@liz @jezzy my wife is trans and just began her MTF transition last fall. Lots of people have asked me if I am gay. But that label didn’t feel right even though I now know I’m not straight, since I am very excited about my wife’s transition. Bisexual didn’t fit either since I really only been attracted to her, whether she is presenting male or female. I do enjoy sex, so asexual felt wrong. This past week I learned about demisexual which means sexual attraction based on strong connection.
@jezzy @jessimica I thought about using queer, but I feel like it's too vague for me. It seems like the labels are mostly for other people to be able to understand me better, and as far as I can tell queer means just not straight? It might grow on me though, I think I need more time with it.
Also, again so excited to find other people!
@jessimica @jezzy That's so amazing! I didn't know if there were any other liturgists that had been through the same thing, I'm really happy to find you! I just read the demisexual definition and I think that might be me too! Also, maybe this is why I never understood porn (how could I be attracted to the people, I don't even know them)?
It's definitely been a process trying to figure everything out. aw, looks like no demisexual emoji heart yet 🤷♀️ 😅
@liz @jessimica @jezzy @mike ahhhh yeah you're right. The ace flag is meant to be inclusive, but there's a specific demisexual flag as well. The LGBTQ+ flags get kinda confusing at times. Like is the genderqueer flag where the lavender represents nonbinary identities, but there's also a nonbinary flag of yellow, white, purple, and black. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
