Because lately, I have seen people using words in the ace tags that are new to me, and also using words I know in ways that make no sense with the meanings I associate with them. Needless to say, this makes constructive dialogue a bit tricky.
Here I work through my thoughts and personal…
My definitions more or less match yours, with one exception: I’ve seen “indifferent” used as sort of an antonym to “repulsed,” with aces ranging from actually indifferent to/”meh” about sex all the way up to aces who enjoy and seek out sex falling under the label of “indifferent.” Mind you, I haven’t seen this in a while, and it’s possible the word isn’t being used in that context so much any more, but my tendency is to see “repulsed/indifferent” viewed as a spectrum that people fall upon and “indifferent” as a term covering one entire side of it. When I was active on AVEN, people often used that scale to identify themselves when the topic came up in conversation, as well as a “libidoist/non-libidoist” scale, the romantic orientation one, and I think one or two others.
I don’t think I’ve seen this happening so much on tumblr or the blogs, though. It may be a community-specific thing?
