To claim sexuality or not claim sexuality is to become subject to a set of social enforcements that is often racialized.
David’s partner says it is very different for her to claim asexuality as an Asian-American woman because Asian-American women are often desexualized.
What it means for someone to think of themselves as asexual is very different for people of different socioeconomic, racial, and ethnic groups – especially those that are already marginalized Much of the language of the asexual community is geared toward people says David, and the community has continued on a trend of racial homogeneity.
As the community moves from online to offline organizing, he has seen an upward trend in ethnic and racial diversity, which he suspects is related to the expansion of options for diverse spaces and diverse ways of participating in the community.
David thinks that there’s something wrong with how we talk and think about intimate relationships.
He thinks considering people single if they don’t have a certain kind of relationship is hurtful.
Many asexual people choose to wait a little while until they trust the person they are seeing before coming out.
This is not trickery; it’s waiting to reveal a marginalized identity until trust has been established.
When people are seeing each other, the sexuality of the relationship doesn’t have to be an even split between what the two people want.As a leading activist, David and fellow advocates are trying proactively to address this issue as a community, but whiteness is very entrenched still in the way asexual identity is talked about.It’s not an asexual person’s responsibility to come out until asexuality is widely accepted.However, something that still confuses people is how asexual people navigate dating!So, in order to demystify this concept for people, I spoke with two asexual activists in order to try to better understand dating in the asexual community.
