Amanda C. Lee was born in Spokane, WA, but spent the majority of her childhood and adolescence in Northwest Louisiana. She has lived in five U.S. states (Washington, Arizona, Lousiana, Vermont, and Virginia), and spent two years in Mandeville, Jamaica. She is a proud alumna of Louisiana School for Math, Science and the Arts, a unique and remarkable residential high school in Natchitoches, LA. She achieved her Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies from Centenary College of Louisiana, and a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer. She spent the time between undergrad and law school doing various administrative, teaching, and social work type jobs. Currently she is in her seventh semester as a student at Vermont Law School, and completing an externship for that program in Northern Virginia. She is also currently undergoing treatment for late-stage Lyme disease. When she is not studying, or freaking out about taking the Bar exam this coming February, she spends her free time trying to catch up on the many movies and television shows she never got around to watching, reading, writing poetry, and spoiling the household cat. One of these days she plans on getting back into art as a hobby.

Considering the number of people I’ve come across who identify as asexual, it’s amazing that there isn’t more commentary available on it.
Amanda Lee’s paper is a personal and academic exploration of the phenomenon, and covers a lot of the things people don’t understand about it. It’s not at all difficult to read, and it’s not reserved for academics either — the style is plain and accessible. It defines the terms it’s using early on, so there’s no problems there.
