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.
Welcome to the monthly(ish) asexuality thread. I usually try to do these on Wednesdays, but it’s been a while since I’ve done one at all and I’m not at work today, so I thought I’d carpe diem. According to the largely pointless taxonomy I introduced at the beginning of the year, this is a month to focus on asexual identity, but whatever. Any well-intentioned comments about any aspects of asexual identity, experience, representation, or related topics are welcome. I’ll offer a couple of topic ideas below, but please feel free to start threads about your own concerns and issues.
- Best and worst parts about the asexual/aromantic experience?
- Any aspects of allosexual (i.e. not asexual) culture you find particularly baffling or vexing.
