Hello, I'm Ace

Continuing that discussion about relatively simple, cheap visibility projects that anyone, anywhere can do. Maybe that's a little ambitious, but it has to be easier than large, expensive projects that only a select few with CIA training can accomplish. This is one of my ideas, which might be ridiculous, but hey, we're brainstorming:
I've seen people writing graffitti on stickers like this:

I was thinking that one could take these stickers and a Sharpie, write asexual phrases on them, and covertly stick them around town. You could also use those blank labels commonly found in offices. The whole point here is to get people to Google the word "asexual" and hopefully compound other visibility efforts. If you live in a small community and you're the only out asexual that people know of, I guess it won't be that covert...but no one can prove it!
If you like this idea, go forth and sticker...

That... is brilliant. I think I will try doing that. If nothing else I can be an amusing sight as I covertly approach random public structures, slap a sticker on them, and go running in the opposite direction. :P

Any suggestions for asexual phrases?

Ooh, I'm glad people are going to do it! I wrote "asexual", "asexual revolution" and "asexuals don't fuck you". Whatever gets the word out there...

I love a sneaky good time. :)
I used to do this actually, for other causes - mainly fighting back against the beauty industry. I'll put some post-its in my bag and get to sticker-ing!

You should be able to get them at any stationary/office store!

By the way, you can donwload a template for business-card style 'Google Me' cards (just Google them). I'm going to put asexual phrases in the 'search box' and put them in random places.
