Since returning Asexual News to something approaching life, I've been on the lookout for asexual news stories. They're not as easy to find as one might think.  I came across a person calling herself Miss MisAnthropist who used the #asexual hasthtag on Twitter. Now, I figure if someone uses this Hashtag, they clearly want the attention of asexuals, so I go see what she has to say, and it's god-awful.

It's just another "asexuals are special snowflakes" variety stuff that I shouldn't have even responded to on a slowest of news days, but I do so anyway, figuring she'll get a few hits off of it and I can build up my YouTube channel as well as get some more hits to my website. I make a short response video with my poor equipment, and I leave one comment.

This is where things go wrong. I challenged the self-perceived expert, and of course, the website no longer maintains the research on asexuality arhcives, but that's unreleated.

I go in for a few seconds to find out that it's about me. I haven't watched the rest of it and I'm afraid to.  This was not wise, Lara, you know things like this set off your social anxiety.   Just be nice.

This house is not the best place for recording videos.  It works okay for recording sound, although I should have some cooling pad or a new pc fan to solve the issue.

Several years ago, there was a split in the Tumblr asexual community. The people who wanted to be more positive came to Dreamwidth, which left the more negative people and the trolls on the other site. I decided to respect the decision of the people who wanted a more pleasant experience. After all, I know that I'm not someone who can be cheery and uplifting all the time. Even as a minor journalist, I tend to focus on the bad things more often than I focus on the good things.

Several years have passed. I have managed to get on hormones. I don't quite look like the pictures that were taken three years ago. (For one thing, my breasts are smaller.) I do not feel as comfortable participating in the asexual communities as I did in the past. (This is because I am not sure I fall into that category any more.)

Now, I have more than enough blogs and social media sites to deal with, but I'll start here for now.
