recently on a different site, i witnessed a huge fight/debate. it started when somebody said that "demisexuality and asexuality aren't real and the people who claim them just have idiotic fears of intimacy", as i directly quote. obviously some individuals took offense at that, and some others started to come to the OP's defense, and it basically turned into a giant 15-way brawl that deteriorated into a petty name-calling and snarking contest.
it sparked my interest, though. and i'm using it as a discussion-starter now: do you agree with what the original thread-starter said--that asexuality and demisexuality aren't real? or do you disagree?
