    The basis of the documentary is that 1% of the population is "(a)sexual" and therefore it would be considered something totally normal... So, what about the 12,5% of the population that is starving right now? It is also normal? I think is that to be asexual is a respetable choice, one of many. But to try to define what a "normal relationship" is, well, sounds kind of.. you know... arrogant... extremely arrogant.

    That comment from Dan Savage in the video is really upsetting me. We want acceptance just as much as anyone in the LGBTQ community; shouldn't he be at least somewhat understanding? He began the "it gets better" campaign and is judging people for their sexuality? This isn't even the only time he had some condescending remark about asexuals. God, the irony hurts.

    Oh no, I never said such a thing. I actually understand quite well why other people want sex but it doesn't mean I have to experience it myself. There are also lots of people who do understand without experiencing something. It's just that obviously you're one of the people who can't. ^.^ I don't understand your "logic" that everyone MUST want sex like you. It's pretty stupid to assume you magically know how everyone else thinks/feels/experiences things and assume they must be lying.

    Could be worse. At least you're not a paedophile.

    In this society, being an ace is pretty difficult for me, we are pressured all the time to think we have to be sexual.

    I'm very happy as an asexual. I feel like a big pressure has been lifted off of me and I can focus on what I want to do. Not what society says I should do. I know my body better then society will ever know, so any input on sex to me in non-applicable.

    You need to surround yourself with friends that accept you for who you are. NO ONE should change who they are because people think it's weird. In fact, who cares what other people think. Opinions are only opinions and cannot hurt you unless you let it get to you. I consider myself further evolved then most of these people on the planet. I don't feel a need to make my ego bigger, and EVERYBODY needs to learn this. Nothing good comes from having a big ego.

    I wish I was asexual,would save my a lot of time putting a shampoo bottle up my arse and wacking off half of the time

    Am I asexual? no, I'm just a loser who lost contact with the person I'm deeply in love with, in other words just very repressed and disgusting.
  • TheLady2luv 2013-05-05 16:04:14
    I wish I was asexual, being a christian that has strong sexual desires is so difficult to deal with. I'm a women so I get judged sometimes when people find out I was once addicted to pornography. Though I'm waiting, I think love is better than sex.

    Don't envy us. Being asexual is not fun. Imagine living in a world where no one understands you or the way you think. When you try and express what you feel you get called a prude or a freak. People try and correct the way we live because it is different from theirs and being told that something is wrong with you is horrible. We live in such a sexualized world that being asexual is just ostracizing. So jokes aside, don't envy us. It's not simple nor is it easier than being sexual.

    don't tease me now
  • Xaimand 2013-04-04 18:55:43
    It's not our fault you're so totally lost to the idea that everyone has to think like you, that you can't even comprehend not wanting sex. I'm pretty sure instantly dismissing something just because you can't imagine being that way would be considered a lack of understanding.

    I think it's also important to point out that just because you're asexual doesn't mean you HAVE to stay celibate, nor does it mean that you're not asexual if you aren't celibate. Sure to some it might be a "sacrifice" but I know of some asexuals who partake in sexual activity for the other benefits that sex might bring them. A friend of mine said that it was kind of like a massage for them, but they don't seek sex because of sexual frustration. They don't even know how that feels.
