Asexual dating in seattle
Ace Inclusion Guide For High Schools, which is a guide for high school staff on how to be more inclusive of asexual people. There was a big hubbub about the latest season of Bo Jack Horseman. Reaction from ace-land has been largely positive as the portrayal is seen as positive and accurate.
This is probably in large part due to the assistance of members of Ace LA, who worked with show staff to make sure it was handled correctly.
There was a recommendation that you not only mark yourself as Asexual in OKCupid, but that you also cover the subject several times in your profile.
Talk about what it means to you, lay out where some of your boundaries lie.
After the conference, I found two counselors in the Seattle area who mention working with ace patients on their websites.
One sounded like they might have a decent understanding of asexuality, while the other sounded like they were more interested in prescribing you a pill that is likely to cause spontaneous loss of consciousness.
My notes from the Unconference are here: And some thoughts on the parade are here: I’ve covered ace dating conversations in previous posts, and a lot of what was covered today was similar to what was mentioned in the past.
They were both valuable experiences and things we should look at doing here at some point. People then break off into groups to have 45 minutes to an hour of discussion on the topic, and people are free to switch between them, if they like. I’ll pay the bills, but I’ll need as many of you as possible to show up and march.
Resources for Ace Survivors has an info sheet you can print out and bring into your visit.
The lack of awareness of asexuality in the medical profession was a topic that came up at the unconference.
It may be difficult to know ahead of time how they’ll react.
But know this: You can demand that they believe you and respect you, and if they don’t, you may want to consider finding a doctor who will, if that’s possible.
