Anonymous asked: What do you think of the Human Rights Campaign? They don't seem to have much material on asexuality.
I’m really sorry, but I don’t know much about it at all and so don’t feel comfortable forming an opinion on it. Even looking it up a bit, I can see their goals and such, but can’t really see the methods they go about achieving them. So while I might be able to appreciate their purpose, I don’t know if their methods of achieving their goals are problematic or not.
I’m not surprised at all at their lack of asexuality stuff, though. Besides the ongoing debate on whether asexuality falls under the queer umbrella or not, we still have yet to achieve basic visibility and are still having issues dealing with the acceptance of the validity of our orientation. (Also, since I don’t really know much about what that campaign does, I don’t know how asexuality would fit into it, either. For example, I wouldn’t know what sort of rights would be denied an asexual unless they weren’t heteroromantic as well, but those sort of issues would fall more under similar-gender relationship rights/discrimination than those related to asexuality itself.)
Apologies for the non-answer, I just don’t want to attempt to talk about something I’m not informed on. Sorry I can’t really give much of a discussion, this would have been an interesting topic, otherwise.
Do any of you guys have an opinion on this campaign and organization? (Please keep it civil.)
