hey my name is jeffrey, 16, deaf, and i am asexual. it is very rare, and in america, there are only 1% asexuals. Anyway, i knew that i was different when i was little. I just knew. When i became freshman in highschool, i started to have those feelings about men. I tried to resist it by not thinking about it. But i couldnt... Those thoughts kept on coming back to me. My family is strongly against homosexuals. They are christians. so i went through struggle between homosexuality and religion. I eventually finally found my true identity. It takes time and a lot of patience to find your true identity.
if you are going through struggle, keep going through it. Eventually, you would break the struggle. My teacher once said, "struggle is good." I always found that quote stupid, but i eventually understood what she meant. it takes time.
if the bullies are in the way, move around them. Eventually, they will realize that youre amazing person no matter who you are.
i love you all.
