Anonymous: While I agree and appreciate that you are wanting to avoid just labeling strangers, these are individuals who are already confused and are actually LOOKING for confirmation. I think it would be okay to tell them,"Yeah, you sound asexual to me! But don't let that be the end of all thought." Give them that confirmation, but let them know the door isn't closed to other possibilities. Y'know? :)
Hey, friend, did you read the post I linked to in that reblog? Because one of the first things it addresses is that yeah, validation is a great thing! That doesn’t make any of the points I made in that reblog any less true. It still sets me up as something I’m not: an authority on who is and is not asexual. Not only am I not that authority, I don’t want to be! That takes me way too close to being one of those slime molds who thinks they are allowed to tell people they can’t identify as asexual because they don’t fit my criteria.
