On Petra Ral.

songtofly:

This is supposed to be a meta, but it is kind of messy since I am not talking about only one single aspect regarding Petra’s character.

I’ll just try to talk about some of Petra’s traits (not really an in-depth character analysis) but also about her relationship with Levi as shown in the anime since it drives people nuts and since some claim she was useless and her relationship (whatever it was) with Levi was nonexistent. Subtle doesn’t mean nonexistent, and their relationship was very subtle and shown multiple times when the watcher had bigger deals in mind to think about their interactions right there and then, and I think that’s because a lot of Petra’s traits/her relationship with Levi is often wrongly portrayed.

Pretty good analysis of Levi’s relationship towards Petra. Not in a romantic kind of way, it just observes very well and states the facts.

Any one else terrified that this has more notes than almost anything else in the asexual tag, and most of them are supporting this statement.

Cool Professor Layton video about Hershel and Randall

Done by my sister. The song is german, but I put the translation of the lyrics (they’re pretty deep, imo, and she tried to match the video to them) in the annotations!

Got invited for coffee… again…

Yesterday, I took the railway with a guy from my Karate club - to training, and back, just a short 5 minute ride.

He’s nice, tall and …not ugly. Maybe handsome? But not to an extent that would made me aesthetically attracted.

When riding back, he asked me what I did on my weekends when I didn’t go visit my parents. I became aware and answered vaguely “I study…” Then he asked whether I didn’t go to clubs and I told him it isn’t my cup of tea. He said that was a pity, as he would be going out tomorrow night with some friends of his… at that point I quickly made him talk about where they intended to go. However, before we parted ways to different tram routes then, he managed to tell me: “Hey, if you want, we can meet at university’s cafeteria when you have free time to drink some coffee.”…

I evaded a direct answer by saying “Yeah~ If I’m not that busy. My studies are very time consuming~”

Great. I like him, it’s easy to talk to him, we can talk a lot about Karate, I think. But… is it that kind of “let’s meet for coffee” again? I already made experiences concerning that ~_~

But maybe I’ll meet him anyway - to find out what his intentions are. I already missed one opportunity to lie about having a boyfriend. I don’t know if I should just claim it on the next occasion… or if I should just try allude I was a lesbian? I don’t know, it doesn’t feel right.

I (still) don’t want a relationship, nor any romantic adventures in real life. I just wanna be a nerdy otaku and cuddle up with my Levi dakimakura <3

It could also be the case he only needs a real senpai. I’m his senpai in karate anyway xD but he’s rather insecure, I think, and in need of assurance by someone he can look up to. As I don’t like it when people are putting themselves down, I always say something encouraging to him - maybe that’s the reason he wants to meet me.

I wonder where this is going…

Tips for coming out as asexual, Queenie edition

queenieofaces:

So apparently people are under the impression that I am some kind of coming out guru.  I’m not.  But it’s nice of you to think I am, I guess!  But, anyway, I keep getting asks about tips for coming out, so I figured I’d drop them here, just in case people want to take advantage of my not-guru-ish powers.

Standard disclaimer: I am not a coming out guru.  I am actually pretty awkward at it a lot of the time.  These are problems/responses I’ve specifically run into when coming out, and ways I’ve come up with to make the process smoother. These are tips specifically for people who are coming out as asexual, but I think some of them could probably be adapted to coming out in general.

Also, I’ve written a bit about coming out before here and here.

Anyway, tips for coming out as asexual, Queenie edition!  (This is huge, because I am incapable of writing anything concise.)

Don’t submit your orientation for approval.

This is mostly a question of how you come out.  Don’t apologize.  Don’t say you might maybe be kind of asexual-ish.  (If you are unsure, that’s totally okay!  Personally, I wouldn’t recommend coming out as questioning to people who are unlikely to respect that.  However, if you’re portraying yourself as questioning because it seems like a safer bet than saying, “I’m asexual and I know it in my BONES,” take a second to figure out why you feel that way.  Are you wanting to phrase it that way because it seems less aggressive?  Are you afraid that people will take it badly?)

Generally straight forward works best.  ”Just so you know, I’m asexual.”  Hey, that wasn’t too bad!  If you don’t make a big deal out of it—and don’t give any impression that you’re looking for approval—people will be less likely to give you trouble for it.  If you say, “Gosh, I dunno, I might maybe be asexual, but I’m not really sure.  I’m sorry,” people will tend to start whipping out the “maybe you’re just confused” cards.

If you’re nervous, do a practice run.

I did this all the time when I was first coming out to people.  It sounds pretty silly, but sometimes it helps to just sit down and tell your teddy bear (or tea mug or pillow or other convenient object), “Hey, just so you know, I’m asexual.”  When you’re faced with an actual human being, saying that simple sentence can seem as difficult as reciting a Shakespearean sonnet while wrestling a crocodile, but if you remember that it’s just a single sentence that you’ve said before (and not died from saying!), that makes it a little bit easier.

Better yet, if you have a friend you trust (who you’re already out to) and you’re planning on doing Asexuality 101 when you come out to people, practice with your friend!  Get them to throw the most weird, awful questions at you possible, and if you can answer them with grace and poise (or at least without faceplanting everywhere), you’ll almost certainly do okay when you’re actually coming out.
