Not the dead, that's for sure.

Or you know, asexual people...

Valid point. Though I seriously question whether people are truly asexual or simply have a hormone imbalance or something else wired "wrong". It seems scientists are unconvinced still too.

It's pretty common for women to experience very low libidos. Most of them could do without sex for years, if not indefinitely, without giving it much thought. Though with the right stimulation they come alive again. Apparently "asexuality" is much more common in women. Which I think you could argue is a correlation, but certainly I think researchers need to spend more time on it.

Anyway, I'm not trying to offend you. If you want to identify as asexual that's fine with me. It doesn't matter to me one way or another. Though if you are missing out on aspects of life due to a treatable condition I think it's unfortunate to have that overlooked.

I think it can also be argued that the terminology is misleading. It's not as though your physiology is capable of asexual reproduction. And likely your body is still capable of sexual reproduction, even if you lack an interest in doing so. You're not actual "asexual" in the original sense. Rather, it seems people who identify as asexual lack an identifiable libido. If they've tried every known treatment to increase their libido and had no effect then fair enough. But if it's just an excuse to be left alone being "different" I don't know that it's necessarily healthy to encourage that.

Meh. To each their own.

I think my therapist is more qualified to talk on this than you and for the last six months that has been a critical component of our discussions. Everything you said is wrong.

Asexual does not mean you don't have a libido. Sexual desire, sexual attraction, libido are all very different things. You can be asexual have a high libido, for example. When I was younger that was the case. (It was miserable.) The qualifier for asexual is generally not being sexually attracted to others.

My hormones are fine. I have my estrogen and testosterone levels checked frequently, you know, because I'm transitioning and all that. Within a few months they'll be in the normal cis-gender woman's ranges which will be great for me. But have zero affect on my sexuality.

I'm sex-repulsed asexual; I find sex disgusting and do not feel sexual attraction. The most rewarding intimate relationships I've had did not involve sex. The worst intimate relationships I've had involved me being shamed or otherwise coerced into something /I did not want/--sex.

I'd suggest reading "The Invisible Orientation."

This kind messes with Edgar's idea that homosexuality is lust because I don't feel lust and don't like sex but whatever. :) (I'm panromantic asexual, for reference--I'm romantically attracted to others regardless of gender but have zero interest in sex).

Sorry for all the edits, I'm sick (oOoOoooooOOOOOo hopefully not Corona) and am super tired, having a splitting headache, and just want to sleep.

I'd suggest not talking about things you're clueless on.

What a sheltered existence that must be. If you don't talk about ideas how do you expect them to spread?

Asexual does not mean you don't have a libido. Sexual desire, sexual attraction, libido are all very different things. You can be asexxual have a high libido, for example.

Hmmm, that's interesting. Though Google's definition for libido is "sexual desire". :-X Wikipedia's first paragraph appears to indicate the same. Is it laborious to define them each?

I'd suggest reading "The Invisible Orientation."

I wish I could read fast enough to do so. Though just the summary was provocative.

I really think the name is what sabotages the idea. It's a misleading name. It says one thing, and it means another. That's a bad name.

LennyLen: The hard sciences don't disagree about what a unique human life is.

Bam: Just wanting fun and ignoring the consequences is not something responsible people do. People should be using multiple forms of birth control SIMULTANEOUSLY. The morning after pill and similar pre-pregnancy options exist, and I don't begrudge anyone their use. Abortion does more than emotional trauma, people have died from complications during abortion, and abortions have been seen to cause other health problems. I don't make religious arguments. Human fetuses are human lives by secular, scientific standards. Whether human lives have value is a philosophical debate, but whether a life is a life literally is not a philosophical debate. And that was quite bigoted of you to exclude asexual people. So lastly: Fuck you, you amoral clump of cells. I don't appreciate your abhorrent opinions on life and death, but I'm not inhuman enough to say you have no value. You have value to somebody.

Aw, c'mon, we're just getting started!

“Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded — here and there, now and then — are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty. This is known as "bad luck.”

Better to burn out than to fade away! Heyaaa!

Seriously, the 4400 post thread locked by Bob? Allegro would end for sure.

EDIT
Cmon, we're only half way to 9000! Cmon, it'll be epic!

The worst thing to do would be to lock AT 9000 :(

Let this f​​u​c​k​e​r get over 9000 or shut the site down >:(

Perhaps we should. XKCD's "Time" thread reached well over 2668 pages when it crashed the server.

Agreed! We'll go out in a blaze of glory! It's settled then! When this thread breaks the server, we'll know it's time to get a haircut and get a real job like our Big Brother Bob.

March 23st will be the 2rd anniversary of ItsyRealm's development.

If it weren't for Corona, I'd be making lemon cupcakes w/ purple frosting (you know, because ItsyRealm's logo is yellow/purple) this weekend and share them with friends & coworkers to celebrate on Monday. >:( Angry sounds.

If it doesn't resolve the issue, we'll evaluate whether the latest round of anti-speculative-execution patches we've had to apply could somehow be responsible. (The performance impact of this fix is estimated to be just a couple of percent, but a banana on a football field isn't even that much and yet woe unto the quarterback who steps on it.)
