ace ppl deserve better than the treatment this site decided to give them just cause tumblr decided they weren’t oppressed enough to be respected as people

Aro people deserve better than being treated like they don’t exist and for 70% of narratives abt ppl not experiencing romantic love to portray them as villainous or infantile

and whether or not you think they should be considered part of the lgbtq+ community, you don’t get the right to treat them without respect and harass them.

I think the reason so many ignorant people think heretoromantic aces and heterosexual aros are “straight” is because they see our asexuality, our aromanticism, as a weird “neutral” rather than an orientation, as a recessive gene that gets overwritten by the attraction we do feel. They are wrong. My asexuality colors so many of my thoughts, and in our romance saturated culture, I’m sure aromanticism does the same for aromantics. It is not an odd quirk for an otherwise straight person. It is a different facet of being queer, and anyone who wishes to identify with that word should not be pushed away.

Aromantic and agender people deserve to be mentioned. Allos, alloaces, and non-agender people please reblog

hello! I'm ace myself but I struggle to understand some parts of aroace folks. How can you be les/bi/pan/straight/etc if you're aroace?

I do believe so, for example you could have a preference for a Queer platonic relationship to be rather with men, women, women and men and other genders, etc. So for example you could call yourself an aroace lesbian if you feel like the sapphic identity fits. (When I say women and men I do mean both cis and trans women/men)

And if you´re not sex/romance repulsed and you want a relationship that involves some romantic and/or sexual activities you can still have a preference for whom you´d share those activities with so yes, I do think that you can be both aroace and les/bi/gay/straight/etc. if it feels like the label fits.

(Aroaces, aros and aces can still engage in romantic and/or sexual activities if they choose to. Asexuality/Aromantism is just the lack of sexual/romantic attraction. You can still have a libido/sex drive as an ace or seek out romantic activities as an aro cause you enjoy the feeling they give you and still be ace/aro)

I´m aroace myself but I´m personally much more comfortable around women or at least not cis men, so if I were to pursue a QPR with someone I´d probably choose a woman as a partner or someone who is genderqueer/trans aka not a cis man. So I think Iam more sapphic or bi leaning? I still need to figure that out. But that is a very theoretical situation.

May you find someone who you are compatible with. 💕

May you find someone who respects your boundaries, whether sexual, romantic, or any other. 💗

May you find someone who cares about you and vice versa. 💓

May you find someone that genuinely contributes to your happiness. 💖

I hope you find the relationships you want, whether with a partner, friend, family, or anyone else. And if you don’t want any, I hope you find happiness wherever you are.

You shouldn’t have to *try* to be attracted to someone. Like it shouldn’t take any kind of purposeful intent on your part. It should just happen. It should be natural.

I find myself every once in a while falling back in to old habits I developed as a kid when I was trying to fit in. I’d look at someone and kind of *will* myself to have a crush on them or think they were sexy or whatever.

I’d look at someone and then imagine doing some kind of romantic thing with them and if i wasn’t completely repulsed by the idea then I’d be like “yeah I guess I’m attracted to them.”

But that’s really not how it’s supposed to work.

I imagine that this is something that a lot of non-straight people can probably relate to. I’m sure a lot of you went through that “trying to be straight” phase.

Just know that when it comes to sexuality/attraction, if it feels unnatural then it probably is

[link to the article] Scrolling through my phone I just saw this and as an aro/ace that wants to have children one day it made me so happy. A magazine I follow also made a story about co-parenting in my country (Brazil) and how people are meeting in sites in order to raise a child together without romance and sex and things like this makes me so happy.

This is so damn cool.

This is freaking awesome!!!!

A moment of silence for all of the asexual and/or aromantic people in history who were “devoted to their work”.

Always remember that aspec history goes deeper than we know – historical erasure via heteronormativity and a past of inadequate language to encompass aspec identities does not make us any less real
