Ultra-Car and Asexuality

itswalkyfanblog:

Shortpacked! fandom, sit down. We’ve got to talk.

I, Wack’d, sole administrator and founding member of this blog, am asexual. More specifically, I’m a heteroromantic asexual, which basically means I’m straight but don’t really want to have sex with anyone.

Ultra-Car is a homoromantic asexual, which basically means she’s gay but doesn’t really want to have sex with anyone. And lemme tell you, folks, you seem to be struggling with that last bit.

I’ve seen a lot of comments since Ultra-Car and Malaya began seeing each other, and most of them are…well…discouraging. People making jokes about how they’re going to get it on when in bed together, people suggesting Willis write a porn comic about the two, people…just, generally ignoring the whole “doesn’t really want to have sex with anyone” part of the definition.

Now, asexual people can and do have sex for a wide variety of reasons, one of them being to please their partner, and clearly Malaya’s been wanting sex as of late. The idea that Ultra-Car could ease those urges is not in and of itself a bad thing, but that people keep insisting this is going to happen even when Ultra-Car has asserted numerous times that the idea outright disgusts her seems to ignore the realities of her character in a way that’s actively damaging. It basically makes Ultra-Car’s feelings on the matter irrelevant.

People have also up until today speculating on whether or not she’s anatomically correct, as though that was the barrier here. Not, y’know, whether or not she’d even want to use those parts if she had them. This is a step beyond—trying to find reasons why UC and Malaya can’t get it on besides “UC doesn’t want to” is turning her sexual orientation into a problem to be fixed.

Many folks today suggested she go back to her parents/creators to get the proper parts installed, and still others at other times have suggested changing her programming. I don’t need to point out why that’s bad, do I? I should hope that these things are self-evidently bad but I guess they’re not. I dunno if it’s her being a robot that makes it okay in this case or if similar changes are being suggested to real-life asexual folks implicitly, but either way…

And lastly we come to the folks who seem unaware of the fact that Ultra-Car and Malaya even are a couple, even though they’ve unambiguously been a couple for a year, simply because UC isn’t putting out. Sex is needed to validate the relationship for some reason. Real nice.

This started as an open letter and degenerated into a tirade. That’s too bad. I’m mad, I’m frustrated, and I dunno if I could edit this without it ripping my hair out. Just…just think about the things I’ve said here, and reconsider how you comment in the future. Thank you.

yell at all the people in the comments that you want

i see you have a head start already

godspeed

aplatonicjacuzzi asked: Without giving away spoilers to the plot, what do you personally think Amber/Amazi-Girl should do? Do you think she should keep the incident to herself, or should she don her persona and be interviewed by Dorothy about her actions? Can she gain more or lose more by justifying her actions (for example, it was in self-defense, or the person had Danny in a dangerous situation)? If put in this situation, what would you do?

If I were put in this situation, I’d do the wrong thing.

lol @ this shit

HEY FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT CAN YOU PLEASE MAKE EVERYONE WHITE

Whoah. Whoah WHOAH… DC changed one of its characters to make them less white bread? Did I miss the news reports about giant wolves eating the sun and moon and a massive serpent encircling the Earth?
In all seriousness. If Wally wisecracks, wants to paint his symbol on his chair at the big table and is just a generally fun guy then he’s still Wally where it counts. 
Make Wally black, just don’t make him grim. 

well we were introduced to him as corpse, so
whoops
