Idk why people think heteroromantic aces don't suffer about our sexuality. I didn't cry nearly this much when I was sure I was heterosexual. I just figured out that I'm (probably) hetero ace a month ago. I keep crying about dying alone and how I can never tell my family bc they wouldnt understand. Like ugly hyperventilating crying. It's weird that the LGBT community on Tumblr makes me hate myself more than I already do bc I was SO sure they would give me a safe place to figure my sexuality out.
They absolutely don’t consider it which is a shame because for a part of my queer existence the pain factor that some people want to base being in the community on was caused from my solely from asexuality. It was because I was not straight and was not able to go through life as a straight person even when I thought it was hetroromantic. I remember back when I didn’t know much about gender and nothing about the split attraction model (SAM). All that bullshit, pain, and abuse frankly came from asexuality not fitting into straight society. And it’s an utter fucking shame that the LGBT community often times turns people way because they wanted someone more like them. It’s definitely hard to navigate at times but hang in there and try to put yourself around good kind people.
