Okay so recently me and alot of people got into a heated debate over sexuality (as some people didn't believe Asexuality is real).
Let's gloss over some of the points (directly quoted and their names have been changed to protect them.)
Barry: i don't watch samurai jack
Bob: The gay community is mad at the heterosexuality in it
Barry: we're always mad a heterosexuality
Bob: I mean people thought he was asexual.Even after the episode he got a kiss from a girl and was really flustered.
Barry: asexuality is a weird subject
It's a fake subject
its not, but okay
Bob: It's not our intention to be unattracted to nothing, and we can't reproduce with ourselves naturally.
To us, it is fake.
Barry: But its also not a choice to say "Im just not going to feel like i love anything ever"
Bob: That's not asexuality.
Me: That's the scientific definition. by that logic homosexuality is fake Subject. Cause males can't reproduce with males
Bob: Asexuality is impossible, or such a birth defect so rare.
Homosexuality is not our intention, but it is normal to be attracted
Alrighty let me explain how "Bob's" argument is flawed in some areas but correct in others. This is strictly my opinion.
When homosexuality, asexuality, and Heterosexuality are used in a social sense we aren't using the scientific definition. We're using the basic English rules of A- meaning not, homo- meaning same, and Hetero- meaning different. Therefore we aren't saying that if we are asexual that we can reproduce asexually.
What Bob got right-
Sexuality, in my opinion,
Can be determined in various ways
We could be wired to misread signals and receive the same signals as a hetero man looking at an attractive woman when we see an attractive person of the same sex. We could also receive the same signals from both or neither gender.
Through life experiances gain/lose interest or trust in a particular gender. One event is rape, which if it's same sex rape same sex could very likely lead to homophobia.
Now I can't say shit about transexuality or transgender as I don't know enough about it or the community (and it's pretty hard to do so without getting called transphobic these days). I will use whatever pronouns you want me to use and I will respect that. As for me, I frankly don't give half a flying fuck what ya call me. Gender is really an odd subject to me because,well all there is to being a guy is having a penis and to being a girl is having a vagina and breasts. There is no mental difference (other than a few functions dealing with their respective genitalia such as hormones ) between the two sexes. I really do want to know more about that community since I want to be more active in the LGBTQ Community and I really don't understand the concept of gender.#lgbtcommunity #lgbtpride #lgbtq #lgbtrights #asexuality #confusion
