Day 4, Asexual Awareness Week. Intersectional experiences.
I suppose one of the sucky things about being on the ace-spectrum and a poc coming from a religious household is that people assume you feel the way you do because of some kind of repression or guilt complex. Dude no. There’s a difference between actively fighting against your sexual desires for someone and that desire for them not being there in the first place.
Also, last I checked, most religious households were never entirely against sex. Its usually encouraged after marriage so it’s not like religious people say ‘NEVER DO IT EVER.’ Religious people still think about sex with others. I just don’t because it doesn’t naturally occur to me. Not because I was taught to deny my feelings.

✸ Star Wars worlds : Hoth From space, the planet of Hoth looked like a pale blue orb due to its dense snow and ice covering. The temperature, although always frigid, was known to drop to -60°C come nightfall. It notably hosted Echo Base, the temporary headquarters of the Alliance to Restore the Republic, until the Galactic Empire located the Rebels, initiating a major confrontation known as the Battle of Hoth.
