    My parents are pastors.

    .so as you can imagine they are hardcore Christians. When I came out they freaked out. They told me I couldn't bring any "lesbian ****" into their house. I felt a huge separation from them. In fact we didn't see each other for months at a time. They said a lot of really hurtful...

    ...I have told a few friends, but not family. I really need to talk to others who identify themselves as asexual, or want to know more about it. Would love to hear from anyone.
