Imagine there was a video game where the whole point of the game was to create roads that worked perfectly for cars and pedestrians and trains

Imagine you gave this video game to a bunch of neurodivertent people

In 6 months they would have created systems to perfect the flow of traffic in the game in every conceivable scenario

We all know that this is true

And yet people still believe that folks can't do anything extraordinary unless they're under the threat of poverty and death

Pathologization of asexuality 


Asexuality is actually in the DSM twice as like, a pathological disorder? I shouldn't be surprised because like, history, but why don't people talk about this? Like, non-asexual people in particular I don't know if I've ever heard them mention this

I've seen it discussed in passing in ace circles.

Honestly this is so fucking disgusting and illustrative of how coercive society is around sex. Anyone not wanting to engage in it must be disordered and need fixing
