"I was trying to create a movement that was open to anybody and everybody," says Alana, now a 43-year-old management consultant and artist from Toronto. In 1993, she was finishing an undergraduate degree in statistics at Carleton University in Ottawa, and she'd never had sex or anything close to a boyfriend. Sometimes she blamed her appearance: short, slightly overweight, eczema splotches. Often she felt like she'd passed through adolescence without learning the unspoken rules of a complex game that everyone else understood intuitively.
Quote:
Alana built a simple, all-text website— Alana's Involuntary Celibacy Project—and while it's long gone, she and a few others shared their memories with me, and Alana sent me a packet of old posts.

"accidentally" LoL is the female version of "dindu nuffin" LoL

<<For a few years after founding the project, she says, she was celibate, but she gradually became more socially confident. By then living in Toronto, she started to date men as well as women, read queer liberation theory, and explore polyamory. At this point in the story, Alana hesitates, obviously uncomfortable. "You know, in grade school, the cooties thing?" she ventures. "You don't want to hang out with someone less cool than you are, in case you catch the uncoolness.">>
Just like always, I felt in her words the unpleasant smell of entitlement.
