Thank you, I am very glad. c:
The stripes on the flag mean: black stripe = asexuality, gray stripe = gray asexuality and demisexuality, white stripe = nonasexual spectrum/allies, and purple stripe = community, for those who don’t know. c:

Anonymous said: Do I count as straight? I'm a heteroromantic asexual, but as I understand it, straight supposedly only accounts for heterosexuals. I know it's a silly question, but it just popped into my head and I thought I'd ask.
There’s such a debate about this, from what I’ve seen.
I’ve seen people arguing that heteroromantic asexuals aren’t straight, because that erases the ‘asexual’ part of their identity. As well as people who disagree. I know of some homoromantic aces who call themselves gay.
If you want to call yourself straight, then there’s not really a reason why you shouldn’t. Up to you, really, since there’s not really a definitive consensus.

Yeah, basically what I meant, sorry if that wasn’t clear? The reason I added the point about people debating is that I wanted to give them a heads up that there’s the possibility that they’re going to be policed, probably, but that shouldn’t influence what they identify as. Sorry if I gave the impression otherwise or answered poorly. (Don’t hesitate to tell me when I word things wonky, guys.)

Anonymous said: Fox News had a discussion about asexuality on one of their shows. Instead of having asexual identified people on the show, they chose to make fun of asexual spectrum people. There is a petition going on at Change. org called "Instead of talking about asexual people, talk to us!" and I was wondering if the followers of this blog could sign it and spread the word because we need as many people as possible to support us.
The post about it is here: (x)
Honestly, I don’t want them to even touch it again, but that’s just me.

If you right click the image and select ‘open link in new tab’ it should open the larger file.

Anonymous said: Is it bad to not release sexual energy? Sometimes I have a build up but have no desire to fulfill it. Do you think that could be bad for my health?
I honestly don’t really know for sure. I think it depends. I know of some cases of people who have a libido who have gone their whole lives without doing anything about it without having ill effects on their health, and I know of cases where it has been potentially harmful.
I don’t really know the general idea about it.
I’d recommend checking an actual sex ed blog like this one or something, (x) sorry I can’t be of more help.
