So I roleplay a character pretty frequently, and the way I portray him is that he's ace, not one for engaging in anything related to sex though not sure about the romantic thing yet. It makes a lot of sense to me despite the other interpretations that I've seen of him [mostly in fanfic for their stories purposes..pointless to have a smut set up and then the protaganist just say..ah no.sorry. though I can't help but think that'd be pretty funny] Alright but here's the frustrations, the fact that he's ace usually never comes up and when it does it's usually accepted pretty matter of factly. No big deal. However today in a chatbox, someone kept denying that it was impossible for my character to not have masturbated [in context the character is quite a bit older than he seems though all the cast of this series is though they still range in human sexual orientations, as so I would think] but my thing is the guy just hadn't had much interest in doing so even throughout all this time. To make it worse the person behind the character, tried to convince me that ooc that it wouldn't make sense for a nation to not even care to masturbate, not have any need for sexual related things. This was particularly frustrating as I just don't like talking about these kinds of things and I was really ready to just bang my head against the wall in frustration. It was really triggering as if the conversation turned to myself I would thus have to out myself and who know what kind of ugh this would have led to. I just felt the need to state this somewhere as otherwise I'm just waiting to blow at someone.and can't have that over the internet.
I know I probably shouldn't be commenting on this here but I have to get this off my mind.. This whole grammy's thing.. I'm very glad for Arcade Fire and Esperanza Spalding, I really appreciate their work so it kind of irritates me when they win and then people instead of actually finding out who they are if they don't know who they are, they bitch around about how they didn't deserve the award for a variety of absurd reasons in cluding, "I don't know who they are".. popularity doesn't guarantee quality, that is something I've learned in this musical climate. I understand that both wins were more than likely huge upsets and maybe I like an upset, a nice surprise. But it really irritates me when people really rage when the most popular people don't get the award as expected. Things like that happen every now and then, once more i mention, an upset. This one I happened to have appreciated so.. well that's all I have to say on it. I just thought I put that out there.
