      Unfortunate you can't come online, but I'm happy you're gonna have a nice time! Have fun ;3

  2. Gender in Dreams

    It's like gender and sex don't exist in my dreams. In every dream that I remember it's just not a thing I think about or notice etc. It's as if my body is completely sexlessand so is everyone else. All sex characteristics primary and secondary seem to be completely gone. Nobody ever seemed to have a specific gender or at least I didn't know about it. I also think that I've never experienced pronouns being used for people in my dreams. The only actual experience of gender in my dreams was about a spider (not a nightmare, it was a friendly spider) and I just knew the spider was s he. No reason, I just knew it, which was kinda weird for me.
  3. Local Pride Festival

    I was with a bunch of aces at pride and me and some other aros among us were wearing aro flags and we were approached by surprisingly many people who told us they recognized the ace flag, but had no idea what "the green one" stands for. So we got to educate lots and lots of people who have never heard of aromanticism or romantic orientations. And everyone who asked was really nice and interested and glad to learn things. So that's what I/we did at pride to spread awareness. And I can recommend to just be present with a flag or a t-shirt or a sign that spreads awareness. People will see you and people will ask about it which gives you the perfect opportunity to educate What it consists of here is basically a week full of events. I for example to a few talks about queer topics and also something similar to a drag show (but I'm pretty sure there's a difference). Then there are lots of stands from different LGBTQ+ organizations etc. and probably food (I haven't really been there, all we did there was squish ourselves through the crowd while trying to not lose anyone which we didn't succeed at) And of course a pride parade I did encounter people wo laughed at my orientation while I was standing right in front of them, but most people were really genuinely nice and I'm planning to go to another pride later this month with some of the same ace group ALSO WHY DOES YOUR PRIDE COST MONEY??? It's free here unless you want to actually have your own group in the parade or something.
  4. PRIDE WEEK IS SO GREAT SO FAR :gasp: Why are all those aces such adorable small lovable human beings with such a great sense of humor? Also we'll probably be the biggest group of aces who ever walked in a German pride parade :clapping: And I found someone to borrow me their aro flag for it :aropride::arolove:

    P.S.: I'm not on discord for I don't know how long because I currently have no laptop charger.

  5. Hi! Look how much stuff we have in common in our "about" sections! Where in Germany are you? How much German can you speak? I'm German level B1-B2.

      NO WAY! That's a lot in common :gasp: I'm currently living in Hamburg though I'll probably move back to NRW in September. German is my first language, so I'd say I'm pretty good at it ^_^ 

      Assuming that German isn't your first language, where are you from?

      Also that's really good if it's not your first language especially because German isn't the easiest language to learn from what I've heard xD

      Arg, I can't tell if you're poking fun at me or not. Either way, I'm fine with it. I'm currently living in Weinheim.

      My first language is English and I'm from America.

      The articles in German are frustrating is my main problem.

    YELLING DOESN'T HAVE TO BE STRESSING, YELLING CAN ALSO JUST BE SHOWING YOUR EXCITEMENT AND THAT IS AMAZING!!!
  7. The Bundestag, the German parliament, voted to legalize same-sex marriage today ^_^ There are still many LGBTQ+ rights that still need to be fought for (especially when it comes to transgender and intersex people), but this is definitely a step in the right direction :D

  8. CAPSLOCKIA

    OH GOD, I HAVEN'T BEEN ON AROCALYPSE IN A WHILE AND CAPSLOCKIA HAS ALREADY TURNED INTO SUCH A DISAPPOINTMENT. WOW!
  9. I tried to log into discord, but it doesn't send me this location verification e-mail. So if it takes me a while to get back on discord that might be the reason :/

      Yeah works again now :)

  10. Hi, I'm still alive in case anyone was wondering. I just currently have no internet and I am 90% sure that my internet cable must be broken (no, I don't have wifi -_-) and I'm just too lazy to get my butt to the store and buy a new one :rofl:

      Ok, I got a new cable now and it works again :D

    AND THEN THERE IS MY RANDOM (BUT NOT REALLY THAT RANDOM) USERNAME THAT SOME TIME AGO SOME PEOPLE ON AVEN SHORTENED TO PEN AND NOW THAT LOVELY NAME GETS COMPLETELY RUINED BY PEOPLE WITH NAMES LIKE "PENCE" OR "LE PEN" LIKE IT MAKES ME SERIOUSLY CONSIDER CHANGING MY USERNAME, BUT I'M SO USED TO THIS ONE, I LIKE THIS ONE AND ALSO I NEED TO KEEP POOR PENPAPO ALIVE AND NO ONE NEEDS SPACES IN USERNAMES, SPACES BELONG INTO SPACE NOT IN USERNAMES, THERES A LOT MORE SPACE FOR SPACES IN SPACE THAN THERE IS IN USERNAMES WITH THOSE CHARACTER LIMITS.
  12. No, that's aromanticism. The adjective aromantic is aromantisch in German and I think the aromantic as in the person is called Aromantiker (which I can't get used to, for some reason I think Aromantiker sounds really weird )
  13. Red, orange, blue, rainbow goats!

    NONE
  14. CAPSLOCKIA

    WOW PEOPLE ARE ACTUALLY POSTING HERE AGAIN
  15. I think I might wear a pride bracelet in the hope that someone notices it and asks about it, so I can subtly come out to them and educate them and spread awareness. Maybe I'll also tell people not that subtly about it. Who knows, I guess I'll just do what I can and what I'll be comfortable with. (Also maybe but just maybe I could tell a few people about Arocalypse who might be interested in joining... just maybe. I'm not making any promises)
