Re: Hello from a Confused Newbie

Hello and welcome. Let me say I can relate quite a bit to what you have to say. Romance is something I don't get (though my views on the subject are quite outside the norm), and in the simplest terms, a normal, monogamous, romantic relationship is not something I want. Sex, I am much the same. I am ...

Re: Reviving Apositive

Indeed, Apositive seems to go almost dead for awhile, then pick up with quite a bit of daily activity for awhile, rinse, repeat.

And huzzah for another year!

Virtually everything that has passes since 9/11 in the name of "national security" should be more than enough to debunk this statement.

Re: Idk where I am welcome...

The blowing the nose analogy is interesting. With that (and other bodily functions not mentioned) I tend to not enjoy the process, but I do enjoy the sense of relief afterwards. Would it be the case that those who don't enjoy masturbation do not enjoy the process, but enjoy the relief afterward, or ...

Re: Idk where I am welcome...

Labels are kind of a double edged sword. On the one hand, they are useful for describing one's self, and for finding social groups one can easily plug into. However, they are often restrictive, may cause people to think incorrect things about you, and may pressure you into conforming into things you...

Good news! You happen to have stumbled upon one of the few asexuality sites where actually talking about sex in order to understand (a)sexuality isn't frowned upon, and is actually encouraged! As to your sexuality, a few things I've noted over the years. Many asexuals do not find that romantic and s...

Can't say I'm familiar with any songs about washing cars on lunch hours.

Re: we have expletive deleted?

You know, I think changing the word filter to "f*ck" seems a pretty fair compromise. It still allows for the original intent to come across and does not harm readability, while at the same time politely discouraging its use.

At risk of going into political, how did Barack Obama allow you to see the doctor? I still don't have health insurance, and I am glad there has been quite a bit of trouble with the mandate that requires people to purchase it, because I cannot afford it.

Re: trait vs. fundamental

Depends on the person. Some people do seem to define themselves by their sexuality or their hair color. For others, it is just a trait. Likewise, some people define others by their sexuality or hair color, while others don't.

It would make sense, I think, in "Contributions" was made part of the site proper. It doesn't make sense for it to be in the War Room forums, and I think many people would find it a valuable resource to have.
