Asexuality Thread

We’re back with another asexuality thread. According to the Asexuality Visibility and Education Network, “An asexual person is a person who does not experience sexual attraction.” But it’s more complicated than that. Asexuality is a broad spectrum, and anyone who identities with or has experience on any part of it is welcome to contribute here. No one is actually forbidden from contributing (because I hate that), but keep it on topic and respectful. I’m going to throw out a couple of potential discussion topics below, but please, please don’t feel constrained by them.

  • (Stolen from the LGBT+ thread, who stole it from Women+) Have you ever traveled alone? Would you like to? What kind of arrangements would make you consider it? Where would you go and where would you avoid? Would your goal be to meet people along the way, or just to enjoy the experience?
  • Are there any prominent characters in media you’d like to see presented as explicitly asexual?
