Let’s talk about asexuality, the lack of sexual attraction to other people. Have you heard of it before?
Chances are you haven’t, so let’s talk about it now.
“So is that like celibacy, or abstinence?” In short, no. Both of these are active choices, but asexuality is a sexual orientation; and being asexual doesn’t mean someone will never have sex.
“But if someone has sex, surely they’re not asexual?” If a gay man has sex with a woman, does that make him straight? No. Being attracted to someone, being able to feel sexual pleasure and wanting to have sex are three very different things.
“Can asexuals fall in love?” Yes, they can. Romantic attraction and sexual attraction are two different things. While some people may be aromantic as well as asexual, others still date and seek long-term partners.
“That’s silly. They just need to try it/find the right person.” Sounds just like “she’s not straight, she just hasn’t found the right girl yet.” Most people don’t need to have sex to know to whom they are attracted, so it doesn’t make sense to say that someone can’t know whether they are asexual, too.
“Ok, I’ll accept all that. But why should I care?” Sexuality is a very prominent part of our society, and asexuals make up a very small percentage of the population. This makes it easy for asexuals to believe they are alone in feeling this way, even that they are “broken”. Raising awareness helps asexuals to be comfortable with themselves, and to be open about their feelings without fear of alienation.
