Re: Remind me Never EVER look at AVEN again!

At the momment they have a facade of "we think members are important...we think members votes are important"...but in reality what they actually think is "members votes that make us transparent and accountable are not important" Personally I'd like a none of the above as a protes...

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

I think your wrong You know, you can blame the media but that has nothing to do with asexuality. The stupidity and out of control labelism is by our own community and not the media so blaming them is just hooey. Most of the media does not know we exist Can you point out where I said they are not par...

My own personal position is well known, asexuality is the lack of sexual attraction...some claim it to be a desire based defintion..they are entitled to be wrong of course :lol: the one thing I do keep seeing however is that full time asexuals are asexual..no one else everyone else apparently comes ...

Yeah saw that too. I certainly feel more confident about the work the declass team are doing more than the admod team.

It should be an interesting read to see who values openness, democracy and valuing members wishes..and those who don't.

Re: Remind me Never EVER look at AVEN again!

To answer Pif's question. My own ideology is that Asexuality has a place in the LGBTQ+ alphabet soup due to the extensive overlap with different identities (1 in 5 are trans, many have romantic partners of same sex, kinks, etc) and that I view LGBTQ+ as a 'misfits/ those that don't fit heteronormat...

Re: Remind me Never EVER look at AVEN again!

Can I ask, purely out of interest. We had many polls in aven about asexuality being seen as part of the lgbtqwerrtyuiopooplop and more than most said no based on many asexuals are not gay/queer or even sexual.

How will your project represent those asexuals if your including asexuality?
