It’s the time of year when I ask people to go take the #Ace Community Survey!
Emphasis on the community part — people who do not currently or have not ever identified as ace are welcome to take part if they are interested & in fact having some comparative data from non-ace participants is helpful for the survey teams data analysis
@Lady i would definitely not count sports, the others i think the ambiguity is semi-intentional in that they consider the important factor to be that the person conceptualized it as hurting themselves (which is not how most people conceptualize tattoos)
@Satsuma i would be hesitant saying “most people” there; some people very intentionally DO get tattoos because it is a socially‐acceptable form of self‐injury
probably not “most” people who get tattoos but it’s not uncommon
@Lady yeah that was the point i was trying to make — if they conceptualize it as self injury than they should answer yes, it they just want a tattoo they should say no
@Satsuma i don’t think anyone will ever phrase a self‐harm question in a way that i will like though; i think the question of “harm” is very mired in questions of normative expectations / assumptions / being a productive citizen
