hi! The first friend made at uni (and my best friend and current flatmate) is ace. They often say that they are glad to have another ace friend and it is one of the things we bonded over first. I've recently come to realise that I might not be ace (I'm still queer tho) and that it was maybe just internalised homophobia instead. How do i tell them? I'm afraid they won't value my friendship as much anymore or will be less happy about us living together...
Hi! If you’ve bonded over other things since then, my guess is they probably won’t be too upset by it? The only thing I think I can really suggest is to try to deliberately phrase it as a positive thing. As in, try to emphasize the fact that you’re learning more about yourself rather than the fact that you no longer use the same label as them. Most likely, they’ll follow your lead with regards to their reaction. They’ll probably still value your friendship and be happy about living with you regardless of how you identify! Good luck, I hope it all goes well!

You know what I love about the aro and ace labels/communities? That there's an acknowledgment that sexual and romantic orientation is a spectrum. I feel like that's something that isn't talked about enough in other communities. you have people like a bisexual woman that’s only ever been attracted to two guys and Harry Styles but is in love with every woman they meet yet they feel like they can't claim the lesbian label. A guy having had the hots for a baseball teammate in high school but never again blinking twice at a man doesn't have to be bisexual. Stop making labels so strict and learn about SAM cause some of y'all need it.

[ID: The Tom and Jerry pie meme. In the first panel, Tom, labelled “me, an ace”, looks at a piece of paper. The second panel shows that the paper says “an uplifting internet post”. In the third panel, he looks up excitedly. In the fourth panel, he’s hit in the face with a pie, labelled “it assumes I personally find "being sexy" to be a positive/desirable trait for myself”. End ID]

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.

So I understand the “minors can’t be ace” argument. I really do. Obviously it’s normal to not feel sexually attracted to anyone as a 12 year old.
At the same time
I knew I was bi in high school when I was, you guessed it, a minor.
For me, the whole argument sounds too much like “oh you’re too young to know whether or not you’re gay so it’s obviously just a phase!”
Couldn’t be me.

Also, the OUTFITS. Michiru's cute little dress with the pretty print that gives such "I read books in coffee shops and have my own fairy garden" vibes and Haruka's "I'm the most stylish butch around" silk purple button-down shirt with the sleek pants and the way the purple contrasts so majestically with her blonde hair like-
We love a stylish gay couple.
