its almost over but happy ace awareness week!!! some reminders:
💜 aces have always been and will always be lgbtq+
💜 yes, even straight aces and cis aces
💜 aces are not cringy, bored, attention-seeking or homophobic
💜 aces are not all white
💜 aces are not confused kids. talk to elders in the community and read up on a-spec historical figures!
💜 aces are not selfishly taking a piece of the nonexistent resource pie
💜 aces face unique struggles that must be recognized. the community's not oppression olympics
So it's Ace Awareness week or smthn, so here's a shoutout to all my ace peeps who are sex positive. It's never talked about when we want sexual relationships but how fucked it feels to not experience sexual attraction.
So shout out to all of those who get it and understand. Sometimes its very confusing to be ace and that's alright~
♣️ GRAY ASEXUAL ♣️
To feel rarelly sexual attraction or only under very specific circumstances
Umbrella term for anyone falling between the allo and ace spectrum
I (finally) got a binder and learned a thing or two so im about to tell you a thing or two.
This could get long so im hiding the post under the cut also feel free to repour with more things
That's all the things I know for now! I hope this was helpful and if you have advice feel free to repour with additions. :-)
happy ace ACCEPTANCE week time for a little snippet of history
i remember a few years ago the ace community using the card suits to represent sexual/romo attraction combos. here's what i remember:
((reblog this and correct me or add on with little snippets of ace community history!))
Less recognized, but still used sometimes: ace of diamonds for demiromantic asexuals and ace of clubs for grayromantic (and other aces!)
Also, many aces wear a black ring on the middle finger of their right hand to show that they're ace!
message to wlw / nblw [esp. questioning]:
hey!! if you aren't often attracted to traditionally feminine women / the typical heteropatriarchal model of a woman, that is okay. if you find yourself most attracted to gnc / butch / masculine-of-center / etc. women/nbs, that does not mean you're "straight in denial" or "lying" or "faking" or "secretly into men" or anything.
it just means that you are often attracted to a specific kind of person and that is okay. ♥
Okay I'm so sorry for the spam but I'm going to go fix the url in my about page, and this should be done...
Anyone else having problems linking things? My sideblog @nblm is struggling, and multiple links just lead to "nblm.waterfall.social/[what i'm trying to link]" instead of going to the actual site I'm trying for...
some testing of links using my own accounts on this or other sitesnblm timeskipp bungostraydogs Timeskipped
So under the cut I tested some links to other sites and the ONLY one that worked was the link to my AO3 account, which I copypasted the url of into the link box. So maybe that's the solution? let me check. If this works, it's probably something about the https at the beginning and/or the slashes???
your link to your main timeskip links to nowhere? what happened?
Oh, weird! I'm not sure what happened, I didn't change my url or anything... Maybe it got messed up when I edited something else? For now, I'll link on this post and check out what's going on ^^
EDIT: seems that this link doesn't work either, I'm so sorry. I'm going to elaborate more later but... yeah it's not working out rn :(
Okay, it looks like there's a problem with links in general, so I can't fix it afaik! Everything I link is going to nblm.waterfall.social/[what i'm trying to link], if that makes sense? The page it's trying to go to doesn't exist, because I'm not trying to link to it... The one right there is going to waterfall.social/timeskip.waterfall.social, which also doesn't exist, so I don't think it's a problem with my linking it? I think it's a waterfall problem...
