white people need to fucking stop speaking over ace people of color and telling us we’re being racist for headcanoning characters of color as ace
my existence as an ace person of color is not inherently racist. i am allowed to want representation. ace headcanons of characters of color by ace people of color are not to be blamed for the desexualization or oversexualization of people of color. i am not responsible for my own oppression.
Boy I hate when people are like “DONT TELL TEENAGERS ABOUT ASEXUALITY OR THEYLL LABEL THEMSELVES ACE” and they don’t think it doesn’t sound exactly like “if we tell our kids about gay people they’ll be gay” like holy shit
there’s no “sex culture.” there’s a het culture, and straight ppl fetishizing lgbp ppl is a part of our culture, and a misogynist culture that pressures women into sex, but no specific sex culture. there’s no privilege to feeling sexual attraction, there’s a privilege relying on other forms of oppression.
