The a-spec survey

Recommended Posts

Ace-bay

Last year I opened a survey for anybody who is on the a-spectrum, the link was posted to tumblr and has recently been posted to Twitter too. The survey currently has ~2630 respondents, however I want to make sure it gets to as many people as possible, if you wish to take the survey then Here is the link. 

 

Since many respondents don’t seem to know this:

inclusionist = somebody who believes being a-spec makes you lgbtqia+

Exclusionist = somebody who disagrees with that and believes you must be trans or experience same sex attraction to be lgbtqia+

Unfamiliar with a lot of the terms used. Apart from that I'm certainly an inclsionist. Diversity makes a community stronger. Favorite animal? That shaggy, red drummer on the Muppet Show. EAT DRUM! NO! BEAT DRUM!!!

So I had to type heteroromantic into the "other" field. That's different.

Just completed the survey - was good fun!  I have no idea about the tumblr thing that's being referred to.  I've heard about this particular discussion and that's enough for me.

 

When I typed about the discrimination I've faced, with hindsight, over the past few years it's been pretty bad so it was nice to type this somewhere.  I am currently pondering writing about this experience in more depth as I think it may be helpful to the Asexual community in some small way. 

 

Anyway - enough!  I'm off to bed now!  -_-

I just wanted to say "thanks" for the last question. It's been a rough day and the levity was very welcome.

I think it would be great to hear about your experiences, our experiences are ignored and played down so much, I’m still often shocked at some of the stuff shared within the survey so I’m always open to hear more

Sorry I thought I’d added it, I’ll go check the survey again 

 

edit: I think I must have already seen your comment because I’ve already added it
