The people who want to exclude you might act like they’re indisputably right, might condescend, might ignore your lived experiences for the sake of overly simplified privilege-oppression dynamics, but remember this:
Most major LGBTQ organizations welcome us. “Asexuals are LGBTQ+” isn’t a controversy in much of the real world, it’s a fact. Exclusionists are nothing but a loud, hateful minority.
Just keep fighting for a-spec people and for anyone else who’s being thrown under the bus in this mess. You are stronger than you know.
And know that I won’t give up until everyone who should belong is welcome. I won’t let any other marginalized groups be excluded. Lateral aggression may always exist, but we can be better. We can always improve ourselves and our community. We all deserve somewhere safe.
