“Hey, my partner is a film stufent, and was wondering if anyone had a list of movies with positive ace representation (or any ace representation)?”
“Hey there everyone! I have the awesome to write an essay on Asexuality for my English class (I’m so psyched about writing this!!). It’s a compare and contrast essay, and the topic I want to discuss in this essay is the debate on the inclusion of Aces within the LGBT community. I need some good articles to put into the essay, with one being against the idea that we belong within the community (though I’m siding with the idea that we do belong, I need to have one paragraph looking into the other side’s argument as well). I am using an article or two from the Huffington Post’s website where they have 6 parts talking about Aces, but I need other articles. Can any of you direct me to some? I’d greatly appreciate it”
“Hey! I had something really cool happen and I thought you would appreciate it. So I just transfered to a new college and I joined an accappella group to try and make friends. Everyone seems cool and a couple of weeks ago they held a party for the group to welcome the newbies. I’m not too involved with ace pride stuff personally (like I don’t own anything ace related and I’m just not at a fantastic place with myself regarding my asexuality) but I am aware of a lot of it, so when I saw one of the veteran members of my accappella group wearing a black ring I was like hmm maybe that could mean shes ace but probably not idk. So at this party I went up to her and complimented her ring and she was like “oh thanks it’s my asexuality ring” and I was like OH MY GOD ME TOO and she was like NO WAY. It made me happy because she has a girlfriend and they’re awesome together and recently i’ve been down in the dumps because I think that because i’m ace I can never truly have a relationship but seeing them makes me happy. Idk this was just the first time I really met another asexual person so it was cool.”
“I just wanted to share an article about asexuality that appeared in my university student newspaper today! It’s so lovely to finally see some coverage – from an ace person at that. It also has a nice wholesome message about ace relationships that is incredibly important.
Sending love to all my fellow aces!
“Howdy, I’m an asexual medical student who has worked on educating medical students and other healthcare professionals about LGBT health. I want to create a PowerPoint which educates healthcare professionals on health for people on the Asexual/Aromantic spectrum. My question to you folk is what do you want your healthcare professionals to know about asexual health? I’ll condense the responses and use them in the PowerPoint. And when I’m done with it I’ll figure out a way to share it to you all. Thank you!”
“Hi. I’m writing an article for my university paper on the subject of the importance of representation and and inclusion. Do you have any suggestions?”
So I’m doing a project for my alevel art. We have to promote a cause or raise awareness to something that means a lot to ourselves.
For me I wanted to look at the oppression and discrimination within the lgbt+ community.
I was hoping you guys could help me do some primary research and ask the follows of this page about exclusion inside the community. What people have said that may have been hurtful or oppressive.
But for this it’s vital that it’s exclusion made by other members of the lgbt+ community.
Experiences and quotes would be appreciated very much
I’m not just looking at the exclusion for asexuals either, but any sexuality in the community that had been disregarded by another.
I believe that we can’t be accepted by others if we can’t accept eachother
“wanted to share something with the group which i found funny at uni a couple weeks ago. I have a professor who lectures on sexual preference as part of his lecture course and one of his slides was looking at viewing times. So he asked us to look at these four images and think about which one we looked at the most. The images were two of conventionally attractive people, one of a baby polar bear and one of chocolate cake. I spent like 80% of the time looking at the cake, and didnt even notice the people until he started explaining the slide. I just wanted to share this because I feel like it makes top ten most ace things I have ever done, and it is really reassuring for me because I have an illness which supposedly affects libido and I was starting to worry if I would remain ace when I got on treatment (I know this is silly).
As a side note, my professor is awesome because both he and his core reading for his course accept and mention asexuality as something valid in the research. 🙂 Just felt like sharing”
