Wanting connection and having standards before you put out makes you asexual now? That is the dumbest thing I have ever heard.

Whats scary is lots of people in the leftie "sex positive" crowd push the notion that not wanting to fuck every human you meet (and being grossed out by kinks) makes you asexual. To them, there's no middle ground between totally asexual and a kinky nymphomaniac

I think demisexual IS the middle ground.

Yup, very depressing to see how the goalposts have been moved to include literal sexual abuse as "normal" sexuality, making everyone who doesn't enjoy it "abnormal".
