Sexual Identity

Sexual identity is different from gender identity. It’s about you are attracted to.

Asexual: A person who does not feel sexual attraction. They don’t experience arousal or sexual desire at the sight of other human beings. Many people are just born asexual, the same way some are born heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual or pansexual.

They do not become heterosexual or homosexual depending on if they are currently dating the opposite or the same gender. They are bisexual because they can be attracted to both sexes. That being said, please note that bisexuality doesn’t mean that they are equally attracted to all people all the time.

Homosexuality: A person who is primarily attracted to the same gender. I highly recommend the series “One day at a Time” which portrays a young homosexual teen. It is rare to get proper representation in the entertainment industry.

You are the person best equipped to know your own identity.

Asexual. Bisexual. Homosexual. Straight. Pansexual. It’s really none our business. Somehow we have to move past this weird idea that we all need to know exactly what everyone else is or isn’t. We don’t. Sexual labels trap people into lives that aren’t their own. They also make it confusing for teens who are trying to figure out where they fit in. They also trap people from being able to learn and grow and even change their minds if they need to. If we’d all get our noses out of other people’s sexuality, and simply did not care, we would all be happier.
