Q&A: “can i use asexual as an umbrella term?”

anonymous said:

can i use asexual as an umbrella term? i identify with more than one (a)sexualites (cupio/demi/grey) so i think it’s a lot easier to just say im asexual

sure, go with whatever feels comfortable and right for you, be it asexual, ace, ace spectrum, etc.

some will disagree with me on this, but people use asexual as an umbrella word to mean various things all the time. i’m not an authority on the word asexual and i am not about to police others’ usage of the word.
