Asexualität - oder: "Okay, also hast du keinen Sex?"

Ein leicht eskalierter Thread zum "A" in LGBTQA+ und warum das Ganze nicht so einfach ist ...

#ace #asexuality
Asexualität ist nicht gleich Asexualität. Es gibt unendlich viele Nuancen. Asexualität ist ein gewaltiges Spektrum.

"Aber wie weißt du dann, ob du asexuell bist?"
Storytime: Als Teens fingen wir natürlich an, uns für "das andere Geschlecht" zu interessieren. Jungs wurden sexy. Für alle anderen jedenfalls. Wann immer eine Freundin sagte "Guck mal, ein hotter Typ" dachte ich nur so "hä? Wen bitte meint sie?"

Thinking about the importance of #ownvoices to me as an #actuallyautistic reader. Keep in mind, I love so many non-own voices books and authors. But for those who are neurotypical, cis het white readers, this might help you understand the movement from a different perspective.
I grew up surviving by mimicry while also afraid to be seen by people. My wife, also #autistic, is an observer. I am a hider. I was afraid to be a target. So I learned to be neurotypical by reading anything and everything I could. I didn't know that was my reason though.
Now, as a 40 year old, I understand and do it purposely. I've learned to act more sexually interested than I may be, not as a negative, but to make my wife (or partner at the time) know that I do want to be there, but #asexuality means I experience it differently.

I looked up @lgbtmap's resources showing which states have passed bans against #conversiontherapy on the basis of sexual orientation for minors. The states are CA, WA, OR, NV, NM, IL, VT, NH, RI, CT, NJ, DE, and MD + D.C. lgbtmap.org/equality-maps/….
Here are the relevant portions of CA's law: "This bill would prohibit a mental health provider, as defined, from engaging in sexual orientation change efforts, as defined, with a patient under 18 years of age."
“Sexual orientation change efforts” means any practices by mental health providers that seek to change an individual’s sexual orientation.
