Could my followers please take a couple of minutes of your time to sign this

Political leaders in St. Petersburg are about to vote on law that will make it illegal for any person to write a book, publish an article or speak in public about being gay, lesbian or transgender. The ruling party led by President Medvedev and Prime Minister Putin could make millions of people invisible with the stroke of a pen.

Thankyou all.

"You just need to get laid."

Said to me, an asexual woman, when I voiced frustration. Made me feel devalued and ridiculous. (via microaggressions)

Just a happy bit I want to share with my asexy community, in case some of you didn’t know….

outlawroad:

The Sexual Orientation Non-Discrimination Act of New York State lists asexuality as a protected orientation. It actually went into effect in January 2003; I don’t know if asexuality was included from the start but is now!

SONDA prohibits discrimination on the basis of actual or perceived sexual orientation in various areas, including:

  • In employment;
  • In the admission to and use of places of public accommodation, resort, or amusement;
  • In the admission to and use of educational institutions;
  • In publicly assisted housing;
  • In private housing accommodations and commercial space; and
  • In relation to credit.

Seeing as how NY is one of the most progressive states in the union, I’m not surprised they’re the first to make such an inclusion of us.

(Glad I go to school here!)

#asexuality #asexual #new york #visibility #sexuality #new york you're doin' it right 

Possibly the best advice I’ve ever read in regards to asexuality, sex and compromise.

I’m Asexual and currently engaged in a romantic relationship with a woman. She really wants to have sex, I’m not really into it. We’ve done other things I really like, like making out and heaving petting. How do I tell her that I don’t want to sleep with her without making her feel inferior, undesirable and bad about herself? I’m scared to hurt her. Should I just compromise and sleep with her?

Heather Corinna replies:

Based on everything I know and have learned working in sex and relationships for many years, people don’t tend to have or sustain healthy relationships when they do big things for or with partners they don’t also want to do and feel good about themselves.

Taking out the garbage, doing the dishes, giving someone a ride or watching a certain movie when you don’t want to or would rather be doing something else is one thing. Creating babies, converting to a given religion, making legal agreements, moving in together or having sex when you don’t want to do those things are all something else entirely.

Asexual News’s Daily Roundup — September 23, 2011

Before we begin today, we must thank Morethanx who did some journalism of her own and found out a UK law passed several years ago does not include protections for Asexuals.

The UK Law in Question

http://asexualnews.com/index.php/cake-recipes/588-asexuals-not-protected-by-uk-anti-discrimination-law

New York Feels Differently

A New York law, passed before Asexual News was founded went into effect recently. Through well-placed cake bribes given to politicians by Asexual activists, SONDA does include Asexuals.

Today is Sexual Freedom Day

It’s also international bisexuality day.  Let’s remember our bisexual allies today to. They may be participate in today’s celebrations by doing the one thing Asexuals most likely aren’t. (Then again, some Asexuals may be getting busy.)

How Can an Asexual Have a Sex Drive?

This question sounds insulting and offensive. This article wasn’t put up for Asexuals though. It’s put up for the people who are coming to our site looking for this information. As always, the comment feature is there for those who want to add more.
