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!

All definitions are also found on Wikipedia, not linked here, but google it and it’ll be like the first thing to pop up.

Acephobia & Anti-asexual hate crime

Excerpt:

«What is anti-asexual hate crime?

Any offence should be treated as an anti-asexual hate crime if the person who experienced it or anyone else feels it was an expression of acephobia. Anti-asexual hate crime can include verbal abuse and violence from neighbours or strangers. Because people’s asexual identity is not always visible to strangers, anti-asexual abuse can often be concentrated in settings where the targeted person and perpetrator know each other. That can include verbal abuse or unwanted sexual touching from acquaintances and anti-asexual domestic abuse from family or partners. This also includes actual and threats of so-called “corrective” rape, to “fix” the person’s orientation.

These crimes are less easy to recognise but it is equally important to record and address them in a manner that addresses their motivation of hostility. To qualify to be recorded as a hate incident, a report needn’t include anti-asexual language. It is enough for a reporting person to perceive that it was motivated by acephobia.»
