Re: When any publicity is bad publicity

I'm glad you posed that ParaLLL because this conversation has been bugging me. I've questioned allot of my own input here and I think that stems from not completely getting the whole deffinition thing.

Re: poll: an irremediable world

I have to add, late I know, that I think humanity is good at heart and our problems can certainly be mended, mimes asside. I know about all the hurt and hate in the world. Our selfisish attitudes towards how others lead their lives and how we utilize the Earth's resources leaves us raw sometimes and...

Re: Life's Learning Curve

according to Wikipedia, Ase is: -a town in Nigeria -an acronym for lots of things ranging from space research to precious metal standards to sign language -a suffix used in biochemistry When I see 'Ase' I can only think 'Peer Gynt' :-) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OrhMv_4Q-YU Nice, thanks that wa...

Re: It feels like reality just set in.

So, after this conversation drifted to music, I went and wrote an asexual punk song. Using my persona SCREWTAPES, a C.S. Lewis refference. I hope you dig it. I made a full video for it.

Re: When any publicity is bad publicity

This does kinda remind me of the time surounding the Stonewall Riots, at the genesis of the gay rights movement. The question was over deffinitions then too. There was the "normal gay" side, suits and jobs and respectable members of society. And then there was the drag camp. In the end the...

Re: When any publicity is bad publicity

That was a realy well put argument, and I think you're right. You've given me alot to think about, thanks. You got me with the pescatarian/vegetarian thing.

Re: Life's Learning Curve

Its good to know we're both scatterbrained. I've been seeing this as an amorphous thing. An idea, a meme to be spread. Any idea that seems good, like the facebook thing, could be done by anyone who wants to contribute. My idea is basicly to start spreading the concept, do what I can to organize it a...

Re: When any publicity is bad publicity

The only problem I noted was that the perspective of the artictle is that she seems to be coming from the defensive "there is nothing wrong with me I swear, I have proof" angle. The assumption of society seems to be that if you're not into sex, if you find it un-apealing or un-interesting ...

Re: Life's Learning Curve

Wow, nice research on "Ase" (I would have never thought to do so). I'm sure there are tons of other meanings associated with something with so few letters. Thankfully language is maluable, gay used to mean happy after all. By the way, the facebook thing, I don't realy want to set that up, ...

Re: Life's Learning Curve

Just had a rethink on the youtube name. Asexual World Channel. I don't think I'm crossing any legal lines this way and it has a classic TV station ring to it. Good call letters too, AWC. And the logo typeface I designed still works, two diagonal letters and an open round on the end. After I shoot a ...

I know what you're saying Porcupine. That's sort of what I meant when I said I choose my words more carefully. I prefer to treat everyone as equals and ofensive language does sort of, self-segregate the speaker. But it can also bond a group. That's the power of the explative. I feel like swearing sh...

One of my roomates moved out, an iresponsible-young-punk-rocker. He bailed on the last bill he owed me and some delinquent rent. Under 50 bucks. T...

Re: Feminism

Comedians talk about the shame part of sex and self love alot. That was something that's always dumbfounded me about sex, they love it and are ashamed and somehow proud of the shame. I think maybe that's what all the swearing is about. I used to call myself foulmouthed I worked at swearing, but hone...

That's allways been my confusion with those sorts of insults. They do all seem to take away from gender roles, its funny 'cause men are more feminine than they know and likewise women with masculinity.

You can steal my ideas if I can steal some of yours, I particularly dig the "Asexuality exists". You could make it snarkier "I exist and I'm Asexual" perhaps...off the cuff. For handmade shirts without screenprinting, stencils are the way to go, rubber/lino block printing is pret...

Nice, I like those shirt ideas. I'm a tattooed person and as soon as I saw the abreviation Ace I was inspired. Thought about a tat with the a-s-e spelling, that seems to have the most potential for questions. I want to combine it with a playing card motif but I loathe gambling and don't want to be a...

Life's Learning Curve

I have been on a path of self discovery for some time, an actual quest. Around a year and a half ago, I realized I was an alcoholic. Coming to terms with that set me off toward a life change. I didn't know what that was, but I knew it was where I had to go. Thankfully, it turned out to be the liftin...
