asexualthings:

Asexuality is an orientation in which a person does not experience sexual attraction to any sex and/or gender. They do not feel an intrinsic desire to make sex a part of their relationships with other people. However they may still be able to experience other types of attraction, and desire relationships with other people.

Check out the following websites to learn more about asexuality, join in on the community, and/or help increase asexual visibility and education.

17 lies we need to stop teaching girls about sex

Fueled by outdated ideals of gender roles and the sense that female sexuality is somehow shameful, there are certain pernicious myths about girls and sex that just won’t die. That sex education in America has gaping holes doesn’t help much, either; in a recent Centers for Disease Control (CDC) report, just 6 out of 10 girls said that their schools’ sex ed curriculum included information on how to say no to sex. This lack of personal agency was reflected in a forthcoming study by sociologist Heather Hlavka at Marquette University as well, which found that many young girls think of sex simply as something that is “done to them.”

Recognition memory: the ability to recognize previously encountered events, objects, or people. When the previously experienced event is re-experienced, this environmental content is matched to stored memory representations, eliciting matching signals. Recognition memory can be subdivided into two component processes: recollection and familiarity, sometimes referred to as “remembering" and "knowing”, respectively. Recollection is the retrieval of details associated with the previously experienced event. In contrast, familiarity is the feeling that the event was previously experienced, without recollection. Thus, the fundamental distinction between the two processes is that recollection is a slow, controlled search process, whereas familiarity is a fast, automatic response.

In both cases, a person needs to be presented with a stimulus before a memory is triggered. Once a stimulus has triggered a person’s recognition memory, the memories that resurface can fall anywhere along a scale from a hazy feeling that a certain event or stimulus has been experienced before to recall of intricate details about a past experience.

I just want Natasha to beat the ever loving crap out of Ward. Like to just school him so hard he realizes he was never even close to her league. Like so not in her league he’s not even playing the same sport. And maybe for Bucky to walk through and be like “damn son, even when I was brainwashed I knew who the queen was” and Maria just posts a bunch of pictures online.

I just WANT that, okay?

minimum wage doesn’t even TOUCH a living wage, racism and sexism are alive and well, children are killed in schools on a regular basis, those who make it to college end up with hundreds of thousands in debt, our basic rights are being stripped from us daily, and adults actually believe that SELFIES are the cause for this generation’s demise
