An apology, and a goodbye.
When I first made this blog, I thought that it was going to be a good idea. I thought that a humorous or lighthearted approach to sexuality was just what the world needed to really be educated. Apparently, I was wrong.
The reason I have not been posting as much is because, every time I post something, immediately afterwards I get a continuous stream of impolite messages in the blog’s inbox, some politely corrective (even if I disagree on what they think is correct), and some telling me to kill myself or that I’m a terrible worthless person who shouldn’t be trying to educate anyone.
And maybe it’s true that I shouldn’t be an educator, maybe I’m not the type after all. A more tolerant person than me, a more patient person, might be able to keep this blog and work around the mass amounts of hate I’m getting, but I am not a patient person, and this blog is proving to be bad for my anxiety and health.
I’m going to leave the blog up so that my articles and the advice I’ve given can stay documented, but I will no longer be making new posts. I tried to carve a niche into the community that there is apparently no room for, and that was a mistake. I don’t want to be told to kill myself or how wrong I am every day, because that frustrates me.
The way the GLBTQ community handles educating people about non-straight sexualities frustrates me, and I cannot be a part of it any longer.
This is my personal blog. I will be posting some asexuality things there, as now I won’t have a side blog for it. But it is primarily a fandom blog, so don’t feel obligated to follow it, although I do tag everything. And if any of you ever, ever need any advice, please talk to me, I will always answer if you need my help.
I want to sincerely thank those of you who I was actually able to help and entertain, those of you who did enjoy this blog. I hope that someday we can live in a world where these types of blogs can exist without their owners being bashed and threatened.
