I’m just really fucking whiny and annoying tonight. I apologize.
On a different note: I’m real close to murdering this kid. =n=
Yesterday one of the Pride center students was asking me about asexual sex myths for their discussion on “Queer Sex Myths” and so I was telling her some of the common misconceptions and she asked if I’d go as well, so I said sure and stayed on campus to attend.
When the discussion started, they went around the circle to introduce ourselves and we stated our name, preferred pronouns and sexual orientation since it was a discussion on sex. I, of course, say my name, asexual and that my preferred pronouns are gender neutral singular they/them/theirs.
Now, I’ve got issues with this kid to start with. He’s a real asshat and he’s been a big problem in the center, but they don’t ban him for some reason. He constantly verbally assaults others and says shit that’s inflammatory on purpose.
While we were trying to have the discussion, he like loudly whispers “Isn’t they plural, so you can’t use it like that.” and I just responded “Nope, common usage. You can make it singular.” because I wasn’t in the mood to get into it with him.
Later, a group of us were talking about names and what not and I mentioned that I hate it when people say “Ashley” because that isn’t my name and it’s a bit irritating when people don’t ask for your name and use the one on the card because that’s not always right and the kid starts asking me for my first name! I’m like no, there’s a reason I don’t use it, stop asking!
