Just so you know... this post has curse words lol
I am an idiot.
I just realized two days ago that I’m biromantic.
Before I came out, I was constantly complaining that I was straight, and I said things like, “I reaaaally wish I could date girls. They’re sooo pretty. But of course I just HAD to be straight.”
Like bitch how dumb can you be? If you want to date girls you’re not fuckin’ straight.
And my asexual ass said things like, “I don’t care what’s in their pants. I care more about their personality.”
I had this whole year-long existential crisis thinking I was aromantic because I couldn’t tell the difference between a crush on a guy and a friendship with a girl.
And why do you think that was? Because those “girl crushes” you had were more than platonic and you just didn’t know it.
Wait, you mean thinking about kissing your best friend isn’t a straight thing?
It’s so funny to look back at how blind I was.
Did you get jealous of the prettiest girl in your grade because she got all of the guy’s attention, or did you low-key hate seeing her with guys she didn’t deserve?
Don’t lie you blind idiot. You thought she was really cute and got jealous when you saw her with other people.
And I used to say, “I like guys that can embrace their femininity. Painted nails? Pierced ears? Long hair? Amazing. I also don’t like guys with facial hair.”
Like bitch you’re obviously bi with a preference for girls. Why did it take me so long to figure that out?
I have no fucking clue.
And I always found my way to the bisexual side of tiktok smh I’m so dumb.

The New York Times did a weird (profoundly limited and short-sighted) little article on "best friend marriages" aka qprs. I guess we should be glad that the asexuality spectrum was in the NYT?
Yeah. I kind of hated it.

Todoroki Shouto always had issues pinpointing his feelings.
But this was his body, his mind, and his feelings. So why the hell didn't he know what they meant ?

Because there’s some discussion about this in my orbit, I’d like to take this opportunity to remind everyone that the aspec community is not a monolith. In fact we’re a very heterogenous group.  There will be times when we disagree about content and representation.  The fact that some folks may not consider something to be insensitive or aphobic, does not overrule the fact that others do.  We all have different experiences and we all have the possibility of interpretting things in different ways.  It is incredibly frustrating to witness people getting attacked over stating that they have been harmed by a piece of media as well as by other (allo) fans’ reaction to that media. 
We can disagree without invalidating eachother.

Aroace culture is thinking everyone experiences attraction the same way you do (meaning none) when you're a teen, and that everyone's fixation with sex/romance is just one of those societal pressures everyone goes along with. Only to find out as an adult that, no most people really do love sex and romance and you are the outlier.

As an asexual, the fluctuation for me between being sex-repulsed and sex-favorable is fuckin wild.
Like holy shit what the fuck is up with that.

One year ago today, I came out as asexual. I like to draw things to document important occasions, so this is what I made. It’s been a long year, with a lot of things to explain to a lot of people, but I don’t regret coming out. At all.

ace culture is understanding that no matter what your sexuality or romantic attraction is, allo or not, that everyone is perfectly valid <33

Ace culture is hearing/seeing the term "asexual" in lgbt+ stuff with no explanation, not understanding what it means, looking it up, and staring at your device in shock realizing that's you.

I know this is unrelated from my usual posts but I just thought it was a really important thing to discuss.
This is a discussion on societies views of sex and sexuality (focusing on it's impact on a minor) so if that makes you uncomfortable please don't read further <3
I came out as biromantic / asexual when I was 13 (the bi part is unrelated) and those have been the labels I've continued to identify for years since.
At 13 I was being pressured by older (now ex) friends to be interested in sexual things. They were the first people I came out to as ace because of all the pressure they put me under to be interested. I came out because it was the only way for them to stop.
I was 13.
From the moment I realises I was asexual, I was already thinking about how I would ever stay in a relationship and keep my partner happy. I thought I was unlovable.
At thirteen.
I was already thinking how I would just have to let my partner have sex with other people while I was with them so they'd stay with me. But I'm too jealous and insecure. So I thought I'd just never find love.
At thirteen years old.
I'd already decided that since I do want children then I would have sex to have children. Or maybe I'd just adopt. But I knew it would make me uncomfortable having sex and yet I did want a biological child.
I was a thirteen year old, a child myself.
My mum was convinced I would grow out of it. She wanted me to grow out of it. She tried to understand but could never quite grasp it. Convinced even at 13 I would be having a sexual relationship with my partner. Both my parents making jokes about it. Jokes I would be uncomfortable with even if I wasn't asexual. But I was.
AT THIRTEEN YEARS OLD, I WAS A CHILD.
It's been years and even now my parents won't understand it. At least my friends do. And I'm still with my partner. He shows me that I'm loved and can be in a fullfilling relationship despite him not being asexual too. I truly see a future with him. He respects every boundary I set and can tell if I'm getting uncomfortable before even I can. So I promise it does get better, a little at a time.
I don't even entirely know what my point is. Just that we need to protect the children who need a safe place to grow up and learn about themselves. I had to fight so hard to feel understood and loved and accepted. I was a child who thought I was unlovable. I wanted (and still want) a long term relationship and a family, I thought I could never get that. That I was already a lost cause who couldn't achieve my own dreams.
So to society, do better. To anyone reading this, I hope this will inspire you to do something good in the world. And to anyone feeling the way I felt, I promise it will get better, you are loved and lovable, you are not broken and I see and cherish you.

I am completely aware that Target putting out pride merch is a cash grab by a corporation and nothing deeper, however, that doesn't mean I'm not touched to see ace and nonbinary pride stuff there. Because it implies that there's enough of us who are vocal about it to actually seem worth catering to as a demographic, even if it's just barely so. Because there are people who will see asexuality mentioned and wonder what it means, and learn about it without me or any other ace person having to explain ourselves for once.
TL;DR Corporations can't and don't have morals, but I will take any ace/NB visibility I can get.
