Asexuals can be l or g or b or t, but if you don't experience same sex attraction, then you're not. Asexuality is not inherently gay.
Oh wow. You managed to pack so much right and wrong into those 26 words. Let’s try and unpack that, shall we?
Things you got right(to boost your confidence):
“Asexuals can be l or g or b or t”
That is correct! For example, I am a biromantic asexual gal. Good job!
“Asexuality is not inherently gay”
This is also correct! Just because I am asexual does not mean I am L, G, B, or P(forgive me if I forgot any). To be fair though, trans people aren’t inherently L, G, B, or P either, but since you were specifically referencing asexuals, I’ll give you that one.
Things you got wrong:
“if you don’t experience same sex attraction, then you’re not [LGBT]”
The thing is, you do not have to be attracted to the “same sex”(I put this in quotes because it is kind of transphobic) to be bi or trans. Sorry!
The entire message
Since I’m assuming you didn’t send this to me for shits and giggles, I’m pretty sure the message of this was that asexuals aren’t inherently part of the LGBTQ+ community. Aside from the fact that words have meanings and none of them meant what you wanted them to mean, asexuals are part of the LGBTQ+ community because we are not sexually attracted to the opposite gender, but thanks for trying!
Anywho, I hope my response was educational. You didn’t do that badly, 50% is actually pretty good! Have a great night!!!
