"Asexual" is people with no sex drive trying to interpret that in the pre existing framework we use to discuss homosexuality or bisexuality. They're trying to do this because they have no other framework to think about it with. It's basically like how in the middle ages people thought that heat and cold are substances.

It is a stupid an inappropriate thing to do, and you're right to roll your eyes at it, but society is not ready to have this conversation because it's trapped in the idea that stonewall is the start of history and everything needs a stripe flag made for it.

Yeah it seems like it's that plus pop culture portrays the ideal woman as hypersexual, so women who have lower sex drives say they don't have any even when it's not technically true because they feel like there's something abnormal about them when it's really just societal expectations that are out of wack

Please do not double down on a hurtful take when people have asked or told you to stop posting about it, thx in advance. If you want to have a conversation about asexuality to try and better understand it, might I suggest somewhere that isn't this thread?

You won't have to worry about it for a couple of weeks. Please make sure to report him if he tries to continue the conversation once his probation is up.
