Asexual Awareness Week 2011
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.
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.
