“The true measure of a man is how he treats someone who can do him absolutely no good”
Hello my lovelies!
It is the last Pride month tutorial! I had originally planned to end this month with a colorful bang, but I decided instead that I would end things on a more personal note. If you find yourself wondering why I chose such an obscure flag to end things with, it is because this is how I identify myself.
For those of you that do not know, Demisexuality is marked by a lack of sexual attraction to people who you do not have a strong emotional bond with. It isn’t that we are all a bunch of prudes who frown upon open sexuality, we just genuinely do not feel any sort of sexual attraction to strangers. If we do, it can be very confusing and fleeting. Growing up, I was always referred to as a “late bloomer” when it came to dating and sex, and as much as it frustrated and confused me then, I now understand that it is completely normal and there are other people like me out there who feel the same way.
At the end of the day, I do not want this to be a big deal or some sort of huge coming out story, because I do not feel that I deserve that spotlight. I have never been attacked for who I love, what gender I identify with, or what type of relationships I maintain with others. Sure, I have heard the cliche jabs about my prudishness or lack of an active sex life, but no one until now actually knew that it was because I physically cannot feel those normal feelings, not because I choose not to. I have always had the ability to pass it off in our society and fake it, and I am grateful for that, but there are others who fall on the spectrum, just like you and me, who do not have that luxury. I hope that by being more open with the way my sexuality works, at least one person out there can feel less alone, especially if they feel the same way I do. That always has been and will always be my goal with this blog. I want to leave you all with just those thoughts of support in your mind instead of a tutorial, because especially during times like these, LGBTQIA people need you to accept them and need you to understand and lift their voices, not stand on the sidelines and watch. Always be the best supporter you can be.
That’s all I have for you guys today. Please remember to like, comment, and subscribe, it really helps me out. Also don’t forget to have a fabulous Friday!
