I suggested bees for an ace symbol but… Hm… If bees are already bi culture, then I don’t wanna accidentally infringe on anything. (As a biromantic person, I can fully see bees being bi culture, and I wouldn’t be surprised if they were!)
So instead of bees, why not wasps as ace culture?
Think about it:
+ people think of both aces and wasps as unfeeling
+ some wasps are solitary (aces who don’t want a romantic partner and/or aroace people) and some are social (aces who do want a romantic partner and/or acealloro people)
+ the color black is both on wasps and the ace flag
+ wasps, just like aces, are all over the world
+ similar to how ace headcanons are ignored in favor of “better/cooler sexualities,” wasps are often ignored in favor of “better/cooler insects”
+ legally allowed to sting, which is pretty heckin cool
+ wasps are similar but not exactly the same as hornets, like how asexuality is similar but not exactly the same as aromanticism. Solidarity!
+ wasps have stereotype of stinging, but some don’t! (Like how aces have a stereotype of not having sex, but some do!)
+ opportunity for bee bi/wasp ace solidarity
(Thanks @loyalunicorn for inspiring this, btw!)
I’m gonna reblog this and tag some people who liked and/or reblogged the bee ace post! Please spread this instead!
AND YES, ALLO PEOPLE CAN REBLOG THIS!
Plus wasps help with pest control and pollinate too! Very helpful to the ecosystem!
