ah okay. Thanks for clearing that up.

so I could be homoromantic and ace and never want to have sex but still have a girlfriend and still consider myself part of the LGBT community and yet you wouldn't consider me gay?? I mean that really doesn't seem right just saying even though I'm just a confused and awkward kid

i think like, yeah that's tru Technically, like strictly speaking gay = homosexual = sexually attracted to same sex (or at least according to the dictionary) and the same for straight and bi

but i think today i've seen a lot of ppl use it to mean both romantic and sexual attraction (or just any kind of attraction), even though that's not strictly what the words mean idk like i feel like it has the connotation of romantic attraction now too?? idk if this makes sense kskgsj but like for example if someone told me they were gay, i'd assume they were both romantically and sexually attracted to their gender ? idk

I know that "homosexual" applies to mostly just sexual orientation but like ??? It just seems to me (correct me if I'm wrong) that by saying someone's "not completely gay" because they're asexual is just valuing the validity of their preferences purely on a sexual basis. Like "oh you're not sexually attracted to x gender so obviouslu ur not REALLY gay". maybe just Romantic attraction is enough. Idek just my opinion this probably didn't make any sense
I would say it's like an "and/or" thing aka sexual and/or romantic

homoromantic = romantically attracted to the same gender
asexual = doesn't experience sexual attraction
you can love/date someone and not want to have sex with them
