do any of you other asexuals call someone hot and then regret it because people will think it’s sexual but you really just meant that they’re a step up from cute in the aesthetic attraction department? because you both don’t mean “hot” the same way??
Wanted: other asexuals to join my new crime-fighting squad. Our slogan is “too bad I have an ace up my sleeve… or several,” and you all gotta emerge dramatically from the shadows every time I say it. Now accepting applications.
FUN FACT: it seems like more and more people are coming out as asexual because we finally feel safe enough to do so, it is not a fad, it is not a trend, and if you think it is one of those things please hop on the shut-the-fuck-up train to don’t-fucking-speak-to-me-ville.
I made this for Asexual Awareness Week in November, but it turned out to be a bigger project than I expected. O.O But better late than never!
Asexuals are often a misunderstood sexual orientation, and many feel lost and alone due to the sheer lack of information about it! It was so hard to find ANY scientific sources about it for my research paper last year, and it’s all but invisible in mainstream media. So I hope this sheds some light on the subject!
Aces, you are not alone! We are valid and beautiful!!
Charlie wondering why everyone is so focused on who’s dating who
Charlie shyly turning down all the girls that ask him out
Girls getting mad at him and guys asking him what the fuck is wrong with you! After he turns down hot girl after hot girl.
Bill being super protective over Charlie and beating up on anyone who makes fun of him
Bill asking Charlie if he’s into guys and Charlie telling him no he’s not into guys or girls. He’d rather focus on his studies
Charlie coming across asexuality and realizing that it describes him perfectly. Then finding aromanticism.
Charlie coming out to Bill who smiles and says “I knew it”
Mrs. Weasley constantly asking him when he’s going to bring home a nice girl and when he tells her never she moves on to how about a nice guy?
Aro Ace Charlie having enough of it and deciding to come out to the rest of his family. They are confused and have questions but mostly accept him (helps that Bill just came out as bi not too long ago)
Mrs. Weasley agonizing over not having grandchildren and how unhappy Charlie will be all alone
Charlie going off on his mom telling her that he doesn’t want kids and he is quite happy studying dragons thank you very much. You have plenty of other kids who will give you grandchildren.
Charlie going back to Romania and getting a package from his mum containing a sweater in ace flag colors with a C on it.
Whenever anyone questions him about dating he just smiles and says he’s “more interested in dragons that he is about girls”
I work at a High School. I am the school’s Library Aid and Paraprofessional. During passing time the kids cut through the library and I tend to hear a lot of different conversations.
Well, during passing this girl was talking to her friends about her younger sister. Her younger sister identifies as Asexual.
I cannot tell you how happy this makes me feel. We are talking High Schoolers, the girl passing could have been a Sophomore or a Junior, which puts her around 15 or 16 years old. And her YOUNGER sister identifies Ace. Her YOUNGER SISTER GUYS! So she is under 16 years old! I can only wish I knew about Asexuality and the Ace Spectrum at their age.
Guys we are growing. We are doing good. We are getting the word out there. Younger kids are identifying as ACE! I could cry. This is so amazing. Kids out there have resources I never had. Kids can identify as ace because they know it exists. Kids don’t have to worry about what’s wrong with them. Kids can realize that they are not broken. Kids can realize that they are ace.
This makes me so happy. This makes me so proud. I love you guys! I love this community! Keep spreading that Ace Awareness! Keep fighting for representation and education! Let’s keep growing!
Quick shoutout to heteroromantic asexuals, biromantic asexuals, panromantic asexuals, polyromantic asexuals, aromantic asexuals, and demiromantic asexuals! You’re all super cool and wield a bow and arrow like no other
