i find it baffling how questions of identity always seem to be sexualized. like, google scholar “species dysphoria” and all the articles are about bestiality. BIID used to be only understood as apotemnophilia (arousal of oneself as an amputee). then, of course, bullshit about “autogynephilia”.
maybe it’s just me being asexual, but i Do Not Understand
That’s not just about you being asexual it’s about the fact that sexual or not, identity isn’t all about sex but the saucier articles about these identities are the “look at this weird sex thing” ones.
