Asexuality: Sexual Orientation or Not?

Post by SCH0206 on Sun May 20, 2018 11:28 am

There's some debate among asexuals concerning whether asexuality is a sexual orientation or not. Personally, I don't think it is because lack of something doesn't count as something. To me, it's like saying that bald is a hair type or that atheism is a religion. What do you guys think?

I consider "agnosticism" to be a more neutral position, but I digress.

What do you guys think?
I can give a short rundown.

Here's a post I made 5 years ago.

I'm undeterminedrep, and I think distantwarning is Admin.

And here's a post I made 2 years ago where I give my own sexual orientation construct pitch http://iamfortress.forumotion.com/t162-alternatives-to-sexual-orientations

Which really sums up my own thoughts I think, in that sexual orientation is an arbitrary distinction. And very ill-defined. So really, it just depends on who defines it.

EDIT: Politically I guess I'd vote it as a sexual orientation. But I'm kind of confused as to why people would be arguing it not to be. Guess I'll have to attend their pep-rally to see what's up.

It's definitely not a sexual orientation.I used to think that way because of the influence of a certain site but I quickly realized it didn't make any sense.
