Dispute

I’m making this a separate page from the contact page because I specifically want a page where I clearly state:

I want you to question me, to question my premises, to point out assumptions I’m making, to tell me when I’ve said something that offends you or I’ve made a claim that you know isn’t accurate.

I’ve done some things worth being called on; some were silly mistakes (like using the words “everybody” and “nobody” – I should know better) or stupid (like asserting something that sounded like I meant it could be applicable to all aces based almost entirely on my own experiences before actually asking other aces).

If you want to call me on something I’ve said, done, or written on this site or anywhere on the web please feel free to use the following form to tell me so. This box will allow you to contact me anonymously. If appropriate, I will do my best to write a response in the “posts” section.

    What did I do/say/write that is problematic?: “Heteroromantic is not the same thing as being heterosexual.”
    Please articulate what is problematic about what I did/said/wrote here.: Being hetero is being hetero. Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people coined the term “straight” to describe hetero people. Hope That Helps.

    Dispute submitted January 10th, recognized January 11th
    Responded to: January 21st You can find a preliminary post related to this dispute here.

    Name (optional): Nona
    What did I do/say/write that is problematic?: Your general misuse of the term queer.
    Please articulate what is problematic about what I did/said/wrote here.: Queer is a reclaimed homophobic and transphobic slur. It can ONLY be reclaimed by those who are called it- lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans* people. It CAN NOT be reclaimed or used by those it is not a slur against. It is not a slur for asexuals who are not homo, pan, poly (ect.), bi-romantic OR trans*. For those asexuals who do not experience some variation of gay attraction and who are not trans it is wildly inappropriate to identify as queer and/or demand entrance to queer safe spaces.
    If you want a response, where should I post that I’ve written a response?: I’ll check your posts section on my own
