CNN had an article today called Youth: Straight, LGBT or 'other'?
It summarized a recent Gallop poll about sexuality.
About half-way down, it goes into people who don't identify with "straight" or "GLBT" and quotes a sex therapist using the term "Gender and sexual diversity." Then it says, simply,
"That term could also include the 1% of people who identify as asexual, which means they aren't sexually attracted to anyone."
And that's it. No debate on legitimacy, no bringing in the "other side," just a neutral mention of asexualty with an accurate definition, and a (so far as I know) accurate statistic.
I don't think I've ever seen that in the media before. Either asexuality doesn't get mentioned at all or it becomes the whole point of the article, a 101 awareness bit, and often with a legitimacy debate attached.
