Linkspam: May 15th, 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!

A Dutch newspaper ran an article on asexuality.

Sennkestra wrote a guide for people wanting to get ace events on Wikipedia.

The SF UnConference and Pride Parade Contingent will be July 27-28 this year.

Siggy put together a bunch of feedly subscriptions for ace vlogs, webcomics, tumblrs, and blogs.

Laura wrote about being homoplatonic and experiencing emotional attraction.

rotten-zucchinis argued that queerplatonic relationships are not “romance lite.”

Elizabeth wrote about Ace Day and credibility.

There’s going to be a Dutch ace meetup on May 30.

Coyote wrote about ir experiences with depression.

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.

    There’s a new e-book out of essays about representation in sci-fi and fantasy, which, among other things, talks about the portrayal of asexuality. It looks pretty cool. More info here:

      Gah! Sorry about the giant picture thing. I had no idea that would happen.

    • queenieofaces says:

      Thanks! I’ll drop it in next week’s linkspam!

      (And, uh, I’ve never seen it do that with the giant picture before…)

      • Elizabeth says:

        I think it’s a new feature in WP that when you just drop a link to tumblr on its own line it will automatically import the post. I saw it do that on some RFAS test pages too. I didn’t know it worked with comments, though!

        • queenieofaces says:

          That’s…kind of weird. Can we turn it off somehow?

          • Elizabeth says:

            Not that I know of, but I’ll check when I get back. It’s weird because I don’t think it was ever announced? To avoid it, we can make sure to put all the links in html tags. Maybe Siggy or Sciatrix can look around in the settings here to see if it can be turned off.

          • Siggy says:

            It looks like there used to be an option to turn it off but wp decided that no one ever needs that option, and all solutions involve self-hosting. So for now the solution is not pasting urls by themselves.

          • Sciatrix says:

            *rubs forehead* That is, incidentally, what’s going on with the autoposted little images I’m seeing on our Tumblr crossposts, as far as I can tell. Oh WordPress, I loved you because you were supposed to be the CUSTOMIZABLE blog host…

    I thought you might want to include this in the next linkspam–the web series The March Family Letters (based on Little Women) has a canonically ace character, and her asexuality comes up a little in this episode: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zZTh6rhSXd0&list=PL_ePOdU-b3xf69PZcEbgxlviLrBhJ_cpp&index=38 (I hope pasting the link doesn’t do anything weird! I’m not up on my html…)
