“Aro-ace people are straight people”

  • Yeah, because straight people feel they’re broken or there’s something wrong with them because they don’t feel the same as other people
  • Because straight people don’t know about their sexuality until they’re old (unless they are lucky) because straightness* is barely visible
  • Because straightness* is seen as symptom of a mentally illness and/or as the result of a mentally illness
  • [tw sexual abuse] Because straight people are told they’re that way because of (usually sexual) trauma
  • [tw sexual abuse] Because sexually abused straight people have their straightness* invalidated because of the trauma-> “you have been sexually abused? Oh that explains why you say/think you are straight”
  • Because straight people lose friendships because friends can’t accept their straightness*
  • Because straight people only know one or two straight people irl, if they know any
  • [tw sexual abuse] Because straight people are afraid of coming out, not only due to fear of rejection but also of being sexually abused because of people who think their straightness* can be fixed with sex
  • Because straight people are told that “straightness*” isn’t a thing"
  • Because straight people are told ^^^ and mocked even in supposed safe-spaces for them (ltgb+ community)
  • Because being straight makes you unhappy because of all the romantic and sexual ideals society tells you you must pursue
  • Because straight people are invisible
  • Because straight people are told they haven’t found the right person

Yeah, you have convinced me, aro-ace and straight people are obviously the same


tl;dr: saying that aro-ace people are straight people is bs since the experiences of aro-ace people and straight people are vastly different.


Post data: most of the examples have been experienced by me, an ace gray-aro person, but ace-spec or aro-spec people can also experience these things, regardless of their other orientation, so hetero-romantic aces and hetero-sexual aros are also affected by these things.


straightness*: word used to meant heterosexuality+heteroromanticity, since I also use straight only to refer to heterosexual+heteroromantic people.
