Like most communities, we run a spectrum. Some of us come out. It's timed, planned, rehearsed. Maybe it's even spontaneous, but we've been practicing it in our heads for a while. Some of us don't come out so much as we just finally explode. It's not a planned conversation so much as it's you sitting … Continue reading Out.
I've known this internally for a while, and was massively stressing out about how and where and when to say it, but it was only fairly recently that I finally burst and finally just said it - I'm asexual.
