It happens. Because people are jerks.
People will come up with tons of reasons for why we’re “really not asexual” though and weight is just one of them. That’s why coming out can be so difficult, you know? But if you still wanna come out, just- screw the haters! But not actually. ;)

there is literally no escape
the whole ‘aromantic asexual people are just straight people’ says a lot about people’s belief in ‘straight is the default’
can straight girls please stop shitting their pants over being mistaken for lesbians or being called lesbians as an insult?
when someone tries to insult you by calling you a lesbian, they’re a homophobe. if you actually find it insulting to be called a lesbian, you’re a homophobe too. this is not a difficult concept to grasp.
