My Women's Studies class has a volunteer requirement in which we have to complete a project outside the classroom that benefits women. Since coming to Beloit, I have found a complete absence of support for asexuals. There is a GLBTQ community, but no acknowledgment of the asexual orientation. For my project, I decided to try to remedy this by creating a blog for students that may be asexual or people interested in asexuality. I will be posting once a day through the first ever asexual awareness week (October 23rd-29th). I will explain some of the terms related to asexuality, issues faced by asexual individuals, and review a few of the articles that have been written about asexuality.
