Groups

It's Pride Month, and for a lot of people it means happiness about being able to proudly be yourself, no matter your sexual orientation but there is a small group of people still ostracized and looked down upon because of their sexual orientation. Or more precisely their LACK of sexual orientation. 

I am an asexual. 

It is a term that I didn't choose but the one given to people of my orientation. I feel absolutely no sexual attraction to ANYTHING nor ANYONE. I have been to a doctor to have my hormones tested (something you SHOULD do, to rule out any medical reasons that can cause lacking attraction). 

A lot of people try to come out as asexual and truly are but are met with a lot of.... negativity and condescending. This is sadly, in my experience, more common among the gay community than anywhere else. I've since stopped going to pride events because of some of the bullying and hatred I am met with. I do all I can to support pride still, but I do it from a distance. So I plead with you, if you come across someone who has the bravery to be who they are in a way that isn't hurting someone. Please let them. Don't put the same hatred on someone that you had to trudge through or maybe even dodged. Be excellent to each other. 

So why make a journal no one will see? Well that's a part of it, but there's a hope I can reach someone who pauses before they make a comment. Think about your words. Think about how you'd like to be treated and be yourself and let others be who they are. It's taken me a long time to be proud of who I am, and I'm still not there. Don't rob someone of their moments of pride.

Remember to treat others how you, yourself, wish to be treated.
