asexuality doesn’t have anything to do with libido. libido is just an urge like sneezing or an itch it doesn’t have a direction. you aren’t sexually attracted to anyone.
you’re still asexual.
fluctuations in libido can come from fluctuating hormones (for example the menstruation cycle), or maybe with out any obvious reasons.
I don’t know how long it lasts. sometimes it’s a fleeting moment or maybe an hour or maybe a few days. that fluctuates as well.
Did i just read something rational on Tumblr. Doesn’t this violate some law of nature?
I’ve become less and less surprised that people are so hateful on tumblr because I am now acknowledging that tumblr is a form of social media for the youth. An estimated 30-40 percent of us are less than 25 years old (at least as of a 3 month old Tumblr statistic), and this means to me that there are so many of us who still have so much left in us to grow. To learn. To feel.
Many of us have not yet known the kind embrace from a stranger, and because of that we’ve vented out our frustrations on this website. Collectively, we have known the same experience of pain, and can relate to one another.
I plead that you do not let your heart grow full of anger. Let it be cautious, but not unwilling to be open to what the world may have in store for you, good or bad. Let knowledge flow through, let reasoning and compassion fill you. And if you cannot do that, at the least do not let ignorance cloud you.
Reading posts like this always reminds me of this quote:
Yes. I do support cis people. Just in the same way that I would support anyone else. If you are born cis, you cannot help that fact. You aren’t born into hatred. Being cis isn’t wrong. At all.
Have I been oppressed by cishet individuals? Absolutely. I’ve had the shit beat out of me all through high school because of my sexuality. I’ve been beaten, abused, held down, denied employment, and raped for who I am. By cisgendered, heterosexual people. But that doesn’t change the fact that my father is cis. My mother is, too. My friends are. My classmates. My roommate. My girlfriend, for fuck’s sake, is cis.
Just because I have been wronged by some, does not give me the right to hate all. I hate some. Not, by any means, all.
I hate those that have wronged me as individuals. As specific people, who have done specific wrong to me. My rapist was cisgendered. But, so is my eight-year-old niece.
In short, Anon, yes. I absolutely support cis persons. Why? Because being born with uncontrollable traits is not grounds for hatred, under any circumstances.
Two of the three boys that beat the shit out of me in high school, consistently, were black. Does that give me the right to hate all black men? Absolutely not. Do you see where I’m going with this, Anon?
No matter the circumstances, hating an entire group of people based on immutable traits is wrong. When you do harbor these prejudices, you are no better than those you claim to be fighting.
Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place.
