Ohh I’m glad it’s not just me who has never wanted a kid. My friends all act shocked if I ever mention it, like it’s an integral part of adult life.

 

Also, I can never understand why friends stay in bad relationships that they even admit are unhealthy. Wouldn’t everyone be happier if y’all just broke up? There’s lots of other people who would be better to date out there...

People using the phrase "food porn".

 

Seriously, I personally hate that phrase. Why do we have to ruin yet another innocent thing with sex innuendos?

Maybe this has already been posted. When couples on tv/movies take off ALL of their clothes when making out or more.  I don't know why it bugs me. People look better with their clothes on and from what I understand, intercourse works even when most of your clothes are on. Haha.  Unless its to keep your clothes from getting sweaty.....

I've never understood the excitement over an exposed or naked body, male or female. Also undergarments like bras or underwear. Why is that so interesting?

 

Also - romantic scenes in movies and all romcoms. I've never liked any of those parts of movies. I always skip these scenes in any movies I watch. Call me a heretic or whatever for not watching the movie in its entirety but these scenes are generally obtrusive to the plot of the movie for me. I can skip these scenes over completely and not miss anything important in the movie. 

 

Now I'm not against marriage or child birth - but I've never wanted it for me. And I don't understand how some people figure that as a necessity for women. I'm never getting married. I'm never having children (unless I adopt - an option for later in life). God bless all that do - but it won't be me.

The exact OPPOSITE of what some people in this thread are talking about is what's weird to me. And I'm pretty sure it's because I'm an asexual. I'm super comfortable with nudity. It doesn't make me feel anything or has any meaning, so the fact that the WHOLE WORLD gets SO UPSET about it... it's annoying. I see it as punitive on people for something that isn't their fault... having a fucking BODY.

 

I know some asexuals are repulsed and that's totally normal, too. It just seems that, for me personally, my lack of sexuality makes nudity totally normal.

I find everything around sex weird in general. Everything listed here.

 

Also find it weird how in movies the two leads always have to wind up together. It's like the story relies on them being together....even when it doesn't. I'd like to see a movie that isn't aimed at kids that actually focuses on a more realistic friendship between adults...rather then them instantly falling in love and having sex.

Man, I have felt the same way. Everyone seems to overall think "How can you not want kids?", and people just overall think that's weird. Sometimes I just say "I care about the humans who are here". Sometimes they understand.

Oh, my gosh. I hate that so much. Like, why does everything have to do with sex? It's as if people have genitals for brains.

That's exactly how I feel! I just want to support existing people, instead of having a desire to make new people. That gives me the happiness in life, not having biological children.

 

And I feel like some allos have nearly the opposite want; they just want to have biological children, regardless their circumstances and whether they're actually capable of/interested in bringing up a living person. They don't think things any further, they just want children like they want chocolate or alcohol etc. I've met some people like that 😕 Also, many people wanting to pair you up with anyone who has two legs and male genitalia feels the same. When you actually don't have a desire to have children, that whole thing seems like an addiction you were just supposed to have.

Yup, I think that some people simply are not able to bust of programming and inundated language that they were taught when they were young. Many just accept it as true without careful analysis, I hate to say. They think the norm is the only way, without there being variation to the matter. But hey, when you have playground nursery rhymes going "First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes a baby in a baby carriage!" 

 

Well, what should you expect?

Here's another thing I as an aroace find weird: how allo people describe sex and sexuality related stuff as "dirty/naughty/wrong/etc". It seems to even give "the kicks" to some allo people. I don't perceive sexuality that way, I just see it as a natural instinct or need such as eating or wanting to be a part of a group or something (and me just lacking that instinct). I've been wondering if this perception of "wrong" was brought by Christianity, or if it's something allo people naturally experience around the world?
