I don’t usually post my art here, but I wanted to design a pride thing in honor of ace awareness week, featuring my favorite ace symbols! ♠️👽🍰💜
The entire analogy was just fantastic and so, so accurate, and I wanted to make a comic for it, even if it’s very sketchy because my attention span is nil.
An adorable, helpful, and accurate little comic!
This is the best way to describe aro/aceness I’ve seen! Also, the cutest!
Writing a book on asexual, aromantic, and agender identity and trying to get it funded. If you help the project fund, aside from receiving a copy of the book, your name will also appear in the book. 📚 https://t.co/igDW1xAZih
Hey y’all, this book is hanging out at 46% funded. It needs to get to 60% by the end of the month, 80% by the end of November, and 100% by the end of the year. Please boost this for more visibility, and if you have the money to spare, maybe back the project as well.
We need more resources like this in the world, and bringing this book to life can help close the current gap. I’m not affiliated with this project at all – I would just really like to see it fully funded.
Less than a month, let’s do this!!
I got mine and so should you!
Hey, it’s Asexual Awareness Week! Guess what would be a perfect way to support the ace (and aro and agender) community? Backing resources like this book!
Support this project authored by ace of color, Xicanx artist, researcher, and founder of @asexualjournal, an independent platform publishing work by asexual, aromantic, and agender authors, Michael Paramo!
Until midnight tonight (Nov 17th) if you use OVER60 promotional code provided by Unbound, you also get 10% off your pledge.
Thank you to everyone who has shared and supported this book project.
it’s 70% funded now! 10 days to get to 80%!
Pls help fund! You can get the book and a pin and stuff for the different tiers (it’s at 71% currently)
Two friends of mine are writing a book on Aro/ace topics. They’ve already got a publishing company, but they need some help to cover printing costs. It’d be awesome if you could share the link around and donate if you’ve got some spare change (though this book will be in German)
I wanted to ask this blog because I know you’ve got some German mods.
Anyways, here’s the link
Thanks so much!
aphobe: lolll, you’re just shy
me: and you’re annoying but I don’t use that to diminish your sexuality??
Me: haha I’m asexual so I’d be immune to sirens. I would’ve made an awesome pirate.
Friend: actually sirens lured you with your greatest desire, it could be anything.
My siren: we’ve got ramen and netflix
Me: [launches myself into the ocean]
And, I guess, am I right to be wary of them talking about HSDD rather than FSAID?
I started seeing these Unblush ones a couple of months ago.
The comment is mine, and I have not gotten a response from them about it, although the page has commented on other comments.
I haven’t really looked into what Unblush is as a campaign though because I didn’t want to drive traffic any more than necessary.
Today I came across this one:
I got most of the scrolling fine print, but not all of it. It says:
“VYLEESI (bremelanotide injection) is a prescription medicine used to treat hypoactive (low) sexual desire disorder (HSDD) in certain premenopausal women. Vyleesi is not indicated to the enhancement of sexual performance.
Do not use Vyleesi if you have uncontrolled hypertension, know heart disease, or are taking oral naltrexone-contaning products intended to treat opioid or alcohol addiction. Women who can become pregnant should use effective birth control during treatment with Vyleesi.
VYLEESI can cause serious side effects including temporary increase in blood pressure and…
[I didn’t get the rest of that paragraph]
The most common side effects of Vyleesi include nausea, flushing, injection site reactions, headache, vomiting. These are not all of the possible side effects of Vyleesi; consult your healthcare professional for more information or visit Vyleesi.com for additional important safety information.”
Idk how this compares to addyi/flibanserin off the top of my head, but at the very least it’s another attempt to treat HSDD.
I clicked on fb’s ‘why am I seeing this ad’ feature and it said they were trying to advertise to women in the US in their mid 20s- mid 30s.
Anyways, my comment in the screenshot kind of sums up my feelings on this pretty well, I was just curious if anyone else had come across any of this? And thoughts?
(tagging a couple active/bigger blogs off the top of my head to hopefully drum up a bit of discussion?)
Story time! So this happened in high school during the end of the year when classes don’t do anything anymore and everyone’s just chilling, you know? So there’s this group of girls chatting away am I’m sitting on my own a few feet away when I heard something that changed my life.
“It’s a good thing Ed Sheeran can sing because he’s not very hot.”
My whole life I’d assumed that attractive-ness is a constantly changing thing that grows to include famous people. I thought that once someone becomes famous they become hot. But that wasn’t the case.
Attraction wasn’t this confusing, ever changing thing. It was something set in stone. And it was something I didn’t understand.
And that’s how I started to realize I was asexual.
I’m still taking a short break from the site to work on my sixth novel (and I’ve got a very busy schedule for the next few months). However, I’m still going to try posting the occasional signal boost.
A phenomenal visual artist, Beth, has reached out to ask for a signal boost for her fantastic graphic novel Lanterns of Arcadia. She’s currently running a Kickstarter to get chapters one and two printed as a single volume. Beth’s work is gorgeous and this is a truly fascinating book, one which I highly recommend.
Here’s what she says about the project:
“Lanterns of Arcadia is now live on Kickstarter!
www.lanternsofarcadia.com is a fantasy mystery in which a scientist and a dragon team up to stop demons from destroying a magical library.
The book will contain all of Chapters 1 + 2 as well as an exclusive epilogue (180 pages). I’m also offering art prints, signed books w/ a sketch, watercolor commissions, and a few cameo slots so you can get you or your character in future pages of the comic! Early Bird copies of the book are just $20, so pledge early to get in on the discounted rate.”
She has included some truly stunning artwork of the project:
I really want to see this project come to fruition. It is beautiful and a really stunning work by an amazing ace artist. Please, show Beth some love. Donate if you can and signal boost the heck out of this project.
