shel silverstein- "The Voice" When I think about asexuality and what it was like for me growing up in a world seemingly obsessed with traditional heteronormativity, I find this poem is something that every child should know by heart. There are some things that a child just KNOWS about him or herself. I KNEW I would work with animals. I KNEW I would not marry or have children.

There is a voice inside of you That whispers all day long, "I feel this is right for me, I know that this is wrong." No teacher, preacher, parent, friend Or wise man can decide What's right for you -- just listen to The voice that speaks inside. -Shel Silverstein

When your situation involves more than you, listen to your voice. Then all you have to do is figure out what their voice is telling them. Maybe you should ask, because it sucks to wonder. Then it comes down to trust, motivations, and actions to find the truth.
