Asexuality - Embrace the Ace

by @xDysonx
 

I decided to write this post just as a simple way of explaining what it's like to be part of the Asexual (or "Ace") community, and how you can learn to #EmbraceTheAce.

So, firstly,

What is Asexuality?

Asexuality is a form of sexuality within the LGBTQ+ community, much like being aromantic in that you do not feel romantic attraction to people, but instead, with asexuality, we do not feel any or much sexual attraction to anybody.

How Can I Live With Being Ace?

Well, firstly it is very important to realise that being asexual is not a bad thing!

Just like how being any other member of the LGBTQ+ community is not bad either.

It is perfectly alright for you to not feel any sexual attraction to others and this doesn't mean that you can't have a future family of your own! In fact, I even have a neighbour (well, 2 doors down) who are gay, married and have adopted a little girl who is now just starting primary school soon!

Whatever the situation, there is nothing wrong with not feeling any romantic or sexual attraction to people, it's just who you are. There are always so many ways to have a family (if you want one).

I am feeling pressured by friends because I haven't had sex yet!

If you are feeling pressured by your peers, perhaps they are simply unclear on what it truly means to be Ace, but again, it's not a bad thing. It just means that you aren't interested in sex and they are. People have different preferences for everything, why should this be any different, right?

 

Conclusion

Being Ace is perfectly fine, it just means you have a different view on sex than others do and that's alright!

Whatever your situation, don't be worried about it, and remember to #EmbraceTheAce!
