Can you even imagine the "coming out" conversation:

-DemiSexual: "Hey Mom. I only want to fuck my husband!"

-Mom: "That's....nice"

-DemiSexual: "and that makes me a queer LGBTQAIIWTF!"

-Mom: "....are you having a stroke, sweetheart?"

EXACTLY. The rebranding of an aspect of emotional maturity as some sort of supposedly tiny aspect of supposedly-out-there-super-specialness drives me up the wall.

"Demisexual" = I understand that people entering sexual relationships are not just bodies rubbing against each other, but they also have inner lives! And I understand that relationships are, well, relational! But hey... Let me phrase this insight in narcissistic terms, so I can pretend that a large part of society are villains.
