Lately people have been reminiscing on asexual history from 2011. That’s when the Tumblr community was just starting, and there was the infamous “asexual privilege” debacle, and all the associated arguments about whether aces can be queer. What were you doing in 2011?
Or, if you weren’t around ace communities in 2011, I’m also interested to know whether you’ve heard anything about it. Is that period of history now forgotten?
In 2011, I was involved in the off-Tumblr blogging community. I heard a lot about the Great Ace-Hate of 2011, but didn’t see much of it directly. My impression was that those trolls were just soooo stupid, and obviously had no experience with how asexuals and queer groups actually interact. If their arguments were any good, they would still be around instead of being associated with a particular year.
