    I've heard of at least one person who was denied the priesthood for being asexual - you're considered Intrinsically Disordered if you don't want to engage in heterosexual intercourse.

    I also know someone who was partway to becoming a nun before finding out that no, really, naturally celibate women are not wanted.

    It's really screwed up because the DEFAULT in many Roman Catholic families when anyone comes out as asexual is 'The Lord Has Given You A Calling'. I've read Tumblr posts by someone being given hell for not becoming a nun - some of her relatives are convinced she's practically hellbound for Refusing God's Plan For Her Life - and meanwhile the church won't take her as a nun unless she lies and says she desires sex with a man!
