    A 'phase' of asexuality is something I've only really observed in 12-15 year olds who use the term when the reality is puberty hasn't hit them like a bus yet so they end up changing their mind later on.
    Actually, most people experience sexual attraction by about 13. I never have and puberty is well and truly over for me.

    Asexuality isn't a phase, it's an orientation. I've known, deep down, that I'm asexual since I was about 11.

    At that age, puberty was pretty much over for me.

    i do

    you just don't accept other peoples points of view, everyone is aloud an opinion
    ? That's like saying "the sky is green - that is my opinion" when it isn't. Gender is not the same as biological sex and that is that. I accept people with differing opinions but you are not presenting a differencing opinion, you are presenting a contradiction in terms.

    You've said nothing that directly and effectively contradicts my point. I never said that asexuality was always a phase, or that my methodology is the same for every teenager. I was merely stating how it could be that somebody might have a "phase" of asexuality. I suppose the reality is a phase of somebody thinking they're asexual rather than being it, if you want to be pedantic.

    probably gonna happen

    sexuality is clearly a spectrum and i can't envisage a future where how well somebody fits archaic sex-based stereotypes is still considered a part of their identity.

    People label themselves as these hip new non-existent genders/sexualities because it's become fashionable... Further proof of just how sick modern society is. I used to say that with time they'll grow up, however I am starting to believe that these people will never stop deluding themselves. Only through strong culture change will we begin to make a difference. We're starting to see this in the US with the rise of Trump, but given the left is further rooted into European society I fear that such things wont happen over here for a long time.
    Trump is not a saviour of society lol

    He's just like any politician. Preying on your ignorance and your emotion and buttering you up with empty promises
