Asexual - noun
a person who has no sexual feelings or desires.

If you "really like" reading fic about sex, you aren't asexual, just uncomfortable with sex

-A real asexual who is tired of people like you

(Anonymous) 2017-09-07 11:15 pm (UTC)(link)
Why are you tired of people like me?

You're stealing their special snowflake thunder.

Here's your reply

That's what I'm hearing, yeah.

Because you are still into sexual things. It doesnt make sense. Neither can someone be heterosexual or bisexual or homosexual and asexual either, like a lot of people online nowadays say they are. "Asexual lesbian/gay" "Asexual heteromantic". It's contradictory for someone to be lacking in desires but then in the same sentence say they have a desire for a certain sex. It's just low libido. It also doesn't make sense for someone who claims to be asexual to actively seek out sexual fiction when they claim to lack those desires. It's hypocritical.

Why do you care so much how people label their sexuality?

(Anonymous) 2017-09-07 11:27 pm (UTC)(link)
Because words have meaning and with blurred meanings how can anyone take those words seriously anymore?

(Anonymous) 2017-09-07 11:29 pm (UTC)(link)
Words will always mean different things to different people. Sorry 'bout it.

You do know that language isn't static, right? That it naturally evolves and changes over time?

Just because someone likes to read about sex doesn't mean they want to have sex themselves

Great job trying to gatekeep another person's sexuality

-Another 'real' asexual

Also ace, and yup, this.

Yeah. If your reading preferences speak of your sexuality, then all those lesbians reading M/M ad het are clearly dying for a cock.

(Anonymous) 2017-09-07 11:38 pm (UTC)(link)
Hey look, I can use Google too!

Asexuality is a sexual orientation, like homosexuality or heterosexuality. And like being straight or being gay, it’s about what someone feels, not what someone does. Dating, having sex, masturbating, falling in love, getting married, or having children do not conflict with asexuality in any way. There are many reasons why an asexual person might do these things that do not require sexual attraction to be present.

My god, next you'll be using Wikipedia I guess, smdh.

Asexuality is the lack of sexual attraction to others, or low or absent interest in or desire for sexual activity. It may be considered the lack of a sexual orientation, or one of the variations thereof, alongside heterosexuality, homosexuality and bisexuality.

lack of sexual attraction to others, or low or absent interest in or desire for sexual activity.

You're right, your Wiki quote sums it up nicely. OP enjoying smutfic does not automatically 'disqualify' them from being asexual. But sure, have fun trying to police random strangers' sexual identities, since you clearly know better than they do themselves.

Hold on, so is a lesbian that likes slash, attracted to men in real life?

This will be news to so many people.


(Anonymous) 2017-09-08 12:08 am (UTC)(link)
And I'm tired of people like you telling me what my sexuality is. Figuring out that I am not sexually attracted to people irl has made things much clearer in my life and I am very content. Me saying I'm asexual will not take anything from you, but it makes my own life happier and calmer. And you can't take that away from me. In the same way a lesbian can read slash and not suddenly be bi, I can read/enjoy smut fic and not stop being ace.

(Anonymous) 2017-09-08 12:31 am (UTC)(link)
I'm another ace person who loves reading about characters I ship doing smutty things together, and I second all of this. :) Sorry this anon is being awful to you. Glad you're not letting it rattle you. :)

Some asexuals enjoy reading/thinking about characters (as in, entities who are not them) having sex. That absolutely does NOT mean they want to have sex with someone themselves.

I've been reading and enjoying smut featuring my various ships for fifteen years. But guess how many times I've been sexually attracted to someone myself? Zero. Zero times.

I have a love of eroticism, and filthy, filthy smut. It just so happens that none of my erotic fantasies involve me, at all, ever.
