Crazy how quiet everybody was and is about chechnya. Like lgbt people are being tortured and murdered by chechen officials and by their own family and people. When the news first broke out in 2017 there was barely any posts on tumblr despite the fact that we found out a literal gay purge was happening and now the documentary about it was released two days ago and im one of the only people doing posts about it here on tumblr. Honestly the most heartbreaking part about the documentary wasnt all the fucked up things but the fact despite these horrible fucking things happening nobody cares barely anybody is talking about it. Youd think a website with huge amounts of lgbt users would make this trend but no when you go in the tags theres literally less than ten new posts. Putin isnt gonna do shit about it the lgbt chechens and the people evacuating them need support from other countries russia is not gonna fucking help them. Every day this fucking site is filled with stupid lgbt discourse and shit that doesnt fucking matter but when an actual gay purge happens and actual people are being murdered and tortured yall decide to be quiet and do absolutely nothing.
the confused asexual before realizing they were asexual:
► “I’m not dating anyone because I want to focus on school and I’m too busy.” -said all through high school and college.
► “I don’t care how someone looks, I care about their personality.” - A common response to: ‘what’s your type??”
► Yeah, literally not having a ‘type’. Never understanding how people have ‘types’.
► “I’ll never have kids I am going to have dogs.”
► Never understanding fuck, marry, kill. Especially other peoples choices in the game.
► Getting really good at saying “Thank you for asking, but I’m just not interested in dating anyone right now.”
► Avoiding sexual conversations at all costs because they are uncomfortable, confusing or truly boring.
► Being a total hopeless romantic and wondering why people are more interested in how hot someone is versus them being kind?? or smart?? or funny?? what their hobbies are?? how they treat their mom??
► Being confused when people will go out of their way, even dangerously so, to please/impress someone they think is hot. Like why? You can see the heartbreak coming a million miles away because what even is sexual attraction.
► The explanation at all family dinners for not having a significant other is that you have more important things to be worrying about right now, LIKE SCHOOL.
► Being completely oblivious to others flirting at you and also not realizing when you might be coming off as flirty because you’re just a nice person and like to hold doors open for people.
► Anytime you find a good new song and then actually listen to the lyrics and sit there like??? What does this mean?
► Wondering why thinking about holding someones hand gives you butterflies in your stomach but if you even try to imagine having sex with them your mind goes blank.
Hey, if you’re ace, that’s chill. It doesn’t mean anything is wrong with you or that you need to change. Some people just aren’t into people sexually and that’s fine. Be confident in yourself.
