Lol, no
erm...go back to science class

"Having no evident sex or sex organs; sexless.
Relating to, produced by, or involving reproduction that occurs without the union of male and female gametes, as in binary fission or budding."

Plants are asexual and stop abusing something that is there for people who do actually require anonymity for certain things unless you're going somewhere with this.

Surely a blind person would have to be asexual because they don't know who they are attracted to?

How many of you know what it is? And if so, what do you know about it?

Yes many organisms can reproduce asexually (essentially they produce genetically identical offspring). However, asexuality in the context of this thread has a different meaning, and refers to people that are not interested in having sexual relationships.

done it in psychology... it also seems to be how fashion for women s going...
(in the way that the models get thinner and have less breast and take on a boyish appearance in an asexual way...)
I think you're talking about androgyny, which is either the mixing of male and female characteristics (as in fashion), or something which is neither male or female.

some people who are born both get forced as youngster to have surgary to make them male or female and it usualy makes the rest of their life hard cause they never feel what they are...so and thats it
Hang on, are you talking about hermaphrodites? Those born with both male and female gonads?

Asexual means someone or something lacks sexual attaraction or desire. Hypothetical example: Issac Newton was asexual. However, asexuality is not to be confused with celibacy or chastity - its just no desire for sex.

No. Blind people experience sexual desire too. Obviously their experience of attraction isn't based on sight.
