Uuuuugh, I feel sick after indulging a craving for gummy bears. That was a dumb idea. — I’m thinking it might be time to start switching back to mostly vegan food. I’m finding that, instead of an aversion to nut milk and tofu, I’m getting sick after eating things like hotdogs and eggs. Since our fridge and pantry are once again loaded with non-vegan food and we’re short on funds to go shopping, the shift back will be gradual.
Extra motive: my doctor says I’m gaining weight a bit too quickly for how far I am into pregnancy. With my previous kid, I gained a whopping 50 pounds, and only lost 20 of those pounds before getting pregnant again. I need to refocus on healthy eating if ever wanna be a healthy weight again! Not that I think curves look bad on me, but I remember feeling sooo much better just going about daily activities when I was 50 pounds lighter.
Q:Hey I actually am curious about your sexuality. I'm really not trying to be mean in any way but why not just say you don't like sex? Like being sex repulsed is okay! I don't mind and that's not my business! But it am curious as to why people say they're asexual... Cause that isn't a thing humans can be? Again, not trying to be rude but I see things from a scientific point and it's kinda something only plants can be. Like why not just say "yeah no sex"? Why have a label on everything?
Because I grew up feeling that I was broken and weird so finally having a label and community that fits me is a thing that I need. Because asexuality IS real, it’s the lack of sexual attraction and it IS a sexual orientation. Because it doesn’t matter how many times you say you aren’t “trying to be mean” you still are by saying my orientation doesn’t exist and is “only for plants” which is false. That is asexual REPRODUCTION, NOT asexuality.
And you are being rude. VERY rude. Because it is MY CHOICE to choose how I identify and *I* get to decide who I am and I am an asexual. You don’t get to chose that. I am sex-repulsed. I will never do sexual things. I have no libido. I DO NOT EXPERIENCE SEXUAL ATTRACTION- AKA I’M ASEXUAL.
My sexuality, my sexual orientation, is ASEXUAL. I say I am asexual because I AM ASEXUAL.
Please open up your mind to the fact that asexuals are real, asexuality in humans exists, it is not a hormonal problem, it is not a disease, it is just a lack of sexual attraction which is called asexuality.
And also, words can have different meanings in different contexts. So while plants have asexual reproduction, humans can have a sexuality being asexuality.
I want to add to Dusks arguement that may win over a few extra people, mainly those that base their ideals in science like this Anon. So genetics have the ability to influence Sexuality. There has been numerous studies showing how genetics influence the need to mate and how early it happens toward certain genders. This idea explains Hetro-, homo- and bi- sexualities. So we have to look at the idea of a modern mutation (possibly brought out since since survival of the fittest no longer applies) is a lack of the genetic code that causes this or even something that causes sex to be genetically repulsive. This mutation (which when involving genetic code is completely normal) would cause Asexuality making Asexuality just as real as anything else.
Oh and here is a link to a washingtonpost article that I used to confirm that sexuality is affected by genetics: here
