It's been around 3 years that I've identified as ace. I never really know how to celebrate it. I don't attend the pride events. I feel like I don't belong. I have friends in LGBT community. It's hard to relate though.

If you're interested in going to a pride event, you absolutely belong!! 🖤🤍💜 Also, in terms of celebration, my and my other ace friends gather around with garlic bread and cake to play D&D to really cater to those Ace Sterotype/Memes. We find it hilarious.

Not an ace myself, but I very much get that feeling.

Coming out of the shadows
2 awards

I have no problem saying I’m asexual or on the ace spectrum. The problem is that people refuse to acknowledge it as a real sexual identity. It’s “just a phase” “you haven’t had good experiences” you know the story. I imagine for men it’s even harder because men are supposed to be these highly sexual beings. “Maybe you’re just depressed?” But does it really matter? What’s your problem with how I feel? How I identify? What’s your problem accepting my choice as if your opinion matters more than my own inner self? It’s not a real thing to people. It’s a cause of trauma or something that you learned. We’re pushed into the shadows as if our identity isn’t a real state. Asexuality doesn’t celebrate the coming out experience as someone who comes out gay, bi or trans in the lgbtqq+ community. In a culture of sex as the focal point of any relationship that has always existed asexuality is a waiting game for others. I’m lucky I have good people that accept and celebrate me as I am. But new people want to ask a 1000 questions like an interrogation. I fear that meeting someone who says they accept my sexuality will later question it. Which is why I have opened up myself to dating polyamorous people as a way to invite emotional connection but allowing that person to seek sexual connection and pleasure with another person invested in that part of a relationship. Not only am I on the ace spectrum but I’m highly independent and enjoy time with myself. I don’t want my own kids. I don’t believe marriage is a true commitment nor a necessity to prove love; and I don’t believe cohabitation is always healthy. Thanks for reading if you did. Just saying things out loud.
