I was wondering, when should I check my e-mail to see if I got a gift card?

Hi Light02 -- It may take several weeks or possibly a month or two due to the required minimum number of participants I need before moving to the next step in my study. If you are one of the winners, the email will be clearly marked as such. Please let me know if you have additional questions. Have a great day!  Elisa

I think I'm an outlier, because I haven't ever, or very rarely, experienced most of the microaggressions listed.  My hypothesis is that the ace/aro spectrum actually runs pretty strong in my family.  Which is interesting.  I came out to my grandma (conservative grandmas often, I gather, being a source of stress for asexuals), and her reaction was basically "Yeah, I know what you mean.  So are you going to help me pick a restaurant or what?"

I've  gone through the survey, and quite frankly, some of the questions on the first section deserve neutral or N/A. I'm an atheist, so those questions about whether my religion or spirituality aren't exactly relevant.

 

Additionally, I'm not out in meatspace, so the questions about whether I've experienced microaggressions might give misleading answers. To be honest, I'm not sure what the last time I've actually seen or heard `asexual' in meatspace is (so I guess `having to fill out my sexual identity as `other' on a survey has happened once or twice, although that wasn't included in this set of questions IIRC).
