Мумми-тролль, мечтающий стать Снусмумриком.
...это больно.

because I didn’t know what asexuality was until I saw it online
because for the longest time, I thought I was just broken
because finding out there was a label for people like me, that there were others like me, was one of the best days of my life
because people still react like it’s impossible, or will go away once I meet the right person
because no one knows what it is and it shouldn’t be my responsibility to educate every single one of them
because I am told that I will get over it
because asexuality is used as a trope for people who are cold and heartless and don’t know how to love
because we are compared to robots or plants
because people think we have been assaulted or traumatized in some way, and that this is just a reaction, and not just who we are
because there is no mainstream media character I can point to that has been identified as asexual
because when even thinking about characters who may be asexual, the only ones that come to mind are written that way as jokes or to make a point about their personality
because people still think the a is for allies
because there are kids growing up right now that feel just like I did and they won’t learn about asexuality until long after they think they’re broken too
because everyone deserves to see themselves in their heroes
because we exist and we are here and you can’t keep ignoring us
