We used social identity theory to examine predictors of antiasexual bias in a sample of 1297 adults (48.6% female, 43.2% male, 6.4% nonbinary/other, 0.6% questioning). Multiple regression analysis found that social dominance orientation, right wing authoritarianism, singlism, low relational closeness with asexual individuals, and sexual orientation were signifi cant predictors of antiasexual bias. In support of social identity theory, and consistent with existing research on antiasexual bias, non-LGBTQ+ participants ( n = 576) scored higher on measures of antiasexual attitudes compared to nonasexual LGBTQ+ ( n = 569) and asexuals ( n = 143). Shared status as sexual minorities appears to provide common ground between asexuality and other LGBTQ+ identities.
