It just boggles my mind that some people, including MRAs and PUAs or tumblrite xsexuals (wherein x = a or demi or whatever) devote so much time to being with a pretty lady or a handsome guy. It just seems so extreme (or, perhaps, so sextreme?) a desire for achievements that will pass away immediately after your death.

Not everyone does everything out of concern for their legacy. Sometimes it's just fun to do stuff or whatever.

I was watching star trek while trying to read that and I had to pause it because I can only handle one stream of mindless technical babble at a time. So from now on I'm going to read all the asexual posts in the voice of Geordi La Forge.

So apparently just talking to people about what you want is HARD so let's distill it all into soundbitey scripts because that's what sexual relationships are, right?

Quote from: Tumblr
So why don’t we start coming up with alternative, non-romantic gestures? Like, instead of giving someone a box of chocolates, you give them a fresh batch of cookies. Instead of dressing up fancy for a date, you dress up in ridiculous outfits or cosplay. Instead of taking them out to a candlelit dinner, you take them out to brunch with waffles and quiches. Instead of giving them a sappy love poem, you give them a poem…by Ogden Nash. (Look him up, he’s hilarious.)

The fuck? This is totally ignoring all the romantic relationships wherein people do that stuff all the damn time-- my parents go to brunch together. I bake cookies for my partner. Those are already neutral things to do with someone you generally care about.

It's worth reiterating that aromantic tumblr types apparently get all their ideas about what constitutes romance from sappy movies and tv commercials. Because they are like fifteen and never go outside, I assume.

Never underestimate the adults who expect life to play out according to a narrative.
