The Outline

Pretty neat article

 

Quote

In writing about asexual history, Kerschenbaum and other bloggers are doing the work that much of academia has not. Even as queer history continues to seep into the mainstream, asexuality — despite also falling under the “queer” umbrella — is continually excluded from academic discourse. Only a handful of academics actively study the topic of asexuality, and there is not a single historian who devotes their work to tracing the development of asexuality.

Yes!! I saw that article this morning. Not only is this kind of historical examination important for dismissing ideas of aspecs as ‘invented’ identities, it’s also really dang interesting. 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
