New Poll Up On The Site
I know many of you don’t use AVEN, but do you think AVEN should have an aromantic forum? You’ll find the poll beneath the banner on the right hand side.
Batman: Not Gay or Asexual Probably →
This is posted because we solved all of the other problems Asexuals and LGBT people have to deal with.

This is not always true.

1.) I worry that this post will start another round of idiotic trolling 2.) This story is actually depressing 3.) Part of me still wants to say “Suck it, Trolls.” Note: The survey also showed that people are more likely to discriminate against all sexual minorities.
Have You Known an Asexual Who Needed the Services... →
This is the poll that had the fewest number of participants. This may be because of its subject matter, but this is not a subject on which I wish to be light hearted.
LGBT vs LGBT and T →
Aces will recognize this argument, although it may take them a while to realize where they heard it.

Something about feminism and science fiction just don’t want to go together in my mind.

I saw this on AVEN origionally. I don’t necessarily agree with their reasoning and I forgot the source link to that thread…

God, I really have got to stop giving these stories the #Asexual tag.

The title is awkward and the video maker speaks a little too fast, but there’s good information here.

Okay, it looks like I will be able to keep Asexual News on its current server a little while longer. The provider granted an extension, and it looks like I will be able to pay the hosting costs. With luck, I will even be able to pay them before the extension runs out. While there are other issues I need to resolve, I do not feel like sharing the details of all of them. I am still fairly...
I searched Grooveshark for "asexual".
imyouraziraphale: I found a song called “asexual meat kitchen”. You would have had more success if you searched for Asexuals.

I am excited over this, but found I really couldn’t add additional commentary.
Pearls from the West: Asexuality, Trevor Project,... →
pearlsfromthewest: The accusation/idea that asexuals are trying to convert LGBTQ+ youth in their time of crisis through our partnership with the Trevor Project is particularly hilarious because it fails to be based this fun little thing I like to call truth. The Trevor Project is interested in including all queer…
The choices in the voting booth were depressing
I went to vote in the primaries today. The presidential candidates were listing first. I was greeted with these names: Romney Gingrich Santorum Paul Romney would be the most acceptable of these candidates, as he’s a social moderate. (His actions are more important than his statements during the primary.) I am uncomfortable with the way his church involves itself in the political...
Reminder to My Fellow Pennsylvanians
Primaries are today. Go vote.

This title is not supposed to be taken seriously, and I think I should have done a major rewrite on this particular story.

This was about to be put into the “Lara really should have had more sleep” category.
Sherlock Series 2 Coming to PBS →
lizziegoneastray replied to your post: So, Homophobic Aces Got Shut Down… (An offer I’m Not Sure I Should Be Making.) … in NO OTHER instance of bigotry would this offer be made. It was made because of my personal beliefs, not because I liked their site.
To All the Well-Meaning in People in my Real Life...
Please stop. Also, please stop assuming when you hear my stories that I was taking it before. I’m looking for different ways to deal with the problem, particularly ones that don’t have the potential for abuse or addiction.
So, Homophobic Aces Got Shut Down... (An offer I'm...
I neither blocked her nor reported her, although I was clamoring for her to go away just as much as everyone else. This leads me with a minor ethical problem. (Fortunately, it will not cost me any sleep.) I think Homophobic Aces was incredibly offensive, but I acknowledge her right to free speech. (She also has some rights to freedom of the press, which does apply to blogs. However, this freedom...
C's Blog: CW: Brief mention of suicide →
Can people please stop giving me credit for the kids calling in with Internalized homophobia statement? I am the original poster. I’m pretty sure that in this case, I am not the one who made it. I believe the statement originated with Galesofnovember or Partysoft. If you wait long enough, I’m sure I’ll put my foot in my mouth again. You’ll have a genuine quote to take...
I thought I was already following Project Queer and that they were following me.
Asexual Men Are Weak →
Finally, I have an excuse to get out of heavy lifting. I always hated this stereotype of men. In fact, I hate it almost as much as I hate heavy lifting. On a more serious note, if anyone can read the source and figure out what the hell he’s talking about, please let me know if I’m completely off here.
First Realizations of Asexuality →
British spelling removed.
Audio and Video Ability
At one time, the site had the ability to let authors upload audio and video content. The ability got lost during successive Joomla upgrades. The extension that enabled this has recently put out content that will work with Joomla 2.5. This means that video content coming from our authors will be coming soon. It also means that if you have video content of news or event, you can submit it to us...
Asexual News New Poll (TW -Maybe, Not Sure.)
In our most recent poll we ask if you are an Asexual or if you knew an Asexual who needed the services of a suicide prevention hotline. I’m not entirely thrilled with the wording on this one, and understand if you want to take issue with it. By the way, if you have ideas for polls you would like to see, please use my inbox or submit a poll idea to me.
greenchestnuts: I sent them a quick email tonight to thank them for adding asexuality to their training materials. Does anyone know who spearheaded this on the ace side? It would be nice to thank them too. David Jay and Sara Beth Brooks

The problem is, I can’t tell if this is news from my standpoint. I do not think it is, but it is a very interesting paper.

yourserenehighness: 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.

This could be more proof that I just need to learn to let things go.
I Really Need to Have a Talk With My Ad Provider
http://www.traditionalvalues.us/SNDAbannerpetition1.aspx?pid=002a&gclid=CPfF0Ki-xq8CFUPf4AodG0OVbQ ^ I found the above link on the site. I don’t know if it’s a problem with their filler software or that they misunderstand what Asexuals are and what Asexuals are about. I personally am not in favor of any sex acts being taught in Elementary school, but there are many people who...
By The Way...
My real life is hectic and still in chaos. (My anxiety issues aren’t making thins better by the way), but if you have a news story, a submission or an idea that I can reasonably implement, feel free to use my ask box. I don’t like putting out this information consistently, but it may be necessary to remind people you can submit tips to me. I can’t always use them, but I do...
This was taken from my cell phone, so I’m not sure why Facebook uploaded it sideways. This was a Day of Silence Vigil hosted in the town I currently live in outside of an adjunct campus of a community college.
Altered Gamer: Warning
I have learned about a site called Altered Gamer. It is owned by a company I used to write for. At the end of last year, it said all the writers would no longer receive DRPM on their content. I requested they return my content to me because they broke their end of the contract, but it really wasn’t worth pursuing, as I assumed the company was about to go bankrupt anyway. Now, they have the...
I Really Thought The Stories About These Warnings...
But on a bottle of generic ambien that the doctor thinks will help stop night movements, I found these warnings “May cause drowsiness” “Use care when operating heavy machinery.” Okay, maybe the first one is necessary for legal reasons, but regarding the second, are people really that stupid?
