I’ve been looking back at some of the things I’ve posted on this blog about asexuality over the last week, and I’ve realised that there’s actually a lot more there than I thought there was. Which feels pretty good, to be honest, because over the past year I’ve not exactly felt the most confident in my asexuality-writing endeavours. This is possibly a side-effect of being an Honours student, and spending every bit of my reading and writing energy on my thesis. And probably some other things as well.
But, the thesis is now done and dusted, and seeing as I’m trying to tidy up the blog a bit, I thought I’d make a masterlist of all the things I’ve written over the past four years.

One of the things that interests me about (a)sexual identity and sexual orientation is the models we use to talk about and conceptualise them. I’ve seen two main ways of doing this in the queer community, which have then been transferred over into the ace community as well. First, there’s the ‘born this way’ idea, … More Fixed and Fluid Sexual Identities (from an ace perspective)
I wrote this post yesterday while sitting at the airport in Sydney, after having spent the week at Queer Collaborations. That is largely why I haven’t posted anything in a while, since I shared the abstract for the workshop I was giving. I learned a lot of very useful things and met some fascinating people, … More Six Things I Learnt at Queer Collaborations
