Here, lemme fix that for you.

-Asexual
-Low sex drive
-Low sex drive (or, in the romantic case, “normal,” since romance can only exist with someone you’ve bonded with)
-Heterosexual
-Homosexual
-Three more sexualities that are all essentially the same (yeah, I understand the differences but since not identifying as male or female is both very rare and mental (thus limiting the attraction to them to the romantic spectrum) they’re all the same in practice)

Seriously, I’m bi (or pan, or poly, or bazoowop, whatever you want to call it) myself, but I’m drawing the line at SBJs making up their own sexualities out of het guilt. There are four sexualities (het, homo, a, and bi/pan/poly) and four gender identities at most (male, female, agender, and some sort of male/female mixture (help me out here hg, is there some sort of term for that???)). People, stop making up nonexistent sexualities and gender identities so you can claim you’re minorities you aren’t. You’re making the rest of us look bad.

Almost everyone that I’ve encountered has agreed that demisexuals are NOT oppressed in our society. Their sexuality is really easy to pass as just being romantic or hard-to-get.

The people making up genders and stuff are people who misunderstand privilege. Privilege isn’t a bad thing, it’s just like a dog that follows you around all the time. If you don’t keep an eye on it it will shit all over the place, but as long as you have a grip on it you’re fine.

I have encountered two otherkin so far on Tumblr, and neither of them were furries or weeaboos. One was a TF2 addict, the other was an artist. Both of them consider otherkin to be a really strong spiritual link to whatever animal and not really a gender.

Fae pronouns on the other hand are complete bullshit. You can’t identify as a mythical creature. You wanna be a frog, fine, there’s a pretty solid definition of frog and there’s no confusion over what abilities frogs have. Fairies and angels on the other hand…

Sexual attraction is more of a slider than 4 set ones.
Gender can be Male, Female. Hermaphrodite, and agender.
however recent studies have shown even gender is more like sexual attraction, there are many in between each “preset” however giving them names is really stupid, just say what you like and what you are, don’t come up with new names for every little quirk because then it gets confusing!

Your list of genders is really sex (biologically). Gender is how you identify, which is MUCH more complicated. Basically, if someone seriously asks you to call you “him” instead of “her”, or “her” instead of “him”, you should. They shouldn’t expect you to call them some weird third pronoun unless they request “it/they”. Asking someone to use words they use anyway to talk about you is fine, asking for them to use a new one isn’t. (Note, if it’s not amply clear, I have NO PROBLEM with trans* people, but rather the creation of a ridiculously large array of terms to talk about them, most of which aren’t understood by normal people. Just say what your gender is (Not sex, if they are different) and I will refer to you as such. There is no need for such complications.)
