Yes, I Can be Asexual and a Slut
Today - April 6th 2021- is the first celebration of International Asexuality Day. This is a fact I just learned this morning as I’ve been taking a bit of break from the internet. So, in my usual fashion, I’m throwing together some thoughts last minute. Why? Because there’s a lot of confusion when it comes to asexuality. There are a lot of assumptions made. I feel we need to tell diverse stories in order to remind people that asexuality is not a monolith. Just like with any other sexuality, no two asexual people are exactly alike. They share one point of commonality - lack of sexual attraction - but beyond that anything is possible.

Accepting Indulgence as Necessity
I don’t like spending money. As a freelancer, when I have money I always feel the need to save it for those days when jobs were scarce. I wear my clothes until they’re falling off my body. My books are from the library. Eating out is a rarity for me. These hallmarks of frugality may seem reasonable but sometimes I go one step farther.
