    OMG The Bustle article’s Truth #1 makes me feel so validated:

    “Some people who identify as asexual might feel sexual desire once they’ve developed an emotional bond with a specific person. Some people describe themselves falling somewhere between sexual and asexual.”

    Describing demisexuality and gray asexuality that way makes it seem like the lines between the three identities are blurred, which is a good thing… And it’s so much better than “asexuals are people don’t feel sexual attraction and then over here we have weirdos who use different words.”

      Though the “there is no causal link” between trauma and asexuality kinda sucks… :/ Guess you can’t have everything when it comes to mainstream coverage.

    I can’t leave a comment on the tumblr about the parent’s guide, so maybe someone can forward this?

    For parents, when your child comes out: don’t start going on about how sexuality is often fluid. All it comes across as is that you’re hoping it will be because you don’t want your child to be asexual.

    If your child has a partner (or more than one), don’t start out by asking about how they’re dealing with it; especially don’t say anything like “poor ” or “that must be rough on “.
