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)?...

A friend of mine thought I was asexual for a while. I actually just hit puberty pretty late. When it finally ended and I showed interest in the opposite sex, I think she was the happiest person around.

I CAN'T TELL YOU HOW MUCH I RELATE TO THIS!

I was everyone's object for gossip because they all wanted to put me in a romantic relationship, but they don't understand that I don't like people that way!
I want to be best friends with everyone! Not start eating someone's face! (which is what everyone else wishes upon me...) No, I disagree!
I'm in that 1%... for sure. I really can't imagine myself ever wanting to date.

I can relate to the description so well XD I'm pansexual and whenever I tell someone I usually get one of three things:

1. Well, which one do you like better? Boys or girls?

2. Isn't that just bisexual? 

3. You have sex with cooking pans? 

People need to broaden their horizons a little...

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.
