There's nothing wrong of being bisexual or asexual, I don't understand asexuality, isn't that when people don't want to be with anyone whatsoever? Like Asexuals don't have "feelings" to be with someone? I dunno.

No its just that they don't feel sexual attraction. They can feel romantic attraction though.


Thats gotta suck. But i guess at least they dont get sexually frustrated? and its one less thing to spend money on i guess?
Iam not exactly living in the sheets but hard to imagine not even feeling attracted to anyone.


By those definitions you could technically label me that. Makes no difference to me. I wouldn't consider myself anything other than just a guy who doesn't feel any romance or any of that shit. Probably because I just hate people in general.

Seems like people come up with labels for anything these days though.

Nobody likes being labeled. Unless they use labels to identify with, or to reclaim the label, or wear it ss a badge of honour. Personally don't care for them. Its really imo noone's business unless you want it to be.

I'm blaming tumblr for part of the problem. Everyone I've seen mention their sexuality was Bi/Asexual, even if their blog was about cartoons. Those people? Definitely looking for attention

Probably cause some people don't have an identity without those labels, it's kinda off putting and funny when people attach to a label with a death grip.

I hooked up with a girl who was bi, her girlfriend has yet to find out. I never did ask if her girl is bi as well, if so then all 3 of us can...

Why is there so much of it?
There is so much of it even in the LGBT community.

Bisexuals seem to always be accused of being selfish, cheaters, and/or just wanting attention. We're also seen as horny preverts.
Our existence is denied. We're seen as people who are just being experimental and trying to figure out our "real" sexuality.
Fetishistization of bisexuality is kinda dumb. Some straight people see it as a automatic yes to a threesome.
I feel I might get why people can think that, but the reason is still dumb, and also highly unlikely imo. And I just can't believe people actually think these things about bisexuals.

Asexuals, I would say, is probably the most hated in general, and flat out rejected from their own community. There's not even any exceptions.
They are too denied of their existence, and are often told "you just haven't found the right person yet." Some are also told they need "to be fixed" and even go as far as raping them, to "fix" them.
That's also the reason they seemed fetishized as well. Its sorta part of the rape fetish, just more specific and kinda dumb imo.

I'm not asexual, so please correct me on anything I've said about them.

Im discussing both mainly because I see most of the reasons they aren't really accepted by people seem to be the same imo.

Anyway, what are your thoughts on them? And the accusations/stereotypes of them?
If you're bisexual or asexual, I'd like to hear what you think about this as well & maybe even tell us of your experiences with it.

I'd really like to know tbh.


The LGBT+ "community" isn't so much of a community but bunch of little groups whose only thing in common is that they get thrown under the homophobia bus. Amongst themselves they are just as guilty hate and ignorance as is the population that victimizes them. It's sad really.

that said, are Asexuals even recognised under the LGBT+'s ever expanding acronym (at least 10 letters now)?

Not Asexual so i can't judge 100% correctly but since my last relationship i have next to no sex drive nor am i turned on by someone i don't love.

So i have a basic idea of how it feels to not be sexual but not to an Asexual extent.


Honestly is it that hard to accept Asexuality? some people don't want sex or like it some people like Asexual people just don't get sexual ....i don't see why people can't accept this.

Honestly what annoys me more then people assuming shit like with Bisexuals etc is the common belief "oh you are a guy so you have to be sexual"....No


Bisexuals arn't horny sexual people there normal.
Asexuals are normal people also.

The Stereotypes are annoying even to someone who is neither of the two.

Last summer the official signage for the pride parade had it at LGBTTQ2S. and people were adding an 'o' on the end. I think the "O" is for 'other'

edit so... last year it was LGBTTQ2SO. and we wonder why people don't take our self-labels seriously.

I've known some bi females myself. I think they like to have fun exploring their sexuality and I've been in some interesting situations with them.
