“I know this is completely out of context, and basically, it’s a pretty aphobe and arophobe comment, but I just found it and had to laugh thinking of the “asexuals are not queer, aromantics are not queer” discourse: (“The only people who are queer are the people who don’t love anybody.”

Wanted to share that in case anyone else finds it funny. Best regards. 🙂

“A couple weeks back a mate and I went to the Big Gay Out, and did a promotion where you could get 144 condoms for $5. Signed the prescription, only just bothered to get ’em today.
I’m ace, with no plans of having sex in the near future, same with my mate. I just like the whole appeal of condoms. I guess. Not entirely sure. Anyways.
My question is, what can you do with 140-odd condoms? So far we’ve thought of blowing them up into balloon things, putting spaghetti/baked beans in ’em, and using the packets for an article of clothing to promote safe sex.”

“Sleeping pills and I don’t get along, so I read erotica or watch tv with a strong emphasis on sex as a sleeping aid.
Most of the friends who know this think that it’s either hilarious or weird.
Does anyone else do this?”

“I was talking to one of my friends, who reblogged this post on Tumblr:

[link to post above]

and she said, “I think the best response to ‘what’s in-between your legs’ is ‘well, it’s never going to be you!'” This made me die laughing, since I’m aro ace, and my friend knows it.”

“So I have appreciated the perspectives that the asexual community has exposed me to for many reasons. In particular I want to say that the humor this Facebook group provides is fantastic and really brightens my day. Thank you.”

“i thought i might share this amusing tidbit from my past. i think my first clue that i might be aro ace is how completely oblivious to romantic advances i am. i remember when i was in high school and this guy asked me if i wanted to see a move, and i was like ‘what movie?’ and he said ‘avatar,’ and i said ‘oh, cool. my mom wants to see that, can she come, too?’ i told my dad about it the other day and he just about lost it for a couple minutes lmao”

“Here’s a funny story:
For a school project we are supposed to create a personal budget tailored to what we hope to see out of our futures. As a reflection question it was “How would getting married change your budget, and would it be positive or negative?” As an aro/ace I didn’t even need to think. I deemed it as a negative to the budget and that I would much rather have a cat over another human to take care of. (not only that but I wouldn’t need to pay for a wedding and listening to the human whine all the time, cats>humans)”
