How to be Ace: A Memoir of Growing up Asexual – Rebecca Burgess
Genre: Memoir | Comics & Graphic Novels | LGBTQIA
“When I was in school, everyone got to a certain age where they became interested in talking about only one thing: boys, girls and sex. Me though? I was only interested in comics.”
Growing up, Rebecca assumes sex is just a scary new thing they will ‘grow into’ as they get older, but when they leave school, start working and do grow up, they start to wonder why they don’t want to have sex with other people.
