Hello, and good evening(or depending on your timezone, good morning). May I start out by saying that Scarleteen is one of the best websites I've happened upon on the internet. Now, let me tell you my wonderful people my situation.

For about half a year now, I believe I've become asexual. And recently, I've been thinking about coming out to my family and friends. But the problem is, everyone I know seems to think I'm already a freak, considering just a year ago I became an atheist and I was born with Asperger's syndrome. I think it would worsen my reputation as seen by humankind if I come out. Yet if I don't come out, I feel as if I'm torturing myself from the inside out.

Members of Scarleteen, what do you think I should do?

Aw, thanks! [Smile]

Is there anyone at all in your circles who you think MIGHT be supportive of you if you let them know you're asexual?

I agree with Heather, god knows I woulsn't hve been able to come out with a helping, supportive hand. I think if you feel threatened by the environment around you, then it may be best too begin telling with one person until you are sure you are comfortable with the people around you.

SCREW EM! if you're a freak, embrace it, and no one will want to **** with you! they will actually respect you more for being so brave, in my opinion. and you might get a little something out of it.
