Do you ever feel pressure to connect everything to asexuality?
For example, suppose someone is ace and gay and wants to talk about gay issues. Does this just naturally lead to a discussion of ace/gay intersections? Or does he feel forced to talk about intersectionality in order to participate in the ace community? Or does he just comfortably talk about gay issues without relating it to asexuality at all?
I own another blog, and over there I’m entirely happy to talk about issues that have no intersection with asexuality to speak of (e.g. math). Asexuality comes up anyway, because it’s a huge influence on how I think about identity and personal experiences.
However, on The Asexual Agenda, I feel more required to relate everything to asexuality, because that’s kind of the point? Hmm… I wonder if I could get away with giving you all a math lesson if I named all the variables after romantic orientations.
