Original Title: 
Aseksualnost: izvan mislive seksualnosti
Resource Type: 
Analysis

The aim of this paper is to present asexuality as a relevant topic for gender studies

and queer theory through the scope of theories of asexuality and the manner of its social

expression. We start off by explicating theoretical frames in which asexuality is understood

and key features of its defining. Then we deal with the ways in which asexual people face

discrimination. We write about manners of expression of asexuality in society and about

changes it brings in domain of relationships. We offer the analysis of the development,

as well as the present state of researches and theories related to asexuality. Finally, in the

paper we discuss asexuality as part of queer politics and whether it is a social change in

comparison to LGB politics.
