Do you have any pets? If so, what kinds? Or what pets would you want to have?
When I told a past professor I was going to be researching asexuality she told me she knows someone who might be asexual. Her reasons were the person was never in a relationship and had a lot of pets. My professor assumed she had pets to replace the companionship she’d get from a romantic and sexual relationship. I was surprised by the stereotype and haven’t heard it since, but it got me thinking about asexuality and pets. I assume aces have the same amount of pets as everyone else, but who knows? Take this as an excuse to brag about all the lovely nonhuman animal friends you cohabit with.
Right now I have an amazingly affectionate cat-sized chinchilla rabbit, a border collie/black lab dog (in my profile picture), and too many water snails to keep track of (they came along on some plants I bought for a water garden and they’re so soothing to watch and care for). In the past I’ve had more rabbits, birds, hermit crabs, fish, and cats. In the future I hope to adopt more herbivores. I’ve always wanted to have a small vegan sanctuary for rescued chickens, sheep, and/or cows. We’ll see if I get there 🙂
