Asexual Research Reading Group Proposal:
nextstepcake: ( Link to original post here: http://nextstepcake.wordpress.com/2013/03/09/asexual-research-reading-group-proposal/) In a recent tumblr discussion this week, the idea was brought up of having some kind or reading group for aces (and others!) interested in discussing asexual research and other issues about asexuality in academia; I hope to continue the discussion here and get...
Asexuality book--gathering test audience
swankivy: Hey guys. I’ve written a book about asexuality and I’m looking to pursue traditional publication for it. (This means not publishing it myself, getting a publisher to buy it/market it, and using mainstream channels to get it into the bookstores.) I think having a mainstream nonfiction book about asexuality in the lifestyles section for people to find when they search for it will help...
Asexuality Questionnaire, Round 5: Relationships
ace-muslim: redbeardace: This week’s questionnaire topic: Relationships. Have you ever been in love? Has asexuality ever caused problems in a relationship? Do you notice people flirting with you? Are you confused about what your romantic orientation even is? All those and more! It’s in three parts, so be sure to answer them all! Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 (If you’re unfamiliar with the...
pearlsfromthewest: In January, the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force is having their annual conference in Atlanta. For the last few years, David and I have submitted workshop proposals together; last year we were accepted to the conference and presented the film (A)sexual. This year we’re trying to put together a panel discussion for the conference. We’re looking for a diverse panel of people...
Wow I am so sorry about the accidental reblogs from my personal blog yesterday/this morning! I had absolutely no idea they were coming over here—I thought tumblr was just eating them :/ Sorry!

southpawscopic: pearlsfromthewest: Howdy howdy, Sacramento’s fledgling ace meetup group is getting together again this week! Naked Lounge at Q & 15th, Friday night 7/13, 6pm-8pm. :) If you’re nearby, don’t miss it! Signal boosting for any Sacramento-area followers!

Ace kink stuff?
anthean: epochryphal: thislousytshirt: Hey guys!! this came up recently and has just come up again, does anyone have any resources or perspectives on asexual kink? I know of a bunch of people who are ace and kinky, but I’m never sure how comfortable they would be with being referred as a possible source of information/kinkjams. I’m really good at talking about my kink boundaries myself, but...
(A)sexual is out on iTunes now y'all
metapianycist: swankivy: The documentary’s out. Better get to watchin’! I am a movie star. (So what if it’s indie? It’s awesome.) http://itunes.apple.com/us/movie/a-sexual/id533681543 It is worth mentioning that it doesn’t seem to be available outside the U.S.
(A)sexual: Support The Creator
asexual-not-a-sexual: H’okay guys, turns out that the copy of (A)sexual on youtube was put up without the creator’s permission. Which ain’t cool, and I wont condone that kinda shit. The fact that there is a documentary about asexuality is absolutely fantastic, and we should support the filmmakers who took the time and effort to create it. So, please: Don’t watch the Youtube link. Wait...

Looking For New Design Inspiration
asexual-not-a-sexual: So, I am now officially done with school for the year. Half way done with undergrad. Officially declared my major as graphic design, declared my minor as art history. Gettin’ shit done. Yeah. Anyway! Now that I’m done with school, and have a month to go before my internship begins, I’ll have hours on end to do absolutely nothing. And, well, instead of rotting away, I...
New York Metropolitan Community Church of New York... →
southpawscopic: ace-reporter: I know the real life first name of one of these people, I think, but unless it is someone who has already given out his or her first name online, it’s better to use their aliases. Is it me? :3 Thanks for the shout-out about this! Metapianycist and I will be part of the panel discussion. It’ll be pretty fantastic, I’m sure. So if you’re in the NYC-area, check it...
Asexuals deserve a history.
nextstepcake: writingfromfactorx: And y’know, sometimes I worry that bits and pieces of it are being lost? Because there are things that I know, as someone who has been around for a fairly long time and listened in a lot of spaces, that I think other people might not. I’m thinking here of things like the Non-Libidoists, who were an early asexual splinter group that set itself in opposition to...
Single Asexuals blog →
cakeyeahasexuals: Just like any other singles blog on Tumblr, but for asexuals. I hadn’t ever seen one, and I know I can’t be the only asexual that’s looking for a partner! Please feel free to submit whether you’re looking for a partner, just friends, or anything in between.
Any Brazilian aces? Interview volunteer needed for...
avenpt: We’ve been speaking to a TV journalist with TV Cultura, Brazil who wishes to make a short clip about asexuality. They are speaking to a few of us over Skype. It would be great if we could have a Brazilian person on board too. If you’re Brazilian and would like to be interviewed on webcam, via skype, please contact email@example.com as soon as possible - and also cc the...
asexualeducation: A new tumblr blog has been created specifically for those who’re PoC and asexual. I would highly recommend following it even if you’re not a PoC but only to observe and learn, rather than contribute. http://asexualpocsunite.tumblr.com/ PoC = People of colour.
Different types of attraction.
asexualeducation: Sexual attraction: When one desires to have sexual relations with another specific person or persons. Sometimes it is felt along with other forms of attraction such as, romance, friendship. “That guy is so damn sexy, I could take him to bed and shag him all night long.” Romantic attraction: When one desires to have a romantic relationship with another specific person or...

turningblacktables: Well, this was a nice surprise to see featured on the BBC homepage.
Let's Not Generalize, Please →
writingfromfactorx: “Look. When you say “you know you’re ace when someone makes an innuendo and you think of something completely unrelated to sex?” That erases the experience of a lot of aces. Mine, for one–I usually see the innuendo. Or not being able to comprehend “sexy”–oh, come on, I can tell when someone is gorgeous and I’ve never had any trouble understanding what “sexy” means, if only...

