    "I" stands for intersex (people born with both male and female genitalia)

    What does the "I" stand for? I guess I've never seen any version of that abbreviation longer than LGBTQ (though I realize that's not all there is, of course)

    There have definitely been times in my life when I wouldn't say I was so much sex-repulsed or asexual, but was more so just paranoid and somewhat scared of sex. I just absolutely hated it. I'm sure it was a combination of hormone problems and bad experiences, but I still. It's not so bad now, but I still don't really have much sex drive... also, I think it's pretty common for teenagers to feel the way you guys are feeling. I'm not trying to dismiss your feelings in anyway, as some of you very well may be asexual or sex-repulsed, but I know lots of people who felt that way growing up and now as adults actually enjoy sex. Sometimes those feelings are just a sign that you're not ready yet and could change with age, but only you will really know how you feel about these things on the inside. and, of course, if they do change, it does;t disqualify the feelings you have now either.

    It could be hormone levels, I suppose. I'll admit I don't know much about the biology of libido. I also identify as a sex-repulsed asexual, and I haven't even bothered to come out because of the same things you're talking about. Especially in high school, I feel people would have a difficult time with it.
    Thank you for reading! Cute

    Yes! Thank you for this. I feel like this article understands. I think, though, that I would consider myself both sex-repulsed and asexual. But I can understand that others want it or enjoy it, and that's fine in my opinion - each to their own. It just bothers me when someone wants to have a chat regarding it and then, when I reveal that I just don't see the point or attraction of it myself (no I don't want kids), they go all up in arms about it. "You're not serious; how can you not want to have it?" "You've just not found the right guy yet".

    I think my social phobia also plays a part in it. But yeah, no, I definitely don't have any desire for it at all. I guess it's something to do with an individual's hormone levels?

    I also thought'd I'd tack on that in LGBTQIA, the A stands for Asexual and not Ally Mr. Green I see people making this mistake a lot...

    Great, simple article.
    It's nice to see more visibility regarding asexuality, and that you made a point to underline the fact that there exists a variety of romantic orientations, and gender identities, was definitely a bonus.

    You may be asexual, or you may just simply be sex-repulsed. I'd encourage you to do some research (Tumblr had good info) and see for yourself. But in all honesty, don't worry too much about labeling yourself. Hope I could be of help!

    I like this article. I, myself, am a bit...confused...about what my orientation is. But, to be honest the whole idea of sex...it scares me and it seems a bit gross. Like, I don't find anything appealing about it or anything attractive about people's...nether regions, let's say. But, I've found people (male and female) to be attractive looking and have developed crushes on people that seemed really nice and interesting personality-wise. So, I feel like maybe asexuality might describe me...maybe.

    I actually consider myself an asexual as well. I always wondered a lot about a few things about it, but I could never find much to provide me with more information. I know that it's often having no sexual attraction to a person. I also don't believe that sex is what defines love in a relationship. To me, it's having someone who loves you as you are and no matter what you are. Not only that but to have someone you consider to be your best friend.

    I've had fake friends before who did nothing but... excuse my language but... fuck like rabbits every single day. I kept thinking how that's not really love at all. I mean, I can understand occasional sex every now and then... but to do it every single day and think you're in love... no. That's just what I believe in though.
