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. I’m really glad the link to Sarah’s post at A Queer Calling (about why she doesn’t identify as asexual) was included in this linkspam. Not only is it a good post in itself and relevant to recent discussions about telling other people what labels they can or should use, but I really enjoyed looking through the rest of the blog. As a religious ace who considers herself to have made a free and fully-informed choice of celibacy, I found much to identify with in Sarah and Lindsey’s story. Many of the issues they deal with from others who don’t understand the idea of a celibate partnership are also very similar to the issues that aces may face in queerplatonic and other non-sexual relationships.

    If you are interested in religious perspectives on living a life of celibacy or in the challenges and benefits of having a celibate partnership, I recommend checking out Sarah’s post and the rest of the blog.
