When a person says, “What’s the point in even coming out as asexual, whose business is it that you don’t have sex,” I think that you aren’t considering the social implications of not desiring sex.

It’s a story about how I got to realize that I am aromantic - so basically it’s a self-discovery story. That might sound kind of boring… it’s nothing exquisite. But I started doodling it, and before I knew it, I was finished! This is kind of a big deal. I hardly ever finish anything.
I don’t care if you share this or use the images. Giving me credit would be nice, but it’s more important that you please remember the main message. C:
Criticism is always welcome, as long as you’re polite and constructive.

The asexual spectrum in a legitimate thing. People on the spectrum cannot help how they experience attraction and experience it in a completely different way than the rest of society. It’s just like being homosexual, bisexual, pansexual, polysexual, or heterosexual - it’s not something that can be changed, not something people do for attention, not something people lie about, AND (most importantly) not something people want to be demeaned for.
Asexuals don’t have hormone problems and they are not slut-shamers.
Demisexuals are not “special snowflakes” inventing definitions of attraction just for no reason.
Gray-asexuals are not fence-sitters who need to choose a side.
If you find any of these identities stupid or laughable, then you DON’T GET IT, and instead of writing off a valuable part of the queer community, you should give aces your respect by educating yourself on the different identities involved.
Talk to an asexual person. Look on the AVEN forums or wiki. Use google. Follow some asexual tumblrs. Just do SOMETHING to stop the asexual hate and alienation.
It’s seriously not that hard to be an ally.

There we go. I’ve continued the sassy coming out ace card to extend to more orientations. These are intended as a joke, but they might actually come in handy if you’re being questioned about your orientation and you need a sassy retort.
[Note: I’ve also edited the asexual one for optimum readability. If you are visually impaired, I would greatly appreciate your feedback on the legibility and readability of these comps. I wanna make sure everyone can enjoy my designs, not only those with good vision. So your feedback is a big help!]

so many topics to preach about. hm
it just bugs me, i guess. normally it’s something that i can roll with because ~EDUCATION OPPORTUNITY~, but the event described earlier was with someone who i previously explained asexuality to. though i must have done a terrible job because that shit happened today. (HONESTLY, THOUGH. WHAT RELEVANCE TO THE CONVERSATION WAS IT?? UNLESS ANYONE ON THAT SKYPE CALL WAS ALSO ASEXUAL.)
to be fair, i understand that asexuality is something that a lot of people don’t know about, mainly because ace “visibility” is like, next to nothing—don’t even get me started on that “passing privilege” bullshit, OH MY GOD—and because of internet magic, a lot of people are now learning that there is a name for the way that they’ve been feeling. and that there are others who feel like that as well!
that and the fact that it’s something that people have a hard time grasping for whatever fucking reason. ha. haha. if i could tell you the amount of times i’ve heard, “wait… do you mean asexual reproduction?” and “it’s just a phase, you’ll meet someone eventually”…. ಠ__ಠ
don’t tell me who i am and how i feel, thanks. if i later decide that i wrongly misinterpreted my romantic or sexual attraction, then i will own up to it. AND POLITELY ASK YOU TO CHOKE DOWN THE URGE TO SAY, “I TOLD YOU SO”

being asexual and being aromantic are two completely different things that sometimes come together because a person identifies as both.
being asexual does not mean i don’t like being in a relationship. it means i don’t want to bang anyone. although i do happen to be aromantic as well.
and while i’m open with my asexuality, please do not introduce me as asexual to other people. because like all other sexualities, mine does not define me. it is just another part of who i am. (also it’s my identity so what business is it of yours to tell others??? especially if i’m right fucking there)
