i just finally understood who i am, i'm a bi-romantic asexual. i'm scared to come out to my mom, i think it would of been easier to come out as a lesbian to her (she supports homosexuality) and i'm afraid to say that i'm bi-romantic to my friends too...(some of them are homophobic)

This is great, thank you so much for putting ace/lgbt representation out there. Just a tip (sorry if this comes across as angry or criticizing) just so you know, for bisexuality, it's not just same + opposite sex, it could be any combo of two genders. For example, a female who is bisexual could be attracted to males and agender people. Hope this helps! I really liked the comic!

Your comic is only for straight up Asexuals. There are way more types, but great start.

Really is quite a bit more complicated than this, but still- good job. :D Myself, I'm trans-male hetero-romantic (attracted to women), but still asexual. I can appreciate the beauty of women- and sure don't mind watching shows with beautiful women in them- but beyond that, eh. :p

I suppose I could be sexual with the right person. But that would have to be something AMAZING. I'd have to know them VERY well. And that doesn't happen often at all. ...So maybe I'm technically demisexual.

On the whole, though, I agree with ~SinfulFox below.

The whole issue of attraction though is much more complex than that, though. I'm attracted to guys - very much so, at times xD and am a total fangirl whenever a cute/hot guy goes strollin' by - but the asexuality comes in because I've never had the urge, desire, feeling, urge, or even thought to act out that attraction on a sexual level. Perhaps the no-attraction-at-all thing is more accurate for aromantic asexuals, but (unfortunately) I'm a hopeless romantic. I don't know what other people's fantasies include when they're checking out a hot guy (and I have a feeling I don't wanna know, since while I'm admiring their face and hair, they're looking a bit more south), but if a male sends me into a daydream, it usually involves something romantic, like spending time with them, going out on a date, hell - just talking about random stuff and hanging out, playing guitar hero, jumping around the room and scream-singing to our favorite songs... xD

But then again, I guess you have to keep it simple for the basic lessons, since when you get into the knitty gritty, it does tend to get confusing, especially to a sexual person... It makes sense to me, but if I can't comprehend what sexual attraction is, I bet they can't understand what it means for someone who simply lacks the experience.

I'm also a psychology student... o_o; That might have to do with why I contemplate all the details... >.>;

Anyways! Other than that though... xD was pretty good, and all around entertaining.

I'm aromantic, but this once confused my mother when she found out that I write romantic fan fiction (awkward talk, that one.) I also can't understand what love feels like, or even sexual attraction. Also, I'd love to learn phycology :)

It's good that we all learn to respect different people. I don't really understand how a person can be really asexual, but I deeply respect that we're free to make our choices, and shouldn't be discriminated for a reason like your sexual choices.
Go for it =)

There is actually different forms. Usually its just (for instance myself) we dont get sexually attracted. So if we see someone who would be considered good looking we don't think of the fact of that just by their looks we want them ours and we dont imagine having sex and we believe usually that sex isnt what proves love or that it has anything to do with it. Its very complicated to go into but it is indeed real. I have never felt the desire to have sex with a woman or man I have loved and I dont get the feeling I need to. :3 I hope this atleast helped some

Asexuality for the win. I'm bout ready to throw a brick at the next person who tells me it's just a fad or phase. Perhaps it is and perhaps it isn't, but it's a legitimate sexuality and should be respected as such. They should have a asexuality emoticon on DA or something of that manner.

I second this comment so hard. I'm sick and tired of people telling me I'll grow out of it, or I just haven't found the right person yet, or it's a hormonal imbalance.

I'm perfectly happy with who I am and wouldn't 'fix' myself for anything or anyone.

I'd say im partially asexual, partialy hetro (Because my sexual interest in girls is very small - i wouldn't dream on looking at/watching porn)

My friend asked my why i wasn't really into porn one time, and i told him i just don't see the big deal about it. Predictably, he jumped to the conclusion that i was gay. Typical...Asexuality is largly unheard of, which is a great shame reallly

Ew... it's funny how quickly people will tag an inappropriate label onto you, one that they're comfortable with but you're not. It is a shame... people need to realize that the world isn't divided up between gay and straight.

Definitely. I'll talk about girls I like to people (I'm female, but identify as androgynous/male) and people make such a big deal out of it. It's like I have to go back in my conversation and figure out what was so surprising that I said. XD

gahaha. I'm hetro, but I still find the whole asexuality thing awesome, and want to be a part of it. I know its not a phase or a fad, but it ties in with what I believe in, especially what the other club was saying. They accept people who might have the attractions, but don't have any intent. I am one of those people.
