Aromantic, Biromantic, Heteroromantic, Homoromantic or Panromantic
It's thinking that there is more than just Sexual Attraction and it may exist outside of Sexual Orientation

the more we try and be inclusive with terms and categories, it seems the more we try to fit people into them and it becomes less "Free" if that makes sense...
On one hand Labels give us power, it's what we identify with and what we can say "I'm 'x'" and proud and i deserve Respect and Equal Rights Etc
On the other though, as Inclusive as people try and be.. it can become exclusive because you may only fit into a certain group slightly and than get rejected by said group

Annee, It's not just being "older" in our community that can make us a bit of pariah ... if you don't have a perfectly symetrical face, smooth skin, gym bod ... well, some guys won't even talk to you in "the culture." (I slowly found out those types weren't WORTH talking to, LOL) Besides, I used to get mistaken (late at night in lowered light after everyone had been drinking for hours) for Russell Crowe ... so don't cry for me Argentina ... I did "okay." LOL
Oh! Okay thank you. Let's take that one out because it doesn't fit too well. I've had a few girl crushes so I guess biromantic would probably be closest?
It all gets complicated real quick especially since I'm mostly asexual but that's more situational than orientational.
