A Life #64: Gender Repulsion

Download (MP3)

Feeling repulsed by your own gender is a theme that seems to come up pretty often in the asexual community. Gender repulsion goes beyond “simple” genital repulsion, since it encompasses other parts of your body as well as the societal norms and expectations placed on you because of your physical sex. This is what the rather small crew of A Life discusses this time around.

Poll:
Are you repulsed by your own gender?

A Life #63: In Queer Street

Queer is a term that has proved itself to be rather problematic for both people who identify as such and those who don’t. What does the word actually mean and who should be using it to describe themselves? And, ultimately, can asexuals be considered queer? These are the questions that accompany general randomness in this episode of A Life!

Poll:
Are you queer?

A Life #62: Great Pleasures

Download (MP3)

Sex is said to be one of the most important great pleasures in life and therefore we asexuals suffer as we’re missing out on it. But that is rather silly, because everybody derives great pleasure from different things. Therefore we discuss our great pleasures as well as a large dosage of the signature randomness you’ve come to expect in this episode of A Life.

Poll:
Do you feel there is validity to the existence of the men’s movement?
