An asexual critique of sex positivity and enthusiastic consent 

While sex positivity can be good in some ways, it often erases ace people, those who don't want or enjoy normative sex, and people with sexual trauma.

It can come with a lot of pressure, either implicit or explicit, that people should be having sex or enjoying it, and that those who don't enjoy these activities and don't want to hear about them are not "open-minded" enough (or even worse, broken in some way).

NB backhanded validation 

Someone saw my avatar today and was like, "You look like a woman to me," and the other person in the call was like, "No you don’t."And I’m like, that's the validation I’m looking for!!!

You can be disabled. You can be Asexual. You can be disabled and Asexual. We can be disabled and Asexual and neither group can throw us out. Leave the throwing out to the heteronormitive able-bodiedHappy Ace Week!

Ace Week 

AZE journal is a very cool online journal about ace, aro, and agender things with all kinds of art an writing by aces, aro's and agender folk. I think they are amazing at showing different perspectives and amplifying the voices of BIPOC aces, I know the creator and lead editor of AZE (Michael Paramo) also thinks this is really important. The recently did a volume on masculinity and coming up is an issue centering disability.

Came to the realization today that the only reason I have Facebook is to make sure nobody inpersonates me on Facebook.

thinking about the time in 6th grade when my teacher was lecturing me on using "he/him" and "man" as default for people in general when writing properly (as opposed to singular they or "his or her"). So, cheeky fuck that I was, the next time i had a written assignment I wrote something like "A child going through puberty may find his voice deepening or breasts growing out. He may have his first period or increased erections..."

I do wonder if our collective disregard for Twitter/FB has limited our thoughts around message display on the Fediverse.

I wouldn't mind an algorithm sorting my display, so long as:

a) I could understand it
b) I could control it
c) I could disable it

I do this with my email all the time through "sort". I sort by date, by sender, by thread, I search by topic, etc.

I'd have no problem if *my own* AP instance learned about me and sorted based on criteria it thought I'd like.

It appears that Clubhouse has made spacial audio available to wireless headsets… That’s a bit trippy when I wasn’t ready for it.

I don’t know what my product is or who my target audience will be, but I know one thing: My ad will have Muppets!

I ripped the tape off their mouth, eager to learn the combo to the safe that held the treasure to end all treasures. They Sang “Never gonaa give you up, never gonna let you down…” They are still in the highest room of the tallest tower to this day.

Registered for the registration line today. If it’s accessible, it will solve a problem I’ve had since 2015 or so: On which platform do I message you?

I got some blood drawn earlier this morning, and the CNA doing it was very chatty. She got onto the topic of Kanye changing his name, and I said that having too much money and not enough people to tell you "no" was a recipe for whatever sort of trip he's on.

Then she said "I wish I had so much money that nobody would tell me no," paused and said in a low, intense voice "…id get a tail"

With the Facebook name change, I predict we will also see customer service reps names be replaced with six-digit ID numbers that start with 6. I’m probably the only one who knows what I’m talking about, but I told you so.

Sorry I missed your big life announcement and failed to offer the appropriate emotional response. It’s just that by the time I got done listening to my screen reader read your name with all the emoji and modifiers, I forgot why I was here.
