aggressivelyarospec:

#AggressivelyArospectacular is happening in 6 days!

Let’s take this moment to remember all of the different ways to submit work to the project:


Make a new post on tumblr and use the tag #AggressivelyArospectacular (in
one word) in the FIRST FIVE TAGS. (that last rule is super important, if
you don’t follow it we won’t find your post.)

– Submit a link to your post directly on your blog.


If you don’t have a Tumblr or if it is not safe for you to come out as
aro on your personal blog, you can submit your work on anon to us and
we’ll post it for you.

If
your post hasn’t appeared on our blog three days after you have posted
it, please don’t hesitate to contact us directly and link us to your
post!

Any original creative content is welcome!

We can’t wait to see all your contributions!

Hey! I really need some aro positivity right now please :c (Btw if you know some blogs i could follow it would be really cool)

The other’s might know of some good blogs to follow, as might our followers!

The kind of love you do or don’t feel has no bearing on the value of who you are as a person. Aros are awesome and real and they (we) all deserve respect and validation. Being aro is amazing and ever since I learned about it I’ve felt so proud to be one. And you should too!

Hey! I just wanted to ask how someone can be aroace and a lesbian? This isn’t me trying to gatekeep, it’s just that I feel genuine resonance with the idea of being aroace and sapphic, but I’m confused as to how that works. When I dream up a life-partner, it’s never a romantic or sexual union, and it’s always a woman, but I’ve only ever heard “lesbian” and “sapphic” used in romantic, sexual terms. Thanks in advance, a smol confused bean who loves your blog.

I, myself, am aromantic graysexual and a lesbian. I say its very possible. It’s entirely possible to have a life partner whom you have neither romantic nor sexual interest in. Platonic attraction and Aesthetic attraction exist! Platonic love is no lesser than romantic or sexual love. 

I think what you are specifically wanting is known as a Queer Platonic Partner and it’s something I highly suggest researching into and looking for!

It took me years of self discovery to come to terms that I’m somehow both a lesbian and aromantic (and often fully asexual). It didn’t make sense to me back then either, but the feeling was still there. So even if you don’t understand it yet, embrace it anyways and look into it! You certainly aren’t alone in feeling that way.

romance-repulsed-aros:

Things better than romance:

  • The taste of your favorite foods when you haven’t had them in awhile
  • That warm, cozy feeling when you get into bed and put your blanket on
  • The high pitched meows of newborn kittens
  • The relaxed, sleepy atmosphere of a night road trip
  • Finally understanding something you were having trouble with before
  • Adrenaline rushes
  • Getting a hug when you’ve been touch-starved
  • Creating sentences in a language you’re learning
  • Listening to a song so good that it hits you in the heart
  • Letting go of your inhibitions

I like sex and I feel sexual attraction to boys and girls. But I don’t feel romantic attraction, have romantic emotions/feelings, enjoy romantic things/stuff or relationships. For years I thought something is wrong with me. Am I just a aromantic bisexual girl ? Please answer, I’m so desperate. 😩 Sorry for my English, it isn’t my native language.

Your english is fine, buddy. And yeah, sounds like you might be bisexual and arospec. A lot of people are allosexual and arospec. There’s nothing wrong with you, it’s just how you’re wired. You’re definitely welcome in the ace/aro community! You can see definitions of aromantic spectrum identities here
