14 Reasons Why You Need To Better Understand Asexuality

| Right | June 8, 2020

Dear readers,

A couple of weeks ago, we ran an LGBT+ roundup for Harvey Milk day. It was pointed out to us in the comments that we forgot a very important component of the ‘plus’ part of LGBT+, and we would like to apologize for that and make it right.

As the following collection of stories will make starkly clear, there is a large misunderstanding of asexuality and demisexuality, and what it is. This issue became so prevalent that those affected had to design their own flag to help encourage representation:

Black:  Asexuality.
Grey: Grey-Asexuality and Demisexuality.
White: Non-asexual partners and allies.
Purple: Community.

So please understand the frustration of asexual people everywhere as you read this selection of 13 stories from our archives:

 

Finally Off The Hook – Educate one, change the life of another. Score!

Godless And Sexless – For those who don’t believe in sex.

Unsolicited Hookups Really Get My Goat – If she had to choose between him and the goat, she’d still choose the goat.

Graded Ace-Plus – Apparently, asexual = no privacy.

Needs Some Atolerance – Nah… you just haven’t found the right person yet!

Opposites Attract Confusion – “Cute” is not a reason to change your entire way of life.

Astrip Club – Now hear us out, we have this amazing idea…

Frying Pansexual – Asexuality, but now with added iron!
