Re: we have expletive deleted?

I'm kind of trying to stay out of this - I don't agree with the filter, but I do think that it's Nancy's forum, so if that's what she wants, that's fine. But I'll chime in on the use of the word in the context of sex, at the risk of being judged negatively. I'm not a fan of the term "making lov...

Re: my message to the activists

I'm trying to get some sort of consensus, ghosts, but nobody has picked or rejected any of my guesses. :( If your guesses are right, I guess that means I'm an asexual activist? Because I did a couple interviews w/ academic types & did those zines a few years ago. And I suppose that makes a lot ...

Re: Are David Jay and the activists doing more harm than good?

I'm really not sure what you guys mean when you say "asexual activist." What does that mean? Are we talking about people who do media interviews & such? Or is it just people talking to LGBT organizations? If that's the case, I guess my feelings are that people who choose to do all the ...

Re: To consent or decline?

I think that if you're not interested in consenting to any sexual activity, then you have your answer, right? It's really based on what you want to do & how you're feeling. So if you don't want to do anything, you shouldn't have to do anything. If you're in a relationship with a sexual partner, ...

Re: How many rebound relationships does a recently divorcee have

I was wondering why spammers do things like that... They had a period as their signature, but no link attached to it.

But yeah, it sounded odd, so googling the text is a good way to find out where else it's been posted.

Re: In-love with a self-described hypersexual.

Personally, I think it's easier to describe your own sexuality w/o labels, rather than explaining the concept of asexuality first & then all its variations. Because everybody's different when it comes to sexuality - even if you're "sexual." I also think that when you describe how you f...

Re: Asexual Zine! - Call for submission

I have to admit I’m a bit taken back by the accusation that Weird Terrain "mortally injured" AVENues. I think what really injured that publication was the fact that Hallucigenia stepped down - & I’m assuming she was a bit burnt out by being solely in charge of the thing. I only did one...

Re: Repulsed asexuals

Hm, I haven't visited AVEN in about a week, so maybe I should stay away for now. As for terminology, I kind of agree with Siggy in that there aren't any one-word solutions. Actually, do we even need terms to differentiate between asexuals when it comes to how they feel about sex? It just seems sort ...

I am probably guilty of being too harsh to newer people when they are ranting, but I do understand why it's good to be, I dunno, gentle yet firm (& I honestly do try to do this). A lot of people over there do change their attitudes over time because I think a lot of other AVEN members recognize ...

Sex-positivity & repulsion are not mutually exclusive, definitely. There is a difference between repulsion & antisexual. This might get me yelled at, but I'd like to say this somewhere - I think "repulsed asexual" sounds pretty awful as a term & identity. And also, even though ...
