Anonymous said: I'm really sorry, but I just need to talk to someone about this. Tonight I think my manager at work almost committed suicide, but I was able to talk him out of it. I came onto Tumblr shortly after, only to see all this asexual hate. I feel so overwhelmed and on the verge of a panic attack. Please help.

Oh wow, that’s a very serious issue and a lot of weight on your shoulders, I’m sorry that happened to you, I hope that both you and your manager are okay!

You’re very brave to have helped your manager through that situation and sometimes these issues can leave us feeling overwhelmed like you mentioned. I think you need to take a well deserved break. The asexual hate will blow over, these anti ace/gay blogs never last very long, plus the asexual community always seem to support and help one another, just like we’ll support and help you.

Your sexual identity is real, nobody can deny what you feel inside, and this blog have stated other really ignorant crap, like that homosexuality is a “disorder” and that feminists are full of shit. The people running it will eventually get bored and overwhelmed with all the backlash that eventually they’ll stop posting, or they’ll shut down.

Remember to take deep breaths. This isn’t permanent, surround yourself with people who care about you, maybe take a hot bath, have a nap, read a book? You deserve to relax after what has happened. Keep strong.
