I'm a 39 year old woman and live in the U.S. I'm asexual and celibate and a white convert to Islam. This blog is a place for me to share information of interest on asexuality, LGBTQ issues, queer Muslim topics, feminism, and other subjects I think are worthwhile.
My regret is made keen by the convergences between bisexual and asexual erasure, most notably the refusal by both self-identified straights and self-identified gays to acknowledge either category. Thus asexuals, like bisexuals, are prone to being accused of duplicity or false consciousness, or, more specifically, of being closeted gays. See Jeffrey S. Nevid, Lois Fichner-Rathus & Spencer A. Rathus, Human Sexuality In A World Of Diversity 302 (1995) (describing asexuals as a subset of homosexuals). See generally Alan P. Bell & Martin S. Weinberg, Homosexualities: A Study Of Diversity Among Men And Women (1978) (discussing asexuals throughout as subsets of male and female homosexuals).
