How do you feel when people think the A in extended LGBTQ+ acronyms, like LGBTQQIAA, stands for allies?
A few months ago I came across a LGBTQ+ group whose explanation for the longer acronoym included that one A stands for asexual and the other allies. This time aromantic people were erased, but I’ve also seen ace people erased by a similar narrative. I usually feel pretty frustrated and freeze up. I want to voice my opinion and email them, but have yet to bring myself to do it. I think the authority of such a large website plays into my silence. I also really don’t like confrontation. How do you feel when people say the A stands for allies and if you feel negatively like me, how do you deal with it?
