Now to the unmarried and the widows I say: It is good for them to stay unmarried, as I am. But if they cannot control themselves, they should marry, for it is better to marry than to burn with passion. Nonetheless, some Christians regard asexuality as imaginary or even immoral. Sexuality is a gift from God and thus a fundamental part of our human identity.
Those who repress their sexuality are not living as God created them to be: fully alive and well. As such, they're most likely unhappy. Both homosexual and heterosexual people thought of asexuals as not only cold, but also animalistic and unrestrained. Asexuals also face prejudice from the LGBT community. In some jurisdictions, asexuals have legal protections. While Brazil bans since whatever pathologization or attempted treatment of sexual orientation by mental health professionals through the national ethical code,  the US state of New York has labeled asexuals as a protected class.
Asexual representation in the media is limited and rarely openly acknowledged or confirmed by creators or authors. Gilligan , the eponymous character of the s television series Gilligan's Island , would today be classified as asexual.
Asexuality as a sexual identity, rather than as a biological entity, became more widely discussed in the media in the beginning of the twenty-first century. However, this representation has been questioned by members of the asexual community including AVEN founder, David Jay due to the episode concluding in the reveal that the man simply had a pituitary tumor that reduced his sex drive, and the woman was only pretending to be asexual to please him. This has been further elaborated in the 4th season of the series and has been generally well accepted by the asexual community for its methods of positive representation.
