Asexual Pride

Description

My almost out of time contribution for this year's pride month, I chose to depict my orientation. The invisible orientation.

"The word for that is abstinence;
There is not scientific proof for asexuality so it's fake;
Asexuals are just ugly people who can't get laid;
If you have a poor sentimental life I feel sorry for you, but don't fill my head with this gender bullshit;
You have no idea what you're missing;
It's just not possible for a human to be asexual;
Asexuality cannot be real as it goes against evolution;
You haven't met the right person yet;
It's called celibacy;
If you tried it and didn't like it you just did it wrong;
You're secretly gay;
Find a guy that properly fucks you and you'll stop bitching;
If you're sexually repulsed you need therapy;
You're just shy or scared, this is an excuse;
I could fix you, give me a chance;
You probably just never had an orgasm;
Everyone needs sex, you're just repressing your desires;
If it's really love, you'll want sex;
You can't be asexual if you masturbate;
You're not asexual, it's called having a low sex drive;
Asexuality is a mental illness;
Asexuals are just people who want to be special;
There are only three sexualities: heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual;
Asexuals are just immature;
Unless you can reproduce via mitosis, you're not asexual."

How many of these have you heard in your life?
[Courtesy of various Asexuality-bingos out there on the Internet plus some real life experiences.]
The last one in particular cracks me up; do you know the meaning of the word context? Of course we're talking human beings, hence it's not about asexual reproduction, but asexual orientation. I know I'm not a starfish, thank you for your concern.

[Wikipedia]
Asexuality is the lack of sexual attraction to others, or low or absent interest in or desire for sexual activity. It may be considered the lack of a sexual orientation, or one of the variations thereof, alongside heterosexuality, homosexuality and bisexuality. It may also be an umbrella term used to categorize a broader spectrum of various asexual sub-identities.
Asexuality is distinct from abstention from sexual activity and from celibacy, which are behavioral and generally motivated by factors such as an individual's personal or religious beliefs. Sexual orientation, unlike sexual behavior, is believed to be "enduring". Some asexual people engage in sexual activity despite lacking sexual attraction or a desire for sex, due to a variety of reasons, such as a desire to pleasure themselves or romantic partners, or a desire to have children.

Happy pride month everyone! - a bit late I know xD
Everyone out there, spread the knowledge, spread the love, be free to be who you truly are.
