why are people so afraid to google things? why come to someone’s inbox and ask a researchable question where you may have to wait hours, days, even weeks for a response when you can google it in less than 3 seconds? what are you afraid of? results?
How is asexuality a sexual orientation instead of just "I haven't met anyone I wanna fuck yet" (not implying you ever will, of course)? That's like when people insist atheism is a faith; it's not, it's the lack of one. So how is a lack of sexual attraction a kind of sexual attraction?
Several things. First have you heard of the null set/empty set? The null set is a set that is always in every group of subsets for a set, because it implies the lack of. Same way that Zero is a number. It is a placeholder that means emptiness or lack of. And please don’t say that asexuality is just “I haven’t met someone I want to have sex with yet”. For one, I am grey asexual, have had sex, enjoyed it, but I am not sexually attracted to anyone. Asexuality means a lack of sexual attraction. Asexuality is the empty set of sexuality. But, grey asexuality is like a function of sexuality, meaning that normally grey asexuality is the empty set of sexuality, but when certain things happen it is no longer empty and includes sexual attraction and whatnot.
I view atheism as an empty set as well, since it is the complete lack of religion, whereas some people without a concrete religion could still believe in something, atheism implies that the person believes in no higher beings or any of that stuff.
i’ve watched the trailer too many times already so here’s a thing i’ve noticed:
korra’s going to a lot of places this season (she’s definitely on some kind of journey) one of them being the swamp
and we all remember the deal with the swamp, right?
"In the swamp, we see visions of people we’ve lost, people we’ve loved, folks we think are gone. But the swamp tells us they’re not. We’re still connected to them. Time is an illusion and so is death.”
I agree with you about the Book of Life. I roll my eyes at het love triangles, but it's not a harmful enough cliche to prevent me from wanting to see the movie for a billion other reasons. I'm conflicted over Urbance, though. Have you heard of it? It's about and created almost entirely by black people, which is amazing, but apparently it's got that "in a world where everyone's homo, one hetero couple must go AGAINST THE ODDS~~" premise and apparently the villains are all nonbinary people?
The Urbance plotline is a lot more harmful than a cliche het love triangle, and there are other differences as well, like Book of Life is a major feature film while Urbance is just getting off the ground via crowd funding… But I dunno, it was something I really wanted to support, and now I feel gross about it. I know this was a tangent, but I thought I’d vent/get your opinion on it.
i got this ask a few hours ago and i was mulling over how i was going to answer, seeing as it was a tangled, complex topic. and then i…you know. went to the kickstarter page
i’m not sure where everyone is getting the “in a world where everyone’s homo, one hetero couple must blah blah blah” angle from. Gaetan mentioned that this idea existed in the original trailer released a couple years ago—if the concept still exists, i am not seeing where. it’s possible that they excised the idea
here is the plot summary of urbance
"In a post-modern city torn by street violence, sex is prohibited because of a deadly genetical virus. Men and women have grown apart, hating each other until two young rebels, disowned by their own gangs, are leading the fight to live their love freely."
In the crumbling inner city, sex kills. The urban landscape is split in two — men on one side, women on the other— opposing each other. COEVO seems to be the only hope: a government medical treatment developed to cure every single boy and girl except that those wearables haven’t produced the expected results yet…
Born among this lost generation of frustrated gangs, Kenzell and Lesya live each day as their last, defying anyone who stands in the way of their union. Like modern avatars of Romeo and Juliet, they will have to choose between love or their kind, Passion VS Reason, Deadly Eves VS Neo Blasterz… In their flamboyant relationship lies the premises of a revolution against the authorities, the vicious Mediators and their separatist laws. Rebels can change the world…
so, perhaps a focus on a het couple, a romeo and juliet thing…not the most original thing in the world, but not exactly a “pure het vs vile gays” story
from the kickstarter page’s faq
note the timestamp. it seems like the people behind Urbance are set on keeping a tight relationship with fans and want to address any issues (there’s some other questions along those lines, including topics such as race and objectification of lesbian relationships)
here’s what i want to ask: how did this notion of “evil gay overlords” spread so quickly over tumblr over the course of a few days with seemingly almost no one going over to the project’s kickstarter page to fact-check? why were you all so quick to believe one post that lacked visual proof?
did the fact the cast is mostly black have anything to do with any of the above questions?
how many stories with all-white used the angle of “our forbidden straight love” with nary a hackle being raised?
and lastly, and most worryingly to me: will the distortion of facts regarding Urbance ‘s story hurt the chances of the project getting funded?
“Before you say yes, get him angry. See him scared, see him wanting, see him sick. Stress changes a person. Find out if he drinks and if he does, get him drunk - you’ll learn more about his sober thoughts. Discover his addictions. See if he puts you in front of them. You can’t change people, baby girl. If they are made one way, it doesn’t just wear off. If you hate how he acts when he’s out of it now, you’re going to hate it much worse eight years down the road. You might love him to bits but it doesn’t change that some people just don’t fit.”—inkskinned, “My father’s recipe for the man I should marry” (via partygirlmeltdown)
