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.

    That Everyday Feminism’s idea about how they don’t like the “spectrum” terminology and prefer “Galaxies” is actually pretty cool. 😉 I like that.

    And harris-hijiri’s post is such an important read!!

  2. To Queenie
    Arigatou!!

    To luvtheheaven
    Thanks 🙂 I expect other ace blogger’s posts of wonderful visions.

    I’m collecting (http://goo.gl/forms/Ddrwawb6Hz) fanfiction for a database (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1lmWRRwxc2eIz3IyHIuh-7wyk-NCPlZGLzN2SpU_I-kc/edit?usp=sharing) of fanfics with ace and/or aro characters and/or non-sexual or non-romantic relationships.

    My grandmother just sent me a Facebook message with a link to this NY Times article on asexual people: http://www.nytimes.com/2015/07/05/fashion/asexual-and-happy.html?smid=fb-nytimes&smtyp=cur&_r=0 Posted July 2nd, so yesterday, I guess. 😉 It’s written from the perspective of an asexual person, and the bottom of the article also mentions: “A version of this article appears in print on July 5, 2015, on page ST5 of the National edition with the headline: Falling Into Bed and Holding Hands.” It’s a good article for next week’s linkspam.
