Hey, I was the one who originally proposed the circle MOGAI flag and the rainbow encompasses everyone. for example, there is purple in the ace flag. and white shows the same "emptiness" as black. Don't worry, aros and aces are definitely included in all of those flags.

kveylet:

Alright, I appreciate you reaching out to me about this, but black in flags represents very different things from white. Black is not there to represent any sort of ‘emptiness’, and though I know you meant that to be a sort of blanket term or something, it hurts a bit that you associate aces/aros with emptiness.

More examples are under the cut bc it’s going to be a bit wordy

Hello!

We are a new network for aromantic spectrum and asexual spectrum fans of Les Mis. You can meet people and discuss your ace / aro spectrum headcanons, or anything else you want!

A few rules:

  • You need to be aromatic spectrum and/or asexual spectrum. Unfortunately, we will not accept any allies as this is a safe space for asexual and aromantic spectrum fans.
  • You need to post at least a noticeable amount about Les Mis, though it needn’t be your main fandom.
  • You need to have a decent tagging system, at least for potential triggers.
  • You have to fill out this survey
  • Follow Nat and Camille (okay, you don’t have to, but it would be nice. We’re cool people, I swear. Plus there may be updates and stuff).
  • Follow this blog
  • REBLOG THIS POST

Perks:

  • Friends and stuff!
  • More aro/ace spectrum people!
  • Headcanons we can relate to, yay!
  • People will reblog your selfies and promo you, and that alone is an awesome thing
  • We’ll probably do some livestreams of Les Mis versions sometimes

Acceptances and all that jazz:

  • We don’t want to turn anybody away, but if this gets a lot of interest, we’ll have to do acceptances in waves.
  • Those waves will probably be in groups of 10
  • The survey really doesn’t have an impact on whether or not you get in. Everyone gets in, as long as you follow the rules we have posted here.
  • We’ll send you a message saying that you’ve been accepted, and we;ll give you a little place on the network page.
  • ARE YOU EXCITED? GET EXCITED!

That’s it! Please consider joining. We look forward to meeting you!

My sister just doesnt get it

'Oh Caitlin, you shouldn't put a label on your sexuality, you're only 16' My sister told me when i told her I'm Asexual. retreating to my bedroom i open a new tab a search 'what does it mean to be Asexual' clicking the first link a phamflet appears 'Quick Facts' it reads. going through the facts i reach the end 'Asexual People May:' the very last one struck a cord. as i read it over and over in my head tears fell from my eyes 'Be of any gender, age, or background.’

My favorite metaphor for being ace: It's like everyone is in this fandom, they're rabidly obsessed with this show, and you have no idea why. You can totally watch the show and be like, eh, it's ok, and still not understand why people always talk about it, and seem like they'd rather be watching than anything else in the world. Me and my ace friends referred to allo people as 'the fandom' before we heard the term allo. (:

asexualadvice:

That’s a pretty good metaphor, actually!

I’d like to over-extend it by saying that some aces can even really enjoy the show, and still not see a picture of the actors and immediately feel like they need to watch it. And some aces can hate the show. xD
