Here’s how to date multiple people the right way:

“Tell any and all other partners what you’re up to! ENM relationships are fine, as is dating around on your own, but only if everyone knows. If you’re hiding something, ask yourself why. […]

It might seem awkward to have to admit to potential dates that you don’t actually want anything monogamous to bloom from your meetup, but it’s less awkward than having to tell them they’re actually just one relationship out of many when they hit you with a third-date ‘So, what are we?’

If you’re worried someone on your roster will object to there being a roster, too damn bad. They have the right to be opposed and not be deceived.”

Doctors are still trying to erroneously “cure” asexuality:

“While no one can expect their healthcare providers to be aware of every issue, doctors and other medical professionals should be open to learning—and to admitting they’re not the ultimate authority on their patients’ needs. It’s up to the medical establishment to become more inclusive and to learn about the sociopolitical issues that could be affecting their patients’ mental and/or physical health. Most importantly, the medical community must learn and constantly understand that asexuality is a real identity. Asexuality isn’t an internet sexuality or a medical dysfunction. Asexual people aren’t broken—and doctors shouldn’t treat us as if we are.”
