This is a pretty special commission I just had PsychologistTongue do for m
e on a recent discovery, finding a better more exact fit on what I am. Their upload is HERE
if can comment and fave there also!
Back in 1995 before found the fandom I was straight, or thought I was and just not really having much luck finding the right girl to love and be attracted to. Once found the furry fandom I then learn about gays and bisexuals and finding out a. they aren't bad people at all and b. I wasn't straight,, found a guy i liked... so that makes me bi right? have been in a handful of relationships since and while I felt i loved them, sex just wasn't ever really something I was in any care to do. Guess I'm just broken.
Fast forward to a few weeks ago when pride month was going on I noticed a handful of folks drawing themselves in colored shirts with different stripes then the rainbow pride shirt i recall from the early 2000's... Learned about the Asexuality one and read about it.... and that fit me like a glove. Much better than bisexual did. Moved me to tears with joy learning i'm NOT broken, and that asexuals can and have been able to find compatible partners who understand sex isn't really your thing or main way care to show/prove you love them.
While this doesn't fix my many other quirks and issues to sort out, this is a HUGE step to make me better explain to others why have had a tough time finding mr or mrs right. I wont keep beating up on myself thinking i am broken on being able to love someone and them understand.
So for those who worked hard to make such a flag/set of colors exist to represent us asexuals or 'Aces' out there, THANK YOU. I hope to meet more like me to be able to connect with and learn from. Its a huge step in the right direction to me hopefully finding the right companion.
