While I chose the topic for this month’s Carnival of Aces some time ago, I suppose it ended up being rather timely. I’m thinking of course about the recent representation of ‘asexuality’ on House that so many of us have blogged about. Sciatrix has a roundup of posts on that topic here, which I’m including both because of its relevance and because a few of the submissions for this month can be found there.
Here are the other submissions.
Ace Amoeba writes about “dropping the A Bomb” on people and what is helpful to let them know that one is not simply The Asexual.
Elizabeth writes about stereotypes of asexuals and how they ought to be dealt with for a proper representation of asexuality in the media.
Heorrenda (that being me) writes about the fear of showing any weakness when presenting oneself as an asexual, and what to do about it.
Pip writes about the nebulousness of the asexual community and the implications of this concerning any shared objectives.
Sciatrix writes about why it can be much easier to talk on a panel about asexuality than it can be to talk to friends about it.
Thanks to everyone who submitted! If you’re a bit late and would still like to send something then go right ahead. You can just post it as a comment below or email it to me, and I’ll include it in the list above.
As for next month’s carnival, I’m afraid all I can do right now is refer you to the masterpost, where you can see that we still need someone to volunteer to host the next one!
EDIT: Elizabeth will now be hosting the carnival for next month, on the topic of sexual exploration.
