This is a podcast which, occasionally, deals with some super gross things, so it might not be the sort of thing you'd show your parents and/or grandparents (unless they're cool parents and/or grandparents). However, some people we meet in our daily lives might be more internet-savvy, or jaded, or whatever adjective might conceivably prepare somebody for the possibility of dickbugs. This can lead to stories
My story comes from back when I was in undergrad, I think senior year. There was this girl I ran into occasionally, whom I'd chatted with her a few times in the hall, and with whom I shared a couple friends. One day, she was sitting alone in the cafeteria at lunch, and I asked if I could join her, and we hit it off. We were into a lot of the same kind of movies and she started talking about Silent Hill, and it was all a good time, so I asked her out for coffee. That day, we ended up on the topic of podcasts, and as she'd talked about weird stuff she'd found on reddit or whatever, I decided that F-Plus might be in her wheelhouse. I rattled off a few topics about episodes I'd listened to recently, Robot-Dragon micronations, Dolphin/Bigfoot enthusiasts, and Asexuals. The date went fine
, but it was a little awkward, which I figured was basically standard first-date nervousness.
So, later that night, curiosity got the better of me, and I decided to look her up on facebook. The first thing that popped up wasn't actually her personal page, but the page for her artwork. That led me to her deviantart page (!)
, which led me to her tumblr account (!!!)
which was dedicated to an anime which was apparently about a 13-year-old boy having sex with his ancient demon butler !!!!!!!!! I have since been told by people that the anime in question isn't actually about this, but all I had to go by at the time was this lady's fanart
, complete with a long post about why a 13-year-old having sex with a demon butler isn't creepy, because he's extremely mature for his age!
Also, the punchline to this is, obviously, that she was asexual. And she made a loooooong post on her tumblr about me, and how there was a 'radio show' I listened to where people 'called in' to make fun of asexuals, and how she bravely stepped in to defend the integrity of asexuals everywhere against my insults. To be perfectly honest, I do feel bad about that whole thing, and wish I hadn't made that particular faux pas (I hate to make anyone feel like something the cat dragged in), though that's slighty mitigated by all the other stuff.
So, does anybody else have any good F-Plus introduction stories?
