Asexuality is under the LGBTQ umbrella, though not many people actually know what it is. Many people may be asexual, and still battling with themselves trying to figure out why they’re different, what’s my sexuality, why can’t I understand when people are talking about this?
Asexuality is a sexual orientation, of not feeling sexual attraction.
It’s not a choice. You cannot choose to be asexual, just like you cannot choose to be gay or straight. But people wonder, why are people talking about their asexuality? What’s the big deal about somebody not wanting sex? Nobody cares about that!
It’s true that asexuals do not have as many hurdles to overcome as other people in the LGBTQ community, but we have to face our own problems, that mostly stem from people not knowing what asexuality is, denying that it’s a real thing, thinking said person just needs to have awesome sex, and that will fix them, that said person needs to go to a therapist, that’ll fix them too. That it’s not a real thing, and instead, a sickness, or simply repressed sexual feelings. Nobody takes it half as seriously as they do being gay or bi. Because there is no visibility in the matter.
It’s already strange living in a world obsessed with sex, and you can’t understand it. People who think that love is sex.
But Asexual Visibility is important to me, because of the people who would like to physically fix me with themselves. And nobody takes it seriously. And this is not right.
