I'm a 39 year old woman and live in the U.S. I'm asexual and celibate and a white convert to Islam. This blog is a place for me to share information of interest on asexuality, LGBTQ issues, queer Muslim topics, feminism, and other subjects I think are worthwhile.
If you give yourself time, you will figure out the logic to your feelings. If you have already come out as asexual, chances are you have encountered that person who says that your explanation isn’t enough. You are not responsible for convincing them that your feelings are ‘real’. If they doubt you from the get-go, chances are very good that they are not interested in listening to you. Their offer to listen to your “reasons—-if you have any”, is a lie, so take the high road and let them sulk. If they really want to hear the answer that badly, they can wait.
You are not responsible for convincing anyone of your feelings. All you need to have is the confidence to say what they are, and then to move forward.
A great post, and I recommend reading the whole thing.
