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.
Today’s discussion topics:
- Are there any aspects of or experiences with allonormativity* that bug you?
- The head of a major network taps you to develop the first TV show with an openly asexual lead. What’s your show about?
Open discussion on any topic that is a asexuality or asexuality adjacent is always encouraged.
*”allosexual” is the asexual community’s word for people who are the inverses of themselves, those who experience sexual and romantic attraction towards others. So allonormativity is the word for the presumption in society that everybody in the world is like that. Yes, it’s tortured, but it’s the best language we’ve got at the moment.
