Re: the NFL playoffs

I watched most of them (wasn't able to catch the 2nd half of the Ravens match unfortunately but saw all the rest bar the 2nd half of the Pats match which wasn't worth staying up for). I don't follow a particular team but enjoy watching it, the Saints@ 49ers game was fantastic entertainment especiall...

Re: the current effort to destroy Apositive

micahels if you really cared about Nancy and Kæth and the future of Apositive you'd stop making these ludicrous threads with ridiculous paranoid accusations, as this sort of nonsense doesn't keep in line with Nancy's vision of this site being respected by the scientific community at large.

Re: we have expletive deleted?

Reading Kæth's post makes me think there is some sort of trans-atlantic culture clash going on here. You can swear as much as you like on the BBC and any other UK station after the watershed (9pm I think-you often get American stars expressing surprise when they are on chat shows here and are told t...

Re: we have expletive deleted?

Nancy if it is about showing asexuals in a positive light (as you say) then where are all the historical examples of uses of swear words on this site that show it in a negative light? Olivier did the search and there wasn't any. No-one would read the examples he searched and look unfavourably upon A...

Re: we have expletive deleted?

AVEN still allows the f-bomb as far as I know....

And as for the reason you propose michaels then why didn't Nancy just say that when I asked her at the start of this thread, instead of just billing it as a personal preference of hers? Seems like you've just become a Nancy-worshiper <3 :clap:

Re: my message to the activists

...the feminist/LGBT crowd I imagine. The ones who parachute in here from AVEN just to put his nose out of joint.

Anyway, in my interview I don't think I mentioned anything to do with the LGTB (why would I? :eh: ).

Re: my message to the activists

Re: we have expletive deleted?

"Expletive deleted" has got a nice asexual vibe to it though, maybe the activists can use it as a slogan on t-shirts and stuff at parades.

Since we're having a fun discussion, I think I'll bring in another idea into the mix. In settings such as web forums, cussing is typically something I do not do often. Part of this is because my words are the only basis for my entire character on forums, part is simply not to make waves (I'll make ...

Also, the filter ruins the joke about American beer and sex in a canoe. However, with regards to people who get around via intentional typos like &q...

Re: visibility for vanilla asexuals

Would you not agree though Michael that on AVEN the vast majority of new members who post looking for (a)sexuality/relationship advice and then leave once they have their questions answered are of the cis/straight types of asexual?

My complaint is actually almost exactly the opposite one. There seems to be a huge bias towards representing asexuals as "normal" and "vanilla" in every other respect than not experiencing sexual attraction - when this picture really doesn't reflect the asexual community as I kn...

Question to the AVEN activist hit-squad (not PiF, he relinquished his membership I think ;) ): Do you see asexuals teaming up with the LGBTQ as a short-term thing, a way of piggybacking up the ladder to get a share of their visibility but with a view to remove the link once asexuality is out there e...

Belle and Sebastian. Always knew they were good but never put in any time to listen to them properly until now (plus was put off by reading how religious they are -but there's a only couple of songs where that comes through, to me).

Re: Common occurance amongst asexuals.

Yep the ones with big gender issues are going to be the ones going on about it most and so it will be noticeable that a lot of posts (on AVEN/tumblr etc) will be about gender stuff. If I think of real life experiences I've met over 50 asexuals and only one that I can think of identified as trangende...
