Personal Digest Saturday: April 24 – April 30

Life news this week:

Saturday I didn't have time for blogging--I just basically spent the whole day hanging out with Fen. They arrived around lunchtime and we hung out chatting for a while before going to the plant sale, where I got a dwarf powderpuff and a gardenia. Then we had some snacks, hung out, took walks, and enjoyed my backyard. After it started to get dark we ordered a pizza and watched c Read more of this blog post »

“Some people misinterpret aesthetic appreciation, romantic attraction, or sexual arousal as being sexual attraction, only to realize later that they are asexual.”
Julie Sondra Decker, The Invisible Orientation: An Introduction to Asexuality

“Asexual people are often told they will one day find "the one" and develop sexual feelings and the values society attaches to them. Many asexual folks have to hear this over and over and over again, which thrusts a perpetual image of immaturity upon them. Asexuality is not a signal that a person is necessarily stunted emotionally or physically, and feeling sexual attraction or inclination is not the line everyone must cross to be treated like an adult. Maturity should not be measured by willingness or inclination to seek out or accept sexual experiences. [p. 7]”
Julie Sondra Decker, The Invisible Orientation: An Introduction to Asexuality

“Asexuality awareness doesn’t become dangerous just because some people might mislabel themselves while they’re still figuring out their feelings. Lack of awareness is certainly dangerous to asexual people, though.”
Julie Sondra Decker, The Invisible Orientation: An Introduction to Asexuality
