“I identify as asexual or demi and have tried to talk to my friends about this but they laugh in my face and tell me im not. I cant blame them really, they have seen me kiss a person on a night out and associate this with being horny. Its sad because it took a lot for me to try and open up to them. They still tease me about that night and have called me a whore and slutty and it hurts every time they do because im already beating myself up about it enough. In my drunk logic, I kissed the person because i wanted to understand myself more and see if I felt any kind of sexual attraction (I still don’t think I do). I guess I wanted to share this because its not a stereotypical asexual thing to do and thought it may give people an opportunity to talk about similar scenarios or opinions on this”
