Response to “When sex just isn’t your cup of tea”

There was an article posted in the Toronto Star during the Pride weekend which rubbed me the wrong way - mostly because it was written so short-sighted it seemed unable to identify how judgmental its tone was.

After the horrid puns about what asexuals would hold and wear to a parade; the quote that seemingly pushed me over the edge was about three quarters of the way through:

Asexuals have easier lives than we do, or at least more agency and expansion, because sex never corralled them. Their world is open.

Imagine never having endured sexual/romantic loss. It must be nice.

I try not to swear but - what the fuck?

After paragraphs of literally questioning why a type of sexuality was even at a parade, they go on to generalize about a lifestyle they know nothing about.  It would be as if someone starting exclaiming how bisexuals/pansexuals have it easier because they have a bigger pool of people to pick sexual partners from.

No, that’s not how it works.

Considering the article referenced an article which summed up the issues the asexual community faces - you can’t seemingly ignore it then go on to generalize about the whole premise.

A response the article did receive summarized this:

Heather Mallick proclaims that the lives of asexuals are “easier than most” while ignoring the unique challenges we face.

We are perpetually fighting to have our existence acknowledged against people trying to “cure” us, and for our families and communities to recognize our significant relationships. Then there’s homophobic bullying and harassment many (if not most) of us face because we are and/or are perceived to be LGB (and T).

We march in Pride parades so that others will start treating us a fully human, and there isn’t anywhere else for us to go. We had our historic International Asexuality Conference to share our experiences with other aces.

I hope in the future people will be more respectful of (asexual) people and experiences they know little about.

C.J. Chasin, on behalf of Ace Toronto

I’m not going to argue that asexuals face more challenges then others, but at the same time - its a sexual orientation outside of the societal and cultural norm and therefore will face challenges regardless.
