The asexual community is a terrible place to hide...
queenieofaces: This post has been cross-posted to The Asexual Agenda. A while back there was this big kerfuffle on tumblr* about how aces are secretly harmful to LGB folks. One of the main arguments was that LGB folks have internalized heterosexism, and thus use the asexual community to hide from their sexuality. Now, I’m not really interested in getting into the whole “are aces harmful to...
asexualhelp: lets do some basic vocabulary and key words to help you identify yourself! there is something called the “asexual spectrum” many different sexualities fit under this umbrella term aside from asexuality, like demisexuality. many asexuals do not approve of the term “asexual spectrum.” this is because other sexualities stand alone, but asexuality is expected to have a spectrum because...
nat-attack: I’m doing a survey about asexuality for my honors project. it could potentially be published in a research journal, so please please take a few minutes and fill it out. if you could complete the survey/reblog it I would be eternally grateful it’s for anyone who currently or at some point identified as being under the ace umbrella ...

livvialove: Fun Facts: An asexual is still able to have a relationship. Not needing or outright wanting sex does not mean you cannot fall in love or be in a relationship. An asexual can still have a consenting sexual relationship with their partner.

greenchestnuts: “Aromantic asexuals are straight!” That makes very little sense. Aromantic asexuals are about as straight as bisexuals: as a group, we have no particular gender preferences/we experience similar attraction to members of all genders, but some individuals may be more likely to form…
aceupmysleve: “ Asexuality is about lack of attraction to other people, not about lack of activity.” “The distinction between asexuality and celibacy or abstinence is that asexuality is not a choice. Asexual people can choose to have sex and still remain asexual.” “Some asexuals may decide only to form relationships with a certain type of person for some intellectual reason, or it could be a...
butwebothknowthatsnotquitetrue: friendly reminder that being asexual is totally normal. it’s just a sexual identity/preference, like any other sexual identity/preference. it is okay to be asexual (graysexual, etc). it is not okay for others to make you feel ashamed/freakish/unwanted/or unloveable because you are asexual. you are beautiful. it’s your life. don’t worry about what they...
heartoffeathers: I’m doing my term paper on Asexuals because being an asexual I feel like our voices are not really heard nor that we are actually understood. I’m struggling though with finding solid information. If you’re asexual and can help me in any way please message me! Thank you!!!!

fezzes-and-fish-custard: Asexuality is something that doesn’t get a great deal of publicity. If someone tells you they are asexual, DO NOT:- Say ‘it’s just a phase, you’ll find a boy/girl soon’.

Which is where I found the decade-old Furry Code 1.3 (apparently a...

Coming out as asexual
swankivy: Anonymous asked you: I wanted to ask about comming out as asexual. I’m a minor and live with my family if that helps. :) Thanks Well, anon, coming out as asexual (like any kind of coming out) is often difficult and sometimes unpredictable. Since I don’t know the circumstances of your family, whether they tend to be supportive, how accepting they might be of non-heterosexual...

as-fine-as-dandelions: I came out as asexual to my mom tonight. It was kind of weird and tense but she’s really awesome and understanding. I was pretty shaky by the end of it but now she knows so it’s not a Big Secret anymore. I think she always knew but just didn’t have a word for it. Then she joked that my sister got ALL of the sexual hormones by accident. XD My mom is the best. I’m a little...
indigoneutrino: Here’s the answer for the anon who asked yesterday. Thank you so much for the question, but I didn’t realise I’d hit post limit so when I tried to publish it got deleted! Here it is now: Big fan of your blog; what does it mean to be a demiromantic asexual and what’s it like? In its simplest terms, it means I don’t experience sexual attraction, but may develop romantic...

witchofneigh: The best part of being asexual (for me) is being able to look at people and go “Hot damn they’re attractive” and not have any of that annoying sexual attraction. Just pure aesthetic appreciation over here.
