What does being asexual mean to you?
Well, it means a lot to me. Being ace means I have a great community that has a lot of fun jokes. It means that I understand the way I feel attraction in an intensely detailed way that most people don’t even think about (I am strongly aesthetically and sensually attracted to this person, but not romantically, etc.). It means that I get myself.
And sometimes it’s very frustrating. Because I know that having a really fucked up romantic orientation and being asexual means I will probably never meet somebody who I can get close to in the way I want to. But then, it’s so liberating because I know so much more about the way I feel about people than I would if I was still mixing up aesthetic and sexual attraction. It just… It means a lot to know yourself. So yeah, being asexual means everything to me.
