Like most of those claiming to be asexual are feamle between 17-24?...okay get it

O how I missed the Strawman coming up, I bet he felt left out and forgotten

Easy to resolve by simply going into those forums such as phsycology, psychiatry, mental health and victims of sexual abuse forums where the age groups are in line with avens of 17-24 ...spend some time in any of those and sexual repulsion can be seen as part of those forums which goes back to my point....sexual repulsion is not specific to asexuality as sexuals experience it too

That is correct: there is definitely a correlation between the online asexual community and age/gender.

Whether the same correlation carries over to the rest of the asexual population (outside internet forums) is a different question. We don't know but there could be such a correlation and saying "not all asexuals are female and 17-24" doesn't disprove such a correlation.
