"So you're just friends" No, no you don't fucking get it, you don't actually get it.
CW - Blood, gore
“So, [Villain],” the hero began. “About this backup you hired . . .”
“Aren’t they great?”
The hero glanced to the villain. “They’re a bit different from what I expected.”
“What, really? Why?”
“Well, um, didn’t you mention that they’re ace?”
“Yeah. And what of it?”
“Aren’t aces supposed to be, I don’t know . . . innocent?”
The hero and villain watched on as blood sprayed in the air like fountain water.
“Look, [Hero], you said you wanted someone effective. Well, you can’t get more effective than [Delinquent].”
The delinquent was completely enthralled in their work. Their joyful laughter was nearly drowned out by the screams of the hero’s and villain’s enemies.
“Where did you even find them?” the hero asked.
“Oh now that’s a funny story. You see, it all started at Chuck E Cheese – ”
The hero and villain’s conversation paused when a disembodied head flew between them. The villain raised their eyebrows; the hero leapt back and swore.
“Please try to keep things from getting too messy!” the villain called over.
“Sorry boss!” the delinquent called back.
“No worries, hun! You’re doing great!”
“[Villain], I’m really not sure about this person.”
“Hey, it’s not my fault you went making assumptions based on people’s sexualities. Really, this is on you.”
“Hey boss,” the delinquent said. “Can I disembowel them too, or are you against that?”
The villain held up a hand. “Sweetheart, you do whatever you think is best. I have complete faith in you.”
The delinquent grinned wide. “Thanks boss!”
Then they merrily returned to their hacking.
“I think I’m going to be sick,” the hero said. They hurried off in search of a bathroom.
The villain watched them go, and sighed. Some people could just never be satisfied.

once again, I'm asking you all to please acknowledge the gray spectrums of aromanticism and asexuality. the concept of attraction is so subjective and complex that it can't exist on a black and white area only, a- and allo- aren't the only ways you can experience attraction. acknowledge the gray!
i just read loveless by alice oseman (a wonderful read), and it made me realize how invalidated i've felt about how deeply i love my friends. platonic love can be just as deep as romantic love, and i love my friends with all i am. i would literally do anything for them (other than have sex with them or date them, duh). i consider my two best friends to be my actual soulmates.
i've lost friendships that have left me completely heartbroken, and feel like legitimate breakups, but when i try to talk to someone about my feelings all they say is "see, boys and girls can never really be friends", or "why do you care so much? do you secretly like them? you have to admit it to yourself."
i am genuinely hurt when i have an amazing connection with a guy, but i don't like them romantically or sexually and then they just... leave. or, they make up stupid excuses about why we can't be friends, and they don't tell me how they really feel. it's traumatic. it happens over and over again. i'm constantly feeling left behind and like i'll never be good enough. i feel like i'll never be seen as a valuable friend and i'll always just be a prize to be won in the end, or a complete disappointment when i don't give them what they want.
Happy pride, include asexual people in your fandom more often! Make ace headcanons, include asexual characters in your stories, support ace fans, don't erase existing ace rep, call out aphobic or amatonormative writing on your shows and make ace people feel welcome! Specially if you're allo, because it really boosts our voices!
since pride month is coming up or whatever:
include aspecs in your pride. include aces and aros and those that are aspec in other ways; include those that are somewhere on the spectrum; include aros that aren't ace; include aroaces; include aces that aren't aro; include aspecs in relationships; include aspecs that never want relationships; include cishet aspecs; include aspec identities you don't hear about often; include our flags and include our voices
we are as much a part of this community as any other queer person
"Aro/aces aren't part of the lgbtq+ community , they don't face any oppression "
The LGBTQIA+ community is for people who deviate from the cishetnorm. Its for people that don't fit the image of liking the opposite gender sexually and romantically, while identifying as their AGAB.
Aros and aces don't fit into the ideal hetronormative identity therfore THEY ARE PART OF THE COMMUNITY
