Sunday 23rd to Sunday 29th October is Asexual Awareness Week. This is a subject close to my heart, so I thought I’d give you all a very brief rundown of asexuality from my point of view.

  • Asexual people are not sexually attracted to other people.
  • Asexual people can still have high sex drives, active sex lives and romantic relationships, though not all do – it’s all down to communication.
  • Asexual people can be any gender, and anyone who tries to tell me that all asexuals are women will be mercilessly slapped around the head with a fish by yours truly.

I feel like those are the most important points.

I’ll also be auctioning off some ace flag handwarmers to raise some cash for AAW to buy a documentary, and posting three comics for Ace Awareness Week instead of two, just because of reasons.

And now to you, the commentators! Please join in and leave comments. I want to know whether or not you identify as asexual, and why. I want to hear your funny stories about being ace. And I want to hug you all, because people assume you’re straight, and then they assume you’re gay, and really, they should just be assuming that you’re awesome.
