The new, so new that many do not know it yet, it is to not have sex at all. It shows it by wearing a black ring on the middle finger of his right hand. It has the ring during the time they are not open for six, so some have such a ring wearing a shorter time, while others have been there for a long time.
The black ring is for those who have no desire to relationships for a shorter or longer period, that is asexual and is not open to suggestions. It's not about a self-chosen celibacy, ie it has a strong sexual desire but refrains from it.
A common here novel that has a plain ring on your finger through the ring shows that he does not want to have sex with other women. Anyone who has a black ring shows that he does not want to have sex with either men or women.
Just as LGBTQ-are fighting for their rights in society to get to have sex marriages through the rainbow flag, so fighting those who do not want sex at all for their rights in society now. Some LGBTQ-are feeling a little provoked by this.
Some who do not have sex at all feel discriminated against by society, because they constantly have to explain himself, so also want this group now seem so they will not have to feel left out. There is a lack of knowledge in society.
From the beginning, it was the rainbow flag for the gay, but then so added more and more groups. Should the asexual to belong to this group? It seems so, so now you should maybe call the group HBTQA.
What to as Mormons think about this? As a single so you can live the law of chastity because an asexual life. There is nothing of sex life at all, and neither can go and train sexually by others, because then live not according to the law of chastity. As Mormons have not opted out of the sexual life, for there is nothing to choose.
So I'm starting to wonder if the black ring would be a good and fun thing. It might be really hip to be a Mormon, to be a HBTQA-ers. Some get enough dåndimpen when they think about this, I can understand that. But think of the benefits that come with this.
Instead of constantly having to explain single Mormon total absence of sexual relations, then it has "the little black ring". And just like that one belongs to an inside group and so can absorb a great deal of understanding from society.
For surely it must be nice to come in from the cold, in the heat and allowed to be accepted and avoid all this discrimination can be felt because they did not have a sex life at all and does not feel that sexual desire in himself the whole time.
I think some people in the community have gotten the idea that singelmormoner walk around with repressed sexuality who always wants to come out. But then you live not according to the law of chastity. But as single Mormons can feel that it's nice to be in a context where there is no need to feel abnormal, for society is so sexualized everywhere all the time. It is very intrusive. It's nice to be allowed to feel normal in that context.
Celibacy means not having sex. Being asexual means that you do not feel sexual attraction, but to live the law of chastity means so much more than abstaining from sexual acts. This means that you do not feel any desire for another person, whether that person is single or not. Lust will then have an intimate relationship, it created / raised then.
That is why man Mormons have recommendations on clothes, how to meet and so on. The asexuelle can feel attraction, but feel it does not need to act out this attraction is not sexual. It would instead prefer to get to know the person you are interested in. Asexual people have sex in them right circumstances.
There is a difference between celibacy, asexual and abstinent, different concepts, but they overlap. For an asexual person's sex is not like that very interesting, but they are more interested in getting to know a person and have a close intimate relationship. An asexual person can have sex if it wants to, but then it's about sex is subordinate to the fervent nearby.
Anyone who is asexual may experience discrimination from all sides when people do not understand the situation. There is also a risk that the asexual may experience a "helpful" corrective rape, violence or harassment of people find it offensive when they encounter people who live an asexual life.
Within RFSL there is a network for the group that has the little black ring.
