Anonymous: I follow you originally because of all your art. And then all of the star trek. And I found out that you're asexual (or something of the sort, right?) But I stuck around because you seem really um, personable? is that the word? I'm interested in your story and where you're going in life because you seem really interesting. And super adorable! And quite beautiful! Have a good day.

Alright I’m keeping you- you seem cool and super cute

And thank you so much for sharing! This is just so nice to say and overwhelming and i just thanks haha

If you’re Christian I hope you don’t believe asexuality exists because you are implying you and/or others are immune from sinful lust, which is applying divine properties to humans and therefore defying crucial theological principles.

It’s just in asexuals are actually have divine properties 

No but literally this is why I keep telling people I get anger as a primary response when I talk to christians about my lack-of-lust thing.

Like, you’d think that christians would be cool with aces but no ….our existence defies their normality of a certain sin- and they can no longer use everyone else as an excuse for “struggling with lust”. Christians would rather break us than reevaluate their standards of normal

Christianity (in general blah blah blah) favors celibacy, not asexuality.

Primarily because celibacy is seen as the triumph of self-restraint over the temptation of lust.

Getting rid of that temptation? Well that makes things unfair.

Especially when many churches build up a whole culture of modesty for the girls so they don’t become a “stumbling block” for the boys, and focuses almost entirely on abstinence-only sex ed (if such topics are ever mentioned in youth groups).

Of course many of the people who say stuff like that don’t really mean any harm by it. It’s what they’ve been taught over and over again in church and they still take it as fact. Sometimes people just don’t know any better. 

But then some people just don’t care and are malicious about it.

But there should be room in the Christian community for asexuality and in the church.

Yes this exactly. It’s not the no-sex thing that is favored, it’s the struggle and restraint over temptation. 

I say I don’t struggle with that particular thing- well, every church I’ve ever been to under whatever denomination has taken that of me just being a blatant liar. To lust is human! And she is human, so, clearly- lust happens! Why would she lie like that? To make herself look better than everyone else? And why trust/befriend someone who lies so openly? Actually- it’s best just to stop talking to her all together.

wittyandcharming: last thing I copied/pasted: These twisted tangles/shall be the end of her/each their own guilty confession,/snarling in husky,/love drunk voices,/whispered in soughing/windblown knots./Each ivy vine/pulled through the trellis comb/snags/and holds,/ensnaring wine-colored teeth/while curses hiss forth/through gritted porcelain/until the vines/are stripped/and smoothed. Yeah it's a poem a friend told me years ago to write about makeout-hair haha

super rad!
