My school is the best.
Here are 10 famous names that we all need to associate with bisexuality.
this list really is nothing new but it is important to recognize how crucial it is to not erase someone’s sexual identity based on their current partner. erasure leads to a veritable pandora’s box of physical and mental health issues for all people, but disproportionately affects bisexual-identified individuals the most.
The Asexual Story Project is a place where people who identify with the asexual community can share their personal stories about being asexual, coming out, relationships, or anything their heart desires.
At present the site only contains a handful of stories, but hopefully over the next few months the site will continue to grow as more people submit. A huge thank you to everyone who has contributed so far!
You can submit a story on this page or by emailing the project: asexualstoryproject(at)gmail.com.

ASL Interpretation of Gotye’s Somebody That I used to know by a really hot tattooed butch. With a queer pompadour.
It’s sort of like the Goddess was like “Bevin, you’re having a hard day, here’s something to make it a bit better.”
I was recently given a small pamphlet of info on Hormone Replacement Therapy, with a focus on estrogen. This pamplhet was given to me by a nurse at Callen-Lorde Community Health Center, where I’m receiving care during my transition. This pamphlet has valuable information, and I couldn’t find it anywhere else online, so I wanted to scan and post it. You can access it here. Please share!

Oh, and while we’re talking about sex-repulsed people:
- It’s okay if you’re sex-repulsed because you have experienced sexual abuse or trauma in your past.
- It’s okay if you’re sex-repulsed because sex feels painful, uncomfortable or frightening to you.
- It’s okay if you’re sex-repulsed and there’s no “cause” for it, it’s just how you’ve always been.
- It’s okay if you feel sex-repulsed sometimes and not repulsed at other times, or if you’ve become more/less sex-repulsed over time.
- It’s okay to be afraid of sex.
- It’s okay to think that sex is disgusting.
- It’s okay to like reading/watching fictional sex but not want it in real life.
- It’s okay to be repulsed by some sexual things but not by other sexual things.
- None of the above things make your feelings weird, messed-up or unhealthy.
- You don’t need to “overcome” your dislike of sex. If you’re happier without sex, then that’s great, you don’t need to change.
- If you want to become more comfortable with sex, or if you think therapy will help you be happier with yourself, then that’s fine, too.
- If your partner wants you to do something sexual that you’re not comfortable with, then they’re the one in the wrong, and they need to stop. Your feelings and comfort are important, and you never owe sex to anyone.
- If your partner wants you to change, or to stop being sex-repulsed or asexual, then they are wrong. You deserve a partner who loves you the way you are, respects your feelings, and doesn’t ask you to change for them.
- You do not need to be sex-positive, or willing to have sex, in order to be a “healthy” or “normal” asexual person.
- Some sex-repulsed people aren’t asexual-spectrum. All of the above applies to them, too!
- Whatever your feelings about sex are, it is perfectly okay to feel the way you do, and there is nothing bad, abnormal or wrong about your feelings.
