This week’s readings have really challenged my prior understanding of gender and sexuality. Before, reading “Reconsidering Asexuality and its Radical Potential” I really honestly had no idea how it could be expressed. I mean I had heard the term “asexual” before but, I didn’t always understand it s meaning. According to the reading asexual is “as a lack of sexual attraction combined with one’s identification as asexual”. In my mind I wasn’t aware that there was individual’s in society that actually did not gain sexual attraction from another individual. But, of course this was because I didn’t have the proper knowledge to fully understand the term. In terms of prior reading that we’ve had I felt that Serrano’s “Bisexuality and Binaries” did the complete opposite as oppose to the article about asexuality. Serano’s article more so challenged it reader to understand is was possible to be sexually attracted to both sexes of men and women and to understand that for, example if a woman was to have sex with both a man and a woman she could still be sexually aroused yet feel different emotions while dealing with both sexes. So labeling yourself as bisexual could solely express how you could grasp different emotions and sexual experiences no matter what sex you dealt with. I thought this interesting and could prove a point to society that some individuals don’t have a choice in being bisexual. It just so happens that are attracted to both sexes and that just is what it is. Plan and simple.
