Less male gaze, more female gays, u feel me?
tbh, i find the emergence of the concept of demisexuality very interesting, and i’m partial to thinking it’s a symptom of hypersexualized patriarchal culture that demands full sexual availability of women. wanting to develop an emotional bond before having sex is…
This is a really interesting point, but the basis is a bit flawed. Strictly speaking, demisexuality and “waiting to have sex” are not exactly the same thing.
As someone who identifies as asexual (potentially demisexual?), I find it’s important to keep “sexually attracted to someone” and “interested in having sex” as separate thoughts. Related ideas, definitely, but not wholly linked. If it’s a Venn diagram, think two circles mostly overlapping, but with crescent moon shapes on the outsides. For instance, I consider myself asexual but not sex averse. I don’t know if I will ever be sexually attracted to someone, but I know that I’m not entirely opposed to sex as an activity… like a sport!
As the OP implies, someone could be fully sexual (I think I’ve heard the term alosexual?), regularly feeling sexual attraction towards people, but decide they are not interested in casual sex. On the other hand, someone could be entirely asexual, not feeling sexual attraction towards anyone, but decide they enjoy one night stands because sex itself is fun. I would assume this is rare because there’s obviously correlation between being sexually attracted to people and liking sex. I just bring it up to show it’s not exactly a 1 to 1 relationship.
Anyway, the OP has definitely given me something to think about. I just wanted to chime in because I see these ideas being conflated an awful lot and keeping them separate has been a big help in figuring myself out (though I’m still working on it).

Well damn that’s a feat
when you see a map or a family tree at the front of a novel you know that shit is gonna get complicated
And just so you know, this new power? It’s rubbish.
I really should watch more of this. I never got to the rocket scientist bit.
Just a pool, disguised as a pond, with a trampoline instead of a diving board.
I wrote a paper about these kinds of pools several years ago for a class when they were just prototypes. These pools have a natural filtration system that run based on the plants that are in the pool that give the water nutrients that allow it to not only be crystal clear, but you are also able to drink the water because it becomes so clean. And the best part is that once the initial filtration system is installed and calibrated, it maintains itself and eliminates the need for chlorine or constant maintenance like salt water pools.
