Lol, :)


I believe that knowledge and experience has no age. I have been through a lot in my life. Lack of experience? heh, um, no. It's more of I am mature enough to make decisions for myself and you should respect that. Calling me a hypocrite and saying that no one can expect much of me because I am a teen is both steryotypical and inconsequential. I respect my religion and do not want to be judged for it, as it is against the rules.

Maybe I can find some scientific evidence for that, LOL :>

There are "asexuals", who are disinterested (if that's the word for it LOL) and there are "aromantics" who are disinterested in romantic relationships. One could be either or or both.

And then you might get into the whole "demiromanticpolysexualamorouszooplatonictransfato bjectkin" and it just leaves you shaking your head in "what the heck?" The farther you get into the whole gender politics thing the weirder it gets...but that's only really far down in the abyss of social networking. Stay away from there. It's a scary place.

The ONLY reason that your religion is even known is because YOU put it on the table as a justification for your opinion. If your position is supported by science then religion is irrelevant.

125 - BGK, chanchito cichlid, pictus cats, silver dollars, palmas bichir
125 - cichlids (severums, bolivian rams, chocolate), rainbows ( turquoise, red), loaches (angelicus, zebra, kuhli and horseface), plecos (BN, RL and clown), denison barbs, tiretrack eel, pearl gouramis, betta
90 - Congo tetras, african knife, upside down cats, spotted ctenopoma, kribensis, delhezzi bichir
2.5 - betta

Just popping in again. Just wanted to say that like all forms of sexuality we come in different flavors. I long for a relationship that's akin to high level friendship without the intimacy (I'm not a 'touchy-grope-y kind of person'). Someone to share the end of days with :) heck even get married because my mom promised to make my renaissance dress and while that's a terrible reason for marriage the tax breaks and other benefits are stupendous.

I have not come out about my asexuality except to my friends because it's incredibly difficult to explain and often met with supreme amounts of opposition and condescending attitude... for some reason. Real Life Social Anxiety doesn't help at all. I don't know that being labeled as 'spinster' or 'most likely a lesbian' by my sister even if the latter could be right (I honestly don't know... isn't it fun. No. No it is not.)

Feel free to PM me with questions I know tons of asexual resources and tend not to judge unless you judge first, several times and then harshly.

As for kids getting on here, I think if your child is on the internet, they've already seen things they don't understand. (Heck I'm 30 and seen things I don't understand and never wish to) I think people hold off too late on introducing sexuality and then get it all thrown at them all at once. A lot more kids realize they're different and get ridiculed for it. Much better to read it in a forum likely to be supportive than to stumble across people bullying over it. That's just my opinion though.

I'm only on page 8 of this (just got home) so I may post again if I feel as though I have something to add.

You can choose to remain abstinent and not have sex or date or have relationships, but that's different then asexuality.

DQ, I know a few people that have never got married or have been in a long term relationship and just decided not to get married. Nothing wrong with that.

Oli... So well written! Good for you for starting this thread and being who you are.

Right on the money there.
I have absolutely no sex drive, no desire to engage. I've tried to have one, but failed miserably. I just thought something was medically wrong with me and found out through my friend (licensed therapist with a specialization in sexuality. convenience at it's finest) that I was most likely asexual. And it makes sense and explains my life nicely.

And while sexuality is fluid and can change it won't deviate too far from where you're at. (should have clarified that)
