This is a tiny rant.
This is not overly important, more of a personal irk.
I love reading other people's work here, Fanfiction.net, and AO3.
I head cannon several characters as Asexual, and am always excited when I see that in the tags.
However, I am often disappointed when I actually get down to reading.
Alot of the time the character is not truly asexual, but was using it as a cover to avoid their true feelings/sexuality.
The fact there are so many examples of this happening makes Asexual sound invalid, and I feel a tiny bit left out.
So, to my fellow writers, please only tag characters as Asexual if they are Asexual!
