Lovely avatar I'll defiantly use this in October ^^ And I'm glad that being an asexual, i'm not an outcast or strange. I'm always picked on because of that. It's kinda funny, how the AAW falls on my birthday x3

It's nice to know that as an asexual, I'm not alone or invisible. I'm always getting told something is wrong with me or I must have been abused. Nobody says that to a heterosexual person about their sexual persuasion, so why pick on someone who isn't interested in anyone?
Hey there, ! Nice avatar; I especially like the shade of purple you used. I totally forgot about changing my icon for AAW, and I'm sorry I didn't see this sooner, but I was really busy during AAW, as you might imagine. Anyway, thanks for helping spread the word, this year!
Yeah - I remember in my first year of uni, some people in my hall noted my lack of enthusiasm to run over and see a picture of Dan Carter in his underpants one evening in the common room, and one said "but if Johnny Depp walked in that door, completely naked, and said 'take me', wouldn't you be on him in seconds?", and I said something along the lines of ...I think they put me down as an uber-religious celibate (or perhaps a nun masquerading as a vet student) - until I showed up with a boyfriend, and then they reckoned I must've been lying - they honestly didn't believe that when he stayed over, all we did was watch Star Wars and Doctor Who all night, and that I was completely happy with that.
That sounds a bit like my experience of 6th form... I spent so many lunchtimes being weirded out by my friends describing in FAR too much detail what they'd been doing with their boyfriends or whoever, and I just ended up having to go somewhere else until they stopped, thinking 'when I had a boyfriend, we just went to the park and talked about Pokemon! O_____o'
And now I've got my girlfriend, and whenever we're together we're either cosplaying or watching Doctor Who as well XD
