CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS! July Carnival of Aces, 2016: Make ’em Laugh

Hello! This is the call for submissions for this month’s (July ’16) Carnival of Aces, a blogging carnival focusing on those inhabiting the asexual spectrum and asexual issues. It revolves around a different theme each month and seeks respondents who have something to say about the topic and how it relates to asexuality as a whole, or their own personal experiences. The masterpost can be found here in the caring hands of The Asexual Agenda.

Last month’s topic was “Resiliancy,” hosted by tumblr user Rock of Aces . Be sure to check out some of the submissions!

This month’s topic is humor

Carnival topics often lend themselves to being incredibly serious and personal, so I thought it would be good to open the floor up to light-hearted possibilities, especially in light of the aphobia rearing its head again on tumblr. We could use a little humor right about now.

As always, there are many ways this topic can be approached–ways both serious and light-hearted. A few ideas of things to write include:

  • Tell us your favorite ace joke, or assemble a list of your favorite ace-related puns.
  • Does your orientation affect your sense of humor?
    • i.e., do you prefer ‘clean’ jokes over dirty ones?
  • Has something amusing happened to you because of your asexuality?
  • Has humor been used against you as a response to coming out, etc.?
  • Describe something ace-related about yourself that amuses you (or amuses your partner/close friend).

Submissions can be done in a number of ways! Reply to this post with a link to your response, or use the submit function on my tumblr blog (a-reluctant-witch).

If you would like to make a guest post (anonymous or not) on this blog please feel free to email it to me at

    I hope you enjoy them and I hope they apply to the theme well enough. I couldn’t really think of anything very lighthearted or fun to submit for this month, so instead I wrote serious essays… Lol. XD
