“Starting this little story by stating that I am Asexual.
I started watching BoJack Horseman on Netflix just as some background noise, but by the end of season 1 I ended up getting pretty interested in it. There is a character named Todd in this show. today as I watched season 3 episode 12, Todd had a conversation with a girl who likes him, and who he also loves spending time with. she tells him that she doesnt know what he is thinking, that it feels like he likes her, but doesn’t, but does. She asks him if he is gay, and that it is ok if he is. Todd replies, saying “No, I’m not gay… At least I don’t think I am… but… I don’t think i’m straight ether….. I dont know what I am… I think I might be nothing”
This really shocked me. I labeled myself as a “nothing” for years and years before I found out that asexuality was a thing. I really didn’t think I needed any representation, but when he said that I smiled, and I cried. I’m still crying. I’ve never seen an asexual represented on any show in my life and I never thought it would affect me so much. I’m so happy.
I didn’t know where to share this because I don’t think anyone I know would understand the feeling. I just thought it would be an interesting event in media for you guys to know about.”
