The American public’s reaction to the Ebola virus outbreak that’s killed over 4,000 people has moved from concern to outright xenophobia
Call it “Ebola racism.” With the death of Liberian Thomas E.Duncan at a Dallas hospital last week and news that two nurses who treated him have contracted the deadly illness, increasingly paranoid Americans are treating immigrants and visitors from Ebola-ravaged countries like Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone like lepers.
Fuck my life
tbh asexual/aromantic representation is super fucking important because i didnt know what aromantacy was until about six months ago and im 18, almost 19 years old. i thought something was so fucking wrong with me. i forced myself into romantic relationships and lied to the people i cared about just to try and fix myself and ended up hurting them and ruining a lot of friendships in the process. if you dont think ace/aro representation is important then i dont have time for you.

i had this really wild breakthrough about my asexuality last night and i’m posting it in case it helps anybody?
last night i realized that, as a kid, i believed that “finding someone attractive” and “being attracted to someone” were THE EXACT SAME EXPERIENCE. and they’re not, they’re absolutely not! you can find people attractive but not want them!
but as a kid i just heard all my friends saying, “wow he’s so cute i want to marry him!” so i internalized that as, “oh, i’m in love with every boy i find attractive.” i completely misunderstood the point, and that’s how i could be comfortable in my heterosexuality for so long—i thought i was doing it like everyone else was, but i absolutely wasn’t. it was only in high school that my ~~crushes really stopped, and i’ve only recently begun to understand myself through an asexual lens.
so if ur sittin here like “maybe i’m ace but shouldn’t i have known this earlier???” maybe you had the same experience. maybe it’s just taking you a few years to really understand that attraction does not mean attracted
oh my god so much like i’m sure you think scully’s life sucks right now yea???
