Asexuality Awareness Week 2013

October 20-26

I’d like to take this time to clarify a couple of things about asexuality:

  1. A person who is asexual doesn’t feel sexual attraction towards other people. This is no different than how a homosexual would have a sexual attraction towards a member of the same sex.
  2. Being asexual does not mean you never have sex, some asexuals have a sex drive.
  3. Many Asexuals have a romantic-orientation. Ex. Asexual, but hetero-romantic 
  4. An asexual is not someone who  ”can’t get laid” or is “hiding from their actually sexuality.” 
  5. Asexuality isn’t the same as abstinence. 
  6. Asexuality is one of the most controversial sexual orientations. Some researchers think that it shouldn’t be considered a sexual orientation. 
  7. In 2004, it was determined that approximately 1 in 100 adults are asexual, that’s 1% of the world’s population.
  8. "A 2012 study published in Group Processes & Intergroup Relations reports there is more prejudice, dehumanization and discrimination toward asexuals than toward other sexual minorities, such as gay men, lesbians and bisexuals. Both homosexual and heterosexual people thought of asexuals as not only cold, but also animalistic and unrestrained.” -[x]

So just remember that you are not restricted to the limitations that society has placed on your sexuality. 

If only we could forget about our ridiculous obsession with labelling and just continue life as human beings, equal and accepted. 

It’s time asexuals were accepted.

Thank you for reading.
