A Simple Presentation on Autism and Asexuality

isidia 1 of S. fuliginosa by wanderflechten, on FlickrI stumbled upon a video the other day which provides a simple way of explaining the “marriage” of two complex components: autism and asexuality.  Each component in itself is mysterious, complex, and at times misunderstood…   that many are often left curious and fascinated by how the two can sometimes blend together.

Even though I am not asexual, I do recall asexual tendencies in certain elements in my past, and therefore I have somewhat of an understanding whenever I have conversations with other autistic individuals who identify as asexual.

There is certainly more to address on autism and asexuality than the content of the slides provided in this 3 minute, 6 second video (which covers asexuality, sexual orientation and gender identity).  However, for those who are just beginning to explore the topic, this slide show presentation is an excellent place to start.

A special thank-you to Craig Thomson (weaveintothewin2) for creating the video!

Also, be sure to check Craig’s other videos in The Autism Survival Manual.
