What Does Plan B Have to Do With Asexuality? →
America may be hypersexualized, but that doesn’t make it asexual. it just make people tired of the imagery
Sexuality is a lot like blood types.
panaroman: You can be strictly heterosexual. You are blood type A. You can be strictly homosexual. You are blood type B. You can be bisexual or pansexual. That makes you AB. (A little of both.) You can be asexual. You are blood type O. Not a really good analogy. People with AB can accept any blood type when donating, and Type O is the universal donor.
France Surrenders to AVEN →
French Avenites declare their own Asexuality Day We’re just making a bad joke, folks. The idea of cheese-eating surrender monkeys comes from the Simpsons, and the writers were embarrassed it took hold in American popular culture.
Informal Polll -- Let's see Cisgender male...
Tumblr demis often go on about how people don’t get demisexuality. I’m not going to add anything to this argument. However, there is one thing I have wondered. Most of the demisexuals I’ve seen on AVEN are either cis females or female-to-male trans people. Now, what I want to know is how many cisgender male demisexuals there are. Please reblog.
We have a poll up on Asexual News
We are asking our readers if joining forces with Gay, Inc would best serve the interests of the asexual community. If you are not familiar with the term, Gay Inc refers to organizations like HRC and GLAAD. They often focus more on Gay and Lesbian concerns than the other letters of the acronym.

This works the other way folks. Of course, everyone on Tumblr pays no attention to the Asexuals who weren’t comfortable with this grouping. Fortunately, these people seem to be less vocal than they were in the past.

You can always suggest your own polls if you do not like ours. I know it’s been a while, but Lara has been busy.
You know, I hate doing this, but here's a contest
If Ace-reporter.tumblr.com can manage to get 500 followers, the 1000th follower will get a “My Number on the Kinsey Scale is Imaginary” button. (Sorry, you’d be surprised how much Lara loses on the site and a shirt is a bit out of her price range.)

For those wondering about Asexual News
There are a few issues here. The first is the ad revenues for the site have been low and they are not picking up. I think this might be a domain name issue. This can be solved by changing the name. Now, the second problem is a cash flow issue on my end. I will have the sight back up Monday. I’ve been busy covering local news stories, and I forgot the due date for the hosting bill. ...
i-once-had-a-guy-tell-me: I once had a guy tell me I should really go and see a doctor because he “once saw on House that a guy was asexual because he had a brain tumour”. (submitted by anonymous) Yes, and we all know that House is a show with remarkable medical and scientific accuracy. The show’s popularity had nothing to do with an anti-hero and an ass who was barely tolerable as a...

I’m making the assumption that most readers of this particular Tumblr are asexual. Being the bitter curmudgeon that I am, I’m also unimpressed with another “asexuals exist” story.

This is one of those pieces you really *hate* to write. I scanned the transcript several times to see if there was anything that could be construed as not portraying every asexual as having a romantic orientation. I suspect Jay’s comments were simply edited.

Thanks, Special Snow Flake Hall of Fame
We appreciate the back link. I may think it’s a strange name for a novel featuring asexual characters, but it’s best if the author of the books speaks for whateverpronounspreferred-self.* *I don’t know which pronouns are preferred, and I refuse to use the ones favored by the academic community until they can come up with one that all of them agree upon.

Asexual News is Down
This is the result of a bunch of errors, only one of which is my fault. This is the basic outline: Hostgator purchased Registry Rocket before I bought a site through them. I purchased a hosting plan and registered it through Registry Rocket I renewed the domain on February 6 of last year. (it wasn’t due until the 10th.) Unfortunately, this means it fell due yesterday. Normally, this...

Changes Coming to Asexual News
Asexual News is reaching its second year. (It’s birthday happens to be the same as the site’s owners, making them both Aquarii, for those who are interested in astrological trivia.) As part of the second anniversary, I want to correct things that have plagued me and the site. First, I’ll be adding a drop down menu system. I just figured out how to do this within Joomla itself,...
