He’s really like what you’d think he’d be like. He’s amazing.

Art trade! I have been a long-time fan of speep so getting to work with her on a project was the best. This is my lineart with her coloring, and soon she’ll be posting her lineart that I colored. She made this look way cooler than my messy original lines. I seriously had a blast getting to do this and hope I get to do more in the future! Yeah yeah art trade yeah! /o/

I’m sorry for the bother in a tumultuous time, but is there any chance you could share your hormone science-type rebuttals? I’ve never been quite sure what to say when people react by pulling that one out.
Of course! I would be more than happy to.
The DSM lists two disorders that are characterized by a lack of, disdain for, and avoidance of sexual contact. The first is called Sexual Aversion Disorder (SAD), which is characterized by a phobic aversion of sex.
The second is called Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder (HSDD), and is characterized by a lack or absence of sexual fantasies and desire for sexual activity. In order to be classified as a disorder, this lack must cause significant distress or relational difficulties and not be better explained by another condition (medical or mental) or by medication.
Hormonal changes that affect a person’s interest in sex (specifically, a woman’s) occur during menopause, pregnancy, or breast-feeding, or when a woman’s estrogen or progesterone levels are abnormally low for any reason. Usually, this reduced interest is tied to the fact that sex simply doesn’t feel as good, due to physiological changes in the woman’s body. I can’t speak quite as well for men’s hormones, but I’m sure there is research out there!
When you start reading up on literature about decreased sexual desire or reduced libidos, the most common cause is related to relationship problems, NOT medical problems. Medical and/or hormonal problems are usually way down the list, underneath stress, anxiety, depression, drugs, and age.
In addition (and this is a bit sillier, but I used it to underscore how silly blaming asexuality on hormones is), eating chocolate releases the same chemicals your brain creates when you feel like you’re falling in love (endorphins). However, it doesn’t mean I’m falling in love with said chocolate.
So how will boosting the amount of certain hormones in my system create a sex drive within me, when eating chocolate doesn’t make me fall in love but produces the same biological response?
I hope that helps!
