Anyway -- my question is, how many of you agree that America and/or the Western World is currently a culture of hypersexualization? If you do think so, does it bother you? And most importantly -- do you think there's any hope of it reversing?
I know we've had a bunch of posts here in the last week or so about too many of us in this community bitching, but this profoundly bothers me, on an almost daily basis now. I'm just curious about other asexuals' opinions.
PS: What is your view on slash in fandom? As a friendship purist and individual who is severely adverse to hypersexualization, it constantly bothers me, since I'm involved so much on internet things, many of them being fandom related, and I'm bombarded with it constantly. I see it as another form of this cultural mindset that the majority of people fall into, and it's sheer excess online is mind boggling to me. Most people I've encountered are actively pro-slash, and I've mostly come up against total opposition with my uncommon defense of pure friendship. It just struck me that perhaps I'd find a bit more open-mindedness/understanding here.
