My friends don`t belive me...

When a "hot" girl walks by I just go meh....
When they flick on porn I usually fall asleep.


They think I`m gay which I`m not I just don`t feel poo for either of the genders..

I know a lot of women who are completely uninterested in sex.

Or maybe they`re just completely uninterested in sex with me.

Well, according to CNN.com QuickVote, 6% are asexual (along with 78% heterosexual, 9% homosexual, and 7% bisexual), but I think I trust the study mentioned in the article a little more.

Hey, cool. I got mentioned.

I think 1 in 100 is sort of a low number, almost.

1% is about 60,000,000, but remember this is only counting 18+, so it`s not out of 6 billion

Hmm Im like the most un-asexual person I would have sex all the time if I didn`t have to participate in society...college and a job is over-rated ;-)

1% of the entire population would be relatively f*cking huge.

Kamichi, this isn`t an interpretation. It`s a report of a real survey.

"1%, I thought it would be higher actually O_o"

Yeah! me too! I know so many asexuals considering how few "friends" I have. I think I know at least 8, though some of them are only aquaintances, I see them on a regular basis. :-D Then again, I usually hang out with the [blank]-sexual people.

Hmmm....I never knew asexuals were being discriminated upon. Im pretty sure I never read in the bible in Leviticus "Thou shalt not not layeth down with any humankind". Well, the next time I see an Asexual, I will make sure to make fun of them "Hey whats up? oops im sorry, you have no justification for feeling that!...oooh snap!"...Damn thats gonna be harder than I thought. :-P

Mm. I admit I didn`t bother to read the whole thing. I know lots of asexual people (ranging from teenagers to adults). I don`t want to read a stuck up reporter`s interpretation of it. ;-)

However, it`s an interesting percentage. Thanks for the tidbit of information. :-D
