Re: Michael OI 8-)

As to the rest, your learning.... Asexuality is the lack of sexual attraction, not ability....some of us are continuing to show the uninformed members of the public we are the same as them bar just one thing (and not the Jay Z type of 99 problems).... Although I havn't "wobbled" any one f...

Re: I'm making a portraits collab for AAW and want your help!

Thanks! Those are interesting points and I agree with some of it too. Even though I think research on that demographic of asexuals would be nice, I'm not a researcher. I'm more focused on how to reach out to older self-identified asexuals (i.e. older asexuals who acknowledge that they're asexual) an...

Re: Michael OI 8-)

I was just informed that we're changing the definition to "An asexual person is someone who has no libido, is sex-repulsed, has never had sex and does not ever want to have sex, does not experience sexual attraction, and does not have any desire for sex." Some additional qualifiers: they ...

Re: Michael OI 8-)

That's what I thought at first too, PiF. But Michael made a good point. Most of the asexual people don't have children since they skew young anyway; neither do they want children. And a lot of asexuals do complain about their parents/family. A lot. However, I disagree with Michael on the fact that m...

Re: I do have sympathy for the lgbt when it comes to asexuals

when asked should asexuals identify as queer...most agree No as most asexuals are straight..no matter how you now try and twist the term queer to fit your personal agender , away from its recognised term Also on a purely factual note, according to the recent AVEN census (Section 2.1, on page 7), mo...

Re: Remind me Never EVER look at AVEN again!

Too bad about the OP's experience, but she should have known better than to get into such a situation in the first place. How so? The OP liked the guy and said they had been spending time with them outside of class. During one of those times, the situation turned sexual which left her confused for ...

Re: I'm making a portraits collab for AAW and want your help!

Thanks flergalwit. I would like to get those of you here on Apositive to participate if any of you want. I feel like this forum skews older than many of the other online communities and I've always wanted to see more representation of older asexuals (age 30+). Also, to give everyone a better example...
