what does it mean to be asexual?

An asexual person (“ace”, for short) is simply someone who does not experience sexual attraction, experiences it very rarely OR ONLY IN SPECIFIC CIRCUMSTANCES.

this is the asexual flag. the black stripe represents asexuality; the grey stripe represents grey-asexuals and demisexuals; the white stripe represents allies; and the purple stripe represents community.

I am currently in my mid-20s, and I confidently identify as asexual. It's simple to me; I don't feel sexual attraction, and I never have. But my experiences with my identity have been rocky.

means to me

I first discovered I was asexual five years ago, when I was about 22 years old, by reading a Facebook post. Before then I was so clueless I never even knew that sexual attraction was a thing, but the more research I did, the more it sounded like me.
