Recommended Reading

It's still Asexual Awareness Week! And I just saw something really interesting on Tumblr that I think everyone should read. A lot of movements, even if they're started by people of color, end up being framed around whiteness. We forget that people of color have different experiences, we forget to think of how race issues intersect with other issues. Turns out a lot of people of color don't feel comfortable identifying as asexual and/or feel excluded from the asexual community.

A Tumblr account called What makes you acey? wrote up an excellent extensive post on the issue, pulling insights from multiple people of color from different cultures. We should all read it.
