TW depression

Asexuals show overall depression prevalence levels similar to those of queer allosexuals, comparison-wise. Aces seem more at risk than gay people, but less than mspec people (multi attraction spectrum, especially pan- & polysexuals). The comparison below should only give an overall framework to show where asexuals fit within (pansexuals as one example of an high-risk group at one end, etc.).

Queer mental health without aspec inclusion is careless at best!

Aromantic people seem to be missing in the report, which highlights the ongoing erasure of aromantic experiences within queer spaces. It would’ve been so important since the probability of negative impact on aros is understudied and often disregarded. Criticism to @lgbtOutLife.

As previously reported, research done by the Charité Berlin (>>“COVID-19-Studie: «Asexuelle und trans Menschen fühlen sich deutlich einsamer»(Nachtrag)„) found asexuals to be suffering immensely under the on-going COVID pandemic and loneliness.
