good reasons to headcanon a character as asexual:

  • they may not pick up on sexual or flirtatious cues
  • they don’t explicitly express strong sexual attraction to others
  • because you can
  • just
  • because you can

bad reasons to headcanon a character as asexual:

  • they’re “innocent”/“childlike”
  • they’re non-human
  • they lack genitals
  • they’re cold and emotionless

bad reasons to deny a character possibly being asexual:

  • they’ve dated someone
  • they’ve had sex at least once
  • seriously how hard is it to grasp that asexuality is a lack of sexual attraction, not a lack of sex drive or romantic attraction, is it really too fucking complicated to grasp this very simple definition
  • they’re “too emotional”
  • you personally find them too hot to want them to be asexual
