Thank you for sharing.

 

Initially I do remember being conscious of being something there was no name for.

 

And of also feeling something vaguely like guilt for not being "normal."

 

Excellent positive representation in this article.

Really liked this. Especially appreciative that two of the people interviewed figured out they are asexual around or after 30.

True. I'm pretty sure two people in my family still don't believe me. One keeps saying she can see me in a relationship one day. The other keeps pointing out females to me and making suggestions I find repulsive. He recently asked how I would react if I guy kissed me. I said I'd probably be amused and not bothered. I meant not bothered in the sense of the persons gender but I don't think he got that. I also said I wouldn't be interested. I left him rather confused lol.

So, my sister (who knows I'm ace and I believe understand asexuality a lot more since I've come out) found this article and shared it with me!

 

https://broadly.vice.com/en_us/article/what-its-like-to-come-out-as-asexual?utm_source=broadlybustlefbus

 

Basically it recounts 3 different experiences of people being asexual and coming out. It skims over the parts where it's difficult to come out as asexual when you're young, it briefly mentions romantic orientations, it explains asexuality pretty well a couple of times with good analogies, and it explains how it's different to come out as asexual because you never bring anyone home. You bring it up once, come out, but it doesn't come up against because you're not introducing anyone to a partner (though is does mention that this is onyl true if you're aromantic as well).

 

Good article

I thought this looked familiar.

 

@Snow Cone shared this article previously.

 

Here's the link if you want to read some of the reactions to it as well.

 

But thank you for reposting.

 

It really is a relevant article.
