I’ve finally built up a nice series of essays on writing asexuality and asexual characters in fiction. Here they are, all together in one place. They’re intended to be useful for asexual and non-asexual writers alike. They are also meant to be inclusive of gray-asexual and demisexual characters, although my knowledge is limited there.

These essays assume you already have a basic knowledge of what asexuality means: a general lack of sexual attraction to other people. This is not Asexuality 101; for that, check out the links on my resources page.

Other potentially relevant topics

This post may be updated in the future as I write more stuff on this subject; I’ll link to it from my blog’s homepage so it’s easy to find.

The Trailer Arrives This Thursday.  #FiftyShades

omg this is like those effing tumblr doms gifs this is too much i’m dying

@pervocracy

This is, in about five seconds, such a perfect illustration of the FSoG phenomenon.

Because out of context, that image of his hand sliding up her skirt under the table seems hot.  Seems like they’re doing some sexy secret play together.

In context, this happens while they’re having dinner with his parents. She pushes his hand away, and he glares furiously at her.  After dinner, he drags her out to the backyard to yell at her for daring to say no to him.  He threatens to hit her, then demands she have intentionally unpleasant sex with him.

Suddenly the “ooh, hand up the skirt” gif isn’t as much fun anymore.

What Cliff said.

(Ugh I know it’s about making money but it still kinda upsets me that this movie is a thing.)

does anyone even need to say anything more about israel?

You bet your sweet ass if China or Iran was doing this reporters would be able to find the word “sterilization,” which is conspicuously absent here.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Again. Israel!

:(

If you defend Israel, I don’t need to know you.

FORCED STERILIZATION IS NOT OKAY. Please signal boost so that people realize that forced sterilization wasn’t just something that happened in the US in the ’70s, but that it’s still going on now and it’s eugenics.

Here’s an article detailing the issue further

awww look…

If you are being hurt by a person, they’re likely trying to convince you that no one else could possibly understand your relationship.

If you’re being hurt by your family, they’re likely trying to convince you that no one else could possibly understand your family.

If you are being hurt by a community, they’re likely trying to convince you that no one from outside the community can possibly understand.

It’s not true. You are not alone. There are others outside your relationship, family, and community, who can relate to what you’re going through and who can help.

Some aspects of your relationship, family, or community are unique. Some of them are probably unusual, positive, and hard for outsiders to understand. But that is not the barrier that those who are hurting you want you to think it is. It is not insurmountable.

People do not have to understand absolutely everything in order to relate to your experiences in important ways.

You can make connections with others, and a lot of things you have experienced will be very, very similar. Some aspects of abuse are universal. Others are very common. (One very common aspect of abuse is that there is often something about the relationship that is positive, unusual, and secret or hard to describe.). 

The people who you can relate to may be very different from you in a lot of ways. They may be a different age, ethnicity, religion, race, gender, or culture than you. Maybe they are disabled and you aren’t. Maybe their disability is different, or more severe, than yours. Maybe the particular horrors they faced took a different shape. That matters, but it’s not the only thing that matters.

It is ok to relate to the experiences of people who are very different from you. It is not appropriation. (It is not ok to pretend that your experiences are identical; but it’s completely possible to relate without doing that.) Don’t let anyone tell you to only listen to people who are just like you. We all need each other.

People may be trying to isolate you, but you are not alone. Other people can and do understand and care about the ways in which you are getting hurt.
