Thanks to everyone who participated in the January 2018 Carnival of Aces. This month’s theme was “Identity”. Here is the round-up of submissions:
- Lib wrote about how complex the question of identity is, and how little control we have over our identities in “Identity and Control”.
- Isaac wrote about their relationship to various identity categories in “Label =/= identity”.
- Sara K. and I both wrote about labels and identities, and how they’re not the same thing. Sara K. wrote about how she finds labels more useful than “identity” in “Identity? What’s That?”.
- Conversely, I wrote about how inadequate I find labels in terms of describing my identity in “Expecto Patronum: Seeking Identity in a World of Labels”.
- Perfect Number wrote about her ambiguous relationship with the queer community in Shanghai in “Finding My (Asexual, Straight, Married) Place in the Queer Community”.
- Coyote wrote about the relationship between being stone and being asexual in “Tapping at ‘Stone’: me & a stone (a)sexuality”.
- demiandproud wrote a poetical piece called “Sexually-liberated-modern-woman self versus demisexual self”.
- luvtheheaven wrote “Immutibility, aka the Parts of Myself That I Can Count On”.
- Elizabeth wrote “Identity vs. Labels, Culture, & Change”.
- Rotten Zucchinis wrote “‘Identity’ mini-series re: uniqueness and group membership”.
