What do you wish more people would ask you about being ace?
What do you wish friends would ask you? Strangers? Maybe people on The Asexual Agenda?
cw: for invalidating ace identity
I’d like if people asked what asexuality meant to me instead of just assuming they know what it is (they usually don’t).
It would also be nice if they asked if there was anything they could do to be more accepting. It sucks to put minority people on the spot to speak on behalf of all people of a certain group, but you can also do this tactfully to ask what can I do to make you, as an individual, feel more comfortable? I would have loved if one of my last potential-dates did this when I said I don’t experience sexual attraction instead of telling me he wanted to test my hypothesis. Seriously?!
