    Wow, that XOJane article is a trainwreck. I haven’t even finished it and I’m cringing.

    I can respect what the author went through and that it must have been difficult for her, but… “what does your therapist say” is one of the first things out of her mouth? The whole way she writes about it is an excellent example of why we need better asexuality education.

    You can see the SMH article author’s response to Jo, and Jo’s second response, here:

    The author’s response to Jo is really not any better. She still doesn’t get it, and asks us to “agree to disagree” about whether we exist.
