I’m going to make this short, because it’s Breitbart, there’s hardly any point. I’m only talking about it because a friend was quoted in it.
Recently, Breitbart posted an article titled “Asexual” is a Hot New Sexual Identity In the San Francisco Bay Area. Rather than doing their own journalism, they basically copy content from Mercury News, and add insinuations that asexuality is a ridiculous trend that is confined only to recent times, and to the San Francisco Bay Area.
They also spoke to an “expert” from Israel, the author of The Truth: A Pathway to the Subconscious. She says:
My research shows that every person is divided into five different levels of being; the mental body, the feelings body, the emotional body, the spiritual body, and the sexual body. […] The people who define themselves as asexual, most of them are activated from a conditioning that says ‘sexuality equals delete’.
At first it looked like Breitbart quoted an “expert” to invalidate asexuality, but on second glance I believe they were trying to find someone ridiculous to “support” asexuality, in order to make asexuality look ridiculous. But nobody in the ace community would take this woman seriously, and we can all see that it was Breitbart who thought she was worth talking to.
Breitbart also wrote about asexuality last year. What? I don’t follow Breitbart, I get Google alerts, okay?
