I was talking to my brother who is gay about the ace community and he was offended by the term "allosexual" because he sees it as a term which categorizes people by their sexual attraction. I get where he's coming from especially people who are LGB who are already singled out by their sexual orientation to be further classified by their sexual preferences. I was wondering if anyone else had a similar experience and if we as a community should consider the effects our words have on our allies.
Well the word Allosexual isn’t a bad word? It just means someone who feels sexual attraction? Maybe try to explain it to him that it isn’t a word used against them by the ace community
But followers, have anyone of you experienced similar things?
