Well, a reaction asexuals tend to get a lot is that we must be repressed. Something bad must have happened to us when we were tiny, and we’re repressing our sexuality to avoid dealing with it. While that’s true in some cases [of the human experience—it has nothing to do with your little blip on the sexuality spectrum], I know that I personally felt repressed before I discovered asexuality as an orientation. I knew I wasn’t having these experiences that were supposed to be normal, these experiences that all of my friends were having. I tried to make myself have fantasies or some kind of drive. When I learned it’s legit, there are more aces out there, and we’re not insane, I felt much more comfortable with myself. I don’t deny part of myself anymore. So the inner turmoil: It was there, I went through phases of being troubled about it—although never anywhere near that level; but it completely vanished the weekend I Googled “asexuality.”
