Wow, is this a description? Amazing.
First, go click on the random post feature down there. Do it! It's so cool!
Did you do it? Anyway. I'm a twenty year-old demibi grey-aro mutt-raced upper-middle-class american (if that mess of labels is what matters to you), and this is my blog. I use she/her pronouns. I make comments in the tags sometimes. My Likes list contains mostly how-tos, reference guides and music, so that's a nice thing to check up on now and then if you like that stuff. My Trntbl is hella and often helps me when I feel low: from cool music to humor clips, it's just the audio version of this blog minus the sj and most of the fandoms. If you ask me things, I will answer them if you're not a dick about it. If you are a dick though, I commend you on being able to blog and type successfully. You do you.
Anyway, it's about to get moderately wild up in here, and I hope you're 100% for the ride.
if i as a retail worker have to work with a dozen cameras pointed at me to deter me from stealing $10, cops should have to work with a camera pointed at them to deter them from arbitrarily maiming and killing people
people who say ”romantic love is what makes you human!!!!” are actually right. aromantic people are, in fact, gods in disguise, traveling in the human world to observe and study the humans and their weakpoints, in order to eventually eliminate them all and take over their world

Someone being ace- or aro-spectrum does not in anyway victimize those around them
Even if there are unrequited crushes involved
Get that gross attitude out of your mind and writing and burn it with fire
can someone please explain this post?
A big part of it is like demigenderfoxmulder's reply explained, but though the whole “friendzone” thing is a big part of it, it really goes beyond that in a lot of ways.
It’s also friends saying that anything attractive or even simply positive about you is wasted on you because “you’re never going to use it properly.” Parents acting like your disinterest in getting married and settling down being a personal attack or an act of rebellion. It’s anyone and everyone accusing asexual people with allosexual partners as abusing them for “depriving” them of sex.
Even the friendzone thing comes from a different angle and hits us extra hard. The most we could ever want with a person is seen as an insult, an attack on a person’s worth. Even people who will rail against men and the very idea of “friendzone” will still display and support this kind of behavior.
I made this post a while back as knee-jerk venting mostly as the unrequited love thing (someone had reblogged an aro ace headcanon of mine with this melodramatic shrieking HOW COULD YOU DO THIS TO ME???? thing cause they shipped their character with him, and then defended themselves by saying it’s “only human” to feel victimized like that, and that it must be the saddest thing in the world to develop feelings for an aro person, etc)
But as it picked up speed and got more and more replies, I couldn’t be more sickened by what I’ve heard other aro and/or ace people having to go through on a regular basis.
