What does a positive response to coming out as asexual look like to you?
We hear about all the horrible things that people get asked when they come out as ace, but less about the good stories, or suggestions for how people should react when someone comes out to them.
As much as I don’t think Every Heart A Doorway is amazingly revolutionary for it’s ace rep, I really appreciate it for having a ‘yeah cool of course that’s normal’ absolutely no drama coming out scene. I would like to see that modelled in more places.
Personally, I’d like people to be positive and curious when I come out to them. I’d like to explain to them what being ace looks like for me, and how it affects the relationships I have in my life.
How would you like people to react when you come out to them? Are their questions you would like them to ask or things you would like them to say? Or would you prefer to not talk about it further and have them do their own homework?
