Re: Disability and asexual ?

You won't get any argument from me, and certainly no pitchforks. I have long maintained that there are at least two kinds of asexuality, although I termed the acquired kind "functional" asexuality. Those posts are around here someplace, but they're a few years old. In any case, functional ...

Re: Disability and asexual ?

I admit that I'm puzzled by the idea of being "ace in practice"? That sounds more like voluntary celibacy, although I might be reading it wrong. I can definitely understand how physical disabilities and chronic depression can play havoc with a person's feelings of self-worth, and that can ...

Re: Fruit Wars Return!

I thought that a fruit was the seed-bearing part of the plant, and a vegetable was anything else (leaves, stem, roots, etc.) Don't get me started on the various types of fruit, though. (Berries? Drupes? Droopy berries? HellifIknow!) Besides, I could be wrong about everything. Ya never know. I apprec...

How do you see any political basis for the current definition of asexuality?

Re: do you still...

The way I see it, a good act is still a good act regardless of what motivates it.
I don't have to trust the person who does it, but I'll give them some credit for choosing to do something helpful, even if they only do it to promote themselves. After all, they have plenty of non-helpful alternatives.

Re: How to become one with being asexual: become a nudist

I really have a hard time equating a desire for frequent nudity with any aspect of asexuality, because I don't see asexuality as being related to a poor body image. They seem like two completely unrelated subjects to me. They don't exclude each other; they just don't seem to overlap very much. Now, ...

My solution is to accept the fact that we are all equally flawed, and to not expect other people to behave any better than I do.

I don't think I would see any problem with it at all as long as it stayed in the privacy of a person's home. I'm not sure if it would help body image issues or not, but it probably wouldn't hurt.

I would say that it's not worth the worry, but then you might feel otherwise. The main thing (to me) would be to make sure that there aren't any potential health issues associated with it, and if there are then to beware of them and take preventative measures if possible. As for whether or not you'r...
