Are You Unassailable? - posted in Asexual Q&A: There is sometimes pressure in the asexual community to be a gold star asexual. That is, to have no quality about oneself that might allow some person to challenge our asexuality. The unassailable asexual is completely neurotypical and has never had any health issues, physical or mental. They are cis, indifferent, between the ages of twenty and forty, and sex-positive. They do not masturbate but have no history of any kinds of sexual…
New thread I posted in the AVEN forums. Respond there or here—this is truly a quest for information, and I’m not trying to be offensive or accusatory to anyone. Let me in and tell me what I can do to improve my own activism and visibility work!
No Physical Health Issues: Fail.
No Mental Health Issues: Fail.
Cisgendered: Pass, probably.
Indifferent: Eh, if it’s ‘not repulsed’, yes; if it’s ‘not enjoy’, fail.
Between 20 and 40: Fail.
(No) sexual problems: Pass.
No abuse: fail.
Conventionally attractive: no clue, probably pass.
Should there be one as well for having the ‘right’ sort of romantic orientation, whatever that is?
- Neurotypical: Depends on the definition. If your using it for autism only then pass. If your including ADD/ADHD (which some people do) then fail
- No Physical Health Issues: Fail. Asthma, Type One Diabetes, Migraines, Heart Murmur….
- No Mental Health Issues: Fail. Anxiety like woah, not officially diagnosed but it’s pretty obvious.
- Cisgendered: Pass
- Indifferent: Pass/Fail. Inrefrence to others having sex? Pass. If it in relation to me having sex? Fail
- Between Twenty and Forty: Pass
- Sex-Positive: Pass
- Nonlibidoist: Fail
- Sexual Problems: Pass
- No Abuse: Pass
- conventionally attractive: Uh? Pass? I’m not beautiful but I’m not unattractive either? Average I’d say?

Two CU students identifying as asexual explain what life is like outside of the hookup culture by Annie Melton
what is this “hookup culture” that everyone talks about I don’t believe it actually exists, just some diluted high school or geriatrics idea.
I get what the author mean with “hook up culture” but…
Yeah, maybe there isn’t a “hook up culture” since it’s a natural behavior for allosexuals since ever.
A “Hook-up culture” is one that encourages having casual sex focused on physical pleasure without the emotional attachment being necessary. Most f not all cultures world wide encourage sex after marriage and emotional bonding but many frown upon casual sexual encounters. when people talk about hook-up culture it is usually referencing Western late adolescent behavior and college behavior. Casual sex as acceptable behavior is a fairly recent phenomena.
Asexuality: Does not experience sexual attraction. Being asexual does not mean that you can not experience romantic attraction. It does not mean that you can’t have sex. It does not mean you can’t enjoy sex. It does not mean that you can’t appreciate the human form. It just means that you don’t experiance that “I really want to jump your bones” feelng.

awkwardfootwork asked: Hi! My altar is missing an athame or any blade. I just don't feel comfortable...I want my altar to be a place of sanctuary and somehow a blade 'kills' that feeling for me. Is my altar incomplete without it? xox cheers
Your altar is just that, your altar, and if anything makes you feel uncomfortable or out of place it is your right to change it.
a lot of people feel the need to make sure what they are doing is “the right way” or the way described in books or other media, when it doesn’t need to be.
your altar is not incomplete if it lacks something such as a blade or athame, in fact there are many witches/wiccans/pagans who prefer not to include a blade or athame in their altars, and this goes with anything on your altar, you put precisely what you feel you need and no one can tell you other wise!
and if you feel like you still want something in place of a blade or athame, something as simple as a small branch or wand works amazing, even then all you need is your own finger when it comes to directing energy the wands or blades just help with the direction and are even unneeded.
I hope you found this helpful.
Okay guys, for a while now I’ve sort of considered myself as being a wiccan, but now I’m not very sure. The texts I’ve read about it all seem to be conflicting and I can’t seem to get a straight answer.
I had read that it was a sort of singular religion in which you did what felt comfortable for…
It depends on the practitioner as with most pagan religions. You can be a solo practitioner of Wicca do what feels right or you could join a coven and worship with them in the ways that they have established and share their beliefs. the problem with using books as a recipe to religious practice is that what you get out of it depends on the person who wrote it. likely some of what you’ve read was written by someone who honestly believes there is only one correct path. many more people believe that there are many. just do what feels right.
Rhode Island’s librarians are taking on the outdated image of their profession as dowdy sticks-in-the-mud with an effort to showcase a kind of ink not usually associated with stacks of books: tattoos.
