Do I need to come out as asexual?

Unchained asks:

So, I am not sure how to exactly address this.

I first learned asexuality existed around a year ago. I saw a post circulating Tumblr and decided to research it simply because it was something I had never heard about and wanted to be informed.

Searching I came across AVEN and several blogs with people telling about their own experiences with asexuality and debunking myths. After some time of reading about it and kind of forgot about the matter, kept the information I had researched as something to remember when talking to people.

Several months later, the magazine that comes with the Sunday newspaper featured an article about asexuality. I read it mainly because I always read that section of the magazine (it normally addresses subjects related to psychology and sociology which are topics I enjoy reading about). Like before, I didn't think much beyond that it was good asexuality was finally seeming to get some media to talk about it.

I Feel Bad for Being Straight

Zoranoran246 asks:

I have a weird identity problem that nobody I know seems to share. I have lots of LGBTQ friends, and it seems like lately it's a bad thing to be straight. I identify as mostly hetero, at least for now, but my friend group almost looks down on straight relationships, the way that many bigoted communities view LGBTQ people. I sometimes feel embarrassed about my orientation around my closest friends! I have no idea what to do. I don't think that the fact that I'm straight detracts from how weird and wrong all this is. Perhaps I require a different perspective? Please help!
