kingnocastle: ace-reporter: I’m actually worried that the article may say that Asexuality is an orientation in Russian and there was a translation problem when the English version was written. With just a quick look, I can tell you that the same problems are present in the Russian. “Асексуалы - люди, которые отказались от секса добровольно - каждый по своим причинам, у каждого - свои...

Please Stop Asking the Impossible →
One of the fun things about being a webmaster or webmistress is seeing the searches that bring people to the site. Asexual News is still small enough where this can occur. (There’s a about 843 different key phrases used this month according to Advanced Web Statistics.) Sometimes it is frustrating.

aceadmiral: ace-reporter: I found this on a blog that I shall not name. It doesn’t matter. It’s just someone’s opinion: ..almost every “oppression” you suffer as an asexual is due to either misogyny or homophobia (which is really just another extension of misogyny tbh), but sexual privilege is not a thing, queer people… When people say it’s due to misogyny, what they mean is,...

Relationship Therapist Advice to a Sexual/Asexual... →
The only issue I personally took with this is the old and often repeated line that a person should rule out medial issues before declaring their Asexuality. It seems that many people giving this advice seldom realize that Asexuals have already been through this process for themselves. Edit: I missed *this* little gem: The criterion that separates an intimate relationship from all others is the...
Being an Active Asexual in Israel →
Asexuals exist all over the world. Asexual News’s focus tends to be on the United States simply because that’s where one of the most active writers lives.

Those were dark days indeed.
Don't Know How to Feel About This
I run in Asexual circles. I also run in smaller transgendered circles. I’m not a journalist or an activist in the latter. (It’s not that I couldn’t be, but it’s just something I’d rather not have people find out about me in meat space just yet.) However, there are some tendencies of the people in the trans circles that are getting on my nerves. The first is the...
Wikibook: An Idea I'd Love to See
It’s the social network that anyone can edit.

I also need to include a link to it.

I’m not sure if this is related to Asexuality or not to be honest, although the ABC Network does have a show on ABC Family that includes a possibly Asexual character.

misandrist asked: Would it be possible to use the article from Asexual news on Asexual erasure for my zine? I feel as though it would be perfect!

Polygamy and Polyamory
This post should be seen as nothing other than my opinion. Other members of the staff do not agree with me on this, nor do I think they share my confusion. Polygamy has gotten a bad rap. It’s gotten a bad rap for a good reason. Many people associate the modern practices with the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. (I will use the term Fundamentalist Mormons to...

And here’s a link from another author addressing Christianity as it relates to Asexuals specifically. I think the people who wonder why people try to find a connection between the two are right.
An inappropriate reaction to the Earthquake
Earthquakes don’t happen very often on the East Coast. They happen vary rarely, in fact. I could before today say I’d never been through one. I always thought of them as noisy, scary affairs where the ground rumbles and the Earth shakes. Of course, this may be because my perceptions of the events are based on movies rather than the reality. I think it’s cool. In fact, it was so...
I can't believe I did this
When I posted the recent Salon interview with David Jay, I actually intended for the link to go to Salon.com. It seems that the links got mixed up somehow. While I’m not above promoting Asexual News in this manner, it was not my intent here. I rightly thought people would be more interested in the interview itself and not what someone else had to say about it. I’m not even sure if I...
Something Many Asexuals Already Know: Libido and... →
I can only imagine that there are people who know a lot more about this topic than the Asexual news staff.
vladdraculea asked: In your article about David Jay interviews, you wrote "Not only is there no evidence of this as of now, there is now evidence to suggest that the rates of trauma and mental illness are the same among Asexuals as they are amongst the rest of the general population." This is awesome news! Do you have a link to the study? I'm sorry to be so behind the times with this, but this means...

I think it’s just me, but I thought this woman’s writing style ruined this piece. I also think she’s confusing Abstienence with Asexuality. The two often occur together, but they are not the same thing.

violentopposites: I posted this before as a response to this: http://badasexualfairy.tumblr.com/post/9142202246, but I’ve decided to post it again as a separate post because I believe it can stand alone.

Although I do not focus mainly on LGBT issues, I’m not a fan of this policy. Placing the word ‘churches’ in such a policy means that the school district is not interested in neutrality.

demi-lesbian: It would be great to hear what you think problems that asexuals face are. Since you’ve all heard what I think (lol) These can be in general, from the “sexual world”, from your community (e.g. religious, queer) or from the asexual community.

You may nave noticed that all of these subjects are the topics of articles on Asexual News. There’s a good reason these topics are covered. I have to make educated guesses on the entertainment items that will appeal to Asexuals. It’s not like I have a lot of demographics data to go on. I’m not always sure that I’m right about this. I don’t think not liking these...
