    I am not asexual myself, by any means, but I have heard many voices in the Asexual community talk about their erasure in the LGBTQIAP+ community. I have also heard some in the community claim asexuals don't belong in the community because one could be a straight, white, cis man and be asexual and never deal with legal discrimination and such. But idk I disagree with that, because they still deal with social rejection and issues.
    And it is perplexing that there is a straight section here, but not an asexual one.

    The admin is the one that makes new small sub forums on here I believe..but he doesn't stick around here at all(nor does he reply to emails about this site)..so until he replies to his emails about requests,no new things can really be added here

    You are very right. I do my best to always consider asexual people in my approach to life and all. I try not to assume that everyone is into sex now.

    I completely agree. Ace's are just as much a part of the community as everybody else, and should have places where they can feel accepted.

    I have kind of dealt alone with my sexuality until now since I have read many forums like this don't actually have that many topics for aces, which is weird. However, it's nice to see that there are people part of this community who accept our sexuality. I think everyone should stick together without all the bullying. Damn, most of us know how it feels to be outcasted anyway.
    So yeah, just wanted to say I'm glad for all the nice comments, and an own section for aces would be appreciated. :)

    Thespis, are you the reason new forums added to this site? Thank you for the effort and time, whoever actually made this happen. The look of the site is much better now. ヽ(●・∀・●)人(○・∀・○)ノ

    That's very sweet of you to say, zen, but I can't take the credit. Adding these new sections has been on the staff "to do" list since before I even joined the forum. Our site admin Barefoot couldn't make any changes until the site owner had made a safety backup of the whole site. That happened yesterday, so... voila! :)
