Haha. I avoided this ep for a while since I'm ace myself and I wasn't familiar with any asexual community with such um... eccentric people. Lo and behold: there are sad, angry outliers in every group.
So many things about some of these people are perplexing to me. The 'worst' part about being ace, in my experience, is just dealing with the occasional person who doesn't get it or thinks they know better than me about myself, like I haven't met the right guy or that I'll change. But we all (especially women) deal with different flavors of that crap. Is being hit on at the pub more annoying because I'm asexual? No, its exactly the same damn brand of annoying as it is for everyone else.
I empathize a bit with the tumblr person rambling about people prioritizing romantic-sexual relationships over others, but to take it to such an embittered, vehement level... and they're probably what, like, 17 right? They have somehow absorbed the bitterness of every single asexual person and attached political rhetoric to it. I'm barely into my 20s and I do dread when it comes time for people in my age group to sequester themselves off with their spouses and pop out babies. It stings when someone you spent time with takes their life in a direction that not only does not include you as much as it did, but that you're indifferent towards on the whole. Because it's true, they are going to value that family unit in a different way than they do their friends. On the other hand, that's what most people do, and we all have the ability to befriend new or different people. It's not a great injustice, it's people living a different lifestyle.
Such ramble, very rant, wow.
Hold on. Most people are wired to want to have sex, I should be offended. I have 20 tumblr rants to draft.
