Re: Kinda sad this site is potentially gonna die soon

I've done some investigation into Discord and I'm not sure that it's a place where Apositive would fit in. I know it's more than just gamers and that they have a lot of servers dedicated to worthy causes and ideas, but I don't really want to associate Apositive with such a chaotic and potentially ho...

Re: Kinda sad this site is potentially gonna die soon

I'm not sure what to do with Apos, if anything, although I'm sure we will download all of the data and save it for posterity before we pull the plug. I'm on Facebook fairly often and I've thought about starting an Apositive page over there (not a public page - they have private options) but I'm not ...

Re: Remind me Never EVER look at AVEN again!

I've thought about it and I don't see any problem with closing this thread, although I definitely want the contents to stay visible.
If the need arises before the end of the year then another "gripe about AVEN" thread can always be created.

Re: Remind me Never EVER look at AVEN again!

Ciri, the only reason anybody could say that you're the biggest shit stirrer in AVEN's history is if they have forgotten its history. I can think of several that were legendary, including one that had a crush on one of the early admins and actually went so far as to stalk her in real life! Another o...

Hi esvi, and welcome to Apositive. :) When it says the connection is not secure it just means that it wouldn't be approved for things like money transactions.

Re: Would you go to a lgbt pride event for asexuality

Nowadays I'm more of a stealth asexual. I'm also an older woman with grey hair, and I find that some people seem to be more squicked at the idea of senior women enjoying sex than they are at the idea of us being dis-interested. Part of me wants to fight the stereotype, the other part just wants to c...

Re: So have I been bullshitting my sexuality all these years?

I think that the current trend of subdividing sexual identities into a hundred different micro-identities will ultimately do more harm than good. I like to use broad, all-encompassing identities, so if someone says they are asexual then that's enough for me. I don't care if they fall into a fringe a...

Re: No sexual desire/attraction claims are wrongheaded

The whole concept of political lesbianism makes me want to denounce feminism as a massive fraud.
Luckily it doesn't seem to be a prevailing concept, so I can ignore it, but . . . grrrr.

Re: Working on an Article for a Magazine

It is easier in a lot of ways to socialize with other asexuals because you don't have to worry about accidentally sending the wrong signals, but other than serving as ways for asexuals to meet each other, the various asexual websites don't seem to be accomplishing very much. I agree that a substanti...

Re: 15 Reasons You're An Asexual Moron

I'm not sure that fetishism is rare among aces, although I'm equally unsure if It's not. Some fetishes are not always sexual in nature, so that could be a factor. I personally know some aces with fetishes and some (as far as I know) without, but the main thing they have in common is that they aren't...

Re: Old Ace Codger here

Interesting that there is an actual test for asexuality, even if there might be some uncertainty as to its accuracy.
It's a start, and at least it's finally being taken seriously.

Re: Working on an Article for a Magazine

I think I know what you mean. Being asexual is so much easier now than it was when I was still in my (theoretical) reproductive years.
I'm still not afraid to use the nose-picking analogy if people get too snoopy, though.

Yep. Sometimes you just gotta.
Nope. 'Don't want or need any help.
