A sexual orientation often forgotten!!!
Warren and Kyran provided us with an illuminating workshop on Asexuality. One way of defining an asexual person is as: someone who does not experience directed sexual attraction. Just getting into that definition led to some very interesting conversation, questions and comments. Asexuality is a sexual orientation, rather than a lifestyle in itself. But the issues surrounding it made the ALCC a perfect place for discussion.
We learned about the different kinds of asexuality… there is certainly a grey zone ( as in so many things! ). We also discovered two fictional characters who are put forward as Asexual poster children : Dr. Who and Sherlock Holmes. Made sense to me.
And thanks to Kyran and Warren for giving us those cool asexuality pins!
AVEN (The Asexality Visibility and Education Network) http://www.asexuality.org, was offered as a great resource for information on the subjet.
