Everyday Feminism posted someone’s story about discovering their demisexuality this week: http://everydayfeminism.com/2015/02/let-them-eat-cake-on-being-demisexual/ In the comments on Facebook people were saying how the article helped them realize they were demisexual too, which I thought was awesome (although of course there were also people coming by just to invalidate demisexuality…). The article isn’t a perfect or universal representation of being demi of course since it’s just focused on one person’s experience, but I enjoyed it.
Thanks, shall drop it in next week’s linkspam.
The Varsity article was impressively in-depth for a 101 piece. I also really like the graphics they chose. No sad grey people!
