So, I liked this episode for showing some reasonable balance with some asexuals who weren't AVENites, and weren't ashamed of what quirks they actually had. However, I did take issue with the short-sightedness of them stating (one outright, the other two agreeing) that the gay marriage issue doesn't involve asexuals at all.
A lot of asexuals still form romantic attachments, and those romantic attachments can still be same-sex and still develop into a desire for marriage (even without sexual involvement).
Plus, there's the general issue of how wanting other people to have rights even if those rights don't affect them is just plain, you know, neighborly.
There's also been some pretty good writing about how asexuality is legitimately on the queer spectrum. It's a bit alarming how many people only want to be inclusive to other people who are just like them, and their fight for equal rights, respect, and visibility and so on ends with their own personal issues - and then those people turn around and try to still differentiate why other people shouldn't get those rights, respect, or visibility.
Meanwhile, the AVEN forums themselves are pretty terrible, but David Jay seems to have his act together pretty well, and he's pretty well-spoken when it comes to relating with the media, at least. So, here's a two-for-one
in which David Jay addresses these issues.
