It seems to be a common thread. My mother told me not to tell people and it was sad when I came out to her.

it just really frustrates me, bc my mom said all the cliches about asexuality– “you’re too young to have enough life experience to know these kind of things,” “personally i think that all that asexual stuff is people trying to fit in,” “it’s only because you’ve never dated anybody before. how do you know you won’t like it?”

& i wanted to argue back but at the time i didn’t have any words bc i was too busy fighting back tears and i should probably stop talking about it before i start crying again

anyway thank you for your message & don’t worry too much about me 🙂
