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!
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 lot of people think Bi is just an excuse too. Like if they date same-sex "they were really in the closet that whole time." And if they date opposite sex "they were just going through a phase." Like you said, it's mostly because people don't understand it and are too stubborn or lazy to try.
I remember when I didn't understand Transexuals. My friend was trying to explain them to me. Oh god, I am so sorry to every last one of them. Me: "So, they're people who can't afford a sex-change?" Friend: "Well, sometimes yeah, but that's not the point!"
And, dude, I grew up with insanely religious parents and the first thing I ever said online was bashing people for shipping Roxas and Axel. I used 'gay' as an insult and went over how they can't possibly be more then friends. I sincerely apologize if anyone ever read that, I can't find the form again but Axel is obviously in love with Roxas.
At least I learned, though, and was completely open-minded in the end. Some people, though, I feel sorry for them sometimes.
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 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...) I'm in that 1%... for sure. I really can't imagine myself ever wanting to date.
