Never apologize for your fluency in english. If you have a different mother tongue, you are under no obligation to know english at all, let alone fluent english. Never let anyone make you feel bad for not speaking proper english. Be proud of your mother tongue. Why should we learn their language when they mock and refuse to learn our own.
I want to thank everyone for the support over the past almost 2 weeks. Mantra Cahiers have been flying out of the stores and along with enabling me to create more, you guys are also helping me EAT here in NY!
After my “crying” post I received so much love and light from friends and…
I'm trying to think help some of my friends understand asexuality, but they're stuck on how I don't feel sexual attraction, yet I'm still curious about sexual things. Do you have any way to help them understand? Like the same feelings in a different situation or something?
I myself tend to compare it to an allergy to peanuts. Just as they did not choose their allergy, we did not choose asexuality. While they know they can’t have peanuts, many with such an allergy wonder what they taste like and why they are such a popular food and ingredient.
I’ll add that the only thing that our sexual orientations depend on is sexual attraction, which is a feeling! Being curious about sex is just a personal interest. I’m really interested in sexuality, and even study it academically. That doesn’t change my sexuality, and your curiosity doesn’t change yours!
malicetowardnone said: Yes! I am realizing I will likely only find someone if I meet them at a bar because they’ll know I’m over 21, attract pedophiles, or not find love till I’m 50 and look 25 haha great opportunities right? Lol
I’m in the EXACT same mindset as you, girl! It can be depressing ahaha! malicetowardnone

I can’t get mad at people who chose to be ignorant. I just laugh and pity them.
I got on Facebook for a hot second yesterday and on of my white guy friends on there was of course (cause he said both Trayvon and the murderer were thugs and idiots), saying the “murder” in Ferguson wasn’t a murder. I bet he only looked into his ignorant side to back him up.
What I really found hilarious was when he said how he bet if he put on a nice suit, carried a wad of cash in hand, and got murdered in the hood, it wouldn’t make the news. BUT his mom’s neighbor was shot and killed by an intruder and that made the news. The guy that shot and killed the young man who just moved to my state with his wife and soon to be baby when he was just taking a walk… That made global news? He was black.
Like, he honestly can’t say much cause of his white privilege. He has “no reason” to be aware of what goes on around him beforehand. But I know I do, and other blacks, notice how they usually make sure to get the black crimes on TV, but if a white person does something it either doesn’t make the news or the refrain from showing pictures right away. Also, I KNOW of people who’ve been unjustly arrested or committed for crimes sooo… I think even Michael Moore talked about how society makes sure to show black men in a big, bad, monstrous light. And we just subconsciously take it in and believe it unless we’re made aware of it.
The whole thing’s just funny because of how inaccurate he is. And how adamant he is about his stance. It’s all funny considering he’s a white male that just now had media in his face about a race crime and he’s against its reality. I’m a thousand percent sure he’s only paying attention to the media news and hasn’t looked into the other side that’s being shared deeper in social media, so he can stay ignorant.
