Is Asexuality A Real Sexual Orientation?
I just want to hear what you think about this. In my opinion, asexuality is an orientation, but you could have reason against it. (Beware: I probably will edit this like mad. :p) -Asexuality is when a person has little or no sexual attraction to anyone.

Asexuality is as valid as bisexuality.

The misconception that most people have is that heterosexual and homosexual attraction are a sum total, that if a person has both then that person can't be as attracted to one gender as a straight or gay person. That's a load of codswallop.

Heterosexual and homosexual attraction are completely separate. A straight or gay person has a lot of one attraction and little or none of the other. A bisexual person has some or a lot of both attractions, though not always in equal amounts. And an asexual person has little or none of both attractions.

I was considering posting on the other side because some scientist have called it a lack of sexual orientation but the mainstream opinion is that it's a lack of sexual attraction towards either gender. Asexuals lack the desire to have sex with anyone although some asexuals do. It isn't a behavioural thing, it's an ingrained sexual orientation like heterosexuality, bisexuality or homosexuality. It's not a very well researched area in regard to the spectrum of sexuality.

I believe so. I also think we become more asexual as we get older. Very common among the elderly.

 That's not becoming asexual that's just getting tired. Asexual, from my understanding, are born with no sex drive.

I believe it is real. I can't understand it myself. I never really gave much thought until Occultdude showed up on this site. I have been researching it and I have like a million questions.

Asexuality -
Eunuchs
Anyone attracted to inanimate objects like walls or snow,
People who have neuro problems
I'm sure there are more examples.

 Eunuchs can feel sexual attraction, so they're not necessarily asexual.
Anyone attracted to inanimate objects is still sexually attracted to them, so, again, not asexual.
Most asexuals would be very, very offended about the second-to-last one.
