Maybe this strange and interesting plant displayed on my blog will attract followers.
WOW. WHAT A STRANGE AND INTERESTING PLANT
I’ve never seen anything like it before, Where did you get it?
You remember that total eclipse of the sun about a week ago?
That’s fine! I do disagree though. I definitely think it falls under queer. That’s what the A in lgbtqa stands for after all!
So there’s gender identify, sexual attraction, and romantic attraction. So an asexual person can be cisgender, and attracted to the opposite sex, but they wouldn’t be heterosexual (unless that’s what they choose to call themselves) They would be heteroromantic asexual…. hopefully that makes sense? But it’s really up to the person and what they identify as. They could consider themself a straight asexual or a heterosexual asexual or whatever other terms they choose to use. (and you should always respect a person’s identity but you know that already)
I can see how someone who is asexual might not like being lumped in under queer but I think that’s up to the person. Most asexuals I know (including myself) consider it queer though.
IMO that’s part of why it’s so important to have “queer” as an umbrella term that’s actually a word rather than a string of alphabet soup letters (although I also do like GSRM, and while I’m aware that that has some problematic history behind it, let’s be real - so does queer, so does gay, so do most of the terms we use that aren’t clinical, and that will continue to be the case until we’ve had enough cultural power for long enough that we can define words rather than reclaim them)
Anyway, where was I? Ah, yeah. It’s important to have an umbrella term because it makes us look at what being queer means. And it’s not just “being attracted to your own gender” - for a lot of us, it’s having attraction patterns that fall outside of the the cisheterosexual paradigm. And a consistent lack of attraction is a pattern, too.
(Of course, it’s totally fair for any given asexual person to decide whether or not they consider themself queer, but that’s very different from having someone who is not asexual act as gatekeeper to the queer community and say that they aren’t queer enough for the queer party.)
Hold on, let me put away fucking Henry VIII’s milk
