An Apology To The ACE Community

As everyone knows, the ACE community comprises asexual individuals, who are referred to as being gray-A, a grace or a gray ace. Within the broad ACE umbrella (again, I recognise I am preaching to the choir here – these notes are intended for the uninitiated), there are various individuals who are demisexual, semisexual, asexual-ish and sexual-ish – or quite possibly a mix of these-ish.

It’s clearly not necessary for me to define these terms to this audience; however, by way of example, the asexuality blog helpfully explains that people who are “Ace of Diamonds: Demiromantic/Demisexual & Grey-aromantic/Grey-Asexual are those who experience romantic and/or sexual attraction only if a strong emotional bond is established OR Experiences romantic/sexual attraction rarely, not strongly enough to act on, only under specific circumstances, or fluctuates between periods of experiencing attraction and not experiencing it.”

Whichever way you swing (or don’t, in the case of the gray-As), these people occupy a high place in the oppression pyramid. For this reason, we need to celebrate their existence and make them more visible in general society.

And this is precisely where we at the Accredited Times let down the gray aces. The ‘international ACE visibility Day’ takes places each year on May 8th, i.e. two days ago. Which means we let this important day go by without marking it with an article in support of a community which is so often forgotten.

It is one thing to forget a loved one’s birthday or a significant anniversary (although my experience is that I get plenty of reminders after the event), it is quite another to forget the ACE visibility day.

So, to all the gray-As out there, sorry for forgetting your big day; I hope you celebrated it with a bang.

Inequality is natural. Man-made utopia is paradoxical because the harder leftists strive for zero-sum, the worse things get. Ever hear of Margaret Mead? If progressives want a star to steer by, look to white males; they are more oppressed than this laundry list of outliers. Favorable treatment including grants, loans and preferences must be funneled to whites immediately!!

Whites oppressed? You must be joking! Whites are the OPPRESSORS of every other race!

And why is it that whites and Asians must outperform everybody to such an extent and show everybody else up? Why do they flaunt their wealth in the faces of those who envy it?? This makes the have-nots upset, which is why we need communism where nobody earns more than anyone else! That’s FAIRNESS!

We need to flood Hallmark with hateful tweets.
I went to my local Walmart card section to get some of my ACE Friends a card recognizing this special day. They had plenty of Belated Birthday cards and anniversary. etc… Not only could I not find a belated card for this important day I could not even find one recognizing it.
There are many of these types of occasions that this insensitive Hallmark conglomerate fails to recognize. Their turning a blind eye to it is is as good as supporting the hate groups who would speak against them.
SHAME ON HALLMARK.

I didn’t know about this day until today, but now that I do I’m going to mercilessly shame anyone who dares to admit that they don’t know about it.

On the other hand Pbier, maybe these people are happier not being celebrated. They prefer to be alone after all. I love this brave new world full of single lonely people – it’s so much better to be independent than be tied down by a relationship!

Many years ago, I saw a movie called “Kindergarten Cop,” and there’s one scene where a child says, “Boys have a penis, and girls have a vagina.” No! Adults around the world tell children that nonsense, and they need to stop. The truth is that sometimes boys have a vagina. Sometimes girls have a penis. Gender identity is in your brain and has absolutely nothing to do with what equipment you have or don’t have in your crotchal region. Some people have a gender identity that is non-binary. If you want to know what pronoun to use when addressing someone, ask them. I have a friend who prefers the pronouns ze/zir. (*If I didn’t explain all that properly, please let me know. I am still learning. **I know that movie was made a long time ago. Now we know better and can do better.)

Wow what an inspiring quote! I wish conservatives would stop confusing kids about gender and sexuality. Our children deserve the full truth and they deserve it now.

Children not only need the full truth – they also need the appropriate healthcare. Puberty blockers and reassignment treatment are a fundamental human right.

Totally agree. But now that Trump has repealed healthcare for millions of children – many of them won’t even have access to puberty blockers or sex changes! And now we have alt right bigots trying to get sex education out of pre and primary school curriculums! What kind of nightmare are we living in??

richandrenee

If we have to have a man for president why can’t we have a real man like Buck Angel?

MillionDollarBonus

So true – Trump is such a terrible example for children!

If white heterosexual males make you sick, try a partner from the ACE community.

Does the ACE community include castrated black males?

A popular Muslim custom was to do the nasty with black slave girls, who were guarded by castrated black guards.

Considering that the slave trade has been brought back to Libya, it is only a matter of time before castrated black guards are brought back as well.
