i wish there’s more central asexual and aromantic character in the media. Like make their asexuality completely obvious. Make their aromanticism extremely obvious. And make them the central characters, not just some supporting role with implied asexuality and/or aromanticism.
AND on the other hand, I wish the public audience would be more receptive towards accepting the characters as what they are - an asexual and/or aromantic. Rather than twist and turn the character interpretation so that it fits that romantic amatonormative stereotype.
You hate it when a homosexual character is forcefully interpreted to be straight by bigot audiences right? Like hello they’re gay, stop trying to make them straight, they’re gay, they exist, deal with it
Same thing here. If an ace/aro character exist, I wish to see the public accept them as what they are. Like they’re asexual, stop trying to make them homosexual / heterosexual / bisexual. And if they’re aromantic, stop trying to fit them into your amatonormative agenda. They’re just two characters who love and care a lot about each other platonically. Stop trying to insist that they must be gay / straight / bi. It’s platonic love. Aromantics exist. Deal with it.
