Asexuality is a sexual orientation that refers to individuals who do not experience sexual attraction. While it is not a disorder or a choice, it is often misunderstood or dismissed by those who do not fully understand it.
Asexuality is a valid and real sexual orientation, and aromanticism, or the lack of romantic attraction, is also a real aspect of the human experience.
It is not something that can or should be fixed or changed. Therefore, “aces” are just as valid and deserving of love and respect as anyone else.
One of the biggest misconceptions about asexuality is that it means an individual is incapable of love or relationships.
Aces deserve to be recognized and included in conversations about sexuality and relationships.
If you are ace, know that you are not alone and that your orientation is valid and worthy of love and acceptance.
If you are not ace, try to educate yourself and be open to understanding and accepting asexuality.
Together, we can create a more inclusive and understanding world for all.
