Living in a hyper-sexual world along with the constant erasure of asexual characters  in the media can be harmful to people who are struggling to find self-acceptance.There is preconception in society that if you don’t feel attraction it’s because you haven’t met the right person and this can be extremely toxic. College student Connie H. who identifies as Asexual Aromantic wants questioning-asexuals to know: “You are not broken. You are not less. If this is who you are, then no one has the right to tell you you are not. Asexuality is not a phase, or a choice, or a symptom of mental trauma. It is something to be proud of, and we would be glad to call you one of our own. You are not alone.”
