When I came out to my mom as asexual, she thought it was the same as aromantic and freaked out. I reassured her I wasn’t, but she still didn’t want me to “label myself” at such a young age, even though my family is fine with me being nonbinary and panromantic. She said she didn’t have sexual attraction until she was 16, so I plan on waiting til then and telling her again. I think she’s just scared because my brother is on the autism spectrum and she wants us to be able to get married and have kids.
