don’t let anyone tell you how or to what degree you should identify with your culture. it doesn’t matter where you were born, where your parents were born, when you/they emigrated.
your experiences and feelings are valid, no matter how conflicting, dissonant, or confusing.
your identity can change. and you do not have to explain yourself to others.
Being asexual is like being born without a sense of smell but everywhere you go people are spraying perfume in your face and when you ask them to stop and tell them it’s irritating and you can’t smell the perfume anyway they get huffy and respond with “Don’t lie to me; I can clearly see you have a nose. Everybody has a nose therefore everybody smells things and besides maybe you just haven’t found the right scent yet.” and then you want to scream
