The 30 Day Asexuality Challenge asked what I’d imagine asexual pride looked like, and I thought an introductory campaign of sorts combating the erasure and invalidation asexuals experience upon coming out would be a good start. So I whipped these up! A couple of these I feel I need to remind myself of now and again, so I feel like they might be helpful to both aces and non-aces.

Feel free to distribute, but please don’t reupload to Tumblr; use the reblog function instead. 

Edit: I had put “opposite” gender for straight when it should say “different”. It’s now been corrected. My apologies!

Please reblog the corrected set!! Thank you :)

Let me explain sexuality to you

Everyone gets straight and gay, so I’m leaving those out.

You are now informed.

Actually, this really clears it up for me.

Acephobia in the LGBT+ Community from the documentary (A)sexuality. 

It is just…so fucking weird how threatened people feel when it comes to Asexuality.  I still can’t wrap my mind around it.

I’m so happy this post is being reblogged by LBGT+ people who aren’t asexual. I keep on reading posts by non-ace LGBT+ people of support to the ace community, and of being stunned by this reaction by a movement which should know better than to judge. AND THAT MAKES THIS ACE SO FREAKING HAPPY. The woman in the first photo expresses my sentiment. I know I belong in the queer/LGBTQIA movement. I want to belong. But I just don’t know if I’m welcome. I’m so happy that there are so many people on Tumblr who do not fall into the catagory of outright refusal of asexuality.

I know not a lot of people understand asexuality. And I know there’s confusion about it, about our experiences, and about how we fit in the movement. But let’s talk about this. Let’s have this conversation.

ANNE FRANK WAS BI

HOW DID NO ONE EVER TELL ME THIS

I FEEL FUCKING ROBBED

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_bisexual_people:_A-F#cite_note-221

!!!!!!!!!!

Excuse me while I memorize this list

I keep trying to tell people this but nobody believes me.

haha yea they edited bits of her diary out which included anne expressing attraction to girls and it’s even been banned from schools because of this!! fun fact

Looked this up and yeah it’s legit!

Unconsciously, I had these feelings even before I came
here. Once when I was spending the night at Jacque's, I could
no longer restrain my curiosity about her body, which she'd
always hidden from me and which I'd never seen. I asked her
whether, as proof of our friendiship, we could touch each
other's breasts. Jacque refused.

I also had a terrible desire to kiss her, which I did.
Every time I see a female nude, such as the Venus in my art
history book, I go into ecstasy. Sometimes I find them so
exquisite I have to struggle to hold back my tears. If only I
had a girlfriend!"

I own a copy of her diary in which these bits were not edited out. Reading her diary is a particularly emotional experience for me, and I feel a connection to Anne Frank, because she is a Queer Jew, just like I am. The fact that she is queer is an integral part of who she is, and it is inexcusable that it is hidden. It is a crime. And this censorship of her diary is just as disrespectful to her as tearing these books apart, as was done in Japan a few weeks ago. Her voice was silenced once by those who hated her for who she was. Do not let her be silenced yet again for the same reason.

people who think bisexuals change sexuality based on who we’re fucking are not invited to our future bisexual pirate kingdom in the bahamas

ejacutastic:

people who think lesbians are more accepted in society than gay men are idiots 

lesbians are more sexualized. they’re seen as a hot thing for straight men to watch but only if both girls are conventionally attractive. otherwise, it’s seen as disgusting or unnatural. that is not acceptance. that is fetishization.

what im saying is that bisexuals, pansexual, and asexuals should all join together so we can be in the fictitious trifecta. enough people will say we’re not real and we’ll all converge together in a massive, fierce mass only spoken of in myth.  dont come near us or you too will cease to exist

Sherlock Holmes, again, must have sexual impulses because human beings tend to — most human beings, not absolutely all, but that’s the majority. The fact is, he decides to put all that in an iron box to make his brain work better. Of course, the fact that that iron box bounces around and shakes and bangs from the inside is what makes the story interesting. He wants to rise above us like a snowcapped mountain, but he’s actually a volcano, and that’s where the story is. That’s where the story is. You know, you shove Irene Adler in front of him, and he just falls apart like most men would. — Steven Moffat (x)

Who ever wrote this is ignorant as fuck. You obviously know nothing about sexuality. It’s not the same thing, wanna know why? As someone who’s Transgendered I’ve been turned down by girls who are bisexual based on my gender identity. Not all bisexual girls are comfortable dating a girl with a penis. Gender and orientation is so much more complicated than the labels we throw on them. Fuck it, here’s a lesson in Gender Studies 101. And sorry if I make any mistakes as I’m not an expert.
Gender Identities:
Cisgender/Females/Males (People who identify as their biological sex.)
Transwomen/Transmen (People who identify with the opposite gender.)
Intersexed/Hermaphrodite (Born biologically both genders.)
Crossdresser/Femboy/Butchgirl (Someone who identifies as cisgender but denies the social gender norms.)
Gender-Fluid/BiGender (Someone who identifies with different genders and switches between them.)
Genderqueer/Androgynous/Third Gender (Someone who doesn’t identify with gender at all or someone who simultaneously has both gender characteristics.)
Sexual Orientations: 
Straight (Attracted to opposite sex.)
Gay/Lesbian (Attracted to same sex.)
Heteroflexible (Attracted to opposite sex with flexibility.)
Homoflexible (Attracted to same sex with flexibility.)
Fluctuating/Evolving/Curious (Someone who’s attraction isn’t certain and developing.)
Asexual (Someone who’s not attracted to any gender.)
Bisexual (Someone who’s attracted to females and males)
Pansexual (Someone who doesn’t see gender or isn’t important to them.)
Not to mention there’s things like “panromantic” who’s someone romantically attracted to all genders but may differ sexually. Romace and sexuality aren’t always congruent. But I’m not getting into that list. I need sleep. Personally, I’m a transgirl who’s homoflexible romantically. But sexually I’m still evolving and may be more open to the male sex. But when it comes to sexuality, I’m complicated as fuck.
There are most certainly people who claim to be panseuxal and don’t even understand the word. That may make them seem like a special little snowflake. But if you wouldn’t date someone because they’re a guy with a vagina, or because they’re a boy who likes to wear makeup. You’re probably not pansexual. But fuck it, why do we force labels on something so complex that most of us don’t even understand?
