My dear lgbt+ kids,
With Valentine’s Day coming up, here’s a reminder:
It’s okay to be aromantic.
It’s okay to be romance-repulsed.
It’s okay to not want a partner.
It’s okay to be in a platonic relationship.
It’s okay to be single.
It’s okay to be asexual.
It’s okay to be sex-repulsed.
It’s okay to not want to have sex.
It’s okay if multiple of the mentioned things apply to you.
During the days around Valentine’s Day, surrounded by media that screams “Romance!” and/or “Sex!” at you, it can be hard to remember it but please let me remind you: You are okay. You matter. You’re lovely just the way you are. You don’t need anyone or anything to “complete you”. You’re not broken.
With all my love,
Your Tumblr Mom
