The article about asexual women was easy to read. Like most articles about asexuality, it was only 11 pages. These were the general points made:
- Asexual women (and autoerotic women) exist.
- There's nothing wrong with them.
- Be yourself.
"I have a love in my life, and it makes me more powerful than you can imagine."
Well, I have a 30-year-old article in my life, and it has finally given me ancestors of experience. Knowing that people like me were previously identified, albeit briefly, feels like I've gotten a message of encouragement. And that gives me strength.
Next, I'm reading the articles from gay and lesbian perspectives...in 1977, the gay community was in a similar position to the asexual community today. Reading about a lesbian who thought she was "the only woman in the world who loved women" would be almost unheard of today. However, this is a feeling that many contemporary asexuals go through daily. I'm going to leave it at that for now. But stay tuned for intriguing quotes from The Sexually Opressed, coming at you this weekend.
