'the moment I realised I was asexual' is an article published by the telegraph several months ago. It makes for an interesting read, raising many good points, and personally I think it is another big step to see asexuality get another look in with a broadsheet such as this :)

That headline is terrible but the article was much better than I thought it would be!

I appreciated how the article acknowledged that asexual people above the age of 25 exist. I'm about to hit thirty, and I know there have to be others older than I am.

I really appreciated the same thing. I'm in my thirties, and one of my sisters, who is demi, is in her forties. So it is very nice to see media representation of older asexuals. :)

That is a rather nice article. Some of the comments, though... =_=

The one guy going on about hormones and lack of testosterone made me want to join just so I could not only point out (as others had) that asexuality isn't about hormonal imbalance, but my own personal experience. While I've never been tested because I'm unable to afford to pay for it out of pocket, I show quite a few of the signs of PCOS, including the effects of too much testosterone. Still asexual.
