I've had someone tell me "Demisexual is just 'normal,' most people won't have sex until they actually know someone," and I just ??? It's been a huge hump for me to get over that thinking that it kinda made me requestion everything about how my sexuality works. It was an incredibly invalidating moment and I'm still trying to process it. (The person apologized but they're the type to joke about sensitive topics so i just don't socialize with them much)
People who say this don’t understand how demisexuality works… “Normal” people (whatever that means) feel sexual attraction, but want to wait to have sex until they get to know the person, but demisexuals don’t feel sexual attraction to begin with (ie: they are closer to asexuals) until they get to know the person.
