(re: this post)

i appreciate the effort to help @nohelpwhatsoever, anon.

just to reiterate what i said in the previous post, i’m personally wary of making presumptions about the sexuality of historical figures, so… no comment. if the above interests you (ie. you, the reader), it may (or may not) be something to look into.

I should have been tipped off about being ace/aro when I went on a mission with a bunch of other Mormon girls (who I assumed shared my experience) and they were talking about their first kisses and they got to me. I said I’d never wanted to kiss anyone and their response was shocked stares followed by one of them whispering “are you some kind of angel”

And then the time a couple we were teaching was living together and my companion said they couldn’t get baptized and I was like “we can’t just assume they’re sleeping together and deny them baptism, we haven’t even asked them” and my companion barked a laugh and said “people don’t move in together to sleep in separate beds, sister. How innocent.”

Tl;dr for the first 24 years of my life I didn’t realize asexuality was a thing, I just thought I was excessively Mormon
