Happy pride month tumblr! This blog 100% supports asexual Nagisa and will take any oppurtunity to discuss it. So here are some asexual Nagisa headcanons! (Asexuality is the lack of sexual attraction to people. He still very much can fall in love!)
Nagisa definitely does not know what asexuality is, at least at first.
He just kind of goes about his life with not much attention for love anyways. It’s not his priority and as a result he also doesn’t think about sex much.
Literally, he is so focused on his goals he doesn’t think about these things at all.
Eventually he’s probably start noticing how others around him behave and talk about sex. He realises he doesn’t feel much about it but, like most asexuals, figures he needs to find the right person.
It’s actually Ritsu who tells him about it! He had a bit of a moment where he was contemplating why he didn’t feel those feelings everyone else felt, and Ritsu went through her database with Nagisa’s “symptoms” because she wanted to help her friend. She probably doesn’t even realize the revelations she just gave Nagisa.
Nagisa, being Nagisa, does a crazy amount of research on the topic.
When he actually starts dating he gets a little nervous. He doesn’t know if this is something you come out with or if he should just avoid any conversation leading to sex.
He goes a little insane but knows some great people in his life tell him to be himself (you can figure out who yourself). He doesn’t keep it a secret much anymore but tells people when the information is relevant.
He definitely still doesn’t want to attract attention with it. Simply isn’t a spotlight person.
He definitely isn’t too bothered about being asexual. All his friends are supportive and if he ever had any issues regarding the topic they’d all stand up for him.

if you think asexual/aromantic people aren’t oppressed then remember that a) they are but b) you can’t use that to define them out of the lgbtq+ community bc it doesnt just exist for people who are oppressed??? its a safe space for people whose attractions/experiences with are outside the socially agreed “norm”, when their attractions are consensual
So… I’m playing a little game. I have had rainbow hair for over a month and now dyed it yellow pink and blue. My nails are Pink, Yellow, and Blue, in that order. I wore my Ace dragon shirt to work the other day, and then rainbow leggings the next day. So uh… how long till my family figures it out, or will someone tell me they like my style first?
1988 – Margaret Thatcher introduces Section 28 of the Local Government Act 1988
The Act stated that councils should not “promote the teaching in any maintained school of the acceptability of homosexuality as a pretended family relationship”, meaning teachers couldn’t speak about same-sex relationships with their students. This included students coming out to their teachers or tackling homophobic bullying.
This prompted Sir Ian McKellen to come out as gay on BBC Radio. He formed Stonewall with Michael Cashman CBE, Lisa Power MBE and others to lobby against Section 28 and other barriers to equality
It was accidental. You formed a habit of turning away anytime a significant other tried to kiss you. It was just a personal preference you linked to your sexual orientation, so you didn’t really think much of it. Your previous partners understood this, but you had yet to explain this to Thor. You knew you should have told him when you two started to date, but it never seemed to matter around him. Now that he tried to kiss you, however, you realized how important it was for him to know. This was the time, you supposed.
Thor looked at you slightly confused with a hint of hurt. “Did I do something wrong, Y/N?” You felt a small pang of hurt at the mere thought of you hurting his feelings with your involuntary actions. “No, you didn’t. I’m sorry, I just… well..it’s a little hard to explain,” you stammered quickly, hoping he didn’t take it too personally. He looked at you expectantly as you tried to find the words to explain yourself. You shifted your weight nervously, feeling all the pressure on your shoulders suddenly. Upon noticing your nervousness, Thor gently put his hands on your shoulders, moving a little closer to you. “It’s alright. You can tell me,” he eased, looking into your eyes to show you that he meant it. You took in a deep breath, deciding it was best to just spit it out. “It’s not you,” you started, looking away momentarily, “It’s just that I’m not a big fan of kissing because I’m Asexual.”
Thor looked at you confused for a moment, waiting for you to explain what that meant. You had to explain what that meant. “Being asexual,” you breathed, “means that I still feel romantic feelings for someone, but I’m not interested in anything sexual. It varies from person to person depending on what they consider sexual. In my case, I feel like kissing on the lips, especially making out, is not something I’m interested in.” He nodded slowly, processing the information. “It has nothing to do with you, it’s just a part of who I am,” you concluded, looking down sheepishly.
“This is a part of you that you haven’t told me about,” he muttered softly. You kept your eyes fixed on the floor, “It just never seemed to matter. With you, I feel like I can be myself without having to constantly bring up my orientation.” Thor shook his head lightly, “It’s a part of you. I love all of you, no matter what. I’m willing to adapt to the things that make you comfortable and uncomfortable.” You sighed softly, still not wanting to face him entirely.
“Kissing on the lips is a no. How would you feel about substituting it for cheek kisses?” he asked, catching your attention. You looked at him in awe, a small smile gracing your features. “That would be perfect,” you whispered lovingly.
I just realized every time I write a story or fanfic every character in my head is asexual because I cannot fathom why someone would want to have/enjoy sex so even if the character I’m writing about isn’t ace when I write their romance it is always ace romance. It might just be because whenever I think about touching someone sexually I feel sick but whatever I guess 🤷
