  1. Sometimes there are discussion on this board about who and who doesn't want to have children. let's say it was the future and it was possible for people to engineer their kids by picking different genes for them. What type of genes would you contribute to be used? I would give genes that determine the shape of toes since I think mine are very pleasing
  2. What's the opposite of amatonormativity? Relationship anarchy? I embrace relationship anarchy
  3. There are no gods in the universe, no nations, no money and no human rights—except in the common imagination of human beings. Yuval Noah Harari
  4. Your scores: Care 89% Loyalty 33% Fairness 81% Authority 25% Purity 58% Liberty 22% Your strongest moral foundation is Care. Your morality is closest to that of a Left-Liberal. That was interesting. But some of the questions were so stereotypically American that they made me laugh 😄
  5. I was just thinking about how weird the identity of aromanticism is really. Something that is defined by an absence. If you were forced to describe it in terms of pressence rather than absence, what words would you use? Personally I think I'd would describe it as a different focus in life. I'm very concerned with my role in society at large rather than just my relationship to one other person.
  6. I didn't use to think that aromanticism needed a more thorough definition than the current but recently I've been thinking that maybe just talking about romantic attraction is too limited. Since attraction is such a hard term to define so perhaps the definition should be more related to love than attraction.
  7. I feel similar. Gender is not particularly important to me so I have a hard time relating to people who are concerned about it. I wonder though if gender confidence (if that's a phrase) is something you don't notice when you have it. Like how people who have money don't think about money. Or someone who's white saying, I don't think about race.
  8. After reading this thread I tend to agree 😄 Nothing against the participants of the discussion of course, just that I was flabbergasted by how different meaning we give to the word. I think I will try to avoid the word in the future and give more specific description instead.
  9. Probably To me platonic is synonymous with friend. So to say aplatonic suggest someone who doesn't form friendships.
  10. Just cause someone doesn't get squishes doesn't mean they're unable or unwilling to form platonic bonds with others. Platonic attraction seems to me as too vague a term to be useful, but if there is a way to describe it I don't think it's just about getting squishes.
  11. Good initiative for a poll. I wonder if we perhaps shouldn't use aplatonic in that sense though. Because I've seen aros (mainly on reddit) saying that they want to use that to describe how they don't form platonic bonds. I think that's a more intuitive use of that word.
  12. I've heard good things about that one, but also that it's very complicated

  14. I haven't thought about it before but I think I find it useful. It seems appreciation is more cerebral than attraction? One is aware why one finds something pleasing.
