Disability & Metaphorical Asexuality

I refer not to literal asexuality in the sense of being an asexual and I don’t refer to not having sex in the literal sense. I have written about incels before on this blog and their etiology is not the lack of sex but their being adults in an adult culture with an adolscent-style leagueContinue reading “Disability & Metaphorical Asexuality”

Religion & Romance

In the imaginations of many, religion is the enemy of romance since the climax of romance is literal climaxing for most of them. For those who have religion, religion is not a constituent in the emotions of their affections. Yet, romance, to me, is impossible in the positivist, materialist, and secular universe. Religion is manyContinue reading “Religion & Romance”

Asexuality & Innocence

Perhaps, unsurprisingly, the chief characteristic of asexuals is innocence. I think to the vintage sex ed videos from the 1950s and 60s where a mature narrator starts talking about “changes” during puberty and it is there where the great divorce happens because the difference between an asexual and sexual worldview is one of philosophical, ideological,Continue reading “Asexuality & Innocence”

Flirting on the Spectrum

My approach to flirting is… I don’t, I just talk to people near me about whatever I think will interest them enough to talk to me. The world of romance, sex, and dating is something adults who adult do and getting anywhere close to it in conversation elicits a nervousness in me that the otherContinue reading “Flirting on the Spectrum”

Foucault and Asexuality

I thoroughly dislike Foucault but there are elements of his philosophy that I do subscribe to. This article is going to focus on his ideas on the social construction of sexual orientation. Now, sexual orientation is not socially constructed. The categories of hetero, homo, an a sexual are social constructs but not the orientations, themselves.Continue reading “Foucault and Asexuality”

Boundaries in a Wasteland

People with disabilities often don’t live in the metaphhorical troposphere. That is the world of dating, drama, gossip, parties, substance use, and, generally, the sweaty, dark, and blackllit world adults are stereotyped as living in. For many, it is a world of long periods of silence broken by the occasional oasis of a platonic coffeeContinue reading “Boundaries in a Wasteland”

Gender Borderlands: The Frontier of the Cis and Straight

In the realm of gender studies there is a glaring omission, that of the frontiers. I am a cis, straight, male and I am a heteroromantic asexual tomgirl. I fall into a macro category that would suggest that I’m something that I’m not. That I am a man in the masculine sense of that term.Continue reading “Gender Borderlands: The Frontier of the Cis and Straight”

Villian Without a Reason: Outgroup Bias and Autistic Life

Earlier on this blog, I’ve written about how being autistic can lead to misunderstandings and how others can form inaccurate moral judgments based on those. I more than welcome any new reader to browse my website and also share any content they find worthy of sharing. Yet, for this article, I will expound upon theContinue reading “Villian Without a Reason: Outgroup Bias and Autistic Life”

The Politics of Moral Purity: How Political Moral Purity Leads to Postmodernist Approachs to Truth

A lot has been said about how authorities coddle Gen Z and Millennials and how this generation has not learned how to tolerate the mildest forms of being offended and being made uncomfortable. I would agree, in part, but the issue is not so much that the adults taught them that they were special andContinue reading “The Politics of Moral Purity: How Political Moral Purity Leads to Postmodernist Approachs to Truth”

How to Represent Asexuality in the Media

According to many surveys the answer to that is around 1% but those surveys are probably worded incorrectly to ascertain an accurate figure since it most likely measures what are known as hard asexuals. Asexuals who lack any attraction whatsoever. If the heteroromantic, homoromantic, and biromantic asexuals were taken into account, and you include peopleContinue reading “How to Represent Asexuality in the Media”
