Do you wear an ace ring and has anyone ever commented on it? If not, do you want one?
I bought my ace ring years ago after reading excited conversations on AVEN about ace rings and where to buy them. I rarely wear jewelry and my ace ring now often sits at home out of habit.
One time when I was wearing my ring a gay friend mentioned he liked it. I thought that he might relate to my yearning for community and I explained that it was a symbol for asexuality. He was shocked and said something like, “why would you want to wear that?”
A friend of mine saw one of their peers wearing a black ring on the right hand. They struck up a conversation and asked if she was asexual. She said no and seemed confused and uncomfortable.
