Too many young people grow up believing that their lack of sexual desire means they are “broken,” so writer Molly Muldoon and cartoonist Will Hernandez–both in the ace community–are here to shed light on society’s misconceptions of asexuality and what being ace is really like.
This graphic novel was exactly what it proclaimed to be. A quick and easy guide to asexuality. Told with great visuals, and accompanying dialogue, lots of questions and answers, it helps people that are struggling to understand asexuality, whether for themselves, or others to grasp the basics.
The intent of this book is not to answer questions about ALL the different aspects of asexuality there are, but it does make sure to touch on gray ace, as well as both ends of the ace spectrum, and what it can meet for anyone who may identify as ace.
Sometimes, trying to understand where you are on the LGBTQIA+ spectrum can be not just difficult, but like picking a name out of a hat (or is that just how I feel for myself?), but this book at least helps to identify one particular aspect that has been…for want of a better word…a gray area for me.
5 pieces of eye candy – simply because nothing better out there in this category for me!
(P.S. I know this wasn’t an m/m romance per se, but I could not resist reviewing this book, because it hits so close to home for so many who are questioning. Be Brave! Don’t be afraid to ask the questions!)
