True. I was thinking that the stripes might be something useful to play with. Also, it would be easy to make their wings into a stylized letter A.

Hmmmmm . . . thanks for bringing back this thread, Cat. I wonder, is the asexual community ready to truly support a more grown-up alternative to AVEN, or are they content to hang around on the playground with the kids who are still trying on (or inventing) a new sexual identity every few months as t...

Re: qu'est-ce que c'est?

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

By that, I mean: "An asexual person is a person who does not experience sexual attraction."

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...

It is perfectly possible that you could be asexual, and asexuals are interesting because statistically they are much more likely to be attracted to people based purely on their character or interests, etc, rather than their sex, and that attraction is not sexual in nature. It can be intellectual or ...
