Spreading the awereness of aromanticism is important.
However making posts about platonic love and relationships and putting an asexual flag on it or tagging it as asexual is not helping. Asexuality and aromanticism are different concepts even though our communities might have close relations and aromantic asexuals exist.
Asexuality is not about romantic attraction likewise aromanticism isn’t about sexual attraction.
This is especially important for allosexual aromantics and alloromantic asexuals.
The “you need allies to survive” is an explicit threat and a pretty good sign someone isn’t an ally. They’re basically threatening to withdraw their support for your basic humanity and survival if you don’t lick their boots.
Something to keep in mind.
This is a great comeback for all of that “I don’t see race.” BS
AND YOU BENEFIT FROM IT EVERY DAY
We use language in various forms from the moment we’re born until the moment we die. To pretend or argue that it has no power, that it can’t be used to marginalize and oppress, that it can’t be violent, that it can’t be used to murder, is either immensely disingenuous, or completely naive.
Well Tumblr it’s that time of the year again. It’s heart breaking I even have to remind people of this.
As we approach the Halloween season if you have a black cat [especially an indoor/outdoor one] it’s time to make sure they stay inside. Unfortunately around this time of the year people think it’s funny to harass and harm them. It makes me sick to my stomach but some people even go as far as to ‘sacrifice’ them. Most adoption groups won’t even adopt them out during this month. I’ve even heard of people trying to harass them when they see them sitting in windows of houses. It’s horrible and not funny but it’s important to protect them.
So if you or anyone you know has a black cat make sure they are aware of where the cat is. And if you see anyone hurting or harassing them [or any cat!] speak up, they can’t do it for themselves.
