  • Ace Activism Opportunities: Health Care

    The world of “health care” is a huuuuuuuuuge opportunity for ace activism, so I’m just going to briefly touch on just a few of the areas that can be explored.

    • Develop workshops on providing ace competent care.  Train doctors on what asexuality is, how to approach potentially asexual patients, etc.
    • Get the DSM-5 fixed.  The move from the DSM-IV to DSM-5, with its explicit mention of asexuality in an an exception for FSIAD and MHSDD, was a huge step forward, but there are still problems.  The mention of asexuality is hiding in scare quotes in a footnote that doesn’t even show up in the Desk Reference.  The exception calls for people to be “self-identified as asexual”, which is hard to do if you’ve never heard that asexuality is A Thing™.  The criteria for FSIAD and MHSDD both require “clinically significant distress”, but there’s no allowance for that distress being caused by everyone constantly telling you that you’re broken for not wanting sex.  Then there’s a more fundamental question about whether or not these are actually “disorders” at all.  Ace activism was instrumental in getting the improvements in the DSM-5, so it’s time to be making noise about getting some changes in the next edition.
    • Explore various ways to suppress or eliminate various bodily functions and features that many aces could do without.  Look at techniques for skipping periods with birth control pills.  Are there ways to safely get rid of erections?  Can an unwanted libido be turned off?  What options exist for hysterectomies or castration?  Are they safe?  What’s the process for obtaining one?  Are there processes/procedures/regulations/restrictions that stand in the way and need to be changed?
    • Work to end the pervasive and incorrect idea that everyone wants sex, that everyone who is lacking in sex is miserable, and that the only path to happiness is through lots and lots of sex.  Throw out the blanket “fake it ’til you make it” style advice.  Throw out the failed anti-depressants and sunless tanners being relabeled as sex cure-alls.  Don’t try to fix what isn’t broken.
    • Explore issues involving single people and medical care.
    • Look at tests and procedures which may not be necessary for people who are not sexually active.  For instance, are pap smears worthwhile for people who’ve never had sex?  Should guidance around those sorts of things be changed?  Should there be more outreach to aces letting them know the risk and giving them guidance for refusing potentially unnecessary or unwanted procedures.
    • Fight against conversion therapy, in all its forms.

  • In honor of Ace-Spec awareness week, I’ll be sharing the definitions of different ace-spec terms.

    First up is Asexual. To be asexual, often shortened to ace, means that a person experiences little to no sexual attraction to people regardless of gender. This is not to be confused with abstinence (choosing not to partake in sexual activities) or being aromantic (experiencing little to no romantic attraction to people regardless of gender). Some ace people may still engage in such activities for pleasure or some other reason, but not all do because we all have different boundries with intimacy. People identifying with this label may be able to experience romantic attraction, adding a label to their romantic attraction as well (such as homoromantic ace, or biromantic ace), although some may not, using the label aromantic.

    The asexual flag is made up of 4 stripes of equal size- Black, grey, white, and purple. (Shown below) The black stripe represents asexuality, the grey stripe represents the ace-spectrum identities such as demisexual or greysexual, the white stripe represents allosexuals (people who do experience sexual attraction), and the purple stripe represents the unity of the asexual community.

  • being told that maybe you’ll feel sexual attraction if you meet the right person after telling your friend that you’re asexual really is worse than heartbreak.

  • He loved him more than a woman

    More than a mother, a parent

    More than anyone who’s ever existed

    But don’t you worry

    I’m the end, inspite of them

    Everyone thought the same:

    “They were such good friends”

  • happy asexual awareness week to all aspec people!

    as an asexual, i often feel like my sexuality doesn’t matter because of how little it is talked about in media. but i want all of you to know that your sexuality is valid! whether you’re fully ace, demisexual, grey-ace, an aromantic ace, a romantic ace, or another label, your identity matters, and nobody can tell you it doesn’t.

    you are just as important and essential to the lgbtq+ community as gay, lesbian, bi and trans people are!

    so be proud of yourself! its your week! fuckin own it!

  • It’s Ace Awareness Week, y’all!

    So yes, I am indeed asexual. For the longest time, I didn’t know what my orientation was because of the lack of interest, but then a thing called Tumblr came into my life and the rest is history. :)

    So, here’s a Wakko edit that was inspired from the Animaniacs fan Discord server!

    And a pride drawing to match!

    Happy Asexual Awareness Week!!! (October 25th-31st 2020)

    If anybody following me wasn’t aware, I’m aroace! My icon? An aroace flag! (With the Spade Pirates’ jolly roger on it cause I love the double meaning of it showcasing my intense love of Portgas D. Ace and the other Spades along with the ace of spades being an aroace symbol)

    So if there are any exclusionists or other assholes that hate aspecs or think we don’t belong in the lgbtqa community following me, unfollow or block me now cause you guys can get fucked!!!

    And to my fellow aspecs, you’re so valid and I love ya’ll!!! 💜
