You know, it’s the 21st century…

I just came out to my very sexual cousin, who is also a female and who is about my age, 29.

She LAUGHED at me when I told her I was a virgin. “It’s the 21st century and you are a virgin?”

I swear I wanted to punch her soo hard… but I just explained her what asexuality was about. She’s a psychiatrist and at first she related it to some kind ot fear of sex. But I managed to explain her all the different flavors of asexuality, how some of us are repulsed, some curious, and some even sexually active.

At the end she was kind of interested.

But I have still that feeling of unease to have come out at someone who didn’t believe me and who actually asked if I was serious. That’s very, very upsetting. I guess I should become used to it.

Still it hurts, and even though she was very understanding, the whole experience left me wanting to move oceans and tides to scream the world about asexuality SOOOOO LOUD. I even twitted the whole thing…. and I am not embarrased.

Oh, well….

Just needed to get this out of my chest. This really upset me. Seriously, people can be so ignorant! You should never laugh ar someone else’s sexual orientation. After all, it’s the 21st century.
