“Aromantic” and “Asexual” are not the same thing. Aromantic has to do with romantic attraction. Asexual has to do with sexual attraction.
They are not the same.
One is not an “extension” of the other. Aromantic is not a place within the asexual spectrum, and asexual is not a place within the aromantic spectrum.
They are two different identities.
Stop saying “the aroace spectrum.” Don’t tag something as #asexual if it only talks about aromanticism, and don’t tag something as #aromantic if it only talks about asexuality.
Acknowledge that these are two very different identities. Don’t just fucking smush them together in one little category and call it quits. That is extremely erasing and I’m getting tired of seeing this happen in pretty much every damn post I see.
