    I've noticed that some of you identify as an "ace." What does that mean?

    I'm an ace sometimes. I think it's the medication.

    Medication could definitely lower or nearly eliminate sexual attraction.

    I identify as "ace" because my sexual attraction is near-absent or entirely absent and it always has been, even after I went through puberty. I admit the possibility of being demi (experiencing sexual attraction in a long-term relationship), but never having been in a relationship, I don't really know for sure!

    Asexual. I often shorten it up (I think "ace" sounds pretty cool, lol). That's usually how I tell people, "I'm ace". Sounds pretty epic, yeah? LOL

    Asexual, but ace is used because the actual word is too long to say. Also 'ace' has way more capacity for puns than 'asexual' does.

    On the other hand, we might also be playing host to fans of that One Piece character.

    Yes, as others said, asexual. A made up orientation, per EC policy.

    Asexual. Something that is very definitely real, for some people (not denied by EC and not a policy issue either).

    Even though everyone has already said it, why can't I? ^_^

    It means asexual, in case you didn't know from all these people haha.

    Evidence that asexuality is a made-up orientation per EC policy, please.

    I'm being very facetious. You'd have to have been around a bit to get my reference.

    Asexual definitely. It's just meant to be the slangish term like straight is for heterosexual or gay for homosexual.
