They're part of the LGBT+ community because they're literally asexual. It's not their attraction to fictional characters that makes them LGBT+, it's their lack of attraction to real people. Also, this is a Gender wiki, so this is irrelevant content.
I personally don't think they are a part of the LGBT+ community just because that kind of reminds me of the super straight thing? Like people sometimes feel attraction to fictional characters, and that's just seen as a completely normal thing, not a whole new different sexuality. Also what double-bi said: Also, this is a Gender wiki, so this is irrelevant content.
@RainbowMango88 But like i said, they're not LGBT+ because they're attracted to fictional characters, they're LGBT+ because they aren't attracted to real people.
@Double-bi true... It's kind of hard for me to comment on the subject because I nor anyone I personally know identify as animatesexual, and I haven't really done any research on it because like you said, this is a gender wiki
@Miiohau Just delete the irrelevant post pls
@Double-bi Ok- I understand what your saying- but what if they are attracted to real people too? I feel like things like this aren't valid but ok, but animatesexuals aren't specifically not attracted to them, and say asexual not animatesexual anyway. The Valid way of saying it would be Asexual not animatesexual so sorry, but ya- Also like everyone else said this is gender wiki
@DemiBoyCosplayer If they are attracted to real people too, they're not animatesexual.
Animatesexual is just a specific term asexual people use to describe their attraction, because the label of "no sexual attraction" doesn't wholly describe them.
@Truthandreality ???Why are you suddenly the one who calls the shots on who is lgbt and who isn't when you aren't even lgbt???????
@Truthandreality the lgbtqiap+ community isn't based on sex??? half of the community is asexual/aromantic or transgender, neither of which means sex? what are you talking about? also I don't really understand what you mean by "You research a lot of fictional things that aren't real", I literally said that I haven't done my research on animatesexual people.. I am here because the original poster wanted an opinion, so I gave my opinion.
@RainbowMango88 Don't bother, they are insanely transphobic.
What do you think?
