Dan Savage on Asexuality:

(Since stuff on tumblr can be hard to track down later, I’m copying this over here too for reference)

Since I saw some questions about it recently, I thought I’d try to collect a set of links to all the places Dan Savage has talked about asexuality for future reference. If you see any missing, please let me know!

WARNING: Dan Savage is mostly known for being increcredibly prejudiced against asexuality, so…read/listen at your own risk. Triggers abound.

    I like Dan a lot, personally. His honest take on matters is refreshing, compared to the PC doubletalk that dominates most sexual minority discussions. I’d pick his advice over the AVEN PC police any day of the week.
