a lot of people have been made to feel ashamed for thinking sex is gross, or being indifferent to sex, or not being interested in romance. a lot of people have also been made to feel ashamed for having sexual and/or romantic desires at all. these things overlap.
so please, we need to tread lightly when we talk about each other.
it’s a common coping mechanism to make fun of what we perceive as the ‘normal’, but in the realm of sexuality, there are a lot of not-normals, and often there will not be a clear ‘normalcy’ differential between two of us chosen at random.
think before you make jokes, let alone serious statements, and make sure you’re not accidentally echoing an age-old prejudice that has beaten down someone else, just because it isn’t the specific age-old prejudice that beat down you.
