psychewanders asked: Hi there, would you post a link to my research study? I'm exploring identity formation for self-identified asexuals of color. (Tumblr wouldn't let me add the link to this message!)
SURE! where can we find it? you can submit a post on the main page.
Hi, can you add me to the list of asexual tumblr people? I’m a Korean asexual. My blog is actually full of Supernatural and other fandoms, but I recently (really recently) started posting stuff about asexuality (I didn’t know anything about the asexual community till about a week ago or something). I’d really like to talk to other aces, and get familiar with the community.
megavelraptor asked: Hi there! I read that you were making a list of Tumblr asexuals. I don't blog much about it, but I am a Pakistani Muslim and asexual. c:
Not so much a list as I am just signal boosting folx. thank you :3
hey, you can add me to your list of asexual POC tumblrs. i don’t usually write about asexuality (sometimes) but you said you might make a separate list for people who *are* asexual that do tumble.
hope you’re well.
Hi my name is Crysty! I am a Christian BiAromantic African Americam/Jewish/Indian Asexual! I am looking for other Aces all around the world. I have my own blog if anyone else is interested in chatting, here it is… chozengirlblog.wordpress.com. Look forward t hearing from you!
tiloulou asked: hi uh i realise this is really awkward but im having some trouble identifying myself as asexual or sexual or anything really. I realise that I'm a bit young to really decide but I'm just confused and I'd like a bit of insight. I've had crushes and other things but when everyone brings up children or sex I just find it uninteresting. Not like "Oh, gross eew" immature type thing, but just complete disinterest. Also the thought of actually having sex just doesn't appeal to me? I don't know u-u;
Also I dont really understand my sexuality at all, maybe because I’m too young and I seem ‘cold’ and ‘heartless’ because I really just don’t find the desire. Just a bit of explaination about being asexual could help to see if I could properly identify would be nice uwu Thanks!
Asexuality is typically defined as not having an interest, or the majority of the time not having an interest, in sexual activity. I’m sure a lot of other people who follow this blog would vary in how they define it themselves. And you aren’t too young to realize that you might be asexual! If you don’t find sex something you want to do, even if that time frame is ‘ever’, that’s completely legitimate. Anyone who would say “oh you don’t understand yourself” is bullshitting you and putting you down.
i hope that’s helpful!
A week or so ago I met a nice Tumblr person who was asexual, yet had no knowledge of Tumblr’s asexual community. The reply I got to an asexual post was along the lines of “I’m not alone”.
I’m sure we can all relate to that, so I’ve decided I’d like to start a comprehensive list to add to what I’ve already got going here; but for all the asexual blogs on Tumblr.
I’m actually thinking two lists- one for blogs specifically about asexuality, and another list of asexual Tumblr users. I can pull some things from the regular posters in the tags, but I’d love to be able to get everybody.
So please reply to or reblog this post with a note saying whether you’re asexual or your blog is about it (or both! If you’ve got more than one account, please also include!); or drop me a message or submission.
Let’s make sure we know where to find each other.
Listing of everyone and every blog I have so far here.
sothesoulcontinues asked: Hi there! I'm an ace/aro Asian, and it had crossed my mind that the asexual community seemed to be lacking representation from people of color. I'm terribly glad to have found this blog and to know that an ace community consisting of people of color exists. :3
YAAAAAAAAY! sorry for not being the bestest mod :C One gal operations are tough.
I don’t know how many roleplay, but I do it a lot, and it’s frustrating for me, because I like to do certain things when I roleplay, but people always take them very sexually, which I usually do not mean.
And as if that weren’t bad enough, I roleplay Homestuck, where the main characters are “Word of God” aracial, but everyone, including the creator, thinks of them as being white.
So when I roleplay my favorite characters, I have to explain that they are POC AND that there are certain things I never want to roleplay, because I’m uncomfortable with them.
I use roleplay to explore certain identities and gender identity expressions, and it just gets depressing that the more I try to express myself through roleplay, learn about myself through roleplay, the more resistance I encounter.
