On Fridays, 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 explained why they don’t use “aspec”.  Later, Coyote explained a few ace interpretations of love songs.

Raavenb2619 discusses the nuances, limits, and potential of repulsed, indifferent, and favorable terminology.

Community Activity

    Unfortunately, it’s Tumblr, and Tumblr is a shitty “blog” platform which doesn’t even allow commenting.
    Any blog worthy of that name must have: a) comments section, b) an archive. Which is why I’m also, for example, very much against using Facebook as a blogging platform.

      Agree that this is frustrating. You’re welcome to use this space for any comments, and I can notify raavenb2619 if you like.
