Matteo Lane Comedy clip

Recently discovered this comedian. They have a great stage presence & engage well with their audience.

 

Asexuality is brought up around the 22minute mark (start of that story is around 20min 40secs in) - I cringed...felt like asexuality was made into a joke but they diverted it & made it into a gay joke.

 

Is there a way they could have kept on the topic of asexuality & made it  funny whilst educating the audience without losing them ? Thoughts ? 

 

Thought they handled things really well but that one moment of cringe made me think, please do better.

Definitely! I think they could have finished their tangent and then mentioned that not wanting to have sex/identifying as asexual is not repressed homosexuality and that it's a very real and valid sexuality (or lack thereof). I can sympathize, though, being on stage in front of a big audience can be hard and maybe not the best place to think critically about what one is saying. 

 

On a side note, though, very icky to think that people think it's funny to label others (period, but also) despite having been told their label was otherwise seconds before. And then hearing people laugh and clap to that--anyone else get a sick feeling? I only watched the 22 minute mark, I personally don't find this type of media comedic.

That was the discomfort that led me to make this post. I couldn't figure out if I was feeling invalidated or erased as an ace.
