whatever fuck it y’all are just getting truth bomb tuesday a few days early okay IT’S TOO LATE TO TURN BACK NOW IT CANNOT BE UNDONE
I had to.
Acephobia in the LGBT+ Community from the documentary (A)sexuality.
It is just…so fucking weird how threatened people feel when it comes to Asexuality. I still can’t wrap my mind around it.
I’m so happy this post is being reblogged by LBGT+ people who aren’t asexual. I keep on reading posts by non-ace LGBT+ people of support to the ace community, and of being stunned by this reaction by a movement which should know better than to judge. AND THAT MAKES THIS ACE SO FREAKING HAPPY. The woman in the first photo expresses my sentiment. I know I belong in the queer/LGBTQIA movement. I want to belong. But I just don’t know if I’m welcome. I’m so happy that there are so many people on Tumblr who do not fall into the catagory of outright refusal of asexuality.
I know not a lot of people understand asexuality. And I know there’s confusion about it, about our experiences, and about how we fit in the movement. But let’s talk about this. Let’s have this conversation.
I mostly don’t delve into the ace tags, but I hear there’s a lot of ace-hate that and I really don’t get it. I don’t understand how asexuality is threatening.
You know what I (as a queer ace-spectrum person) find most threatening? Getting unwanted sexual unwanted advances from both queer and straight people. I’ve gotten them from people of all spectrums and it always makes me profoundly uncomfortable, and often unsafe. It just boggles my mind how people are upset by the concept of asexuality. That’s like getting really mad at someone who isn’t hungry. What’s the point? Just shut up eat your own sandwich. (And stop chewing on me.)
Wow, the fuck the people in those images.
Nobody has the right to disrespect anybody else’s sense of self. It may not be for, you but that does not give you the right to be an asshole.
We really need to push more for LGBTQIA+ to be a standard, instead of just LGBT, especially considering that even the B and T are already invisible in much of the community.
Not supporting some of us = not supporting all of us.
holla @ my multitude of ace/demi/etc friends, i hope y’all now you are super welcome in this queer’s queer spaces b/c they belong to you, too. i’ve had that documentary on my netflix to-watch list for a while but this makes me really want to sit down and finally watch it

The moonlight shows us for what we really are. We are not among the living, so we cannot die, but neither are we dead.
Do you know what your job is? Yes, I do.

Why are we shitting on a kids movie? It’s a movie, calm the fuck down. If you liked it, awesome. If you hate it, alrighty. Just stop. I’ve seen this presentation so many times that it’s stupid.
Does anybody really watch to enjoy or to be a huge critic?
"Shitting on a kids movie" Did you even fucking read what I wrote? If you think pointing out its problematic side while telling people that they can like what they like = shitting on a movie lol
Here’s the fucking thing though, I’m “shitting” on a kids movie because media has a huge, huge impact on how we view society. And do you know who’s really impressionable? Kids.
Have you heard of the Clark Doll Experiments where African American children repeatedly picked the white doll over the black doll? Why do you think that is? If you guessed internalized racism from negative media portrayals of blackness and normalization of white beauty standards, you’d be right. Or how about this recent study that shows that TV boosts the self esteem of white boys? Huh, I wonder if that’s because characters tend to be overwhelmingly white and male.
The thing is that how people are represented (or not represented) in media shapes core social opinions and even self esteems of young children. Disney, a company that specializes in media for children, perpetuating media inequality is a problem that should be pointed out and criticized.
Sorry your “I just watch things to shit on them because I’m a party pooper” strawman does not exist.
So yeah why don’t you sit the fuck back down and go block Frozen on Tumblr Savior if you’re so upset. Thanks.
