Carnival of Aces: Religion (or atheism) and Asexuality

Something Queer to Read was the host of the Carnival of Aces for October, but they’ve been having issues posting on WordPress.  We will host the link roundup here, at least temporarily.


October’s Carnival of Aces was hosted on my blog. I received quite a
few submissions about the month’s theme, Religion (or atheism) and
Asexuality, which I encourage you to read (and listen too)!

The notes which do not fit wrote about Judaism and how it’s a religion
that expects you to have children, as well as their experiences with
this subject.

LM made a video in which they talked about asexuality and
Christianity, as well as the call to singleness.

elainexe expresses their difficulty in finding someone to marry
within the Muslim community, having in mind their asexuality.

Siggy discussed the atheist feminism and anti-feminism movements in
relation to asexuality.

Fox talks about being a Jew and non-religious and links
it to being assailable as an asexual.

In Thoughts; Not Breaths also wrote about Judaism, but in this case about a
past experience being part of the Jew community and asexual one, and
the lack of representation she found of similar situations.

Isaac wrote about their experiences with asexuality, marriage and the
Christian community.

Laura (ace-muslim) wrote about creating an asexual jurisprudence in
Islam for this month’s Carnival, but she has also made many posts
before on Islam and asexuality.

Constance B. participated for the first time in a Carnival of Aces and
posted about being asexual and a Lutheran.

I’ve also got one anonymous participation that I posted on my blog, in
which the author talks about how they feel being asexual and

Thanks to all who participated, and I hope you consider submitting a
piece for November’s theme too.


Siggy here again.  The next Carnival of Aces is being hosted by Beyond the Rainbow, with the theme “Expectations in Friendships/Relationships”.  Consider submitting something before the end of November.

Lastly, I know that the Carnival of Aces for September (“Asexuals, Allies, and Advocacy”) hasn’t been posted yet.  I thought it would eventually appear, since I still had contact with the host, but I’ve since lost contact.  If you know of anything that was submitted to the carnival that month, please e-mail us or leave a comment, and I’ll collect the links.

    These are all so great. I’d read most already but I’d missed a few so I’m gonna check them out now. Also, The only “Asexuals, Allies, and Advocacy” posts that I know of are all of the ones that the host of that carnival reblogged, including mine. The host of the September Carnvial seemed to be reblogging and commenting on every tumblr submission for a period of time.

    Hey, in-thoughts-not-breaths here. Could you possibly take my name off my post? I try to keep my name out of my blog, and a lot of my family members don’t know about aceness.
