Linkspam: July 27th, 2012

Every Friday, we will share links to news, blogs, and anything else we find interesting.  We can’t catch everything, so you are invited to self-promote in the comments!

Nat Titman, who played a very important role in the history of the asexual community, gave a talk at the Worldpride Asexual Conference.  Check it out.

New blogs spotted!  Take a look and say hi!
The Effanineffable Theatre
The Asexual Introvert

In Jesse Bering’s new book, he had an essay on asexuality, which was excerpted on The Advocate.  It seems to be identical to an article on his psychology blog from 2009.

Asexual Awareness Week has a cool new site design (I’m in the banner!).

If you want something to read, someone suggested this paper on Victorian relationships between women that blurred the line between romance and friendship.  (Suggested pages: p.8, p.13-14 and p.27-29)

    The link to the paper on Victorian female friendships is broken. It looks like the URL that was entered when composing the post is missing the “http://” at the beginning. The paper can be accessed here.

    The topic of romantic or passionate friendships is one that interests me and there are a number of papers out there about it. One that I recently excerpted some quotes from on my blog is Are We Dating? An Exploratory Study of Nonsexual, Passionate Friendships Between Women.

    Some other resources I’ve come across include Passionate Friendships Among Adolescent Sexual Minority Women, Having A Girlfriend Without Knowing It: Intimate Friendships Among Adolescent Sexual Minority Women, Boston Marriages: Romantic but Asexual Relationships Among Contemporary Lesbians (the “asexual” in the title is used in the sense of “non-sexual”; the book was published in 1993), and for a historical perspective Surpassing the Love of Men: Romantic Friendship and Love Between Women from the Renaissance to the Present.

    Dudes, thanks for the signal boost! I didn’t even realize you’d done it until I checked my stats and saw the explosion. I gotta watch my neighbor-blogs more closely. Thanks again!
