To people asking asexuality...
So I noticed that a few people have recently been asking questions about Katarina’s sexuality, and I just kind of wanted to say something about it, so we could put all of these questions to bed:
A.) Go learn about asexuality. Accept it as any other kind of sexuality (just like heterosexuality, homosexuality, bisexuality, pansexuality, etc.) I linked you to some lovely Laci Green videos because she’s a sex educator and she doesn’t take any bullshit.
B.) Chill out, man. We’re all cool here, right? Her personal life isn’t your business. I love hearing about other people just as much as the next person, and I thoroughly enjoy hearing if someone’s life is going well, but asking deeply personal questions on the internet in a way that requires a public answer (on anonymous) isn’t fair. If you’re really concerned about someone’s life, I suggest friendship. I know it can be kind of intimidating at first, but being friends with people is pretty cool, especially on the internet, when you can live in other countries, but still share interests and conversations!
C.) I’m saying this because Katarina is one of my favorite people on tumblr, and I don’t like seeing people asking her the same, personal questions over and over again—I’m sure it gets annoying. I know she has already posted about it, but I thought I might give a little more information and open some doors for education (because education is a great thing). Also, I think it’s important for everyone to know about all of the different sexualities and accept them as a part of humanity. It’s a pretty cool thing, actually.
D.) I don’t mean to step on any toes, here. I’m merely trying to help educate. I hope anyone curious about this looks into getting involved in communities online that pertain to one’s sexuality. It’s a great way to find support and help if/when you feel ready to come out to friends or family members.
Hermione, Hedwig, and Molly :)
Hermione Granger: What is your favorite book, how many times have you read it, and why do you love it?
Right now, it’s tied between Tender is the Night (three times), Les Mis (oh that damn glorious brick; twice), and Matilda (10 times?). Tender is the Night is so unbearably, wonderfully human, and then there’s Fitzgerald’s prose. I owe Les Mis more than I can say. Matilda… Her entire world’s against her, and she takes things for herself and carves out her own life because people should be giving her nothing but affection and love and support and she wasn’t getting any of that, and she gets back at the people who hurt her, and BOOKS AND READING AND MAKING LIFE BETTER THROUGH BOOKS!!!, and then I have a thing about families of choice and sadfhdls I can’t with that book okay? It means a lot more to me now.
Hedwig: If you went to Hogwarts, what kind of pet would you bring? (ex: cat, owl, rat, frog)
A cat (though mine wouldn’t like Hogwarts at all, other cats I’ve had would have been fine with it).
Molly Weasley: What is the proudest moment of your life?
I once stood up to someone who’d been treating me badly. It wasn’t particularly dramatic- I just asked a couple of questions. But I realized she couldn’t actually do anything more to me, and she seemed to know I knew. It was exhilarating and terrifying.
