Four decades of death penalty executions by year, state, race and gender, in 1 chart
I dig the new wave of visualizations that are coming out, but I’m not sure it makes it any easier to understand what is actually happening. 
Some death penalty statistics:
14 females (1.01%) have been executed since the death penalty was reinstated in 1976, while 1,371 males have been executed (98.9%). 
771 (55.7%) were white, and 467 (33.7%) were black.
515 (37.2%) were carried out in Texas alone. (and that is even misleading as most of the executions come from only a few counties)
1,208 (87.2%) were executed by lethal injection. Lethal injection has also been used in last 744 of 755 executions.

Never strive to be one with another person, Sun Conch. You will want to. The heart can be very demanding. But don’t do it. Love only succeeds when two people realize they can’t be one, and learn to nurture the distance between them. Distance is what makes it possible to see another person for who they really are, whole, and naked against a clean blue sky. That is the beginning of real love.

I think it’s likely that many, even most Americans would only have sex with people they feel emotionally connected to. I think that’s a fair assessment. But it isn’t a description of demisexuality. Demisexuality is about desire and arousal, not just sex and who you do it with. It’s not merely that I’m only interested in having sex with people that I love, it’s also that I feel a complete absence of desire or sexual feelings toward everyone else. Ever. What makes me demisexual is that absence. What makes me demisexual is that I’ve only ever been sexually attracted to three people in my whole life. My partner is sexually attracted to that many people during particularly sexy bus rides. And you can tell me that most of the population is like me, but I just don’t think you’re right.

I don’t see any reason to put off announcing it any longer, so without further ado, this is the “secret” project I was working on. Check out some of the articles:
What is Demisexuality?
Could I Be Demisexual?
Am I Demisexual If…
Coming Out As Demisexual
And more! 
Share it, link to it, use it! Consider this a soft launch, and please provide feedback if you have it.* I want to do a bigger launch for Asexual Awareness Week. 
* Seriously, I would really appreciate ideas for articles, links and other ways to improve the site.

Asexuality is an orientation in which a person does not experience sexual attraction to any sex and/or gender. They do not feel an intrinsic desire to make sex a part of their relationships with other people. However they may still be able to experience other types of attraction, and desire relationships with other people.
