Another episode in "Raising Boys"

I saw Miles looking a little pensive in his room and asked him what was up. It turns out that he had said that he never wanted to get married so his teenage brother called him asexual. Pete overheard this and responded that that was not appropriate to say to a 7-year-old, and now Miles wanted to know what was wrong with being asexual, and what it means.
So I calmly sat down with him and tried to give him the basics. Maybe I didn’t cover enough, though, because a few minutes later he came strolling out of his room yelling, “Guys, I’m sexual! Did you hear me? I’m SEXUAL!”
Now Colsen of course wants to know what “sexual” means… Here we go…
