    I feel as if I'm breaking some sort of law by saying this..... well, ok. I understand that it is hard work maintaining a public forum, but there is something I really wish they would add an Asexual section here. Just my opinion.

    Genderfluid can be included in transgender forum. Trans is a spectrum that includes fluid, agender, etc. If there was a separate genderfluid forum, people could ask for agender, demigender, or any of the thousands of gender people identify with.
    Asexuality, however, is not included in any sexuality we have here. I think it's weird that we don't have it. Not enough aces to keep it running, I guess.

    Really. ?? I thought trans was being a pretty much binary gender, opposite to your birth sex. Can't be truly binary though, because trans is not cis. Don't know who gets to decide these things, but to me, trans involves moving from one state to another, across the gender continuum (trans being a Latin prefix, translating to "across") , not moving around on it, or moving off it completely. IDK, like I said, I don't know who gets to decide, but the terms transgender, and transsexual have been around for decades, and have pretty much always meant changing or transitioning across (the gender continuum) from one gender or sex to another. Again, don't see how moving around on, or moving off the continuum is a change of state, or is across anything. I guess, in a way, being off the spectrum is being in a different state, but if it's off the continuum, I'm not sure it qualifies as a change or transition (across the continuum) from one sex or gender to another. Maybe I don't really understand gender fluid or agender (I don't), or maybe I'm just "old school" (I am). Y'all are welcome to straighten me out on this.

    Even though we do now have a real site admin, I'm not sure we can set up new forums. I'll ask.

    Hugs,
    Audry Leigh

    Yus, I back this.

    I'm not asexual myself but I've noticed that they're a pretty marginalised group, even within the wider LGBT+ community which is disturbing.

    Representation for asexuals. <3

    AudryLeigh Hehe thanks.

    It's me and not me sadly. It's my face. My eyes, my nose, my cheeks, part of my forehead, my mouth and chin (not visible, cropped the pic to hide my face a little) but not my hair. I faceswapped my face with another pic to try and create how I wanna look. I have gender dysphoria, I think I might either be androgynous or want to be a trans woman. It's something I need a lil help with. The make-up was added in as well with another app.

    It's a little embarrassing that I have to resort to stuff like that but hope one day that I can actually come close to looking like that without apps. I want to change my body too.

    Sure it'd be good to see one, asexuality doesn't fit into any of the other categories currently here.

    I'm not asexual, but considering that there are people who feel uncomfortable even to read something sexual in asexual group, I think it would be a good addition to this site.

    Dang hon, with those eyes, I can't speak for anyone else, but they're about all I'd ever see. Just those eyes alone make you a stunner, in my book.
    I'm tied up right at the moment, but I can help you with all that stuff (as I tell so many people: I'm here to help - it's what I do.) I am M2F myself, and know all too much about gender dysphoria. One of my favorite things is helping wannabe M2F people. I work with all kinds of people, though -- all kinds. I'm also kind of the go-to person for suicide prevention and intervention. We get way more of that than anyone (except me) even knows -- it all happens in private, so nobody ever sees it (except me).

    Anyway, if you want to start talking about things, just PM me and tell me more about yourself. I always respond, and I really am here to help -- it's what I do.

    Hugs,
    Audry Leigh
