Resources On Asexuality

Thanks to Wikimedia user bristrek87 for this image that symbolizes asexuality.

We’ve touched on asexuality here at MSP before; Dr. Debby has linked to a Salon article on the topic, and I’ve linked to a blog post explaining some of the basics. Now, however, there’s even more stir in the media, thanks to a recent episode of House, MD that featured asexuality… in an overly medicalized, stigmatizing way.

To combat negative stereotypes of asexuality, check out this Feministe post on where asexuality and sex-positive feminism can, and should, overlap. It’s an interesting topic, and one that I think people should educate themselves on, regardless of their orientation.
