One Manga shutting down.
http://www.onemanga.com/ Okay, people are really bitching about it. I assume these people must all be younger than me, because let me me tell you about back in the old days, sonny. As far as I know, One Manga only dates back to about 2007, as far as I know. And from a usefulness standpoint, it was a very cool site. But there were things before One Manga. There were sites like Bleach7,...

fuckyeahaces: There’s some confusion between aromanticism and asexuality, but this is funny! And I like to think it’s true in regards to “damn good taste”. Still, if we’re going to make sweeping generalisms, at least these ones are pretty spot-on. Great article.
SHOUT SOMETHING! IT CAN BE HAPPY AND ABOUT PRIDE OR ABOUT WHY YOU HATE HOMOPHOBIA! WHY ARE WE SHOUTING IT MAKES ME NERVOUS I GUESS I REALLY HATE HOMOPHOBIA BECAUSE IT IS JUST ANOTHER FACET OF PEOPLE’S INABILITY TO COMPREHEND A LIFESTYLE BEYOND THEIR OWN AND GOES HAND IN HAND WITH OTHER TYPES OF IGNORANCE AND I THINK THE ONLY BIGOTRY ALLOWED IS BIGOTRY AGAINST BIGOTS OKAY I THINK...
Write a letter to someone. It can be a coming out letter or a letter regarding how you hate their homophobia or whatnot. You don’t have to send it. Dear Liz: I am asexual. Did you like my asexual joke? I don’t like to do serious things in memes too much. Love and crumpets, Erin
Your favorite LGBT blog/tumblr/site Why, fuckyeahaces, of course!
Your favorite gay joke (we all need to laugh at ourselves) O_O TWO ASEXUALS WALK INTO A BAR THEY HAVE TEA AND THEN THEY GO HOME AND HAVE A DISCUSSION ABOUT OSCAR WILDE BEFORE GOING TO BED AT A REASONABLE HOUR I guess the one with the gay flight attendant and the princess/queen thing is pretty funny too.
The LGBT slur you hate most or if you’ve taken back a slur and used it as a definition, ie queer or fag Um, I use queer as a definition a little bit due to the fact that asexuals aren’t really ‘gay’ but they are considered queer. To me, the use of slurs is really more a question of intent and context. If you perceive it as an insult and make it clear that it’s an...
The stupidest argument/comment you’ve heard about gay people or an LGBT issue Hm. That’ s a toughie. Uh… I could just say any religion-based argument but I guess anything based on evolution would be stupider. Do not take my beloved science and contort it to your foul means! I actually can’t think of anything specific right now so I’ll just leave it at that.
An LGBT image that makes you cry or makes you angry See last post. This is another thing I don’t have.
Political LGBT issue that is closest to you or affects you most Hm. I’m more social that political but I guess the most imminent thing is the Texan Republican platform. As a native Texan (okay born in Buffalo but my whole family is Texan and I’ve been here for 16 years) I strongly disapprove of that bullshit, and will most definitely be voting for Bill White. *angryface at...
Maureen or Joanne? (Or your favorite LGBTQ show or queer-positive show) WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE I don’t really watch TV too much anymore so I’ll say SPONGEBOB :D
Butch or Femme? What? Who? Where? What do I prefer? What am I? Um I don’t know what I prefer but I’m rather androgynous so I myself am neither butch nor femme? I AM SO CONFUSED WHAT IS THIS QUESTION DIRECTED AT
Something about the LGBTQ community you don’t understand or have a question about When it comes to the more obscure trans stuff I don’t know everything (especially about operations/hormone therapy and such) and I guess I don’t totally know the difference between omni and pansexual? I don’t know too much about gender stuff mostly because I’m haven’t talked a lot...
Your first experience with an LGBT organization or event (Day of Silence, Pride, etc) Hm… I don’t remember doing anything before college with an LGBT organization, but at around the same time I discovered the GSA-type group on our campus and participated in the day of silence for 2009. Day of Silence was… well… day of silence, which is always difficult for me, not...
A picture from your first LGBT relationship or of your first LGBT crush BAAAAHahahahahaha Sorry I don’t mean to be flippant Mr. Meme! I have never been in one.
Your favorite LGBT quote Um. I also don’t really do quotes. “Treat others as you would like to be treated”? I do that one for most everything.
Your favorite LGBT song or artist “If You Were Gay” from Avenue Q. I AM A HORRIBLE PERSON Um… I really freaking love Of Montreal which has LGBT content but Kevin Barnes has a wife and daughter so I wouldn’t make too many assertions about his or his band members’ sexualities.
Your favorite LGBT role model/celebrity Um… I don’t really do role models and celebrities but I will say that Ellen Degeneres is fucking hilarious and Neil Patrick Harris is nifty o_______o
Your favorite LGBT movie (or one you’d like to see) Once again, I don’t think I’ve seen that many o_o A lot of my favorite movies have LGBT subplots or implications (Across the Universe, The Hours, Interview with the Vampire, V for Vendetta, Tokyo Godfathers) but I think the only one that was truly LGBT themed was Philadelphia, and I thought that movie was one step above a Lifetime...
Your favorite LGBT book (or one you’d like to read) Um… I actually haven’t read too much LGBT literature mostly because what’s out there applies to my experiences about as much as heterosexual-oriented stories do. But I’d probably have to say Oranges Art Not the Only Fruit by Jeanette Winterson. Mostly because I’m a sucker for wandering stories with...
What does marriage mean to you? Um… an incredibly unlikely possibility that even if I found someone that I liked enough I doubt that I would want to marry them just because I prefer the idea of a companion more than a spouse?
What do you think about LGBT Pride? Is it helpful or hurtful? Encouraged or unnecessary? I think LGBT is definitely helpful and necessary for the community. People tend to think of things in terms of dichotomies, so when it comes to terms of expressing pride, it’s better to express pride at a community level, simply because in the absence of such expression people will see shame. Having...
What do you think the closet or being closeted means to you? I’m not much into the whole Freudian catch-22 where “oh you’re compensating for your underlying homosexual desires by banging as many persons of the opposite gender as possible” or “oh you’re not asexual your just homo/bisexual and don’t want to come to terms with it”. An informed person...
Tee hee, back to the 30 Day LGBT meme. I’m procrastinating right now so I’m gonna do this in breaks :D How your parents took it or how you think they might take it Um… my parents don’t know. My dad’s a bit of a prude in that he doesn’t like to talk about sexual stuff, but he’s not homophobic so I don’t really care too much and I don’t think...
puff levels are H I G H: Day Seventeen →
Your first experience with an LGBT organization or event (Day of Silence, Pride, etc) Well, the first official event I went to was Pridefest NYC 2010 last month, and it was absolutely amazing! Except for the heat and all the people (not really, it was just annoying pushing my way through the… Bwahahaha, I still love that moment. The best thing is that she’s not being disbelieving...
