I’m not sure if the mods of Asexual Advice just
Hopefully they’ll acknowledge it? It could be the case that the mods are currently discussing a possible response among themselves. I don’t think it’s possible that none of the mods have seen it, at least.
Asexual Advice in general and Kiowa in particular have been criticized on this topic repeatedly in the last year. Whether or not they actively respond, I am not optimistic about future change.
That’s fair. I never was, either.
By the way, I realized you may not know this, but Kiowa is nolivingunderstarlight, aka the person who sparked the controversy that led to this: http://nextstepcake.tumblr.com/post/88455081786/nolivingunderstarlight-southpawscopic
Oh don’t worry, I put that together.
It’s possibly also fair to note that they’ve repeatedly emphasised that their blog runs on a queue of about ten days in length, so it’s also possible that they have queued (or are debating and will queue) a response.
Out of interest, what sort of response would you want? Were I in their position, I would be unsure whether a response would be called for, since the only option besides arguing appears to be ‘huh, you said a thing. Neat. I’ll take it into account.’, and that’s not often a response people actually want you to write. (This isn’t to say you’re wrong to want one, I’m just curious as to what form an ideal response would take.)
Best case scenario? Um… an apology and a total policy overhaul? A lot of the examples I pulled from them are recent or indicate an ongoing problem in the way they’ve been running the blog, so if (hypothetically) they were to agree with 100% of what I put on there, I’d expect them to express some commitment to change or something. As someone else mentioned, it would probably involve changing their FAQ page, too.
Cool, thank you for clarification. :)

(oh man, I should have called it that they’d use the “drama” tag for this)

…So telling people what labels to use is okay as long as the person you’re identity-policing is uncertain and vulnerable and new to the community? What?
It’s fine to identity police people who don’t know that it’s not okay when people tell you what your identity is. /sarcasm

Thanks for the link (I’m in the process of reading through it as I write this comment here). This actually came sooner than I expected, so at least that’s nice.
