I just… wanna remind people that asexuality was classed as a mental disorder by the DSM all the way up until 2013…. Because I feel like people don’t know this or like to ignore it because it doesn’t fit into their “asexual people don’t face discrimination” rhetoric.
Asexuality was only removed from the DSM in 2013. Please, know this and remember it.
Read this here thing if you want to know more about this. But, important to note: the diagnosis is still “hypoactive sexual desire disorder” unless you self-identify as asexual. Meaning you have to KNOW you’re asexual if you don’t want to get treated for a mental disorder.
