— Honest question:
What’s so wrong with asexuals being included in the Travor Project…? Why would anyone be against availability of suicide prevention measures….?
I see anger about it from both sides, but I’ve not seen any actual arguments for or against it.
I have nothing against support for asexual people, but I’ve seen a strong prevailing opinion that the reason asexual people are likely to commit suicide is that they are repressing their sexual urges and that is unhealthy. I don’t know how much of it springs for ideologies within the people running the Trevor Project and how much it is coming from misinformed supporters of it, but it immediately makes me hesitant to go near it.
I could be wrong, though.
That is… ummm… how do I say this nicely? Bullshit.
the reason asexual people are likely to commit suicide is that they are repressing their sexual urges and that is unhealthy.
It is complete and utter bullcrap.
— black rings
today i saw a random passenger on the bus who had a black ring on his right middle finger. i see him fairly regularly, and complimented it.
it’s funny what comes to sight and how vision changes when you’re ready to experience the world differently. i think i may even be ready to get my own black ring.
i read this the other day and it really spoke to me:
“It’s surreal and scary and crazy-making, living a life trying to play by the rules when you don’t even know what the game is, but everyone tells you that of course you know what it is, and nobody really explains anything. Even you think that you should know. Until the amazing possibility occurs to you that perhaps you are not feeling what everybody else is feeling. Wow! I remember the day that that realization really penetrated, after finding AVEN: ‘I can be different. My god, there are others. This is actually a legitimate human experience!’”

I ordered mine! I personally got an adjustable sized one, from Etsy (I can find the link later, if you’d like) and it’s super awesome! I can’t wait to get it, but I hope they ship it soon, because I’m going to have a new address soon…
