- Things I am looking for in a person are:
honesty, compassion, a love and respect for nature, a friend, a pen pal
- About me
I`ve known probably since I was in highschool that I was asexual. I grew up seeing my friends go gaga over the next cutie, listening to them speak about how attracted to them they were, only to realize after years of this that I didn`t feel or react the same way to people as did the norm. I only learned about asexuality during my early twenties and in retrospect, I wish there would have been more information about this readily available for youth (and adults too) seeing as the struggle between adhereing to societal standards and doing what I felt was right was a very real one, and I don`t think for a minute that I`m the only one who has gone through this.
This being said, my personal experiences concerning the discovery that I was asexual made me think of how much more advantageous it would be for asexual people from the Ottawa rejion to have a go-to group on a site like this… I have so many dreams and ideas on how to involve the community in celebrating asexual pride and raising awareness of this sexual rientation, but a community isn`t made of just one individual, it`s made of all of us here in the Asexual Pride group.
My big dream is to unite people from around the country in order to have our place in a pride parade. My goal is to, with enough people, raise awareness by means of social media, creating `meet and greets` and maybe, one day, have asexuality recognised amongst the main groups of (non-hetero) sexualities in and out of Pride week. In a world that`s so sex driven, from media and propaganda to our social lives, it`s no small challenge admitting that you, in fact, don`t feel any sexual attraction to anyone or only do under very specific circumstances. I think it`s about time that the public`s eyes are opened to the reality that, contrary to popular belief, there are some people who don`t feel any or much sexual attraction and it`s ok!
After what the government has done for the LGBT community since Justin Trudeau has won the elections, I think people might be more receptive to the reality of asexuality now more than ever.
