(Super cool things: I’m gonna be a panelist at an asexuality conference in a few weeks!!)

But you use a homophobic slur to describe yourself. I’m utterly disgusted and ashamed to have you represent me. It’s people like YOU who ignite Tumblr ‘aphobia’ with your homophobic actions and forced inclusion. People like YOU are the reason young asexuals are told to kill themselves on this site, and why the ‘ace positivity’ tag is constantly flooded with posts mocking asexuals.

You are vile.

Happy Atheist

To clarify, the other poster is called 'officalqueer'. Where I'm from, queer is still seen as a slur, though I understand it has been largely reclaimed over in the States.

The Barron here needs to cool their jets and understand that the world doesn't revolve around their life experience.

Hasn't "queer" been pretty much completely reclaimed by now? It's not even like the N-word, where there's a race-based double standard regarding whether or not you can use it - "queer" has long since ceased to be offensive. This is just your typical tumblrina exploding over trivial things while doing nothing to oppose the orange-skinned elephant in the room - said room, as of tomorrow, being the Oval Office.

Between "queer" still being fought over, "crazy" getting claimed as offensive (I wish I was joking), and people inserting Trump attacks into places with no possible reason for them, it's amazing we get day-to-day life done...

Comes across like someone complaining about the cruelty of livestock breeding while they're clubbing baby seals.

Insult to Rocks

I still don't feel comfortable calling people queer, but I also don't particularly care what other people call themselves. Neither should special snowflake over here.

Another Tumblr aphobe stuck in the '90's.

On the one hand, you don't have to have an interest in sex, sure, okay but on the other hand... what could you possibly talk about at an asexuality conference? How is it that there's that much to discuss?

@Jamaican Castle
To be fair, some theists say the same about atheist events. I know one issue that I hear about is erasure in a manner similar to bisexual erasure. People either forgetting about them or, in some cases, rather insultingly telling them that they don't exist. Telling them that they "just haven't found the right one yet" or even straight-up accusing them of lying. Which we also hear some theists say about atheists.
