Celibacy and asexuality are two very different things. Celibates are people who may have sexual attraction, but refrain from sexual activity, whereas asexuals have no sexual desires with any gender. Not all asexuals are celibate.

That picture is so confusing. It makes it look like asexuality is anti-heterosexuality or not having a gender or something. Then again, I have no idea what a picture of sexual attraction should look like. Just hope people aren’t getting a glimpse of it & get the wrong idea.
Just an idea. Reblog if you’re asexual/ace spectrum, then go check out other people who have reblogged this. Send them an ask, follow if you like them. Make connections. Build community. This will help strengthen many asexual blogs so that when the revolution occurs we can rise up and claim what’s rightfully ours.
Here is a list of random words that have more than one definition:
In short, any argument against people using the term asexual to name a valid sexual orientation simply because it is also used to describe a specific type of reproduction is inherently bullshit.
Me: *playing game*
Vagina: I want to breed
Vagina: let me breeeeed
Me: I said no
Vagina: c’moooon. I want to bear children.
Me: I don’t want to. I’m busy.
Vagina: ugh. Come. On. I’m gonna keep annoying you.
Me: fine. Do you have anyone in mind?
Me: exactly. Now shut up.
Vagina: I want to breed though.
Me: I don’t want to. I don’t have anyone in mind, neither do you, nor do I have interest in these… things… I don’t want to SPAWN a child.
Vagina: Touch me.
Me: I’m busy gaming
Any one else terrified that this has more notes than almost anything else in the asexual tag, and most of them are supporting this statement.
Can we possibly get more notes on this than they did because this is one of the highest notes ive seen on the tags and it shows ace people a really depressing idea that there will always be more ignorant and intolerant people than allies and that would’ve been so damaging to me when first realizing I was ace.
tw: ignorance; acephobia/aphobia
No no that op doesn’t go far enough.
Are you happy, all the time? No? You are not gay then.
Lesbians? Are you from the isle of Lesbos? Don’t be an idiot
Bisexuals? Are you a plant with multiple sex characterics? I didn’t think so. Plants don’t read.
And Straight, what does that even mean? Do you walk in laser like lines? Have incredibly erect posture?
Talking about asexual crushes to people off the internet is so unnecessarily hard. I explain how it’s basically how I find every aspect of someone so lovable that I just want to sit on a couch and snuggle with them all day and watch movies with them and hold hands and talk and talk and talk. And then they go: “But what happens after that?”
And I go: “That’s it. Me, a couch, snuggle.” It stumps them. They honestly can not picture that situation not escalating into something sexual, and if it doesn’t, not being disappointed about it or let-down. That snuggling on a couch is literally the high point of my affections is just…alien to them.
And then I get the question: “But what do asexuals do on dates?” like apparently everyone only has sex on their dates, each and every one of them, and by that point I just want to bark: “WE LIGHT OFFERINGS TO SATAN.”
It is weird that so many people apparently can’t find any inherent enjoyment in nonsexual intimacy at all.
Like, I get sex is important & really enjoyable for a lot of people, but is that really the only pleasure you get out of a relationship? Is doing anything else with your partner nothing but a waste of time if it doesn’t end in sex?
And yet we’re the sad ones for being able to totally be content with doing an array of things with people that don’t solely rely on sex……go figure.
And you really should say that satan thing next time someone asks you about dating….you know….just for the hell of it.
Definitely the way Asexuals feel. For me so anyway!
I remember seeing this posted on AVEN. It’s such an excellent way of explaining it, but I don’t think it should be seen as the one-size-fits-all asexual’s perspectives on sex since some of us are capable of enjoying it & for some of us there really is a fear factor to sex. It’s definitely something to communicate one on one with your partner before looking up your own answers to try to describe them.
Also, I don’t think this perspective should be thought of as being exclusive to the asexual community.
Mom: So do you two share cooking duties?
Me: Actually, Idra does most of the cooking.
Mom: Oh! So she’s like the woman?
Mom: And you’re the asexual?

Okay, so I’m not asexual at all so I can’t exactly relate to or understand the frustration, but I’m pretty certain that this is what people who are asexual are talking about when they say that they feel completely alienated by the expectation that everyone needs sex all the time.
For fuck’s sake, this is the fucking WEATHER CHANNEL.
Just in response to that article……
No, no we couldn’t survive without sex.
I’m a 21 year old who never had sex. I was concerned about this, so I told my gyn about my virginity status after asking me if I was sexually active. He asked me if I planned on having sex any time soon to fix this.
I said no.
He gave me 2 more weeks to live.
Really, HOW IS THIS FUCKING NEWS?!?
I have to present a powerpoint to the GSA explaining asexuality. I already did this last semester & I rehearsed for that one, but still my anxiety kind of got the best of me at one point. I don’t even have time to rehearse for it this semester but at least I know what I’m talking about. I just hope I keep myself more composed this time.
Any tips on calming down while in front of a room full of people?
EDIT: I wanted to say thanks to everyone who gave advice but I can’t seem to reblog their replies for some reason :(
So if you’re reading, thanks you guys
Note to self: find better “thanks” gifs
