4 things you need to know about asexuality
As people are becoming more aware of the different spectrums of the LGBTQ community, there are many who do not fully understand what it means to be asexual. Some try to identify what it's all about and quickly draw conclusions by hurting the feelings of any asexual person they know. To avoid such unintentional ignorance, it is always helpful to know what asexuality is.

Asexuality is considered to be the lack of sexual attraction to any person, of any gender. An asexual person shows almost no or little interest in sexual activities even with those persons who feel attracted.

It is not a disorder

Many people assume it is a disorder because it is believed that our bodies are predisposed to wanting sex. It is not a hormonal imbalance or a change in mood. It is a sexual orientation.

You do not need the 'right person' to be asexual

You can not tell an asexual person that he will stop being asexual the moment he finds the 'right' one. Asexual people just do not feel sexually attracted to people in general.

Asexual people may want a relationship

These people do not feel a sexual connection, but they certainly have a mental and emotional connection with people. And so they want emotional and romantic relationships.

You can not 'look asexual'

There is no clear way how asexual people look. Many people believe that asexual people are less attractive and thus, they do not resonate attraction with sexual feelings. Asexual people may or may not make the effort to look attractive, but that does not mean that being attractive can not be asexual or, if you are less attractive, you are more likely to be asexual.
