Hey guys I'm back again and trying to stop myself from being a misanthrope

Been bored and busy looking around at other ace places and it always the same dumb stuff just in varying quantities, I had to leave because I couldn't take it. Made an ace friend in real life and turned out to be extremely rude and sporting a type A personality you could only dream of and every ace i've met since then is hard to communicate with. Now i'm back to square one again like when I nearly got banned on aven for absolutely nothing.

I think this is the only ace place i've been to that seems chill but I think i've given up on ace/lgbt stuff for a long time. I need to take a break, stop going to ace meetups and other forums before I lose my mind and condemn the human race for all eternity. I miss you guys lol

Awwww . . . don't give up!
I agree, the ace scene has morphed into something that I can't even recognize, (and wouldn't want to be affiliated with) but I suspect that much of that is due to society's gradual shift toward more and more reliance on smart phones and "arms length" relationships.
It has reached a tipping point and I think we are just seeing the beginnings of the damage that it will cause.
I will stop before I go off on a complete tangent, but my prognosis for the emotional health and happiness of future generations is pretty grim at this point, to put it mildly.

I don't know about you, but I don't even bother with talking about ace related things outside of here (and rarely on here for reasons) and counseling/therapy. Otherwise, I just occasionally tell people I'm an ace (my public label and the most true one) and move on. It saves me a lot of drama and lets me move on in life. If people get triggered over it, it's their own dam fault. I'm basically fine with being the only ace. I realize most people are going to seemingly "worship" sexual activity.

I consider myself a misanthrope of sorts. People are dumb and will tend to get themselves killed. I relax that a lot and don't always follow it, but dammit if I don't hate people as a whole.

I'm not one of those uh, "flaming aces" if that is what you call it? Basically those who buy an ace flag and memorabilia and tell everyone and their grandma their ace and make sure the world knows. I'm like the complete opposite. Besides the only forum i've been on outside of here is an asexual discord server. I made some friends actually through it who aren't completely nuts though I just feel disappointed by how the lgbt community (and most minority communities) are kinda sucky and exclusionary. Same rhetorics, same viewpoints and stuff. Misanthrope is half me joking, half me upset with the world right now haha

I'm just hoping maybe it'll calm down like it does in the past. There's always a massive outrage in history and then it mellows out. Most can happen is more visibility and more people becoming aware, maybe we'll see asexuals and other communities mainstream and have more diversity in world views. Right now my ace friend calls the community "full of angry elitists" and I honestly don't blame them.
