people who tell me “i wish i were asexual” to try and make me feel better baffle me like i know they don’t grasp the entirety of what that one little sentence means but let me break it down for you
by saying “i wish i were asexual” you are saying
- i wish i felt out of place during my formative years when everyone was developing crushes on people and i wasn’t
- i wish i had to pretend to like the opposite gender but feel wrong about it constantly
- i wish i could feel alienated by almost every form of media based on the importance placed on sex
- i wish i could be a walking disappointment to all the people i’d be perfect for if i weren’t asexual
- i wish i could be considered a medical condition rather than a sexuality
- i wish i could be mocked and joked about by both heterosexual and homosexual people
- i wish i could spend my time crying myself to sleep over why i dont JUST LIKE THEM IT WOULD BE SO EASY TO JUST LIKE THEM WHY AM I NOT ATTRACTED TO THEM WHY
- i wish i could force myself into dangerous situations on the basis that ‘once i try it i’ll like it’ and wind up getting taken advantage of
- i wish that i were a disappointment to my parents because they believe the epitome of happiness is finding a significant other and don’t understand how anyone couldn’t want that
- i wish i could be considered too boring to be represented in most forms of media
- i wish to be the “honorable mention” in all my friend’s lives and never feel as if i am truly important to anyone
- i wish i could give a practical fucking lecture on what asexuality means any time i tell someone im asexual because nobody knows what it means and/or doesn’t believe me
- i wish my issues could be ignored by almost everyone constantly because they are not important enough
yeah okay that’s not everything but that’s a good short break down of what you are saying when you say “i wish i were asexual”
you are not saying “i wish i didnt have to deal with dating” or “i wish i didn’t get horny”
that is not what you are saying
please understand the difference and NEVER say you wish you were asexual to an asexual person you are undermining everything we go through every day and it is NOT supportive at all it is belittling at best and patronizing at worst.
that’s some free knowledge from me to you
- I wish I were rejected by my partners because I lack their enthusiasm for sex, and even if I’m willing to participate, they feel like they’re ‘taking advantage of’ me and are repulsed by the situation

Best Pope story yet?
Pope Francis has been sneaking out of the Vatican at night to serve the homeless.
The Pope for people who don’t like popes strikes again.
HE WAS ALSO A BOUNCER AT A NIGHTCLUB
Pope Francis has also shed the trappings of wealth that generally accompany his position (golden cape, ornate throne) in favor of white threads and a simple wooden chair. He’s also the first Pope to wash a woman’s feet, insisting that it’s what Jesus Christ would have done. Even if you’re not religious you can appreciate that this is a genuinely good man, and a wonderful leader of the Catholic Church.
A YMCA in St. Paul, Minnesota is now offering swim practice once a week to the community’s Muslim Somali girls, offering the girls a safe environment to learn how to swim while accounting for their concerns about modesty.
While Minnesota’s newspaper noted that this is an important and much-needed program for the community, Fox News saw the story as an opportunity to broadcast their signature brand of fearmongering Islamophobia.
Fox’s Heather Nauert:
Well the minority becoming the majority at one community pool.
Sharia law is now changing everything.
A YMCA in Minneapolis-St. Paul is starting a swim group for Muslim girls but special considerations have to be made to keep with their religious beliefs. Now this means during the one-hour class, the pool is being shut down, the men’s locker room is being locked, and female lifeguards are being brought in. Similar classes are now starting at towns across the Midwest. We’ll keep watching this story for you.

double standards disgust me. when a guy sleeps with a ton of women he’s a stud but when a girl sleeps with a ton of women she’s a lesbian
That was not the way I expected that sentence to end.
This scene was improvised, so ludacris’ reaction is genuine and dwayne didn’t have a line after tyrese said his.
