Tropes People Are Tired Of Seeing In LGBTQ+ Stories


“I’m so sick of there being zero asexual representation in the media. The very few characters that are ace are seen as frigid or loveless.”

—Riley MacDonald

“No representation for asexual or demisexual people, or when it does exist, it’s something that needs to be ‘cured,’ like in that awful episode of House, M.D., or it’s used to infantilize the characters, often with their virginity being a sign that they’re not a ‘real’ man or woman yet, and their character’s growth is tied to them finally having sex. Which also ignores the fact that while some ace and demi people are virgins, not all of us are.”
