Borges was asexual? Tesla and Newton...I think the asexuals tend toward genius.
Why do so many gay people insist that any other alternative to heterosexuality is a fraud? One would think that we would be openminded enough to know that just as our sexuality is different than the hegemonically heterosexual, other nonheterosexuals' sexuality may be different than our own.
Cliff Richard - GAY (Has lived with the same guy forever calling him all kinds of pseudonyms except boyfriend)
Paula Pundstone - SUPER GAY (But now has to say she's asexual because she got in trouble driving drunk and hitting on an underaged girl all in the same day)
Jorge Luis Borges - HUGE QUEEN
Meh. Everyone I've ever met who was supposedly 'asexual' turned out to be gay. They all had problems tho - deeply closeted, deeply Christian, deeply in denial - or gay with some profound, specialist kink area.
But in the end - gay.
Simply bring celibate and gay doth not asexual make... Just sayn'
I have a nephew who is very gifted but totally OCD. He can't take germs and washes his hands until they are so dry that he gets sores on them. If his brother, who he considers unclean, touches him, he has to wash that part of his body. I often think that his giftedness and his OCD are related. Anyway, I often wonder, how is he ever going to enjoy sex or even kissing. I fear asexuality is in his future.
Bradford Cox (the genius songwriter from Deerhunter and Atlas Sound) lumped himself in with asexuals for a while but apparently has changed his mind.
