What questions do you wish academics were asking ace people?
A few days ago I filled out an online survey about what it’s like to be asexual. Some of the questions surprised me and seemed really on point. Others were phrased in ways that didn’t sit well with me. I stared at the check boxes in frustration. None of them seemed quite right. When I got to the end of the survey I was shocked to find not a blank box that I could add extra comments in, but instead a thank you for participating. Close webpage. Survey complete. I felt inadvertently silenced by someone’s methodology. Then I wondered, what might it look like if ace people ourselves had more input on what research was being written about us? What questions would you want to be asked? Or would the research look like something else entirely?
