supporting my Ace boyfriend!! I am SO pround of him and everything that he has done till today, Being himself. You’re all amazing & valid, I hope y'all have a great week forever! Happy #AsexualAwarenessWeek !! !!
All A-spec people belong. We are all deserving of love, respect, acceptance and community.
I wasnt able to include all of the flags/identities I wanted to in this, but hopefully the message is still clear. I might re-do this one day to be even more inclusive/include all the flags I missed. Maybe with a second ring or something.
Image Description: The picture is an a-spec positive drawing with the words ‘All A-spec people belong’ in big letters inside a ring of hearts and flowers.
The hearts in the ring are coloured to resemble a-spec flags:
Two asexual flag hearts - black, grey, white and purple stripes
Two demisexual flag hearts - a black triangle on the side with white, purple and grey stripes
Two aromantic flag hearts - dark green, light green, white, grey and black stripes
Two demiromantic flag hearts - a black triangle on the side with white, dark green and grey stripes
Between each heart in the ring there are (8) flowers. Each flower is coloured uniquely to resemble a different lgbt+ flag. This is meant to represent how a-spec people can also have varied non a-spec identities that are just as important to them/the variety of different identities among a-spec people.
The flags seen on the flowers, starting from the top of the circle and going clockwise, are:
The pansexual/panromantic flag - pink, yellow and blue stripes
The bisexual/biromantic flag -pink, purple and blue stripes
The lesbian flag - different shades of pink stripes
The gay flag - a rainbow/red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple stripes
The polysexual/polyromantic flag - pink, green and blue stripes
The transgender flag - stripes in the pattern: blue, pink, white, pink, blue
The intersex flag - yellow with a ring of purple in the middle
The non-binary flag - yellow, white, purple and black stripes

Day 4, Asexual Awareness Week. Intersectional experiences.
I suppose one of the sucky things about being on the ace-spectrum and a poc coming from a religious household is that people assume you feel the way you do because of some kind of repression or guilt complex. Dude no. There’s a difference between actively fighting against your sexual desires for someone and that desire for them not being there in the first place.
Also, last I checked, most religious households were never entirely against sex. Its usually encouraged after marriage so it’s not like religious people say ‘NEVER DO IT EVER.’ Religious people still think about sex with others. I just don’t because it doesn’t naturally occur to me. Not because I was taught to deny my feelings.
