Misapprehended Objectives

Whenever aces talk about the hardships of being ace or the desire for more recognition and some allosexual responds with “Unless you’re an LGBT asexual, you don’t have it as bad as LGBT people!  You’re not oppressed!” and so on, what it makes me think of is this scene from Pirates of the Caribbean where the characters are sailing a stolen vessel through a thunderstorm, and Will Turner exclaims in panic and frustration, “How can we sail to an island that nobody can find, with a compass that doesn’t work?”

And Mr. Gibbs responds, “Aye, the compass doesn’t point north.  But we’re not trying to find north, are we?”
