Wanting connection and having standards before you put out makes you asexual now? That is the dumbest thing I have ever heard.

Whats scary is lots of people in the leftie "sex positive" crowd push the notion that not wanting to fuck every human you meet (and being grossed out by kinks) makes you asexual. To them, there's no middle ground between totally asexual and a kinky nymphomaniac

I think demisexual IS the middle ground.

Yup, very depressing to see how the goalposts have been moved to include literal sexual abuse as "normal" sexuality, making everyone who doesn't enjoy it "abnormal".

That’s the line that was being pushed on AVEN years ago. They were totally brainwashed by hookup culture and porn, and talked as if being “allosexual” (normal people, I think) meant wandering around in a near-permanent state of arousal and being down to fuck any random who crossed your path.

It was so confusing to me when people got mad at me for assuming asexuals had no sexual interest.

“We can be interested in people sexually, but we value the emotional connection more”

“…so you’re just well-adjusted individuals?”

“No we’re asexual!”

"But asexuality is a SPECTRUM!!"

LOL. That literally makes no sense. Its like saying, "I'm a lesbian. But I fuck men on Tuesdays because sometimes ya just crave a little dick. Lesbian is a SpEcTrUm y'all!!"

Tumblr needs to be nuked.

What's so difficult about saying "I didn't get enough attention from my parents and am desperately searching for any kind of specialness"?

yup! this is why I thought I was asexual in high school. I actually think there’s something to be said for (mostly young girls) having a way to resist hookup culture that is forced on them, but obviously claiming like it’s an oppressed identity is absurd.
