Yeah majority of the LGBTQIA community actually hates this term. One of the biggest reasons why is that it inherently, by definition, excludes those who have a learning and/or mental disability and it is often used by egotistical people.

Rather, an alternative term has popped up on the rader known as “noetisexual”. It is defined as a mental attraction rather than a purely “intellectual” one. It’s being attracted to the way their minds work.

I’m a queer adopted healthcare worker who writers in their spare time. I have a MPH degree.
