Acephobia and Asexophobia are the Asexual equivalents of Homophobia. Although neither of these words have gained any official recognition outside of the Asexual community, the words are easy enough to dissect. The terms refer to fear of Asexuals and Asexuality. Examples of this can be found, although the term itself is somewhat misleading. Even people who use the term homophobia are often refer to acts motivated by hatred.
What we face is ignorance but what we don't face is the immense hatred felt by members of LBBT community. Where HOMOPHOBIA really leads to violence from homophobes.
Honestly, I'm sometimes embarrassed by the behavior and ideas of the asexual community.
WE SHOULD TAKE CARE OF OUR PROBLEMS. OUR PROBLEMS OF ERASURE AND MISUNDERSTANDIN G. Not busy trying to play super major victims of systemic abuse. We're not.
We don't face hatred at a larger scale because, to be honest, we almost don't exist. There aren't many people who know of it to be able tohate us.
The abuse of one minority shouldn't invalidate that of another simply because "they have it worse".
Janna also needs to remember this section is simply to explain terms and definitions used among asexuals.
