May 8th is Ace Visibility Day. You might see some people posting playing cards all over their blogs, and here’s why: each card represents a different part of the Asexual spectrum!
♥ Ace of Hearts: Alloromantic Asexual – experiences romantic attraction regularly toward one or more genders. This includes orientations such as heteroromantic, homoromantic, biromantic, polyromantic, and panromantic.
♠ Ace of Spades: Aromantic Asexual – does not experience romantic attraction toward any gender.
Ace of Diamonds: Demiromantic/Demisexual & Grey-aromantic/Grey-Asexual– Experiences romantic and/or sexual attraction only if a strong emotional bond is established. OR Experiences romantic/sexual attraction rarely, not strongly enough to act on, only under specific circumstances, or fluctuates between periods of experiencing attraction and not experiencing it.
Ace of Clubs: Questioning/Unsure of Orientation – Aware they fall on the aromantic and/or asexual spectrum, but not sure where.
