Society needs to learn both that asexuality is not synonymous with aromanticism and more importantly, that romance and sex are not intrinsically linked. Sex cannot turn you on to romance, if you’re aromantic. Romance cannot turn you onto sex, if you’re asexual. By which I mean, your orientation is not determined by the acts in which your partake. Liking sex doesn’t change your asexuality, wanting romance doesn’t mean you’ll like sex, having or liking sex won’t transform you into someone who wants romance if you didn’t want beforehand, etc.
