People had plenty of opinions on that kiss with Betty.

What characters from film or television have you found yourself relating to as a person on the asexual spectrum? We want to know!

ABC

Tell us a little about the character (or characters) you love for a chance to be featured in an upcoming BuzzFeed LGBT post.

Nickelodeon

Did this particular character help you come to terms with your own sexuality? What would you say to people who think representation onscreen isn't ~a big deal~? And what sort of characters do you want to see more of?

Do you have an example of bad representation? Tell us about that, too.
