“cishets aren’t lgbt” is a controversial statement for the exact same reason “males aren’t women” is. Oh, taken at face value, sure, it’s technically true. But you know the context. They know the context. We all know they’re not actually talking about males.
The other problem, too, is that the people who think LGBT literally only stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bi, and Transgender don’t seem to realize that /none/ of those four groups face the exact same problems.
You can’t exclude asexuals for “not facing what we do” when you all don’t face the same things yourselves. Good try, though.
*This phrase more accurately means someone who was born in a year with the same Chinese zodiac sign as the current year. 2017 will be year of the rooster, and Judai was born in 1993, which was also year of the rooster.
