And tangnetially related: I’m not saying to tell sex repulsed people that they aren’t sex repulsed or maybe there’s some act that they do like. Like, don’t do that. In a sex-normative society such as ours, sex repulsion is met with a great deal of resistance and invalidation. If someone is sex repulsed, they’re sex repulsed. End of conversation.
But that is not to say that if you are sex repulsed, you will always be [or conversely, that if you’re not sex repulsed, you never will be]. But it’s a personal thing. It’s for the person to determine how they feel, and not for anyone else to tell them how to label and/or identify themselves.
Like, here’s my problem with terms like sex repulsed, averse, indifferent, favorable - they’re blanket statements. Someone is said to be sex repulsed/averse/indifferent/favorable, as though they are repulsed/averse/etc to all sex acts. Are there people like that? Definitely so. But such classification definitely doesn’t fit every asexual person.
Someone who is asexual and not 100% sex repulsed might still be repulsed by some acts, but averse to others. Does that make them sex repulsed or sex averse? Maybe most sexual things bore them except one particular act. Are they sex indifferent or sex favorable? And so on. It’s a useful system of personal identification, but you cannot force those labels onto others because there are too many grey areas.
