Category: Claiming asexuality is celibacy or abstinence

Tackling Acephobia Within the LGBTQ+ Community
I tried to shorten it as much as I could, while also being informative as possible. Please be respectful in the comments if you disagree, or find something conflicting to what I found. There’s not a lot of information regarding asexuals so I did the best I could. Hope this helps, and thank you for supporting this video!
 
Also I did find another article after uploading this video about asexuality no longer being a mental disorder, so I’ll link that here. However, according to Psychology Today it’s still up for debate whether or not asexuality is an orientation or a disorder. So I’ll link both articles here. That’s my bad, sorry guys!

AL POSTO DEL CUORE  (The asexual part begins after 10 minutes)
Translation:

“There’s a thing we must say no firmly”
“If they didn’t censore me, go plug your children’s ears. I’m going to say it… Asexuals”
“Asexuals?”
“Asexuals!”
“What’s this? The ones who, despite summer, warmth, sun and sunsets, don’t have sex because they are single because it’s a bad moment, aren’t them?”
“It’s even worse! These persons aren’t interested in sex, they’ve completely ousted it from their lives and they claim it as a strong life choice”
“Where will we end? Do you realize it?”
“Is it a religious choice? Their religion doesn’t let them having sex?”
“No, they follow their nature”
“Do they really exist? Are there asexual men, too?”
“Dramatically, yes”
“What? There are males that aren’t interested in having sex?”
“Incredible, but true”
“I don’t believe it, ew”
“According to recent studies the 1% of the population has this disease, in 100 people one is asexual. They’re ill. Ew”
*laughs*
“It’s a movement that have always existed but recently these weird people – because they’re weird – reunited them in an international movement with the name of asexual and they claim their life choice without any shame. OMG, I’m still shocked. Ew”
“Who do they claim their choice to? If I make a choice, it’s my choice. I don’t tell the whole universe that I don’t make sex because… No, who cares?”
“Instead they don’t do it as a form of reaction to modern society in which we’re bombarded by sexual contents…”
“I was thinking. Are they living better than us? I mean, they don’t have distractions, women don’t have to wax, no complications…”
“I beg you to shut up, Paola, you’re talking like an asexual, ew. Because they say that their condition of I-L-L-N-E-S-S is a great freedom because they have more time to dedicate to the things that truly matter for them”
(…)
“Good news: asexuals surely don’t reproduce, so luckily they’re a dying breed”
“What a relief!”

“ASESSUALITÀ”: una nuova etichetta nata per giustificare un grave disturbo sessuale

Translation: Asexuality, a new label born to justify a serious sexual disease

Submitted and translated by “L’afobia esiste” @stop.afobia_ita

Excerpt, translated via Google translate:

«The lobby of LGBT associations, in fact, mistakenly tries to label these disorders as sexual orientations, even comparing “ASEXUALITY” to homosexuality, unfairly invoking criteria of freedom and non-discrimination to protect this minority. In reality, wanting to make a forced comparison, “ASEXUALITY” should be more properly compared to pedophilia, as both disorders are harmful sexual deviations. If pedophilia harms, unfortunately, third parties abused, “ASEXUALITY” is in any case detrimental to the personal balance of the person affected and any partner. The direct effect of asexual disorder is, of course, the impairment of one’s social and relational life conduct, which is affected by the difficulty of relating to a primary and atavistic drive such as sexual instinct. This damage is as serious as that caused by the opposite disorder, or hypersexuality, more commonly known as “nymphomania”.»

Shit People Say to Asexuals

Need more info on asexuality? I have a book out. Buy or borrow a copy of The Invisible Orientation: http://juliesondradecker.com/?page_id…
Want to know more about why these statements/questions are inappropriate? Read the info sheet with explanations:

If we come out to you, we probably don’t mind discussing our orientation, but pretty much anything recited in this video is probably a bad idea to say to us. . . . Don’t be afraid to talk to us or ask questions, but sometimes on the sensitive topics, you might be better off doing your own research. You may also like these for further reading/watching:

Letters to an Asexual #68 (“I don’t HATE aces; I pity them!”)

This is #68 of a series in which I read correspondence between me and people who have questions, comments, or–more often–misconceptions about asexuality. In this video, I read some comments on a mainstream media article where the fellow argues that nobody should hate or harass asexuals; we should all just feel sorry for them, and by no means should we treat them like this is a normal enough way to be. The difference must be acknowledged or someone might get the idea that it’s okay to live like that or something! Sheesh! 😀
