Linkspam: July 11th, 2014

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!

The Ace Theist has started a series on nonsexual nonromantic relationships.

There’s a new academic article on asexuality: Making Sense in and of the Asexual Community: Navigating Relationships and Identities in a Context of Resistance.

Here’s a video of the World Pride panel on grey-asexuality and demisexuality.

The Bibliophibian reviewed The Invisible Orientation.

There’s a researcher looking for people who identify as asexual and queer in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Mark Carrigan posted an interview that an Italian magazine had with him.

The Varsity posted an article on the International Asexuality Conference.

Prismatic Entanglements (formerly Shades of Gray, recently rebranded) responds to all those people who ask her if they’re asexual.

Iris shares their experience speaking about asexuality and ethnicity at the International Asexuality Conference. (link broken) Their speech is also available.

About queenieofaces

QueenieOfAces is a graduate student in the U.S. studying Japanese religion. She is a queer asexual. She also blogs over at Concept Awesome and runs Resources for Ace Survivors. She is never quite sure what to write in these introduction things, but this one time she accidentally got a short story on asexuality published in an erotica magazine.

  1. The link from Iris about their experiences at the conference seems to be broken.

    Unfortunately, my “Making sense in and of the asexual community” article isn’t nearly as easy to read as other stuff I’ve written in the past. And also unfortunately, the copyright transfer agreement that I had to sign to get the paper published does *not* let me post the final version of the text online.

    However, anyone interested in reading my paper who doesn’t have access to it via a university library can read an earlier version of it on my website because I’m allowed to post that (you’ll be missing the part about asexuality-related homophobia and some other stuff):

    Click to access Chasin_Making.sense.of.asexual.community_JCASP.2014.pdf

    And, I *am* allowed to send a copy of the final text directly to anyone who requests it (for academic purposes of course). (My contact info is that pdf document.)

    No problem. This is my community too.
    People might like or dislike or have an other reaction to my words, but they should have a chance to read them if they want to. (I’m still working on making my writing easier to read…)

    Generally, I believe that people should be able to access stuff written about them/their communities. I wish more authors, academic institutions and publishers shared that value… but those institutions are set up in a way that discourages that.

      I really appreciate your philosophy of making your work available to everyone.

      Also, I very much enjoy what you’re writing. I find myself nodding while reading it for all the good points you make.
