people grossly misinterpreting your favorite character
I’m actually neutral / indifferent when it comes to sex itself. However, when we talk about romance I am very aversive to romance. That doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy reading/watching romantic stories unfold, but that romantic feelings and actions directed at me make me very uncomfortable.
Let’s clear up some terminology issues that I see a lot:
- Asexuality is a sexual orientation, defined by not feeling sexual attraction to other people. It’s not a choice. Celibacy is a behavior pattern, defined by not having sex, and it is a choice.
- A sex-repulsed or sex-averse person finds some or all sex-related things unappealing, or even unpleasant, and might not want to participate in them. Being sex-repulsed is usually not a choice. It is not related to how a person believes other people should behave sexually.
- Sex-negativity and sex-positivity are attitudes or ideas about how people in general should behave sexually. It is also possible to be neither sex-positive nor sex-negative.
- Asexuality, celibacy and sex-repulsion are things that reflect someone’s private experiences of sexuality, and they do not imply anything about how that person believes other people should behave. A person with any or all of these traits could be sex-negative, sex-positive or neither.
- It is possible to support sexual agency and freedom for other people without being sex-positive. Some people do this because they have qualms with parts of the sex-positive movement. So a person who doesn’t call themself sex-positive isn’t necessarily sex-negative.
Also, bonus words!
- Sex-indifferent means not repulsed by or averse to sexual things, whereas sex-neutral is more often used to mean someone who is neither sex-negative nor sex-positive.
- Some people are sex-repulsed in some ways but sex-indifferent in other ways.
- I don’t know of a common word for “likes having sex” but I use “sex-enjoying” for that. (I figure it’s useful to distinguish between asexual people who like having sex versus those who just don’t mind it.)
we have all read fanfiction that we shouldn’t have
Adapt to this
LET ME JUST POINT OUT THE VARIOUS FLAWS OF LOGIC HERE. FIRST OF ALL DARWINS POWER IS TO LITERALLY ADAPT TO ANYTHING IN THE EFFING UNIVERSE. HIS POWERS DEEMED IT TOO DANGEROUS TO FIGHT THE HULK AND TELEPORTED HIM TO ANOTHER COUNTRY. HE ONCE BECAME PURE COSMIC EFFING ENERGY AND SHORTLY AFTER REMATERIALIZED AS A HUMAN BEING TO PREVENT HIS DEATH. DARWIN IS LITERALLY INEFFINGVINCIBLE. AND YOU MEAN TO TELL ME THAT A PATHETIC BALL OF KINETIC ENERGY FROM SEBASTIAN SHAW MERKS HIM?!?!?! THEY OBVIOUSLY ARE OUT TO KILL THE BLACK MAN IN THE PLOT AND LITERALLY WROTE THIS SCENE WITH NO REGARDS TO DARWINS POWERS WHATSOEVER AND ITS FRUSTRATING THAT THEY WOULD GO OUT OF THEIR WAY TO KILL HIM OFF LIKE THAT
I’m saying. Even in sci fi we ain’t safe
in my headcanon darwin literally became a being of energy and ascended to another plain of existence so he doesn’t have to deal with anymore of this white nonsense
Even in Scifi? We not safe in real life.
thank you I’ve been saying this for the longest!!!!! He is a damn omega level mutant, meaning in the movie he would be a class 5! Dude even adapted into a God and became the God of Death! Dude was college educated in the comics and they made him a taxi driver…like Black folks weren’t educated in the 70’s. And they didn’t even acknowledge that he was an Afro Latino…his name is Armando Munoz, he’s one of the few Afro latino superheros and they did him so dirty.
A movie that’s a metaphor for prejudice/racism/etc did the black guy dirty.
What men don’t understand is that women are FIERCELY PROTECTIVE of underage girls because we remember when we were young and some adult man made us uncomfortable or manipulated us or was inappropriate with us and we were powerless.

Battle For The Sun
Fallen angels in the night
And everyone is barred from Heaven
Just one more hit to make it right
But everyone turns into seven
(...) You can run but you can't hide
Because no one here gets out alive
Find a friend in whom you can confide
Julien, you're a slow motion suicide
We New Yorkers LOVE our frozen beverages, especially in the winter. It’s cold out? Let’s get some ice cream! What do you want with your burger? A milkshake! It’s 10pm, 15 degrees, and it’s the middle of December, what do you want? LET’S GET ICE CREAM AND SIT OUT IN THE SNOW AND EAT IT.
New Yorkers, man.

PACIFIC RIM CUT SCENES WITH TOPLESS IDRIS ELBA?? YOU FUCKING MONSTERS.
I only vaguely know what Pacific Rim is, but I know exactly what a great tragedy this is
#no no no #this is so important #because Raleigh has those scars too #they’re the only two pilots to ever ride a Jeager solo #and doing to burned the circuitry of their suits onto their skin #I think that’s part of mako’s staring at Raleigh shirtless #like part was obvs he’s hot as hell #but he’s the only one aside from her father to pilot a Jeager solo #and she must know about Stacker’s scars #so she’d be curious about Raleigh’s #sorry I’m having a lot of feelings right now
