The 30 Day Asexuality Challenge – Day 10 (long overdue)

Ugh, I really did not mean to put off continuing with this meme for as long as I did. For the past week that I was on a family vacation in Ireland, my ability to do anything besides be a tourist or be tired was practically nil. I didn’t even read very much, and I had brought a lot of books with me. But now I’m back and will finish what I started.

10) What have other people said about your asexuality?

Most responses have consisted of “Um, ok. Cool.” Some have been more positive, others have been neutral. One person did play the “you can’t be ace because it’s not evolutionary viable” card, but in the end, he accepted and believed the fact that I identified as I did, regardless of how he saw it.

My favorite response is this one –

Me: “I’ve never really been able to identify as straight, gay, or bisexual…”

My Friend: “So, you’re asexual?”

Me: “…How did you know about asexuality???”

My Friend: “Doesn’t everyone know about asexuality?”

She said all this with the utmost sincerity, without any hint of humor or sarcasm.
