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!

Ace Blogging

Coyote offered some guidelines on how to support people who aren’t willing to label their experiences as sexual violence.

Ace Community Activity

News & Outreach

There’s a petition to include asexuality in the UK 2021 Census.  (As a note, the UK Census is where Bogaert originally got the 1% statistic from.)

The Daily Beast published an article asserting there’s nothing wrong with being asexual.

    That can’t be right. Bogaert’s data was from NATSAL, not the census.

  2. Nowhere Girl says:

    I don’t like the idea of a sexual orientation question in the census at all. That’s too invasive. Some people would feel offended when asked about such topics no matter what their actual orientation is.
