Welcome to this Tuesday’s Question of the Week! Feel free to leave your two cents’ worth and get some discussion happening.
Last week I did an interview about asexual relationships for a story on asexual relationships and how asexual people find companionship. The writer doing the story said that they were really interested in going beyond Asexuality 101 topics in the mainstream media, because that had already been done frequently.
Do you think there is enough 101-type knowledge in the mainstream? Is it time for the media to move from ‘asexuality exists!’ to ask some broader questions (or conversely, more specific ones)? Or is asexuality still too invisible?
Personally, I think there should be both – I don’t think that we’re quite at the point yet where asexuality is common knowledge. But I’d also like to see media stories tackling more diverse and detailed aspects of asexuality, as well as some of its intersections.
