I believe Arielle and Kati left out the important point of "if you don't feel that not wanting sex is a problem, then it isn't". Leaving "Arielle scarcella asexual budding" that information could lead to young asexuals doubting their identity, don't you think?
Don't get me wrong it's is important to understand that there could be health issues if you have suddenly lost interest in sex but I don't think that takes attraction into account at all, does it? I've seen similar opinions before.
A lot of people think that asexuality should be considered a medical disorder. But it's often not caused by any underlying health problems at all.
I think that's what causes a lot of the confusion around asexuality. Yeah I've heard that some think it's a mental disorder but correct me if i'm wrong, the DSM-V has removed it as such? Also homosexuality used to be classed as a mental illness.
Asexual homoromantic lesbians exist, obv...
I remember being supper happy that a youtuber with nearly half a million subscribers was spreading asexual awareness! I
Arielle scarcella asexual budding why so many people find asexuality so hard to comprehend.
Yeah, I may come back and respond when I'm not so pissed off but its interesting to know that obviously we're all broken I'm gonna cheer myself up with Cake Anyone else want a slice? Okay, these people are completely incompetent.
I mean, I'd even have
Arielle scarcella asexual budding impression if I didn't know they were talking bullshit. What kind of circle are they relevant in, exactly? Wait, are we going to riot over what a bunch of random people on the internet think? Cause I just bought this
Arielle scarcella asexual budding pitchfork I'm looking to try out. I don't think this was meant to smear asexuality but is just a case of bad scripting and editing. They wanted to focus on what instances lack of sexual urges can be the result of things other than asexuality but failed to distinguish when it is from asexuality.
I'm all for everyone regardless of orientation to get things checked out by a doctor but the way they put it together did make it seem like they're saying asexuals have a mental disorder: Yeah I agree that there wasn't intentional invalidation, however it is unfortunately on the internet for thousands to see and interpret incorrectly: It's not about "proving" the sexuality right or wrong.
Looking at it as it is, instead of defending it "just because". What matters is that people are taking care of themselves. If someone does have a medical concern that causes them to lose their libido--they should get checked out!
If someone is sexual, nobody questions it. We're a culture saturated by sex and I think this "its not an orientation" ideal is just is a type of backlash. Someone not experiencing libido, will cause a sex-driven culture to respond like-so. What really matters is that there are people who ARE asexual etc and shouldn't be left in the dark.
Eradicating asexuality or other orientations confuses the point. We need community, and riding ourselves of asexuality loses a community that could have offered so much support to people who need it. I feel like the video could have been named "reasons why asexual people aren't really asexual" or "why asexual people are really just mentally ill" and it would have been a more accurate title. It doesn't even seem like they understand what asexuality is in the first place.
That was a disappointment. The mental health specialist is only one of many mental health professionals what makes her opinion so special? This video is a problem in that it does not take into account those people who have been asexual for many years of their life without suffering from illness or taking medication.
This video glosses over the fact that asexual people often never feel sexually inclined, not just when they're depressed. They also conflated
Arielle scarcella asexual budding with not having a Arielle scarcella asexual budding, which isn't the same.
Arielle has made other videos in support of asexuality, I don't see why it's different here. Probably the best thing to be done Tarfeather is use kotoamatsukami upon them, get Arielle and Kati to acknowledge it's not a joke.
All jesting aside, I subjectively see this as something akin to tunnel vision.
Arielle seemed to equate her own experiences alone with "Arielle scarcella asexual budding" lack of wanting sexual desire as due to mental illness. Kati speaks about depression and eating disorders from her own professional experience, with people lacking sexual desire as not then wanting the "sex on top" while be treated.
Basically they're Cherry Picking and it's a rather painful, patently obvious Logical Fallacy. If you pick a few specific circumstances and whip out your best horse blinders, it helps with maintaining your
Arielle scarcella asexual budding in assertion.
However if you work with a sample size greater than a Planck Length, I expect this is subjective with a lack of corroborating evidence at this time that people whom identify as Asexual are not all suffering a mental illness of one description or another. In fact I would love to hear from those here whom have perfectly level heads. Apologies for the rant but I've encountered this frustrating ignorance and I'm going to use that pejorative word with gusto POV with more than a few psychologists over the years.
Although, it could simply be they aren't aware what kind of message their video is sending. Being a part of AVEN, most of us understand what asexuality is. The two women in the video, who are obviously just trying to educate their audience but are misinformed themselves. Leading their video to be misinforming. They talked about medical issues and mental "disorders" that might causes loss of libido; but like you said, they don't know how to look at asexuality. And hence, miss their point entirely.
October 8, Ariel. I don't...
I think asexuality and bullimia may be correlated, just the way asexuality and agender'ness may be correlated. But that just
Arielle scarcella asexual budding people who don't want sex also tend not to want a sexual body, pathologizing that is really ick.
My impression is they just messed up royally. They said in the beginning of the video they want to look at both sides of the discussion. Then they only talk about why someone may not be asexual. It's like they lost their script halfway through. Ones an eating disorder, ones a sexuality orientation. And yes, their script is totally scrambled. The nazis were going to ban books, as most peoples opinions were rubbish, and this video shows this. That
Arielle scarcella asexual budding shows why peoples vote should never matter, as why would anyone want a population that know nout to decide things for you.
Females cannot fathom that some people do not want them. Let them live in there ignorance, as they probably never found out nout in there lifes, they cannot fathom some people do.
A minority of people will not go through puberty like everyone else.
This is my long angry...
But sex obsessed people have no clue. Its none of there business, but they love preaching that everyone is sex obsessed like them. There are people who hunger themselves down
Arielle scarcella asexual budding they don't want a curvy female looking body. My girlfriend is one of them, I know at least of one other on here who explicitly said that about themselves.
They didn't, at any point, say asexuality is a mental illness. They said rather than just assume you're asexual if you're not feeling sexual especially if you're really young consider other things too - depression, eating disorders, stress in general, whatever. Talk to someone about it. Given that teenagers, especially, have changes and pressures coming at them from all sides, I'd have thought this was just sensible advice.
They specifically said "We will now talk about asexuality and the pro- and counter-arguments of it being real". Then they talked a whole bunch about mental illness.
It's heavily implied there they don't think asexuality to be real although they most likely didn't mean to come off that way, and it was more likely a scripting error. What does this have to women in general? I've seen guys in the same position. Almost offended that some women aren't attracted to them, as if somehow its required.
Attraction is attraction; and so is non-attraction. The women in the video are just two women. Such are you are just one person--you don't stand to generalize other people--and nor do these women. I happen to be "female" and I wholheartedly disagree with their video. They try and make a two-sided point, but miss the target entirely. The exact words are 'So lately there have been a few articles floating round the internet sometimes on the Huffington Post and stuff like that and also articles that you guys have sent us through Twitter about asexuality and whether or not if it's actually a legitimate sexual orientation.
There are a few arguments in either direction and we're going to talk about that'. Then they specifically talk about contacts the one on the left has come across relating to her work in mental illness. Later, they differentiate those people from asexuals who have protested at the DSM definitions. I agree, they don't really talk about legitimacy, but what they do talk about is how sexual desire can "Arielle scarcella asexual budding" affected by "Arielle scarcella asexual budding" mental illnesses.
