Galop,the LGBT+ anti-abuse charity, released the 2022 ‚LGBT+ People & Sexual Violence‘ report about queer survivor experiences of sexual violence in the United Kingdom over 16 years of age, including 22.6% asexual respondents.
Focusing on explicit mentions of asexuality:
- „Some groups surveyed were more likely to experience sexual violence with intent to convert or punish than others. This included trans men (35% of 72), non-binary people (32% of 276) and ace people (34% of 212).„
- „I told him what I was going through, discovering my asexuality, and he laughed. He said that I simply hadn’t had sex yet and that he could fix me. After that he assaulted me.„
- „I feel like sexual violence made me doubt whether my asexuality was truly a valid sexuality or just a result.“
PinkNews coverage includes the overall findings since the results were mostly presented as combined LGBTQIA+ experiences. They did not specifically mention the increased risk of asexual people.
