Since it got promo’d in the AA linkspam, I looked into the new muslimaces blog (!) and scrolled down to find the introduction post. All of it sounds very nice, some of it even reminding me of my reasons for creating this blog, but there was one line that caught me by surprise:
Ace spaces are pretty religion phobic, there is no denying
I certainly wouldn’t have made such a claim in my first post here, and still wouldn’t now, although I wouldn’t deny it, either. A statement on “religion” would include all religions, but I wonder how much this indicates a disparity in the experience of Christian aces and Muslim aces, and I’m posting this not to disagree but to reach out for more perspectives, especially from aces who consider themselves “religious,” “spiritual,” or otherwise distant from the broad atheist + “nonreligious” demographic (not sure what words to use for people like you, Cor, but you’re invited).
