Today we are taking a deeper dive into demi orientations (particularly demiromantic and demisexual). Demi people, feel free to reblog and add on some fun facts or things you’re tired of hearing people say!
[ID: 4 images with light orange backgrounds, black text, and the TAAAP logo in the upper right corner. The first reads “Demi fun facts. Demi people may feel disconnected from the ways that many other people pursue and experience romantic and sexual attraction. Demi people may not enjoy dating apps, as dating apps often cannot produce the bond needed for many demis to experience attraction. Even if a bond does form, it is not a guarantee that attraction will follow. Demi people’s attraction may not be based on specific traits. It may instead be about who the other person is or what they mean to the demi person.”
The second image reads “Demi fun facts. Demi people can be, and are, any and all genders. Being demi does not necessarily make someone asexual or aromantic. Demi, like most other orientations, is usually defined around attraction, not action. This means that generally, demi people are not immediately attracted to someone before they’ve formed some kind of bond - it has no bearing on their actions before or after developing that attraction. Demi orientations have nothing to do with caution, morality, or prudishness! Demi simply specifically defines the conditions under which attraction takes place.”
The third image reads “What Not to Say to Demi People. Isn’t that just having standards? That’s not real. You just want to feel special. So you’re coming out as a woman. That’s how everyone feels. You don’t count as ace/aro/queer. You don’t belong with us. Why do there have to be all these labels anyways? What to say to Demi People. Thank you for sharing - would you like to say more? I’m here to listen if you want.”
The fourth image reads “Demi Discrimination. Bigots may willfully misinterpret demi identities, particularly demisexuality, as being anti-hookups or as being picky. Demiromantic people may be seen as manipulative or leading people on. This is not true. Being demi is not about behavior or expectations - it is about attraction and when one typically experiences it. The amount, frequency, and timing of the attraction that one feels does not dictate whether or not they engage in casual sex or dating.” End ID.]

ASPEC PRIDE BOOST
Because of PrideMonth, I wanted to share the asexual and aromantic spectrum with everyone.
I know this blog is a genderblog, but I feel like there isn’t enough representation for asexual and aromantic people during PrideMonth. So, I made a list of all of the asexual and aromantic identities to let everyone know how big this part of the LGBTQ+ community actually is. You heard it, people on the asexual and aromantic spectrum are LGBTQ+.
———
Asexual: Asexuality is the lack of sexual attraction to others, or low or absent interest in or desire for sexual activity.
Tumblr media
Aromantic: An aromantic is a person who experiences little or no romantic attraction to others.
Tumblr media
Demisexual: A demisexual is a person who does not experience sexual attraction unless they form a strong emotional connection with someone.
Tumblr media
Demiromantic: A demiromantic is a type of grey-romantic who only experiences romantic attraction after developing an emotional connection beforehand.
Tumblr media
Greysexual: Someone who experiences occasional and/or mild sexual attraction.
Tumblr media
Greyromantic: Someone who experiences occasional and/or mild romantic attraction.
Tumblr media
Cupiosexual and cupioromantic: Cupiosexual is a subset of asexual. It is used to describe asexuals (people who never experience sexual attraction) who still desire a sexual relationship. Cupioromantic is a subset of aromantic.
Tumblr media
Lithsexual: Akoisexual (also called akoinesexual and lithsexual) refers to a person who experiences sexual attraction, but has their feelings fade if reciprocated.
Lithromantic: Lithromantic (also known as akoiromantic or apromantic) is a romantic orientation on the asexual spectrum. Somebody who is lithromantic can feel romantic attraction towards others and also enjoy being in romantic relationships but only in theory. They do not need the affection to be reciprocated, and as such do not usually feel compelled to seek out a relationship with someone they are interested in.
Tumblr media
Fraysexual and frayromantic: Fraysexual (and also frayromantic; also called reverse-demisexual/romantic) people feel attraction only initially upon meeting or seeing someone. These feelings weaken or disappear once a bond is formed.

I don’t hold any obligation to anyone to find my “other half.”

things that are ok
never having sex
never kissing someone
never having a crush
never wanting to go out with someone
never wanting to get married
only sometimes wanting any of those things
wanting to love people who aren’t the gender you’re expected to love
wanting to have sex with people who aren’t the gender you’re expected to have sex with
not being completely ok with who you are yet
experimenting to see what you like
figuring out everything in your head
wanting a family but not a partner
wanting neither
valuing friendship more than romance or sex

Hi there! Forgive me if I'm being rude, I've never seen those flags on your new comic. I know one of those flags is the demiromantic flag, what are the others? :o
