Re: Remind me Never EVER look at AVEN again!

I absolutely agree that Apos has had a number of elitists posting at various times. It comes with the territory since I choose to allow those with unpopular views to post what they want to without fear of reprisal. Still, without censoring the content of their posts, I have tried to pop in and oppos...

Re: Remind me Never EVER look at AVEN again!

Okay, this is weird. I already replied to the other thread before I read this, and I swear I was talking about the exact same thing. I have decided to call them exclusionists instead of elitists this time, but it's the same people. AVEN used to be very welcoming to a wide variety of asexuals, then t...

Re: A challenge to young Brits

I admit, I don't fully understand how British law works. Do they have to go through with actually leaving? Aren't there more steps necessary before that must happen?

Also, what becomes of Scotland?

Tan . . . I'm not sure what to say since I'm not sure what happened. I guess the only thing I can ask is that you hear all sides of any issue before you make a decision. That's generic enough that it should apply to anything.

Re: Is it time to remove the term Grey Asexual ?

I agree.
There are grey sexuals and there are grey asexuals. I have no idea where the precise line should be drawn. The real question for them, I would think, would be finding partners with roughly the same level of sexual interest.
(Maybe I'm overthinking it.)

I think Clinton will be much better than Trump, but only as a placeholder until we can (hopefully) find someone better.

PiF is to the REALITY of the asexual spectrum as TeaParty Republicans are to the REALITY of climate change.

No matter how much evidence refutes their beliefs, they will ignore it or dismiss it in order to cling to the faith.

Re: Equality or snowflake protectionism ?

Equality means equal respect and equal acceptance.

So, do you give equal respect and acceptance to young people who have questions about their gender identities and think they might be asexual, or do you start tossing around belittling words like "snowflakes"?
