I need Ema offering Gumshoe a Snackoo. In a non-throwing them at him way.
I had already headcanoned them as buddies before even knowing anything about the Rise from the Ashes case and now I headcanon extra hard
sets up gumshoe and phoenix charity fund
the amount of angry guys ranting about “you’re only segregating yourself” I see before noteblocker kicks in for that stupid runaway typo post is reaching levels of ridiculousness I didn’t even know existed
the funniest ones are those accusing me specifically of being a ~self-segregation ringleader~ for making a typo and posting about it
rock on, dudebros
I’m not sure if you were trying to inform me of something you thought I didn’t realize, or if you just wanted to talk…?
Let me put your concerns to rest. Asexual people like me are well aware of the existence of people like you…because we get mistaken for being like you all the time. I can’t tell you how many times people have thought I was “saving myself for marriage.” In fact, that’s one of the most common ways that asexual people’s identities get erased and delegitimized. There is no risk of people like you getting forgotten or mistaken for asexual; quite the reverse is true!
Also, this is very important for you to know: Asexuality has nothing to do with religion, or morals, or lifestyle choices. Asexual people do not choose to be asexual, and asexuality has no bearing on our attitude toward dating and sex. You’d be surprised at how many asexual people enjoy reading or watching porn, go on dates, and even enjoy premarital sex.
You are celibate, and you are talking about a lifestyle and set of moral values you believe in. That’s a perfectly good choice, and I’m glad that it works for you. But asexuality is a sexual orientation, not a choice, not a lifestyle, and not a set of moral values. Some asexual people share your lifestyle and values, but most of us do not.
