I am almost finished with my asexual flag scarf. ALMOST. Just finishing the tassels tonight and then I shall wear it ALL OVER CAMPUS tomorrow.
I’m so excited. I’ve wanted this for months. And I’m kind of especially excited to get to wear it in time for my panel on Thursday. Oh my gosh I still love doing panels so much and I’m actually sort of excited for the asexuals-only one a couple of us at UGA are trying to put together. So far we’ve only got three people for it, but hopefully that’ll be enough. Now I just need to see if our officers can get me a date and a room to hold it in.
Which reminds me! Last week’s panel was… um, my least favorite so far, mostly because I got there two hours early due to miscommunication and was therefore sort of flustered for the panel itself, which meant I oversimplified some things. Also, people kept asking questions of the group as a whole that I couldn’t really answer, like “How do you hit on people?” Of course, that was the one the panel elected to answer in a line starting with… me, which led to a ton of flailing about how I actually don’t get hitting on people at all and it doesn’t happen to me aaaaaaah!
I got asked whether I would ever consider dating a sexual person (short answer: no), whether I date period (I got to use my new favorite phrase—“I’m in Schroedinger’s relationship”—I might be dating someone or I might not but either way I can’t open the box to find out and also it’s confusing), and whether my sexuality was influenced by my religion. I’ve gotten that last one every time so far; it’s actually kind of satisfying to explain that I’m an atheist.
No one asked me if I masturbated this time. In general I find that questions I get doing panels are way more polite than questions I get just coming out in general, which in turn tend to be way more polite than Internet questions.
