Asexual attacking?

As mentioned before, I am very new to Tumblr. Just a few minutes ago I read on my most frequented forum, AVEN, that open asexuals are being bashed and told they have no right to consider themselves in the Queer community.

Uhh… what?

Let me grab a common definition of queer:

Queer is an umbrella term for sexual minorities that are not heterosexual, heteronormative, or gender-binary.


Using this definition, I think that asexuals have all the right to consider themselves in the Queer community if they want to join it. If they’re denied a spot in the LGBT clubs at school or anything, it’s not because they don’t belong, it’s because the leaders of such groups are being hypocritical when it comes to accepting others.

(In case anyone’s wondering, I’m trigender aromantic asexual, and proud of it.)
