here for all my baby aces.
here for all the ace teens being told they can’t be ace.
here for all the ace teens being told their sexuality is somehow putting others at risk (it’s not.)
here for all the teens who aren’t sure, but don’t really get all this sex stuff.
here for all the ace teens who got really worried after health class.
here for all the teens being told they’re just late bloomers.
here for all the teens who just are trying on different labels to figure out which one fits best.
here for all the teens who DO like the label ace, but are scared of all the discourse.
here for all the teens who don’t want a label, but just want to live their lives.
its okay. you’re okay. I love you. You have a right to try out whatever labels you want, or none at all. whatever you choose has no ill effect on other teens, and I will fight anyone who tells you differently. But most of all, know that you have time. If you want to identify as something now, and either keep it or change that later, great! You aren’t too young to try to understand yourself. If you just want to enjoy being a kid and not deal with sexuality right now, also great! You know what’s best for you. You have time.
