“hey i feel like the people that follow this page would really like The Disastrous Life of Saiki K – he’s psychic so basically he sees through people’s skin and doesn’t understand attraction/romance whatsoever and gets into a ton of antics where the really attractive popular girl falls in love with him and he has to do ridiculous stuff to evade her”

“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.”

“I’m a comic writer and author and I’ve been dreaming up this new story about an organization for queer and trans folk that sort of act as freedom fighters for the community around the world. One of the leaders is an older trans woman who acts as a grandmother figure to the rest of the characters and she’s very integral to the final conclusion. So my question is, if I were to make her asexual what sort of features or aesthetics would the ace community like to see represented in a character like this? Or is it misguided for me to represent this character as ace for any reasons I may be over looking?”

“Hi there, I don’t normally write into Facebook groups, but I thought I’d pluck up my courage and send this in. Since it’s so rare to find any kind of asexual representation on tv, I was thrilled to find a main character on the Netflix show Bojack Horseman come out as ace. Not only that, but over several episodes his friends prove to be supportive and accepting of him. I thought I’d pass along the info and a screen cap as I don’t have a lot of friends who would really understand why I was so excited lol! Maybe others on this page would find it as encouraging as I did. Thank you also for maintaining such a friendly and supportive group here!”
