YouTube is not just an amateur video site. The third most trafficked site on the Internet is among of a handful of mediums building the careers of independent artists who are making over six figures a year by just uploading videos to the internet.

do you ever feel like you love a character more than their own writers do
I think we need to clone him for future generations.
Why? I’m pretty sure that when Death comes for him, Christopher Lee will be waiting with a knife, and I’m not betting on Death in that fight.
Are you kidding? Mr. Lee and Death are old drinking buddies.
Christopher Lee just stabs Death and there’s a beat before Death goes “HEEEEYYYY how the hell have you been, you old bastard” and hugs him, the knife still buried in his back.
Seriously, it kills me when I see people hold scientists up as pinnacles of logic and reason.
Because one time the professor I was interning for got punched in the face by another professor, because mine got the funding, and told the other professor his theory was stupid.
This same professor told me to throw rocks to scare the “stupid fucking crabs” into moving so we could count them properly.
this is one of the best comments this post has recieved
I have witnessed:
Two professors hiding around a corner and snickering, “Shhh, here she comes!” While a female professor approached and, when she finally found them, she proceeded to scream while pointing from one to the other, “You! I called your office but you weren’t there! So I tried to call YOUR office to figure out where HE was but YOU weren’t there!”
Two grad students standing outside a closed and locked door yelling, “Come out of the damn office. You haven’t left for days. If you didn’t have a couch in there I’d be concerned as to where you were sleeping!”
A religious studies professor apologizing for being late to class because, “security stopped me because I’m dressed like a hobbit”
Watched a professor snort the results of my experiment to determine if I had the right final compound.
Two archeology professors toss priceless fossilized teeth back and forth in an attempt to figure out who is smarter by “guessing the type of tooth and species of animal before it lands”
Multiple fully degreed individuals throw dry ice at one another in an attempt to be first to use the lab/get that piece of equipment/or change the iPod song.
A genetics professor build furniture out of stacks of paper and planks of wood because she is that far behind in grading papers/responding. One of the impromptu furniture pieces housed a fish tank.
I could go on but I think that covers the larger portion of the insanity…
Every time it comes around on my dash, it gets better.
- I have had a professor buy a huge fuckoff bottle of rum during fieldwork in Costa Rica and let the undergrads get wasted because “you’re not underage in Costa Rica and we’ll be up all night with the bats anyway!”
- Same professor hung a bat from her headlamp and wore it as a decoration for an entire night.
- A whole swarm of older women - and these are women with PhDs and world-renown bat experts, the bigwigs - all, to a woman, go to the formal charity dinner at an international research symposium in Toronto in late October dressed in skimpy Batgirl costumes. Because Halloween was that weekend, you see.
- At a different conference, a professor get blackout drunk and pass out on the side of the road.
- “Yeah, we have to say we did it properly for the grant but to be really honest, Miracle-gro works better.”
- Teaching lab: we had liquid nitrogen for a demo, and after class the professor, the other TA, and I spent a good two hours freezing and breaking things in it.
a chemistry class begins with 30 students nine months later just six of us left sitting on tables dipping paper into contaminated chemicals to see what happens when we burn it teacher making idle suggestions while he marks our work
"go to the fume hood thing, yeah now put some potassium in chlorine" can i burn the results sir? "fuck it sure whatever its tainted anyway"
The prof I’m working for just asked me if I knew how to pick a lock, and when I responded “yes” she replied, “see, this is why I hire the former delinquents instead of the suck-ups. You’re actually useful.”
I then let her into her office.
I just put gold on fucking EVERYTHING.
perfection. this is why science is best.
I swore while talking to my humanities instructor. When I looked sheepish she said “hell, swear all you want! I’m an adjunct professor, I don’t care”
since my little post about being autochorissexual has inexplicably exploded 260+ notes in the past couple of days (seriously what the heck happened here), i think maybe a follow-up post is in order.
i did not invent the word autochorissexual. Anthony F. Bogaert did. he’s the guy who literally wrote the book on asexuality. Dr. Bogaert is not himself asexual but is one of the few sciencey people doing sciencey research on people who are, so that’s cool. i got the word autochorissexual from his article Asexuality and Autochorissexualism (Identity-Less Sexuality) which is, alas, now behind a $40 paywall. i’ll paraphrase what i remember of it.
in the course of his asexuality research, Dr. Bogaert identified more than one hundred women who—all independently—described a sexual interest in sex itself but could not imagine themselves as active participants in it. the article deals only with women; i don’t know whether Bogaert observed anything similar among people who aren’t women.Bogaert describes autochorissexualism as a target-oriented paraphilia, one in which, specifically, the usual target sequence “I am attracted to [that person]” does not include the “I”. many of these women said they did masturbate while thinking about other people having sex. they did not identify as voyeurs because they did not think of themselves as observers. they considered themselves non-entities in sex, and were turned off by the thought of themselves participating in the act even as a passive observer. some women mentioned preferring porn/erotica that focused on male participants because they were less likely to personally identify with a man.
so, if anyone wants to call tumblr bullshit on this word, take it to Brock University.
also, here is the AVEN thread where Siggy links to Bogaert’s article, which is how i heard of it.
I haven’t seen the post this is referring to ,but I have read the Bogaert paper, so here’s a couple notes about the Bogaert Autochorissexualism article:
1. It’s less than two pages total. While academic papers are sometimes short, they’re almost never that short.
2. His evidence is literally one study that found that many asexual people masturbate, one study that commented that some asexual people may have fantasies (with no information on content), and about three quotes from a single AVEN thread on the topic of masturbation and asexuality.
3. This was also all based on data from previous studies on different subjects; he didn’t actually do any research on this point yet to prove or disprove it.
(I’m not sure where you’re getting your description with this survey of women from - that’s definitely not this study)
It’s really not a research paper. It’s a “what if” paper - basically saying, “what if we conceptualize it this way?” There’s no evidence for whether or not it’s an accurate model; it’s more just introducing it as an indirect invitation for someone else to maybe do more research on it later to see if it’s a valid concept or not.
Although it reflects some themes seen in asexual communities, this particular phrasing is drawn more from Bogaert’s head than from any existing asexual discourse, tbh.
(As for my personal thoughts on the theory iteslf, see the comments in the thread under the name “cleander”)
(oh and if anyone wants to see a copy of the actual paper please message me)
oops. i’ve reacquired a copy of the paper, and you’re right, this is not the paper that mentions women only. i seem to have mixed this paper with another one in my memory. i apologize. now if only i could remember where i saw that paper…
true, Bogaert in this paper does not provide any evidence for the accuracy of the model he describes, but for my purposes i find his model very useful. his description of “identity-less sexuality” rings very accurate to me. this concept proved a huge help to me in determining that the feeling i have which resembles sexual attraction is not, in fact, a vector of sexual interest from me to another person, which is what i understand sexual attraction to be, and so reading Bogaert’s conception of autochorissexualism led me to my identity as asexual. i hope these posts will help other readers in similar ways.
as of typing, this post and the previous one (linked above) have a combined 658 notes in three days. at least half of the reblogs are tagged “omg THIS!!” or “interesting”. if the autochorissexual concept helps them, i’m glad to have introduced it.
"the feeling i have which resembles sexual attraction is not, in fact, a vector of sexual interest from me to another person”
Thank You for perfectly putting this into words for me.

