Aro/aces inherently LGBT? Thru what cavity? I'm not tryna to start shit with you or weva, and ya obviously ace/aros are valid. but look up material oppression. It isn't really a matter of being apart of lgbt peole so much as the fact that lgbt oppression is related to court rulings, and systematic murder (re: the aids crisis). It affects income, housing, and other LGBT specific life affecting laws. If you have any information to being ace/aro ppl being affected by this lmk, I'm truly curious
When I was 15 my parents decided to take me off my ADHD medication and try this experimental thing called neurofeedback. It supposedly stimulates your brain into correcting itself. Obviously it failed miserably, but there was a list of symptoms my parents were told to check so the person could customize my treatment plan. This was shortly after I came out to them as asexual. Do you know what one of the things they checked off? ‘Having a low libido’.
Guess what? That was the only thing that stupid treatment worked on was my fucking libido. (BTW Libido does not equal sexual attraction, I’m still ace for being hypersexual) It caused me to feel arousal all the time for no fucking reason and as a person who’s gone through some sexual trauma it was so horrible. I hated my body so much. I hated that I felt these things with no trigger. I have been hypersexual (and sex repulsed at the same time and it’s honestly hell) for some time now, but I was used to that level of it and able to deal with it without triggering nasty memories or anything, but while doing that I couldn’t.
Fortunately I’m no longer doing that treatment, but that’s a real experience of asexuality causing real problems.
And here’s a few more instances if you want to read up on them.
Your opinion on the matter is valid and all, and I don’t think of you any less as a person, but I hope reading my own story will give your brain something to chew on.
