"The Oppression Olympics"
I just want to be clear, as far as I’m aware, nearly all GSM communities are very accepting of asexuals. The queer department at my uni is super accepting.
Just… every now and again it comes up that asexuals ‘aren’t oppressed enough’ to be queer, or to have a letter in the alphabet soup (however, allies WHO ARE HETEROSEXUAL are allowed???) and then there’s a huge long debate about it and it’s seriously peturbing. Not least because of all the erasure that goes on which is exactly the kind of thing we have the biggest issue with.
Anyway, some of my friends and I are running an asexuality 101 workshop in the queer lounge for Asexuality Awareness week and that’s why I drew this.
Based on past comics posted here, I feel there may be some disagreement on this, which is why I hesitated reblogging it (the artist submitted it) for a while. However, I decided I’d rather promote healthy discussion than silence people in our own community. Please be respectful to the artist even if you don’t agree with their assessment of the situation.
Okay, I realize this hilariously late for Asexuality Awareness Week (which was last week), but due to unforeseen stressors, it didn’t really get done in time.
Anyway! I’ve wanted to do something like this for a while, and I’m proud of myself of actually getting a six page comic done within a week. (Not that it’s really anything super fancy, but it’s better than nothing lol) I do apologize for the massive ugly text wall that is page four but I had a hard time figuring out how to convey it visually while being kind of pressed for time.
oh and the occasional copy/paste, I’m sorry for that too
Enjoy! Click on the separate pictures if the text is hard to read.

Ace-Comics is going on hiatus due to a lack of fresh content available to share with the community. The mod also needs a break because of overexposure to toxic discussions about asexual issues. If there’s anything you’d still like to submit, please do so as usual; it will be attended to at the earliest possible opportunity.
Thank you for following and making Ace-Comics what it has been since the beginning.
Something that I drew up a while ago. Self portrait.
Asexy Life, an asexual puberty.
This is the first installment to the Asexy Life comics. It’s going to mainly focus on asexuality, and self-discovery, but it will also touch upon other sexuality and gender-issues! So, I hope that you enjoy these. They’re all based on real life.
