OMG, Cede! We’re a domestic AU! I HAVE ALWAYS LOVED DOMESTIC AUS!!!
I like it. I like it a lot.
I definitely feel that equating sex with love is harmful on many levels, and not just to aromantics. When I was giving the sex talk to my daughter, one of the things I was very sure to say to her is that love has absolutely nothing to do with sex, and while they can be found together, there’s nothing wrong with finding them separately, either, as long as she’s comfortable with her choice and is making it of her own free will.
And yes, society’s insistence on equating the two has affected/damaged me. I feel no desire to form romantic attachments, and would almost go as far as to say I’m romance adverse, but because of the way I was raised, to think of the only good sex as sex in a committed relationship, I also have a hard time not feeling guilty enjoying sex outside of a commitment. Even though logically I know and accept there is absolutely nothing wrong with it. It’s a continual process, as I shed the chains society and the religion of my birth “gifted” me with.
I really don’t have any advice, except to be gentle with yourself. Remember that none of this was learned in a day, and we can’t unprogram ourselves from our brainwashing in a day, either. Just being able to accept and celebrate that you are aromantic is a huge step, and I send you light and love to surround you as you continue your journey.
Oh they were hella cute together! I love Malia. I am still a little puzzled how she lived the majority of her life as a coyote and doesn’t understand basic human mores, and yet somehow knows how to go clubbing and dance and how two girls grinding together will distract the masses.
In short I love Malia and the friendship she’s developing with Kira and I hate Jeff Davis.
Mercedelede and I are Queer Platonics and have chosen to live our lives together.
Well, you’ll have to ask Cede to get her opinion, but I think it’s going smashingly! I know we’ve been MIA from Tumblr - we’ve just been so damn busy doing things in real life! It’s been awesome having her here so we can actually do all the things we talked about!
It is, It isssssssss!
God I love them so much. I will never forgive the writers for mucking that up.
Sorry, no, as I don’t know you from Eve.
I am, I am. Real life has just been kicking my tail lately, too. Not in a bad way - everything is good - but I’ve just been very, very busy.
