Minnesota Child Protection League Leader refers to asexuality as a gender

See also

The list of genders has grown beyond male and female. It now includes asexuals and anyone who identifies as LGBT, according to Barb Anderson, leader of the Minnesota Child Protection League. Anderson meets with churches and socially conservative groups throughout Minnesota campaigning against a new anti-bullying law. The bill, the Safe and Supportive Minnesota Schools Act is likely to pass in 2014.

The Minnesota Child Protection League's leader does not distinguish between gender and sexuality. She lumps lesbians, gays and bisexuals together with transgender individuals. The first three groups deal with sexual orientation, while the latter deals with gender identity. Asexuals are people who do not experience sexual attraction.

Anderson's ignorance extends to other LGBT topics. Even a Twin Cities Daily Planet reporter calls her church-group presentations factually challenged. She accuses sexuality research pioneer Alfred Kinsey of being pedophile, and suggests that he started the gay rights movement.

Asexuals consider themselves part of the LGBT community, and many LGBT groups accept aces into their ranks. Gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender groups wage a campaign against school bullying. Asexuals also face these issues, but there is little research regarding the bullying of asexual teenagers. The lack of research applies to many other asexual issues as well.
