posts about asexuality that are quick to point out that not all ace individuals are sex repulsed but don’t take into account those who are don’t sit with me very well.
in some cases there’s a certain element of trying to bring perceived “normalcy” to the asexual spectrum when there’s the quick “not all of us hate sex!” addendum, seeing as heteronormativity includes the desire/comfort of having sex. if it’s not handled well or carefully, that comment can be perceived as trying to crush negativity towards asexuality by introducing a typicality, which is harmful in a lot of ways.
asexuality is a spectrum which means the needs and wants and comforts of the individuals are vast and varying, and any attempt at negating one for the benefit of the whole is unproductive in the long run.
Got a 95 on my first biology exam and a 92 on the second one and now I’ve just got the third exam and the final, and excepting the final the lowest test score is dropped :’)
