  1. This poll doesn't really cover what I want at all... I want "purely platonic friendship", yes, but the views I have on friendship/what I want from a friendship generally are a bit different from how allo society conceptualizes friendships. I would also be interested in a sexual relationship, but I do not consider it "romantic coded" and am not comfortable with checking of an option that implies that I want anything of the sort, given that I'm very romance repulsed.
  2. Fair enough. I was just asking because I wasn't sure if I should take it, or if I'm outside the audience it's intended for.
  3. Wait, so by "without romantic orientation", are you including or excluding aromantics?
  4. Oh, in that case, how about Yami Yugi/Atem from Yugioh with an aro flag (however you want to incorporate it, be it an actual flag or a shirt or just the background or whatever)? Or Jounouchi/Joey, if Yugi's hair is too complicated. Ofc you don't have to draw either of them if you don't want to, but I'd love to see them if the idea appeals to you!

    It's this symbol, which is indeed related to Nicholas Flamel: Although tbh if I were to get it as a tattoo, I think I'd want a bit of a fancier interpretation. Tattoo art, yknow. Anyway, I want it on my left shoulder as an homage to Alphonse Elric: Al is my favorite fictional character of all time (although Kitty Pryde is a pretty close second). He really means a lot to me, and his character in particular helped me get through some tough times, especially when I was younger. He's part of the original inspiration for voidpunk, and I honestly still look to him as a role model. I've been wanting to get a tattoo in his honor since I was about 15 or so.

    I've just got regular old earrings, but someday I would like a tattoo of a flamel on my left shoulder. (Edit: I do also dye my hair a lot. Currently, my thing is lime green bangs, which I've had for the past few years.)
  7. I have severe ADHD, ARFID, inappropriate sinus tachycardia, and anaphylaxis.
  8. Aaaaaaaaanyway. Good post, Magni. I think this has some really good points and I do think we should try to work on these things.
  9. I... You do understand what the purpose of politics is, yes..? Politics decide the policies and systems that structure our lives. Everything that has to do with the way we live within our society is a political issue. I can understand being tired of "republicans vs. democrats" or "Brexit vs. EU" type politics, but politics also includes things like "How much of our taxes should go towards education?" or "Should our town sell the town green to real estate developers?" Everything is politicized because when our lives are inherently built within a net of laws and policies and decisions, changes to those things don't just magically spring up overnight via wishful thinking. Everything is a political issue. If we want rights for ourselves, that's a political issue.
  10. 1. Ancient Egypt, so I can Know Things 2. Modern Egypt circa 1820, so I can kill Leonardo from 1820 3. Spain just prior to the colonization of Puerto Rico, so I can kill my own ancestors 4. Rococo period Versailles, so I can wear fancy dresses
  11. I think you might be confused as to what this website is for.
  12. "Asexual &/or Aromantic" sounds good to me tbh, or at least as good as you can really get in a situation like this- I'm sure people could nitpick for days, but finding something that gets the job done is the real point. Also, speaking as an allosexual aromantic, who heavily advocates for allo aro rights and for us to have spaces we're comfortable in... I, personally, do NOT like the idea of saying that there needs to be a specifically aro group, with a non-ace organizer. It just feels kind of... Exclusionary, but in reverse this time? Yes, it's important to have safe spaces for allo aros/aroaces who identify more with the aro side, where we're not just treated as an add-on to asexuality, but I really don't think we should go so far as to push out our ace siblings. And especially because there are so few allo aros with an offline presence, and because community organization takes work- It'd be nice in theory to have a group run by an allo aro, sure, but for practical purposes? Where are you going to conjure up an allo aro who's willing and able to run a group? I'd much rather have an aro group run by an aroace than no aro group at all. And ideally I think the best thing overall would be to have a group that's co-run by multiple aros, including both aroaces and allo aros.
  13. Yeah, ya mama's soft. And what's with this whole weird aro seme/uke thing? The fuck?
  14. I... I am aro-allo, and I literally invented voidpunk. Voidpunk is not just for aroaces, nor just for aros in general. Please don't perpetuate the problem of crediting all of aro culture to aroaces.
  15. That's totally fair, but the way you phrased it made it sound like you were defining what voidpunk, as a whole, is, which would be incorrect and could give the wrong impression to people who have never heard of voidpunk before. As I said, if these things are part of your voidpunk experience, great! But they're not universal, so I just prefer that they not be presented as such.
  16. Oh, that's a good idea, I never thought of that. I'll give that a shot, thanks for the suggestion!
  17. Yeah, I did indeed create voidpunk as @Coyote said, and uh... I don't mean to be rude, but none of the things in your post are accurate. That's not to say that none of them could share overlap with voidpunk, of course. If you identify as voidpunk and those things help define you, that's great! I'm glad. But none of that is at all what voidpunk is about. Please don't spread misconceptions, as I've already seen a lot of people wildly misinterpreting what voidpunk is to such a degree that it begins to be harmful to those of us who first formed the voidpunk community. The posts Coyote mentioned ought to help give you a better understanding of what voidpunk actually is.
  18. I feel like "more than friendship" isn't a good choice of words... "Different from friendship" or "More emotionally intense than friendship" would be fair, but I dislike the term "more than friendship" in general because it conveys the sense that friendship is inherently beneath other forms of relationships. That's not cool. I can't imagine anyone loving anything more than I love my friends! That being said, could what you're experiencing possibly be a squish? If so, you're definitely not the only person who experiences stuff like that
  19. Really? Do you really have to bring this discourse here? Haven't we all seen it enough?
  20. The idea that "pretty much all aros" have squishes is blatantly untrue, and extremely harmful. You do not have to experience squishes to be aro. You do not have to want a QPR, a similar partnership, or even just friends in general to be aro. Literally all aromanticism is is the absence of romantic attraction. You don't "need" anything else to be aro, and if anyone tries to tell you otherwise, tell them to fuck off.
  21. I was about 18 when I started identifying as aromantic, but I knew I was different from everyone else in regards to orientation by the time I was 10 or so. I just never knew being aromantic was an option. I thought something was just wrong with me.
