Well AVEN people are getting all uppity lately about 'annoying things x people say' threads. The aces and aros versions of these threads are just results of sexuals and romantics trying to show aros and aces how they feel having those threads about them. What they don't realise is that we get that every day. We are living that thread. I don't think there's a problem with having a tiny space in this huge world for us to rant about stupid things people say to us. They are taking it completely personally - no one ever said that every sexual/romantic is a terrible person and we hate them all.
So yeah that's why that thread appeared. I just find it confusing as to why majorities can't deal with minorities having even one tiny space to themselves.
EDIT: So the OP asked how aros were oppressed so I showed them that bachelors thread. About how people not wanting relationships have historically literally been discriminated against in the past. Then they accuse me of 'derailing the thread'. This is exactly the thing about AVEN, right? A lot of people on there are just so extremely rude and dismissive. Not all of them, of course. There are some wonderful people on there. But in general, it's just not a welcoming nor friendly community. Open discussion is just not an option a lot of the time.
