Do you identify as disabled or neurodiverse and how does this interact with your asexuality?
I was at a queer women’s disability conference recently and to the surprise of no-one asexuality was not discussed very much. The first time it came up was around how many disabled people have to fight hard not to be read as asexual. This made me curious about if disabled people that *were* ace had conflicted feelings about being read that way.
The other time it was up was an autistic bisexual women mentioned that there is a high correlation between autistic people and asexual people, and this is the only time I heard asexuality mentioned in a positive and inclusive light.
Do you have experience with overlaps in any of these spaces, either personally or in conversations you’ve observed?
