Stupid question by Tenshi-no-Hikari Stupid question by Tenshi-no-Hikari
Hey guys, I'm not dead, lol! Here's a little comic as a sign of life xDDD
Sorry for not submitting for so long but my new full time job is very exhausting '''OTL Still need time to adapt to it x___x

But I promise I'll try to be more active from now on, still have so many ideas that need to be drawn! :D

-----

As for the comic itself, here's a little description:
I hate that attitude some people have: they have the urge to put you into a category, either you're straight or gay/lesbian or bi, because anything else 'does not exist'. It's funny how people want to negate something just because they don't understand it. Besides, not having a girlfriend/boyfriend does not mean you're searching for one, even if you're not asexual. xD
PS: I'm talking about people who really are asexual, not kids who pretend to be one just because it's "trendy" or whatever. xD
Oh and 1% of the population are asexual, if you think about that, that's a lot of people!

EDIT: I know that asexual must not automatically mean aromantic and that asexual people can still want a romantic relationship. But let's face reality: how big is the chance to find a partner who will tolerate this (or who's also asexual)?...

MenollySagittaria : This is true. While some will engage in intercourse, it's not fulfilling to them as it is to the partner. It's a function of being human. There are other Aces, like myself who would prefer not to have sex at all and are open to having an open relationship to allow the partner to satisfy the natural urges with another if he/she so chooses.

Sexual orientation does not mean wanting sex. It simply means attraction on a physical and emotional level. Sex drive is a biological tool that many take for granted now and is often misinterpreted to be tied directly to an orientation, though it is not.

"how big is the chance to find a partner who will tolerate this"

Asexuals can and do have sex as compromise if they want a relationship.

But given the average person's inability to comprehend the concept of not being sexually attracted to anyone, they're likely to even further misinterpret an asexual actually *having sex . . .

And with the internet, finding another asexual is just a click away. (and later planning and moving, but hey)

There really does seem to be this big disconnect when you try to explain asexuality to people. Straight people simply don't/can't/won't get it, and gay people seem to be afraid it's catching. T.T

I told my mother I had absolutely no interest in getting involved with anyone sexually (or even romantically) and her sage advice was the same as in the comic: I haven't met the right guy yet.

I have a pan-sexual friend, a transgender friend, an asexual friend, a lesbian friend, and a gay friend.
I respect all of them and even joke around about their sexuality as they do about me being strait sometimes.
I even make jokes about what would happen if I were a lesbian.
I don't see why people don't get the idea of asexuality

Haha! Luv this. Some people just can't comprehend the fact that maybe you don't want a relationship. (I like the color style, btw!)

When I talk to my friends about being single for life they can't help but give me a list of numbers and percentages of people who are single because they WANT to be and I'm just sittin' there like... "...GUYS...Maybe I AM in that 2%...."  9___9

Can I ask something? Maybe i'm being a jackass, but I really do feel like this needs to be asked.

The friends that this character represents, have you told them what Asexual means? I mean actually and expressly TOLD them what it MEANS.
Because otherwise I fail see how calling them 'stupid' is justified when all you're doing (from their perspective) is throwing this word at them...

I have no issue with any sexuality, but if this comic is an accurate telling of how conversations with your friends go, then, to be perfectly honest, this just comes off as you demonising them fro being nice and not knowing any better.

The person who I consider my best friend is Transexual, and he told me (and his other friends) what it means as soon as he told them that he was Transexual, and that has meant that we don't ask stupid questions.

If you have told them, that's fine, you are in the right and I apologise for being accusing
If you haven't, then why the hell not, and how the hell is it their fault that they don't know what you're talking about?

Sorry if I came off as rude, and I'm sorry that people are so ignorant and unaccepting of anything that they consider 'out of the ordinary', but then I'm also sorry that people are often made out like they are homophobic, transphobic, aphobic simply because of not knowing any bettter and when, strictly speaking, haven't done anything wrong
