  1. I watched the one-minute video linked within and I feel like the interviewee very likely subscribes to the idea that gray means “not sexual enough to be non-asexual, not sex-repulsed enough to be asexual.” Ugh. (I also would have liked it if the one-minute video didn’t have scantily clad dudes wiggling their crotch bulge…)

  2. Yeah… I’m also annoyed they linked to that article that quoted me without permission. I wouldn’t be surprised if they’re just lazily drawing their definition from that. Which… was a journalist making things up with no input from the people who were contacted for the story. If that was the case, then this is like… at least thrice-removed from an original source.

  3. For what it’s worth, this is by a reporter who was basically banned from recruiting from the LA meetup group after badgering group members/trying to stealth interview people without permission/expressing a lot of ignorance about asexuality without much interest in learning/lying to potential interviewees/disrespecting pronouns/other general rude behavior.

    So I wouldn’t be surprised if this is a case of the reporter cherrypicking interviewees and quotes to get one that fit his own preconceptions.
