fuck you House, ASEXUALS ARE REAL.
I am filled with so much fucking SNARL about my orientation is real after watching the latest ep of House. I was pretty much only watching it for the Dr. Parker (aka Asian chick doctor) and Dr. Chase (aka hot blond Australian) but I'm giving up on it now because seriously, I am just FULL OF SCREAMING RAGE.
Wilson treats a woman who comes into the clinic and IDs as asexual. His reaction is to go "I don't know what box to tick for that" at her and then later tell House about it, then make a bet on whether the woman and her husband are both actually asexual or there's something wrong with them. House drags the guy in for tests and finds out that he has a tumor near his pituitary gland and that's what's causing his asexuality. And then it turns out that the woman isn't actually asexual but has been faking it because she loves the guy and wanted to spend her life with him.
I am filled with so much hate. Seriously. They finally have asexual chars in a mainstream TV show, a fairly popular one at that, only to go "SURPRISE! They're not actually asexual! Sex is a basic human drive that everyone feels! You're either lying or medically sick if you don't want to have sex."
The way they treat it in-show is terrible. House basically says that Wilson wants to believe in asexuality but knows it's unrealistic, House is a jackass of course, Dr. Parker insists that sex is a basic need as well and at the end, everyone's all happy to have "disproved" asexuality.
Some days I just want to smack fictional people right in the face and then go hunt down the writers and rant at them about erasing people's sexuality.
Fuck you. I'm asexual, I'm not deluded and I'm not sick. This is a valid orientation and it's MINE.
