Linkspam: November 6th, 2020

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

Angela Chen writes about Emily Nagoski’s 2011 framework of consent that has been modified and found useful by sex-indifferent aces.

Emily Cole writes about two types of ace-baiting on TV shows.

News & Outreach

Director Gharima Kaul’s Desire? is a documentary about the “issues and complexities of what it is to be an asexual in India.”

Brandon Sanderson announces a character in the upcoming Nov. 17th release Rhythm of War (The Stormlight Archive #4) will be revealed to be “asexual, and currently heteroromantic.” Sanderson discusses the decision here (spoilers).

The character Caduceus Clay on Dungeons and Dragons webseries “Critical Role” has long been implied (and hoped to be) asexual and probably aromantic. There was a soft confirmation of the asexuality in the show with a follow up twitter confirmation by the actor. Dani Gee made a video compilation of Clay’s ace moments. (Trigger warning: sex jokes / flirtation)
