For Writers: Alien Ace

asexuality

Today’s writer topic comes from QSFer Matthew J. Metzger:

For ace: is the tendency of asexual characters to be non-human actually damaging perceptions of asexuality rather than providing positive representation?

That’s an interesting question. Yes, I know it may be a shock to some of you, but there are asexual people among us. Ace ranks way down the totem pole on LGBTIQA rights and awareness. I didn’t even know that I knew any ace folks until fairly recently.

So my questions today: Why is there such a scarcity of ace characters in queer fiction? And why are so many aliens? Does this help or hurt the general perception of ace charactrs, and people?
