Via fairerluminosity on tumblr: Can I please thank you from the bottom of my heart for your podcast with Kirsty about asexual representation in games? As an asexual gamer, I have felt so many of the things that you two talked about. Fresh Out Of Tokens is just so awesome. Please keep asking the controversial questions! There are people out there that finally have their voices heard because you haven’t been afraid to speak up. You’ve started a landslide and given confidence to a lot of people who will no longer accept less.

Really wonderful discussion! Some reading for you, once you’re done listening:
- “Coming Up Aces: The need for Better Asexual Representation in Games”
- “Asexuality & Cole’s Humanity in the ‘Dragon Age’ Trespasser DLC”
Let’s always, always make an effort to listen to the voices in this community who are directly affected by the representation (or lack thereof) found in games. 🙏
