Define Asexuality.

Yes, I am dragging this old chestnut out of the closet.

I want a definition for the new site. I really want to come up with a definition that is as inclusive as possible, and I want to acknowledge that many people have different definitions. 

It has to include nonlibidonists, and those that find people attractive etc, but I really think it needs to elude those who want, and do have lots of sex. 

Any ideas?

    Someone who doesn't experience sexual arousal upon first contact.

    Asexual = someone who doesn’t experience sexual attraction wich doesn’t neccesarily mean they don’t have sex, they can have sex but they just don’t desire it. 

    There are asexuals with a libido so they should be included.

     (Ignore me if i misread the whole thing it’s too early for my taste and coffee isn’t working yet)

    Can we test that theory?

    That's a no.  Just my thought on this post.

    Go through the history of the various definitions for Asexuality. The earliest reference I found in the 70s was a first edition of a dictionary from 1830 in the British Library. The grammer was arcane, but is different from todays more psychology based version.
    Above all, you must define "SEXUAL ATTRACTION". 
    I tried to get Pramana to define it. Nada. The people who use it make the assumption that you know what it is. I have said that would be like describing colour to a blind person. 
    Cue the real foundation definition debate.

    That makes me think.. Why are the fucking gender studies tards, from the university of "fuck" not all pissy and all "in ya face" trying to ban Bisexuals?

    Is it because they "trust" other members of the LGBT movement? Or do they realise that "REEEEing" at bisexual people wouldn't do their image much good?

    Sorry to rain on your parade, but bisexuals are constantly bullied into being pansexuals, bi is not inclusive enough and invalidates others not subscibing to the binary belief.
    Also bi are also bullied into either straight or gay camps, take your pick.
    I wonder if the acronym will change to LGPT+

    I'm not sure why people are against bisexuals in the lgbt movement, but I have a blatant theory that there's something to do with distrust with sexual relationship or just plain incompatibility. I heard from gay men, and lesbian women that they don't trust bisexuals because they'll bat for the other team, and they'll feel rejected, and more on the point, that may have to do something with it. I know, it's a blatant theory, but I guess acephobia within the lgbt community can also be explained this way.

    Yeah, I don't really get the bias against bisexuals either.  


    As for a definition for asexuality, I think that the simplest and most inclusive definition we could get is "a lack of sexual attraction and/or a lack of intrinsic desire for partnered sex".  Most people on AVEN use either the sexual attraction definition or the intrinsic desire for partnered sex definition, so I just combined the two into one in order to avoid a heated definition debate every time.

    I could go for that definition, defo.
