“You all know what Gandhi did. He didn’t eat, which made him very thin. He also walked everywhere he went, which built up a lot of callouses on the soles of his feet. When he did eat, he ate Indian food which is spicy and likely gave him bad breath. When he died, he is reputed to have left behind many prophecies about the future.
So I guess you could say he was a SUPER CALLOUSED FRAGILE MYSTIC PLAGUED WITH HALITOSIS.”
Asexuality as Identity
“After this failed relationship, I guess I’ll be asexual for a while.”
I’ve overheard a lot of people make joking comments similar to this. What they mean is their sexual relationships aren’t quite working out the way they want, so they are accepting their unfortunate circumstances. Though the joke may seem appropriate, such comments ignore the fact that many people are asexual. Asexuals don’t just happen to be sexually inactive at the moment – they actually claim asexuality as a sexual orientation and identity.
