eastberlin replied to your post “Hello. I’d like to weigh in here. I don’t think allosexual is an insulting word at all, it is simply a way of describing someone who feels sexual attraction, as opposed to someone who is asexual and doesn’t. It carries no insulting or derogatory meaning, and I fail to see in which way it is. If you can explain otherwise I will kindly stop using the word, but as an ace myself I find it the easiest way to refer to people who are not asexual. Thanks :). Can you tag this with #1234 so I can find it?”

Plus the grouping of gay people under a label meaning sexual when one of the stereotypes about us is that we’re hypersexual makes me really uncomfortable.

exactly. this is an excellent point. LGBT have vastly different experiences with regards to their sexuality as opposed to straight people. in other words, the idea that there is an asexual vs non asexual experience when it comes to sex is a false dichotomy. these two opposites, don’t exist, they can’t exist when one group of “allosexuals” oppresses another group of “allosexuals”

there is no word that can and should be used to describe non-asexual people as a whole because of this fact. i mean even the sexual experiences of gay men versus lesbians vastly differ because of how straight people perceive us. (gay men anal all the time, but lesbians, how do they even do it?)

“Mr Gorbachev, tear down this wall!”

Those where the famous words from Ronald Reagan on June 12th, 1987 (VIDEO) and 9. November 1989 - ”Ab sofort, unverzüglich!” (VIDEO). This autumn the 25th anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin Wall will be marked in the German capital with dozens of events and projects commemorating the struggles of the European freedom movement, the Peaceful Revolution and – not least of all – the events of November 9th, 1989. To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, the highlight of these celebrations will take place on the weekend of 7–9 November with 8,000 illuminated white balloons of 15.3 kilometer frontier that once divided the city will be re-imagined, following the former route of the Berliner Mauer: the LICHTGRENZE (or border of lights). This specific event will be accompanied by a performance of the final movement of Beethoven‘s 9th Symphony – the „Ode to Joy“ – by the Staatskapelle Berlin, conducted by Daniel Barenboim. The brothers Christopher Bauder and Marc Bauder conceived the idea of the LICHTGRENZE in 2011, supported by the Robert-Havemann-Gesellschaft e.V. and developed with the help of Kulturprojekte Berlin GmbH.

Vindobinda Empire

In 1991 bold squatters took the Steinweg Grand Piano of a dead state in Eastberlin. It stood on common ground later known as the Anorak and could be played by everyone. It was tagged with spraypaint, lost its legs and ripped out a toenail of a woman….
