If you’ve outed yourself as asexual, what’s your favorite reaction that you’ve gotten? If you haven’t outed yourself before, what reactions would you like to get?
In general, I like people to react with interest–after all, I mentioned it for a reason–but be mostly interested in whatever topic I was talking about when I brought it up. It’s sometimes difficult to have conversations about the more complicated ways that being ace affects me when every time I mention it to someone new, I get derailed into 101 conversations about asexuality is and what it’s like to be ace.
Basically, I like people to already know what asexuality is and have talked to enough ace people that the new has worn off, which I realize is not exactly a reasonable expectation! Ha.
How about you?
