone else because of their race being different from your own, and it can happen with any two different races, including the different varieties of the European Races.

    Is this asexuality or something else?

    Asexuality is a spectrum because no two people who could be described as "asexual" feel the same (and in general, no two people feel the same). It's not just whether 5 second of sexual attraction still qualify as "asexual" etc. - it's also about the great variance in attitudes towards sex. As @Anthracite_Impreza pointed out, some asexuals are more sex-indifferent, some more sex-averse... I see no reason not to treat it as a spectrum, apart from some people's aversion to he word "spectrum". (Just to make it clear, I believe that being "0,01% sexual" can still count as "pretty much asexual".) More seriously, for me sex aversion is a kind of spectrum too. Really, when will people realise that labels are only labels and that it's next to impossible for two people who describe themselves as "sex-averse" to experience what they call "aversion" in the same way? Sex aversion can be differentiated along different axes: Whether it's generalised (known as "sex-repulsed") or limited to the possibility of personally having sex ("sex-averse"). (I still use the phrase "spectrum of sex aversion", not "spectrum of sex repulsion", because if we define sex repulsion as generalised and sex aversion as non-generalised - every sex-repulsed person is sex-averse, but not every sex-averse person is sex-repulsed: sex aversion : sex repulsion = rectangle : square.) What kind of negative feelings is predominant: disgust, anxiety, discomfort etc. For example, for me sex seems much more frightening than disgusting. People may also have different reactions to different kinds of sexual content, stimuli, situations... For example, I've read someone mention that they feel most repulsed by sounds of people having sex. Which aspects of sex are disgusting, frightening, off-putting, distressing etc. to a particular person - for example nudity, loss of control, body fluids, inequality, risk of STDs and/or pregnancy, just a nagging feeling that "this is not for me"...

    Help with Gender Identity

    I don't really get binary genders, these feel stupid and useless, and often toxic due to gender roles or stereotypes, so I just slap agender label on myself to tell people to keep their binary gendered nonsense away from me. Hopefully it will scare away girly girls and manly men, I don't like tribalism that those genders encourage. Sadly, in real life, there is no 'keep me out your binary gender mess' option available that is practical, so like you, I just go by my assigned one whenever I'm being forced to pick one.

    I’m not sure if this counts as asexual.

    Welcome If you’ve never experienced sexual attraction that’s Asexual. There’s different types of attractions-

    Greed is good?

    It's funny. Men are greedy for power which leads to war. Women are greedy for beauty which leads to chopping down the rainforest, and everybody is greedy for money which causes a crap ton of problems on it's own. Greed has been and has always been humankind's worst enemy and it will be our downfall in the end.

    a-spec flag concept

    Oh! I misunderstood. Yeah, I've always thought there should be a green stripe in the ace flag to represent the (a)romantic orientations. It's different for us with the split attraction that other orientations may not think about. The flag could use more color anyway.
  20. I like the sound of having a squish! That would suit me just fine at the moment
  21. Aaah, that's cool. Living in the UK, I've never spoken to anyone before who has ever heard of Belleville. I feel very fond of it ...
  22. I think it's possible but it's more of a "gut feeling" type of thing which you usually shouldn't ignore but still be cautious with. I had this kind of gut feeling when I first started talking with my current boyfriend like almost two years ago and while we didn't start dating right away... I didn't give up on him because of having that feeling and we now been enjoying 7+ months of a happy relationship that seems will keep going strong.

  25. As the title said, I’m not sure if this counts as asexual. I identify as a lesbian, but I don’t really want fingers or anything else.. down there. Kissing is fine to me, and touching the chest is also fine with me. Those two things don’t bother me, but stomach or lower just makes me feel kinda weird. I think that I’m an asexual lesbian, because I’ve never experienced attraction to men, but does this count as asexual? Please let me know, because I’m confused. Thank you. 😊 (if this doesn’t make sense I’m very sorry, I’ll try to explain further if you ask.)
