Re: we have expletive deleted?

I was going to stay out of this because I don’t much feel that it is my place. I can easily follow a simple rule that doesn’t put me out too much, even if I don’t agree it. Fine, no worries, seems a bit silly but it is your site. However, while I obviously don’t claim to speak for PIF, I think I’m w...

Re: Romantic and sexual orientation

This is something that must be understood at the forefront when talking models. They are simplified to explain either very specific or large, general ideas, not to be a this-is-how-it-is descriptor of anything. I agree, I just think it is important to acknowledge a model’s weaknesses upfront for va...

Re: Romantic and sexual orientation

OK here's something I've been wondering about for a while. Is it that sexual attraction is a huge factor for most people in whom they fall in romantic love with? Or is it that society tells people they can only fall in love with those they're sexually attracted to? Is it a combination of these thin...

Re: Common occurance amongst asexuals.

I wonder sometimes… how much this has to do with more awareness of trans*, non-binary options, etc. in the asexual community. And maybe (I have no idea about this one) more awareness of asexuality in the trans* community? This is anecdata, but it does seem like there are many people who question the...

Re: Updating of the AVENwiki

I found a new source ! The German AVENwiki has a page written in April 2007 that says the Nonlibidoist page was gone at the end of 2006, so that is probably why the wayback machine just shows a directory for 2007 (I think, Dargon, you said it may have been 2007 or the end of 2006 in another thread o...

Re: Updating of the AVENwiki

Oops I didn't mean for it to sound like the sexuals and asexuals were segregated... I'll have to phrase that sentence differently (maybe I'll just cut the "for asexuals and sexual allies"). Did you want to add anything to the note about guidelines? I feel kind of uncomfortable saying anyth...

Re: Updating of the AVENwiki

The best dates I have for the end of the Official Nonlibidoism thingy is based on the wayback machine. I've also done some searches before to see it talked about on AVEN. Other than that, I don't know too much about it. My impression is that it never had much of an influence in the asexual communit...

Re: Updating of the AVENwiki

Thank you KAGU143, that gives some insight into the community structure here. This may be a stupid question, but did the information in the knowledge base vanish? I’m seeing zero posts across the board there, but it sounds like it did contain things at one point. Sadly, the thread you have linked, h...

Re: Updating of the AVENwiki

various activists in the gay, transgendered and feminist communities who have hijacked AVEN and turned it into a vehicle for promoting their particular ideology rather than for discussing asexual issues. AFAIK the people here are not friendly to the notion of asexuality becoming a vermiform appendi...

Re: Updating of the AVENwiki

Thanks for such an in-depth answer Dargon, that is exactly the kind of information I am looking for. I've been reading old AVEN threads but it is hard to get a feel for the overall mood of a forum at a given time through keyword searches. This thread was...interesting. Karl/Liver was later Live R Pe...

Re: Updating of the AVENwiki

Hello, I’m one of the people working on improving AVENwiki (to be clear though, not a member of the PT). It would be very helpful if I could find out/comfirm when Apositive was founded, who started it, and why it was founded. Suggestions for any other basic facts or significant events on Apositive w...
