Let's Talk About: Asexuality by k-d-t Let's Talk About: Asexuality by k-d-t
Please, feel free to download this to use for raising awareness. This is an updated version - thanks to everyone who gave me helpful suggestions!

Also in Spanish: [link]

(If you would like to see this in your language, please feel free to send me the translated text, and I will arrange it for you.)

Hello, everybody! I've not been on dA much recently (that university thing takes up more of my time that I could have thought). But I'm dipping back in today to see what you think of this.

I intended this as a poster to introduce the concept of asexuality, which a vast majority of people know nothing about.
The information is mostly inspired by/paraphrased from AVEN, which is a brilliant site that I reccommend you investigate.

I'd love to know what you think of this poster.
:bulletblack:Is it too crowded? Just right?
:bulletblack:If you hadn't heard of asexuality before, has it been informative?
:bulletblack:If you identify as asexual, is there anything you think I've put badly, or missed out?



Edit: Thank you very much for all the comments - I haven't had this much feedback on a piece for a long time, if ever, and I really didn't expect this one to get any attention. I appreciate it :meow:

It's nice that you added the link to AVEN on the bottom of this also.. another thought, regarding the "if you havn't tried it, you dont know what you're missing." Someone once told me that "you don't have to jump in the water to know you don't like sharks." Basically saying.. you don't have to do the act to know that you don't desire it.

Why does it come as a shock to everyone that aces can feel romantic attraction?! That's not the same thing as sex! Has no one heard of the four loves? So because I just prefer not to bang, I certainly would never risk my life for someone else, right? And of course, if I do risk my life for another, I'm hoping 'If I survive this, we are so getting it on later!'
Okay, kind of went a little nuts there, but...yeah, it aggravates me.

This is awesome. You've done an excellent job of presenting the facts and shooting down the objections in a clear and concise way. Many thanks, and kudos!

Thank you so much for this. Sometimes I wonder if I am one myself, but I'll stop putting much thought into it and I'll just see what happens later (because I have reasons to think I am and reasons to think I am not)

But I needed this info since I have a character who I think is/will write as asexual and I'll look it up to do my best to get it right. (I wouldn't want to offend anyone)

I had only heard of this once, and when I did, It made so much sense. Sometimes I wonder if I am. I've never really been attracted to anyone. People think I'm wierd, but I'm incredibly happy alone. So this would explain quite a few things XD

Question: Can you be asexual, and still feel intense love for another person? Like, kissing, cuddling, making out and such, but not want the sex-part (Where the guy puts his pee-pee into her kitteh) and such? Or is it just completely not wanting anything to do with that sort? Or is there another term for that?
And great stuff you've done. It's pretty informative.
