The term “abrosexual” has recently hit headlines, which is a sexual identity for individuals who experience perceived fluctuations and changes in their own sexual orientation.

The author, Emma Flint, shared her experience coming out as abrosexual and highlighted the lack of awareness and understanding of the term in society.

She emphasized the importance of respectful communication and education for acceptance. (Trending: Trans Athlete Breaks College Record After Joining Women’s Team)

“For those of you who don’t know what abrosexuality is, in layperson’s terms, it simply means when someone’s sexual identity fluctuates and changes,” Flint wrote.

“When I was growing up, I’d never heard the term abrosexual – you were either straight, gay, or lesbian as far as nineties society was concerned. Anything else was made up,” she wrote.

“Of course, we know that’s far from the truth – but societal blindspots mean we learn terms much slower than if they’re readily accessible.”

“When I tell people that I’m abrosexual, I’m often greeted by a blank expression, followed by a question of what the term means. And questions are fine, as long as they’re respectful.”

“I’m not expecting everyone to know what it means – hell, I didn’t until two years ago – but you should always listen with respect.”

“Eventually, I hope that abrosexuality will be seen as normal, just another identity that someone might have, and not regarded as a way to be ‘on trend’, as some of the hurtful comments I’ve received suggest,” Flint wrote.

“Acceptance can only come from education, and stepping outside your comfort zone to familiarise yourselves with terminology you might not know.”

The new term comes alongside the emergence of “neo genders” in United Kingdom school systems.

“Students in schools across Britain have been allowed to identify as dinosaurs, horses and moons, amid warnings that teachers should address such incidents as a safeguarding issue,” The Telegraph wrote.
