You can’t split sexuals into heterosexual and non-heterosexual.
You can’t split homosexuals into men and women.
You can’t split women into white and non-white.
You can’t split men into rich and poor.
Just like you can’t split asexuals into heteroromantic and queer.

Just gonna post this again, in an easily-rebloggable format, because I still see people arguing about it.
Before someone ~calls me out~, I don’t believe there is such a thing as asexual privilege. This blog’s name (and the “Asexual privilege checklist”) are a tongue-in-cheek response to the “Sexual Privilege” checklist. I know no one is going to actually acknowledge that I said this — I’ve said it a million times before after all — but it’s worth a shot.
Anonymous asked: I have yet to see ONE SINGLE ASEXUAL PERSON claim that they are MORE oppressed than people in the queer community. Not one.
No, the "Sexual Privilege Checklist" does not count, because a person having privilege in one aspect of their life does not mean that they do not suffer from systematic oppression in other areas. If such a thing exists, a queer person could have "sexual privilege" and still be more oppressed than an asexual person, depending on what other types of privilege or lack thereof those individuals have, and absolutely NOBODY I HAVE SEEN is contesting that.
There is nothing privileged about being queer. There is nothing on the “Sexual Privilege Checklist” that applies to all sexual people; most of it only applies to heterosexuals, and the stuff that applies to queers is bullshit that isn’t actually “privilege” at all. (Hence me including stuff like ‘I don’t have to worry about STDs’ on my “asexual privilege” list.)
Anonymous asked: You seem quite angry. I was just wondering what the point of this blog is and what you're trying to say?
Sorry but after a few pages, I'm just confused.
I really doubt you read “a few pages”, or else you would have seen me already answering this question. To reiterate, the point of this blog is:
- "Sexual privilege" does not exist.
- "I only feel sexual attraction toward someone I have an emotional connection with" is not a sexual orientation.
- Heteroromantic asexuals are not queer.
And damn right I’m angry, people keep not actually reading what I’m saying.
tallteenturtle asked: You say that that some asexuals claim they have it harder than sexuals, or that they are somehow better than them. But I have NEVER come across any asexuals, online or in real life, that think this. Where are you incontering these kind of people?
Anonymous asked: There are laws in a number of states establishing non-consummation of a marriage as grounds for annulment, which offers fewer and less legal protections than divorce.
Is it not true that both partners have to agree to annul the marriage in that case, though? The courts can’t just peek into someone’s bedroom and say, “Nope, you’re not having sex, we’re annulling your marriage.”
