Asexuality is an orientation in which a person does not experience sexual attraction to any sex and/or gender. They do not feel an intrinsic desire to make sex a part of their relationships with other people. However they may still be able to experience other types of attraction, and desire relationships with other people.

Reblog and boost, as my sister is asexual and is almost never understood.
Are fedoras really that bad?
YES YES THEY ARE
I don’t really believe this mumbo jumbo
I mean it’s a goddamn hat.
The white rose, it symbolizes the unique beauty of all the women who wish not to be with a nice guy such as myse-
I wonder if this works with other kinds of hat…
Nothing ventured, nothing gained…
WHEEEN THE MOON HITS YOUR EYE LIKE A BIG PIZZA PIE THAT’S AMORREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
If laying down my life will spare the people of Camelot, then that is what I must do.
“To blindly trust government is to automatically vest it with excessive power. To distrust government is simply to trust humanity - to trust in the ability of average people to peacefully, productively coexist without some official policing their every move.” — James Bovard (1956-) American Author (via philosophicalconservatism)
I am fairly convinced that Red Pandas are not real.
THEY ARE LIKE CHILDREN WITH TAILS
1. Writers that unrealistically don’t kill anyone.
2. The right amount of death.

Like not once did she say “I want a prince to come and rescue me from my situation.”
She just wanted to look cute and turn the fuck up at the party.
i think people forget this when considering the Disney princesses as a whole
I have an idea for a social experiment.
I started using OKcupid a month or so back, and in order to see what other guys were doing, to see what I was “Up against”, I asked a female friend of mine to join up as well, and send me the sort of messages she received. Unsurprisingly, things got pretty creepy pretty quickly, and I felt bad for having convinced her to do it. So i gave her a picture of my face doing something odd, and told her she could send it to anyone who was particularly creepy.
It started out as a joke, but then she told me that she had sent it to at least 20 guys, and they had fucked right off immediately, either thinking she was a man, that she was “Spoken for”, or just because they didn’t expect it. It was both highly amusing and depressing that my face had become a sort of symbol of her ability to say “NO” and be listened to, but it gave me an idea.
I’m interested to see if other women who are also having these troubles on the internet, and are tired of dealing with them rationally and instead just want to fuck around, would be game to also send that pic of my face to unwanted admirers. My last name is Middleditch, so perhaps we can call it “Getting Ditched” (Or MiddleDitched, I’m not that fussed).
Anyway, here is the picture, I hope you consider this worthy of your time. And perhaps, if this somehow takes off, I’ll get to see more responses from unsuspecting Fellows.
All the best
Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes. YES. You are an excellent human being for thinking of this and being cool with your photo getting sent out to creeps and douchenozzles.
READERS! Consider sending the above photo the next time you get an awful OKC message, and pretty please tell me how it goes.
I love this, thank you for sharing!
These Vulcan family feuds are intense.

In a recent post I asked people what they wanted to see in the next Star Trek movie. Here is a compilation of their thoughts and my thoughts on what we hope happens. These are not in any particular order. Enjoy.
Adjust how Trek is treating women. Give them respect - visible designations of rank is imperative. They do not need permission from anyone to do their jobs. Focus on what they do, not what they look like - the “Barbie in space” look is impractical and absurd except as eye candy for male ticket buyers in the coveted demographic; nix that. Women should have names – it’s depressing to think Kirk’s mom and Spock’s mom no longer have names – they were never referred to by name. Never. Bring back Chapel and Rand and Gaila. Honor Majel. In short, portray women as people.
Either stop portraying Kirk as a misogynistic sexist wanker (one person’s brilliant description) or explain why he is and why it is inappropriate in the 23rd century. Sexism is a 21st century problem. If Kirk and Marcus lived in the here and now, Kirk would be in a whole lot of trouble for sexual harassment of an employee on the job. Men in positions of power should never, ever ogle their employees and make inappropriate comments. The honorable James T. Kirk is not a creeper, stalker or pervert. He is the original feminist and deserves that designation.
Celebrate diversity in all forms. We would like to see more women, people of color, people of various ages and people who have different genders and orientations. Trek has less diversity than my own workplace. We would like named LGBTQ characters who aren’t fridged.
Improve the relationship and interactions between the triumvirate. That dynamic of Kirk-Spock-McCoy made the original Trek strong and a lot of fun. Please give Karl Urban something to do! Show the crew developing friendships and relationships outside of the bridge, during recreation times instead of only interacting during emergencies. Show that they care about one another.
We would love to see a more cohesive character arc for each character. We are two movies in and we know nothing about McCoy, Uhura, Chekov and Sulu. We know very little about Scott. We would love to see more about how being an abandoned, abused child affects the adult Kirk. How does being a bullied child affect Spock? These are the motivations of the characters and we haven’t seen it explored.
We are tired of super-villians destroying Earth and San Francisco in particular and our guys swooping in to save the day. It’s overdone, ho hum – I can think of many examples – save the whales, stop the Borg, Nero and Khan. Explain the increased militarization of Star Trek and it’s deviation from being a humanitarian and peacekeeping armada (vs them saying that this is what the Federation (United Federation of Planets aka UFP) is – major mistake that was not caught; the Federation is a collection of races/species/planets working together). How has the destruction of the planet Vulcan affected the UFP?
What is going on with Spock Prime? What is the role of New Vulcan? Where is it? What role does Spock Prime have there? There is such a tragedy around Spock Prime – will he die alone or with Kirk in the next movie? We would like to see him used more than as a jump start.
Stop killing parents and women as cheap plot devices. George Kirk, Spock’s Mama (since she was not deemed worthy of having a name) and Admiral Marcus. Those are cheap short cuts to provoke emotional responses in our male main characters. How does losing a parent affect our characters? Where is Mama Kirk, who was also not important enough to name?
Spock being a volcanic emotional fucked up mess is absurd. Even in a world where his mother dies and his planet is destroyed and Kirk dies in front of him…. cut the guy a break already. We understand Zachary Quinto is a spectacular actor… give him something to do besides throw a fit. Spock stands for logic and reason and cold intelligence; it’s overkill. Spock Prime as a younger man was ashamed for being part human – why is there a difference in this Spock, since the changes did not occur until Nero destroyed Vulcan?
What separates Star Trek from other science fiction stories has always been its positive vision of the future. We been inundated with a whole bunch of dystopian movies and apocalyptic end of the world dramas for the past 20 years, but lately it’s been ramped up even more (i.e. The Hunger Games, Divergence, 2012, World War Z, even The Matrix movies). Star Trek has traditionally shown us a future where poverty, disease, racism, sexism etc have been eliminated or dealt with. We want that restored. Show us a future we would want to live in.
That’s the list. Paramount, please consider these elements! Thank you very much.
