Here was no storm, no fury. There was some new quiet in her, but it didn’t shrink or wilt her. Rather, it seemed to enlarge her. She was no mere weapon as she was trained to be, but a woman in full command of her power, unbowed and unbroken, and that was a dangerous thing. — Laini Taylor
I got this from a friend who was reading majority of the Elsword forums.

Anonymous said: (Part I) I came out to my parents a few months ago. Aside from a few remarks that I shouldn't "close myself off" from romantic/sexual relationships, it went well. Then a few weeks ago, we had a discussion that was basically them trying to tell me that I shouldn't say that I was Asexual, that sexual attraction would come after a strong emotional bond with someone who could excite me intellectually. They used the fact that I don't have many friends as a reason why I shouldn't identify as Asexual.
Part II) They also tried using one of my (platonic) online crushes to debunk my Asexuality. It was obvious that they hadn’t done any research in the time that they also weren’t asking me anything about my orientation. It was a train wreck and I am still upset. I sent them an email gently giving them the real information while tactfully leaving out the fact that they’d almost gotten bing on an Aromantic bingo card (only one spot left!)
Part III) My mom responded to the email by talking to me about how she didn’t feel sexual/ romantic attraction until she felt an emotional bond with someone (her first boyfriend and dad) and telling me the same things that she had said in the last discussion. I am done talking about this to them. Sorry for the long message, I just wanted to talk about/vent to someone.
I’m sorry that’s happening to you, acenon. <3 I’m going to give advice anyway, okay?
I’d very nicely point out to your mother that she literally just described being demisexual/demiromantic, which is part of the asexual/aromantic spectrum. I’d say that it’s a bit rich that she’s telling you not to identify as part of that spectrum when she herself described feelings on the spectrum.
You don’t have to talk to them again, but if they bring it up or say something dismissive, I’d give them a one liner like “I am asexual, and I’m not willing to talk about it again until you are willing to listen and learn.”
It is really just a hard concept for someone who is sexually active to understand. I wouldn’t blame your parents for not being understanding of your situation. It really is just a hard concept to grasp because it is such an uncommon occurrence. Who knows, maybe you will fall in love with someone one day and you will share a sexual relationship with them that is pleasing. I also identify as asexual, but at the same time I am open to the possibilities of what could happen in my life. I can’t see myself ever being in a close and sexual relationship with another person but I do believe that if the right person came along it could be a possibility. Keep your head up! My parents don’t get it either but I still love them for accepting me as me.
