Question of the Week: April 17th, 2018.

If you could send a message back in time to the earlier ace community, what would you say?

If I could change the way the ace community developed, it would be by introducing the idea of different levels of attraction way earlier.   There are still many people who have heard about asexuality but not aromanticism for example. I think that if at the time the ace community was starting to become more involved in the wider queer community there was a lot more discussion about the different types of attraction and this became more normalised, there would be many ace and aro folks that felt less othered today.

Do you have any advice or warnings for the early ace community?  Or positive messages you would like to share with them?

If you would rather answer this question to a different social group, I’m curious about those answers as well.

  1. I would say, “We exist. The day will come when our numbers are taken seriously. Hold on.”
