Everyone who is ace or an ally of aces, please sign this petition to the producers of the FOX TV show “House M.D.” regarding the most recent episode of the show in which they egregiously misrepresented asexuality. After you’ve signed it, please pass this on. Thanks!
Guys, I know I’ve reblogged a lot of shit asking you to sign petitions or whatever recently but this is different. This is about people invalidating me and wanting to fix me, then teaching everyone who’s watching that it’s okay to do that.
It’s not. And unlike gay or lesbian or trans* characters, I don’t have anyone else to look to. This is it. This is what I’ve been represented as in mainstream media.
Which makes it infinitely worse, because now every time I say “I’m asexual” to someone who’s seen House, I won’t have anything else to point to and go “no, it’s really more like this” and so when they say “no, you just haven’t been properly diagnosed yet” they’ll think that they’re speaking truth and I won’t have any way to defend myself.
So please sign this. Don’t let people get away with erasing asexuality’s legitimacy when we don’t yet have a voice with which to fight back.
I’m sorry I reblog so many petitions. There’s just a lot to be angry about.
