A quick PSAstaff -
Hey folks! We've been noticing a few posts have some script code injected into them lately.
Waterfall's post renderer automatically disables scripts, so the majority of users are safe. However, if you make a post and see some script tags in there after hitting submit, particularly pointing to a domain starting with "dom" and ending with ".xyz", we recommend you run a full virus scan on your computer or phone as you're likely infected. If you don't have an antivirus, we recommend Windows Defender and MalwareBytes for Windows. Stick to known brands for your phone; unfortunately we don't have a specific recommendation there. Additionally, you should uninstall any browser extensions that you don't recognise, don't use often, or seem suspicious.
We also strongly recommend you check Windows is up to date, and in the case of Windows 10, on the latest feature edition (1909).

Things seem to be looking up when he finally finds his fated companion in Aidan. One problem—Aidan’s asexual, and Brandon’s now confused. Who doesn’t want sex? Aidan, that’s who. And Brandon hasn’t got a clue how to make someone love him without it.
It's going to take some serious self-examination, acceptance, and some really good cake for Brandon to make his way into Aidan’s heart.”
I guess I’ll have to read this djsjsnak

aros and aces!!!
what's your opinion on kissing???
im aro + grey ace and soft quick kisses are ok (ex kisses ud get from a family member)
but making out is 100% unappealing. i don't want to see it and i especially don't want to hear it (though that might overlap with some weird sensory bullshit I have)
Whats up I'm gray-ace and I want a top to kiss me in the back seat of their car rn thanks for asking
im an aro allo and kissing and making out sound really appealing
Straight up aromantic here and tbh, it depends on the day. Some days (most days) I really really enjoy kissing and make outs and the whole wazoo, some days I prefer quick cheek/forehead kisses and there have even been one or two days where I didn't want any of it at all.
Mostly I'm all aboard the makeout trans tho, so uhhhh... seconding plum XD (tho car makeouts can get awkward, I prefer couch cuddles+kissing)
Greyace and quoiro.
Makeouts seem bleh to me, but that could be simply because I have very little experience. As it is, seems kinda pointless.
Little smooches and cheek pecks etc are nice -- they have a point, which is... Idk, communicating "you're dear to me"?
ace and arospec
i like smooches and would probably be fine with short kisses on the lips but making out sounds.. wet and uncomfortable.
I’m ace and aro-spec :)
I like kissing my partner but mouth kissing isn’t really my favorite activity. Pecks and smooches are great, making out is ok but personally I don’t get a lot out of it, it’s mostly because they like it and I like to make them happy. I can’t lose myself in it like my partner can so eventually I’m always like ok this is getting a bit boring now can we do something else?? Also I’m always really focused on trying to coordinate what we’re both doing so it can be a little tiring. It’s much easier when I’m kissing their neck or something and only my mouth is involved :p
grey-ace here :) p much all kisses are fun for me, though not french kisses. not keen on slobbery kisses either (unless they're from a doggo)
Aroace here and I've literally never considered kissing?? It's never crossed my mind. This is the first time I've been asked to think about them and I don't know what to think. I've never considered engaging in one lol.
another aroace here! Making out is super unappealing to me, and if you ever try to kiss me on the lips I'll probably slap you. I've considered cheek/forehead pecks but I don't really know. They all tend to make me uncomfortable when I think about them but I think I'd have to meet the people I love (my qpps!) in person before considering non-lips pecks. And obviously it would depend on their comfort as well!
Aros deserve to have representation outside of the asexual community,
Aros deserve to not be asked "and what else" when describing their identity,
Aros deserve to create and use terms such as "neu" and "aplatonic" without rampant criticism from non-aros,
Aros deserve to be apart of other communities based on their other attractions,
Aros deserve their own space, their own narratives, and this should not be boiled down to discourse.

What is your opinion on blogs themed around discourse on this site?
I have never seen a blog dedicated to discourse that was operating in good faith and not just in it to stroke their ego and/or dick at what a great debater they are, apparently forgetting that the point of a debate is to formulate logical arguments to change the other party's mind and not just scream and shout and say "anyway if you don't agree/don't do x you're just [racist/sexist/a bad person/insert as applicable] and that's that"
I'm sure I'll get "that's not what discourse is though" messages and sure, it's not, but when I hear "discourse blog", that's what comes to mind because I have never seen one that isn't just a thinly veiled attempt to have an excuse to be angry about stuff. There are genuine social issues that need discussing, but I personally consider the approach they tend to use as counterproductive because shouting someone down is just going to reinforce them against your position rather than make them more amenable to it. It's why I was a bit of a shitbag five years ago - calm explanations that make you think about the new information serve a LOT better than being shouted at, which diverts all your mental capacity towards defending yourself rather than thinking.
So in short, if we're using the Tumblr definition of discourse I would really rather not but I can't stop people I guess.
I'd much rather Waterfall's community works to redefine discourse blogs to be explanatory rather than accusatory in nature.
imo discourse blogs have 0 purpose on waterfall bc the community is so small and there aren't any creeps here yet. I mean on tumblr I could just say "dont interact with me if you're a pedophile or a nazi" and people might call me a discourse blog. So I mean this makes sense to me
