I wonder how much of the reason it’s a lot easier for me to say “the only level on which romantic orientation makes sense to me is the ‘do you want to date?’ level and since the answer to that question is ‘no’ I’m aromantic” than it is for me to say the same about… Continue Reading →
“I guess aroace is an accurate description” people, doubt, contradiction and me vs. the label “aromantic”
This post is an amalgamation of three or four different topics. I was going to post it on PF, but then I thought it fit here a bit better. I apologize in advance. I’m actually really jealous of middle-aged people whose stance on their own sexual orientation is something like “yeah probably aroace is accurate… Continue Reading →
I think I might have mentioned in my first post about being a Tumblr ace that when I started calling myself a Tumblr ace it was as an apology, a way of saying “I know I’m a member of the cringiest sexual orientation on earth from the cringiest website on earth, I know, you don’t… Continue Reading →
The topic for the May 2021 Carnival of Aces was Words and Conceptualizations. I had six submissions. Thank you all so much! Frawley talked about the different ways they label themself depending on who they’re coming out to in “The Layer Cake of My Identity.” Frawley also discussed the usefulness of approximate definitions in “White… Continue Reading →

All of my issues with the Aro Community are a product of my own narrow-mindedness not any issues with the community itself. Back in February I… Continue Reading →
April’s Carnival was hosted by Demisexual and Proud. You can see the round-up right here. A lot of ace words are neologisms (honestly, depending on how much you’re counting the whole “asexual as in the type of reproduction you learned about in biology” thing for, you could argue that all of ace words are neologisms)….

The theme for the April 2021 Gender Exploration Carnival was “Neurodivergence/Mental Health.” We only had two submissions, but thank you so much anyway! I received the following submissions: Briar — “Lost and Not Yet Found“ You can’t see the outlines of it, light does strange things within the grayness, and your questions get swallowed up… Continue Reading →
Look at me posting late to my own carnival month, how very on brand of me. Anyway, it’s the last two weeks of classes so I probably won’t get the round-up done until tomorrow night so if you are running late too, as long as you get me a link before then I’ll put it… Continue Reading →
