Community description:A place for asexuals in fandom
As the name says: Ace + Fandom = Awesome

Whether you're asexual or just want to support those of us who are, you're welcome here.

This is a community to discuss asexuality and fandom. For general asexuality discussion please see [community profile] asexuality. All posts here should be related to fandom in some way.


General Information About Asexuality

What Does Asexuality Mean to You?
General FAQ: Basic FAQ that answers a number of questions about asexuality.
Relationship FAQ: This will provide some answers to questions about how relationships with asexuals can work.

These are by no means comprehensive, but if you've never before read anything about asexuality they would be a good place to start.

Basic Guidelines

This is an open community, please respect that.

This is a safe space. We are not your 101 resource, please check out any of the many links here on the profile for ways to learn the basics of asexuality. Safe spaceness will be enforced.

This is a fannish community, please make sure your posts are on topic in that regard.

While we are primarily a discussion and meta community all fanworks are welcome so long as they relate to asexuality. Please use one of these headers for whatever it is you're posting. The AO3 share template is an acceptable alternative. No more than 3 icons or 1 600x600 image outside of a cut though.

It would also be much appreciated if you added an additional asexual context label to your posts. This would be along the lines of 'sexual content', 'no sexual content', 'romantic content', 'no romantic content' and anything else you think would be relevant (such as 'zucchini fic').

Please read these rules before posting any multi-part fanworks.

Paid advertisements must be kept to this post. Any paid advertisements posted directly to the community will be deleted.

Have a question for the mod? Ask here.

Introduce yourself here.

Check out the resource post here.

Feel free to start a discussion and have fun.

Community History

Recently there has been some confusion as to how and why this community was created. It's quite simple.

[community profile] asexual_fandom came about at the tail end of the late 2009-early 2010 slash vs. gay imbroglio. A number of bisexual and lesbian women had at that time been speaking up about their erasure by the debate being phrased as Straight Women vs. Gay Men. It was around this time that [personal profile] kaz made a post bemoaning the erasure of asexuals from just about everything. To pretty much everyone's shock asexuals came pouring out of the woodwork to chime in about their feelings on the matter.

Multiple people expressed interest in an asexual community focused on fandom and thus it was created.

See our Fanlore Entry for a list of the communities projects.