Modelled after the popular postsecret and queersecrets, Aro Secret is a platform for anonymous venting based on and around anything to do with aromantics and the aromantic spectrum. We accept images, text and quote formats. Aro Secret wants to be as accessible as...
backwardsandinheels asked: I love this blog, but I'd love to read a blog geared specifically towards aromantics too. Any suggestions?
It's just so annoying.
hopesichord: Listen, Donald Glover and others of the internet: I think I was seven when I had this sort of realization that I would be single probably forever. This wasn’t even something I felt bad about, or sad about — it was a fact. I knew this at seven. When I was 13 I lamented the fact that I couldn’t join a nunnery without converting to Catholicism, like that would give me a place in...

thecuntmentality: tangentteaparty: no, i’m not committing suicide. but i do need a bit of assistance. for those who don’t know, i work at my university’s lgbt center. we have a smallish library which is woefully under-stocked and out-of-date. since none of my coworkers really care for books or libraries as much i do, i have made it my task this year to collect books i think need to be on our...
UK magazine looking for young Asexual Woman...
nethdugan: So I originally spotted this on AVEN here so they’ve been vetted to make sure they’re not voyeurs or something. She’s from Grazia. Thing is, several people (including me) have responded that we’re happy to talk to her we just don’t want our picture taken. Thus I thought to put the call out to tumblr - asexuals exist outside of AVEN after all. So if you’re an asexual women, willing...

To apply, write a few sentences in the submit box about why you think you would do a good job as a moderator for A Gray Asexual Space, and include your email address. Willingness to be accessible in terms of trigger warnings (as described here, here, here and here) and image descriptions (as described here and here) on the...
Asexuality and sexuality are not black and white; some people identify in the gray (spelled “grey” in some countries) area between them. People who identify as gray-A can include, but are not limited to those who: do not normally experience sexual attraction, but do experience it sometimes experience sexual attraction, but a low sex drive experience sexual attraction and drive, but not...
Asexual Survey (This is important, guys!)
quirkysaur: Via the marvellous Ninny: “I’m sure a lot of you know about/completed this already but… Please take the Asexual Awareness Week Asexy Census! To be scientifically representative, the census needs at least 500 responses. If this happens the results can go towards future academic research into asexuality, and give us a better understanding of the asexual population. Please...
Help Asexual Awareness Week raise $1,000!
acesecrets: Asexual Awareness Week (October 23-29 2011) needs to raise $1,000 to buy copies of (A)sexual and to create a web advertising campaign. The money will be spent on two things: 1. $500 will be allotted for a web advertising campaign that introduces asexuality to the wider public and directs people to the Asexual Awareness Week website. 2. $500 will be allotted for purchasing...
Survey of Tumblr Queer Community →
demisexuality: Sorry to bother, but I figured this would help get as much publicity as possible. I am trying to get basic demographic information about the queer tumblr community. Unfortunately I was a little limited on questions (only 10) but in my survey, I’m including aromantic, aces, demisexuals, etc. And fuck anyone who doesn’t consider them to be in the queer community cause I sure as...
A PSA About Asexuality and Aromanticism
outlawroad: Dear World, Please take note of the following facts about asexual and aromantic people. —— Asexuality is an orientation based on the lack of sexual attraction to other humans beings. This means asexual people never look at other human beings and experience an arousal response or a desire to have sex with them. That is all it means. Some asexual people still have a sex drive and...
Anonymous asked: Is there perhaps a Grey-A tumblr of which you might know? Like one specifically for them?
Hello! I was wondering if you could have a look at (and show your followers) this blog. http://thestoryofanitandshe.tumblr.com/ It’s a journal of the relationship between a gender-fluid asexual, and a straight girl with an exception. There’s only very little up at the moment, but that’s because it’s new. Thanks for your time. =)
Ace Visibility Materials
nextstepcake: So, I’ve been thinking about making some kinds of ace visibility materials - something along the lines of those kinds of pamphlets you see sometimes that are like “Bisexuality - what you should know”, or like “coming out as gay or lesbian” or whatever. Basic info on asexuality. So, tumblrites, I have a question - what format would you most like to see for these? I hope to do...

Important! Ace Prom Date Has CHANGED
demisexuality: It has been moved to a week sooner: September 9th, 2011. Time is still 7 PM to 11 PM US Central Time. Everything else is the same. Reblog this around so everyone who wants to attend Ace Prom knows about the change of date.
southpawscopic: demisexuality: Occasionally on tumblr I see posts about “Tumblr prom” or “[insert group here] prom” so I thought “Why don’t we have an Ace prom?” I mean, so many of us don’t know any other people who are part of the asexual spectrum offline and it’s not like we can all (easily) meet up somewhere, so why not have something where we all kind of hang out online together? Anyway,...