inspired most recently by this Asexual Advice post (and all the others like it)
“I seem to find myself attracted to fictional male characters. Am I REALLY asexual, or am I just a heterosexual with a low sex drive?”
i had the same problem for years, anon, and eventually came to the conclusion that i am asexual. more specifically, i am autochorissexual (a term coined by Bogaert, literally meaning “self-less sexual”), meaning i am sexually attracted to sex that does not involve me.
fictional (cis) dudes are perfect for this because
- being fictional, they can never touch me.
- being (cis) dudes, they are as unlike (cis female) me as possible.
i’m not literally threatened by their existence, and i’m not likely to identify too closely with their physical arousal in ways that might upset me.
TA-DA. NOW YOU KNOW WHY AN ASEXUAL’S BLOG IS FULL OF EXPLICIT SLASH.
EDIT: this post suddenly became super popular months later? if you haven’t already, see follow-up post here.
what month comes after september???
after that, at 61 days, is the longest month of the year, christmas
I just realized that the lack of acceptance for asexuals is literally the dumbest thing.
Like, you can’t handle the thought of two dudes kissing? Okay you’re dumb and terrible whatever.
But you can’t handle the idea… Of someone… Not kissing anyone? What are you worried about? They’re gonna eat too much mac n cheese?? Draw too many dinosaurs??? Tell me

- tell capitalists you’re gonna fix the economy by turning it off and then on again
