Gay Pride was not born out of the need to celebrate being gay, but instead our right to exist without prosecution. So maybe instead of wondering why there isn’t a Straight Pride month or movement, straight people should be thankful they don’t need one.

Demisexual positivity post

I haven’t seen one of these for demisexuals yet and as your ace brother I’d like to spread some positivity so:


  • You are still valid as a demisexual if you look at porn/masturbate as well as if you don’t
  • You are still valid as a demisexual if sex doesn’t really interest you
  • A close emotional bond is the condition in which sexual attraction MAY occur- if you have a close emotional bond with someone or many people who you do not find sexually attractive then you are still valid as a demisexual
  • You may call yourself ace as a demisexual as you are part of the asexual umbrella
  • As a demisexual you have just as much right to be a part of the ace community as gray aces and asexuals 

Thank you :) this has been a demisexual positivity post! Stay awesome, Demi friends! Please feel free to add other important points of positivity to the list as you reblog.
