A recent post by godlessace that linked to a discussion about changes over time in queer and feminist communities, and how those changes are perceived, has kicked of a bit of a parallel discussion about how the asexual community has changed over time. It’s been getting a lot of cross-discussion, so we thought having a more linear discussion site mightbe useful.
The conversation on tumblr can be a bit hard to follow, so here are links to some of the tumblr replies so far:
1. godlessace, writingfromfactorx, and nextstepcake discuss whether changes move faster in online and/or asexual activist circles.
2. nextstepcake and writingfromfactorx discuss some of the thematic changes we’ve seen in asexual communities.
(There are also some sem-tangential but inspired by this conversations going on here.)
So, readers: what changes have you seen over the course of your time in asexual communities? Do you think these changes move faster or slower than in other communities you’ve been in?
