I am someone that considers themselves asexual and sex-repulsed. I've had a traumatic experience that I believe it tied to it, but I'll leave it at that because my backstory isn't the point.
I've been really upset ever since mainstream culture decided to tack on asexuality to the LGBT spectrum. I don't consider my lack of sexuality a sexuality. Sex is the last thing I want to hear about, when it's a MASSIVE topic of discussion in literally any LGBT circle. I'm not "gay". I don't have "pride" for my "sexuality". I'm definitely not "sex positive". I think I'm very far from the rest of this community when it comes to political beliefs and views on sexuality and I've gotten upset hearing nonstop graphic sexual chatter in my so called "safe spaces" online.
So why do the powers that be insist that I be lumped in with those people? I've gotten banned from a few asexual subreddits for even daring to say this and I'm actually horrified. It feels predatory that asexuals literally do not have a comfortable place that they don't have to hear about sex or pornography and now it's considered "progressive" to put us right next to our triggers.
