  1. Hello!

    This is relevant to the content of Episode 69, Embracing LGBT, but this popped into my mind while I was watching this recent episode.

    I don’t mean to disentangle transgendered folks from the movement and the rights they deserve, but wouldn’t LGBA (with the A replacing the T) make more sense? As it was mentioned in this episode, the T is more of a gender identity issue, whereas asexuality fits more snugly with the other sexual orientation minorities. So if we’re just analyzing this on binary terms, it makes sense to feel attracted to gender A, gender B, both genders, or neither. But, since of course many people identify as third gender or no gender, etcetera, pansexuality should also be tacked onto the label so no part is left out. Thus, LGBAP. Or LGBPA. Whichever suits your fancy. Granted, this probably won’t ever change, because people are too accustomed to the current acronym and its meaning. Still, I stand by my opinion, if only for the sake of logic.

    I’m a fairly new listener, so I’d like to send my appreciation to you for this wonderful podcast. Keep up the lovely work.

  2. Greetings A Life team~

    I just finished a listening marathon of this podcast’s past few months, as I’m horrible at staying up to date on such things. But do hope to be better this coming year. Having something to listen to that has an asexual perspective is quite refreshing for me, being an Ace myself. I wish I was creative and could list out some new topics you could cover, but I’m not sadly. Anyways, just wanted to leave an encouraging note about how great I think this show is and hope you guys can keep it going.

    Happy New Year~ =)

  3. Hello, this is your link-fairy.

    Are these the weird food stuffs you’ve been discussing?
    Salty Finnish candy? and the scary fish thing? (Is the humor section of the Lutefisk article offensive to the Nordic-countries people? I hope it’s not…)
