It’s been a hot minute since I’ve been involved in ace discourse, so sit the fuck down, cause this has been bothering me for a while.
If you go around attacking someone for making a character ace/aro, or having a headcanon about it, or identifying with them because of ace/aro qualities, ask yourself why.
If you don’t think said character is ace/aro, don’t get involved with that post. Scroll on by, cause you have the free will to do it.
If you feel the need to question someone’s headcanon, bring evidence to them of why it isn’t true, proclaim fiercely that said character can’t be ace/aro because they’re something else instead, think really carefully about your need to do that.
That is acephobia/arophobia, and it needs to stop.
Ace/aro people have a right to make headcanons, too. We have a right to identify with certain characters without being questioned about it. If you don’t agree, don’t get involved.
Allosexuals and alloromantics are absolutely encouraged to reblog this.
