There's been a lot of people saying that asexuals shouldn't be apart of the LGBTQ+ community. They say that they 'already have rights' or 'are already accepted'. This is very wrong. Asexuals are apart of the community no matter what. There's a whole spectrum of ace identities and people can identify as ace for all sorts of reasons like trauma or neglect. Just because somebody doesn't feel sexual attraction doesn't mean they can't feel romantic attraction. 'What about asexual aromantic people?' Again, there is also a whole spectrum of aromantic identities. Ace-aro people can sometimes be pressured to get into relationships because of hate from their family or (unsupportive) friends. Ace-aro people can still desire a romantic relationship but just not experiance attraction. Conclusion: ace and aro people are 100% valid and are defiantly apart of the community. Here's the Ace/Aro spectrum links if you need them.
