What is asexuality?
Asexuality is an orientation where an individual does not experience sexual attraction. However, asexuals may have romantic orientations. The lack of sexual attraction does not imply that they is always no sex drive. Asexuals have ranging libidos.
Is this some religious thing?
You are thinking of celibacy, which is the choice to not participate in sexual activities. Asexuality is no choice, just like being transgender or homosexual. In fact, lots of asexuals are frustrated with themselves and wish they could change when they first realize they are different.
Why would you want to be asexual?
As mentioned above....it isn’t a choice
How do you know if you’ve never tried?
Hey look at that raging bonfire over there. Go give those sizzling embers a nice hug. What? You don’t want to? Why not? Have you ever hugged hot coals before? No? Then how can you be so sure you won’t like it?
Your purpose is to reproduce!! It is the point of all life!! it would be a shame for you to not pass on those genes...
News flash: Humans have evolved to discover and do things in life other than insert a dick into a hole. If It’s your thing, great, if not, THERE IS MORE TO LIFE. If I’m a woman, I’m not just some incubator that spews out babies every nine months or so. If I’m a man, I am capable of doing more than running around making sure every last human egg has my genes to pass on.
You just need a good old lay
You just need a good old restraining order
What is romantic vs sexual orientation?
Most people don’t use these terms because romantic and sexual orientation typically match.
Romantic orientation: what gender(s) you are attracted to romantically and emotionally
Sexual orientation: what gender(s) you find sexually attractive.
Here’s an example of, let say, a panromantic asexual: someone who disregards gender and can be attracted to anyone romantically, but finds no gender sexually appealing.
Basically, replace “sexual” in any sexual orientation with “romantic”, and there is the romantic equivalent. So that brings us to Aromantics. Yup. No romantic attraction.
How can you possibly be aromantic??? Are you a robot :0 (And asexual seemed weird enough...)
FIRST OF ALL: Aromantics are not emotionless apathetic people who love no one. Basically, an aromantic just won’t really want a romantic relationship. But can aromantics have friends and family they love dearly and closely? OF COURSE! Aromantics are people too!
Their love means just as much as anyone else’s <3
Every human fucks.
well I guess little children aren’t humans then.
I’m pretty sure this is just another way for you to make yourself look “special”
UGH not this again. Bisexuals and pansexuals tend to get the same thing because of a very very very very small minority of people that take on a “queer” title because it is “cool”. They just seem like a large percentage because they flaunt it. No matter how annoying this gets, don’t make a comment like this one above. Because all of these orientations are very real, and 99% of people are not obnoxious attention whores. (Believe me, they annoy us too. Don’t let your hate out on the real deal)
Do you look down on sexual people?
Of course not! Though most asexuals won’t have sex, there is nothing wrong with a loving, sexual couple that wants to have it. Like in every group out there, I’m sure there are a few out there who claim their asexuality makes them better, but by no means to they represent all asexuals. Be who you are!
Why whine about not wanting sex? If you don’t want it, don’t have it. End of story. The rest of the LGBT+ community has the real issues.
Sadly, asexuals get this above comment from certain people in the LGBT+ community too often. (But not all of you! I know lots of you guys are very accepting!). It’s tough being rejected from society in general and the LGBT+ people out there. Here are some issues asexuals experience that other people in the same community go through:
denial that their sexuality exists
the idea that they have to be fixed
being harassed for simply being different
See? We aren’t so different. Asexuals deserve their place among the alphabet soup*!!!
*this means the LGBT+ community for those not up on lingo C;
How can an asexual have a sex drive?
If an asexual has a high libido that doesn’t make them not asexual. If you have a heterosexual with a super sex drive they won’t suddenly become sexually attracted to both genders. (however, as rare as it is, there are heteroromantics that are bisexual, meaning they find both sexes sexually attractive and pleasing, but would only form a romantic bond with the opposite sex.)
Asexual love is no less than sexual love. For a long time i made a mistake on this. I never thought i deserved someone - or deserve to be happy because I thought my love meant less
We do not need to be fixed. You do not fix homosexuals, left handed people, people that are double-jointed, or any other minority.
We live in a sex-centered world where a burger is best sold with the help of a model in a bikini. Sex equates to powers and virgins are nothing more than ignorant children that must be shunned.
“But asexuals?? people who don’t want sex? Oh, dear me! Even though your sexual activity has absolutely no effect on me as a person I will take this problem into my hands and help your poor pitiful soul. Try these hormones. Nothing? Here, let’s try corrective rape. I don’t care what it takes, you will get fucked and you will enjoy it.”
For you asexuals and any of you going through a similar issue:
This is not you being Broken, Incorrect, or Less.This is You doing whatever the heck makes You happy. This is You being your utterly awesome Self.
