Aro culture is accidentaly flirting with people because you don't understand what's considerd friendly behavior and what's romantic, so while you're just trying to be nice to people and make friends, someone inevitably interprets it as you being interested in them, and then they either think you're weird, or you have to explain that you don't want to date them which makes you feel bad for them because they seemed excited.
Lmao help

romance-postive aro culture is feeling unsafe in the aro community because it feels like 90% of aromantics hate romance... and anyone who likes it. i love romance in fiction and im a big fan of romantic tropes when theyre done well. but i dont want to be in a romantic relationship myself! the thought makes me so uncomfortable, i hate it.
in the five months ive openly identified as aro, ive received so much hatred and invalidation. my inbox is full of death threats from other aromantic people. ive gotten asks saying things like, "you're lying about being aro for attention/to be trendy! you're a faker!" "you shouldn't talk about (insert fictional relationship here), you're making REAL aros look bad/fake!" "you're stealing space in a community that doesnt want you!" "people like you only claim to be aromantic because you hate us and you want to get into our community so you can hurt people." "if you like fictional romance then you aren't aromantic, you're a predator trying to target REAL (romance-repulsed) aros!"
i didnt even realize i was aromantic until six months ago. now, five months after coming out, i feel like i have to choose: do i hide what i love so i can fit in, or do i hide my identity so i can't be pushed out? calling myself aromantic feels right. the term fits me like a glove. but people are saying im a danger to them. theyre saying that my behavior is harmful to the community. theyre saying that i am a threat. theyre telling me that i dont deserve to be part of it.
i dont know what to believe anymore and i wish i could just disappear.
I know this is a culture ask, but I wanted to take my thoughts up here. I am so sorry, anon. You didn't do anything wrong, and your identity isn't worth the hate you receive. Seriously, other aromantics shouldn't be doing that--we're meant to support each other, not divide the community.
Liking romance is valid, weather it's fictional or not. You're not harmful, you're not a threat, and you're certainly not a predator. You deserve so much better from the community. You deserve to be open about your identity without hatred.

Aroace culture is when your friends never forget that you're aroace, but also never leave you out of the "hey LOOK at this picture of a pretty person!!" bc they remember that you get strong aesthetic attraction 🥰

We’re not “just friends,” we’re friends. 
Stop defining friendship as less than romance. Stop defining romance as better than friendship. 
Friendship is enough, friendship is beautiful and fulfilling and good. Friendship isn’t less than. No type of relationship is better than another.

Image description: Three graphics, one of the ace flag, one of the aro flag, and one of the agender flag, each rotated at a 45-degree angle. Overlaid on each graphic is the text, "The A is not for FUCKING ALLY"

You know, if I had to describe my experience as an aromantic in one word, I think I’d go with “alienating”. Let me explain:
Imagine you’re aro and watching TV. There some kind of SciFi show on and they are debating the personhood of an AI.
The AI shows curiosity and a thirst for knowledge. They have desires. They have strengths and weaknesses. None of this convinces the doubters.
The AI makes friends. They take up hobbies. They talk about their hopes and dreams for the future. Surely this is enough to relate to them as a person? It’s not.
The AI is shown to fall in love. This is framed as the ultimate proof, the one thing that must humanize them even to the staunchest denier of their personhood or else that person is irredeemable.
You change the channel.
There’s a children’s cartoon on. “What is this?!” the villain cries, pointing at a couple. Their inability to understand the romantic love between those two is framed as stemming from the fact that somebody so deeply evil simply cannot understand something as pure and good as romantic love.
You change the channel.
There’s a sitcom on. Two characters are discussing a third character. “He’s really not that weird,” says one character. “He hasn’t been in a relationship for [x] years!” the other refutes. Cue the laugh track. The implication is clear: If he’s not in a relationship, it must be because he’s too weird.
You change the channel.
There’s a Christmas movie on. The main character is a successful businesswoman. She’s shown talking to her friends and family regularly. “You need a man,” her mother says as they bake together. The daughter denies this. The rest of the movie is all about proving the mother right, as suddenly her career, her friends and her family are framed as not being enough for her to lead a fulfilling life.
You change the channel.
It’s some show aimed at young teens and tweens. “Ew,” one character comments as the idea of them having a significant other one day is brought up. This is treated as a sign of their immaturity.
You turn off the TV.
Your experiences aren’t enough to humanize a non-human character. You’re the villain. You’re a weirdo. Your life is incomplete. You’re immature.
You’re tired.
There’s a reason it was an aro who coined the term voidpunk.
