Linkspam: February 20th, 2015

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!

Everyday Feminism posted an article on demisexuality.

Coyote wrote more about grey areas, and pondered what it means to know that no is an option.

Cinderace wrote about sex-aversion and purity culture.

AVENes, the Spanish AVEN community, launched a newsletter called AVENIDA (also see mobile version).

Coyote collects some advice on how to deal with sexual activity and sex aversion in ace 101.

Wired ran an article on the asexual spectrum.

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.

    hi! I’m not sure what your policy is for this sort of thing, but the first offline ace group in the Netherlands has been organised (we have our own space, and regular meetings, woot woot!) with its first meeting in March. This is pretty huge for the Dutch ace community. I’m currently trying to reach as many Dutch people as possible, so they know that this group exists. Not everybody reads the Dutch AVEN forums, so there might be Dutch readers of your blog who are unaware.

    Here’s the original forum thread with all the info (in Dutch): http://asexuality.org/du/index.php?topic=4365.0
    Here’s a link to a (Dutch) blog post I made about it: https://aceintranslation.wordpress.com/2015/02/20/inloopcafe-voor-aseksuelen/

    Wow are those WIRED article comments a raging mess. . . . When I looked at the beginning of the week there were only like 7 comments. Now over 900 and almost all of them invalidating, with homophobia on the side.

    I don’t know if Wednesday night is too late for posting here, but if I can, I would ask you to link to my two most recent posts.
