This is some of my favourite graffiti in the world.  It’s by the traintracks, at the corner of Commerce and Statler, in Staunton, VA.  It makes me really happy every time I see it.

i’m gonna need everyone to stop saying disabled people are stereotyped as asexual because:

  1. using asexual as a synonym for unattractive or impotent is allosexist.
  2. it assumes all disabled people are subject to the same sexual stereotypes, which is untrue, and plays into the disability hierarchy.
  3. some disabled people are asexual and that’s ok!!

Additionally: It’s much better to say that people with disabilities are desexualized, because to describe us as “stereotyped as asexual” implies that asexuality in a disabled person is affirmed, when it’s more likely for a person to tell you you’re not really asexual because of your [insert disability], and to tell you that that if you didn’t have [disability] you would not be asexual. It spreads misinformation about disabled sexuality AND asexuality to say we’re stereotyped as asexual.

Not all disabilities are desexualized, though. Hell, I’d even go as far as saying that people with certain “dramatic” mental illnesses are often stereotyped as promiscious and overly sexual. Off the top pf my head borderline, bipolar, narcisstic pd, histrionics & antisocials are all stereotyped and fetishized as hypersexual. Especially bipolar mania is subject to this all the time. See movies such as Silver Linings playbook where the bipolar/manic main character is a repeatedly referred to as a slut and gets fired for sleeping with everyone at work. 

that’s precisely what i was referring to with different disabilities being subject to different sexual stereotypes.

desexualized is a good term to discuss how some disabled people are perceived, but other disabled people are hypersexualized, and that’s just as harmful.

Just something I was told, so it’s second hand from a woman who was doing a Fuckability workshop, but she said that people always assume that in the community, they are asexual in that post-accident, (or since birth, but in her case it was post-accident) she lost interest in sex and had no desire for any sort of sexual intercourse.

well friend, there’s a misconception about asexuality. while asexuals are defined as people who don’t experience sexual attraction, that does not mean every instance of not experiencing sexual attraction = asexuality. we don’t describe someone as asexual if they’re just not in the mood that night. the same applies for longer fluctuations in libido.

you use the phrase “lost interest”, and that’s a perfect example. if people believe she lost interest, that means interest is something she had before, something that went away as a result of her accident.

people weren’t thinking she changed sexual orientations, they were thinking her orientation was taken away from her.

when we use “asexual” in that context, we’re reinforcing harmful misconceptions about asexuality. we’re also laying the groundwork to erase the identities of disabled aces. abled asexuals can tell us we’re only asexual because of our disability, and disabled allosexuals can say it’s just internalized ableism.

it’s better to say that (some!) disabled people are desexualized, or that disabled people are denied access to orientations. that way we’re not perpetuating a faulty definition of asexuality, and we’re not throwing asexual disabled folks to the wolves.
