“I’m a demisexual who’s terrified of telling their friends about this. I told a guy I thought was my friend a couple of months ago, and he told me that I was making up an entire sexuality, and that I ‘couldn’t be asexual, because you don’t seem asexual to me.’ As though his perceptions of me have anything to do with the way I feel. And also, just deciding that my sexuality isn’t a thing. But back on point, I’m scared about telling people about this now, and I’m worried about being accepted for me. Does anyone have any advice?”
