Support ask 2! I mean I don’t know the guy but I was once in such “relationship” when someone just couldn’t accept my orientation and continued on trying to “fix” me. Ended up in “almost rape” situation, so nope. No sympathy for such assholes.
I am so sorry to hear about that! And yeah, this is why we both reacted so strongly, because that is unfortunately not the only time we’ve heard such stories, and we want all our aro and ace friends to be safe.
And from a different anon:
really hope the anon comes back to tell his story….i mean he genuinely sounded like he wanted help but idk. youre nice kiowa, but sometimes you can get hella scary O.O …wouldnt want to get on your bad side. You were invalidating his feelings, but he might have deserved it..
I hope they come back as well, so that if they were looking for further advice, we can help them… and if not, so that they can hopefully realize the problematic parts of what they said and reconsider.
Alright folks, Kiowa has stepped out from the ask box, at least for a while, so I’m answering and posting this one on her behalf to say thank you to everyone who has responded with either support or with their own contributions regarding the message. That being said, after fielding so many replies, I think at this point we’ve pretty much covered all the bases without hearing back from the original anon. So while we do always love hearing from you guys, and I know Kiowa appreciates all the support, I think we can probably let this one rest.
You all are lovely, and thanks for keeping us honest, and having our backs.
