I think I need to realise that people aren’t as open-minded as me sometimes. Like, I’m an asexual who is romantically attracted to masculinity but masculine girls are still on the cards. They still fall under masculinity, right?

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

One Response to “Attraction”

  1. Callista

    I feel ya! Being asexual makes it hard enough to find potential dates without people going, “Uhh… but I’m a chick! You can’t possibly be attracted to me if you’re attracted to the masculine!” They seem never to have thought about the fact that being female doesn’t restrict your access to masculine traits.

    I’m ace too, and the things I’m attracted to are entirely independent of gender–compassionate, intelligent, unique people. It’s an awkward position to be in–it’s like I’m pansexual, only without the -sexual. I don’t fit in anywhere, really.

    I have to remind myself, it’s okay not to fit in anywhere.
