asexual awareness

*that moment when Bill Nye includes asexuality in his Bill Nye Saves the World sexuality episode and is even wearing an outfit made up of the asexual colors*

Like, this isn’t one of those funny posts with a gif at the end. I mean it sincerely. I got unexpectedly emotional when this happened. It’s nice to be acknowledged as existing for once.   

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.

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!!

I got a prompt from my older brother: 

“Why don’t you do some big, muscular guy. He has to have at least a 4 pack. Draw that guy with the ace flag as a cape.”

So this is Ace Romero, Ordinary Joe by day, Asexual crime fight by night. His specialty: helping people get out of uncomfortable conversations/situation that involve sex.

This started out as a joke, but now it’s serious and I want to draw him in actual comic strips doing Ace stuff.

Should I?
