For example, relative to heterosexuals, and even relative to homosexuals and bisexuals, humans expressed more negative attitudes toward asexuals and desired less contact with them. Moreover, of all the sexual minority groups studied, asexuals were the most dehumanized! Asexuals were dehumanized not only mechanistically, but as well animalistically. They were seen as relatively cold, emotionless and unrestrained, but as well as impulsive and less sophisticated. Surprised? I'm not, conclusions just showed what I always knew: most of humanity is simply lack of understanding.
If someone claims to be asexual, that means that this person is asexual and all questions should be over. It does not mean that person did not find the right partner or the sex was not good enough. You do not need to have sex with marguerites to be sure that You are not attracted to flowers (or do You?), so why another person should try to have sex if feels no necessity?
Asexuality also needs to be included in queer theory because it challenges the notion of biological essentialism. It namely challenges the essentialist notion that every human being has a need for “reproductive” sex or rather, heterosexual sex, and that every person is “made” that way. Asexuals challenge this notion in the same way lesbians and gay people do. Asexuality questions whether sex should even be viewed in society as something special, whether it should be seen as normative and the only way people can relate. By questioning the very essentialness of sex, asexuality dismantles the idea of a “normative” sexuality or sense of sexual expression and opens the world to a possibility where all forms of sexual expression or lack of sexual expression are accepted because there is no template for “normal” sexual expression. It “distorts debates about whether gays and lesbians are ‘born’ or ‘choose’ their identity” because it deconstructs “the underlying assumption that people have sexual inclinations of some sort; second, that these inclinations persist throughout the lifespan; third, that identity is stable; and last, that sexual practices can form identities” Fahs
"Sex is. There is nothing more to be done about it. Sex builds no roads, writes no novels and sex certainly gives no meaning to anything in life but itself." Gore Vidal
I'm kind of lucky that I met so many bisexual, androgynous and transgender people in my life. I'm very lucky that when I was young I had a possibility to spend my time with my queer friends instead of mainstream. I'm kind of lucky that I never had to question other people's sexuality and never doubt the genders they introduced themselves.
I'm going to Christopher Street Day (CSD) on Saturday (that was created in memory of the gay uprising in New York’s Christopher Street in 1969). And so much looking forward to that!
Many people told me that there is nothing to improve for homosexual people's rights in Germany. But they forget that there are a lot of others people who are neither homosexual neither heterosexual. There are not only monosexual people in this world. There are not only two genders.
way to go till EVERYONE will be able to live their own lives without being judged, threatened and abused.
Gender is more or less optional. . .
And love should be about LOVE, not GENDER!
Perhaps I just like to disagree with society.
