Asexuality is a sexual orientation defined by a lack of sexual attraction to people of any sex (though there are many diverse ways to be asexual). Recently, there has been some online discussion about whether asexual people belong in the LGBTQ+ acronym and community.
Yes, asexual people be included in LGBTQ+
Asexual people face discrimination and alienation
Asexual people should be able to find community in a world which is hostile towards them.
No, asexual people should not be included in LGBTQ+
Asexual people are not systematically oppressed
Unlike homosexuality, it has never been illegal to be asexual or to abstain from sex. Other sexualities have had to fight for the right to their identities and relationships, but asexual people have not.
