As an ASexual, who are your role models?

Recommended Posts

Gone Boy

I am not familiar with any ASexual role models because I have only recently identified as Asexual so most of mine are from the LGBT community. Like Laverne Cox, Janet Mock, Jinxx Monsoon, Courtney Act and Alyssa Edwards to name a few.

No need for role models here.

I don't have any role models really... never any asexual ones...
I used to look up to someone but I can no longer look up to that person... (well I can in the literal sense but you know)...

I mean I always say you should be your own role model, or at least partly anyways...

I have a headcanon that the second doctor from Doctor Who is asexual, seeing as he's one of the only doctors (that I've seen) that never flirted or got engaged or had a love interest. He's also one of my personal favorites, so to me he's the perfect role model... I 'd like to stick with that headcanon..

This is going to sound terrible, especially as an adult, but my mom's my role model.

Don't revoke my adult card okay? I can finally buy ramune in BevMo without being escorted!!!

I don't have any role models either. Is this a strange Ace thing?

honestly i'd rather you have your mom as your role model than hate her and cut her off simply 'cause you're an adult

Like others who have posted, I've never really had much in the way of specific "role models," as such. There are certainly plenty of people I look up to and admire, in different ways, but no one whom I would really call my "role model". As far as I know, none of these people I admire are ace, but that also doesn't significantly impact whatever admiration for them I do feel.

 

That said, I'm with @sithgirlix: my mother. My father too, actually. I'm still terrified of adulthood, so feel free to revoke my card. :P

Steve Irwin was my role model when I was younger. But I don't think I really have one now. I mean being Christian I try to be like Jesus so maybe he could be considered a role model?

I also really like Ghandi.

I don't see anything wrong with your mom being your role model just because she's your mom.

I'd consider it a great blessing to have parents you can look up to and have a healthy relationship with, whether you're a child or an adult. :)

I don't really consider myself a Christian, but I do believe that Jesus Christ is a really good asexual role model.   Was Ghandi asexual?

I'm sorry but I guess my asexual role models could only be fictional characters. I don't know anyone in real life that is asexual.

Nope, pretty sure Gandhi was not asexual.

Agree with daveb, Ghandi was not asexual. He did, however, practice celibacy later in life.

Oh....😳

I didn't know the role model was supposed to be asexual...I guess I didn't understand the title completely...haha(nervous laugh)

 

In that case I don't think I have one.

While the Catholic church removed those books from the Bible, there are clear stories about Jesus's relationship with Mary Magdalene. He wasn't asexual, either.

 

At one time, my father was my role model, but he was FAR from an asexual, and later in life I realized he was a big asshole. Other than him, I've never had any role models.

@Lonely Leafeon It was probably me who misread the thread title, and I was also trying to respond to the questions in the OP.  But now those questions have been removed so who knows what I was trying to respond to.  @Gone Boy why did you edit the OP after the discussion began?

 

@Spotastic Since I was programmed to believe that Jesus was asexual, I'll stick with him for being an asexual  role model.  I have heard about his flings with Mary M, and it wouldn't surprise me one bit if he was indeed a sexual being,  But, since the whole Jesus thing is based on belief and questionable documentation it makes for a good story that one can choose to believe any way that's convenient for themselves.

I don't have an asexual role model but I've had a couple of great mentors in Nursing down the years, Fair, above board, hard working and skilled.

I don't know if it has to do with being asexual but, Carl Jung is my all time role model. If I had to choose someone based on my asexualness, maybe Luffy from one piece or something.
