Ace Admiral: Asexy Fic I Know About →
Asexy Fic I Know About So there was a fanfic flamingo a couple of weeks ago about asexy fic, and a lot of people in the comments were like, “What? Where!?!?!” So, here is a list of the fic I personally know about including asexuality, demi/grey-asexuality, or asexy themes (as of 6/31/11). I haven’t read all of it (I’m not even in some of the fandoms), so I can’t vouch for all of them, but more is...
TV Tropes: Asexuality →
fuckyeahasexuality: Penny: I have to ask: what’s Sheldon’s deal? Is it girls…? Guys…? Sock puppets…? Leonard: Honestly, we’ve been operating under the assumption that he has no deal. Penny: Come on, everyone has a deal. Wolowitz: Not Sheldon. —The Big Bang Theory In most fiction you encounter tropes involving sexuality. You run into occasions such as Everyone Is Gay, No Bisexuals, Everyone...
the AVEN contingent at SF pride made the news! →
We even got in a quick blurb about aces. Yay for visibility! We’re in hour five of the parade coverage, at about 31 minutes in. We’re the purple group right after the hotel workers union float (the one with the giant mop).

evelanthean: Here is a picture: [image: a group of about fifteen people, most wearing shades of purple and white, posed to take a picture. In front is a purple banner with “AVEN” and “asexuality.org” written in white letters. Five people are holding large silver balloons spelling out ASEXY on sticks. A few other people are holding large purple balloons shaped like hearts, and one person is...
The Entire Asexual Community Sccoped Variety
ace-reporter: Yay us! (from the article) “There are early indications that there may be a link between Asperger’s and asexuality.” umm….like what? I keep a close eye on asexuality-related research and news, and there’s absolutely nothing of any credibility that indicated a link.

CAKE YEAH ASEXUALS: A random moment of Ace-ness →
A random moment of Ace-ness We’ve all heard of the phrase “I’d tap that” right? My friends and I often use it jokingly. (And since I’m a lesbian-romantic ace, I occasionally get a little giggly over someone I find especially cute.) Well, the other day at I was at work and spacing out, thinking about a movie I had recently watched and how pretty the main character was. And I thought idly to...
A brief history of asexuality in fandom, as seen... →
writingfromfactorx: “Asexuality in fandom, asexual representation in fandom, attitudes towards asexuality in fandom, all of that - these are changing incredibly quickly. Eighteen months ago I was astounded to see more than, like, two other fannish aces around. A year ago, if you’d told me we’d be criticising particular tropes in asexual fic at this point I would have laughed in your face...

Okay, I have a question for you guys:
lizziegoneastray: Why was Dan Savage allowed to be in our documentary? No, seriously, why? He is no friend to the asexual community, from what I’ve seen. Personally, I don’t really think anyone but the documentary makers have the right to say who is “allowed”: to be in their documentary. It’s a documentary, not a propaganda piece. And while I personally don’t...
Never thought I'd have to come out to my mother.

polisci-prelaw: (now in rebloggable post form!) IT IS ON THIS DAY, 2nd JUNE 2011, THAT THE ASEXUAL AGENDA HAS BEEN OFFICIALLY ESTABLISHED.

clashingcurves: Now, it may be that I have been doing way too much multi-dimensional calculus for my own good but… There are some things in math that can simply only be defined by what they are not. There are tests and theorems that you can rigorously apply to hopefully get a specific answer. Yet no matter…

aceadmiral: Guys. Guys. Guys. Asexuals don’t have “straight” privilege. No, not even if we are heteroromantics in a relationship with a person who appears to be the binary opposite of the gender we are. We have passing privilege. This is a very important distinction. “Straight privilege” implies there are asexuality is not actually distinct from heterosexuality (i.e. what the haters have...
