The Telegraph, a UK publication, ran an article featuring the story of a romantic asexual. Like other recent stories, it focuses on how romantic relationships can work without sex being involved in the relationship mechanics.
Olivia Golding, and a few other aces, gave their coming out story to the paper. Because the publication contains little that asexuals do not already know, repeating the messages here would be redundant. Looking at what these stories mean is far more productive.
Mainstream media publications are realizing that there are more aspects to asexuality other than not experiencing sexual attraction, but they do not seem to be willing to go any further than looking at relationships.
Navigating asexual relationships is an important issue, but there are other deeper issues that the new genre of 'romantic asexuals exist' stories ignore. Ignoring these issues is not new, and national publications cannot cater to the needs of every sexual minority. It would be nice, if someone decided to do an investigation into cases of asexual discrimination, if they can find any. How older asexuals fare in nursing homes should also be investigated..
Some things, such as allowing asexuals increasing accesses into LGBT spares, are being dealt with in their respective communities. Tensions have eased over the last several years.
