  1. Nope. Series are easier to watch, because they come in smaller parts xP TPBM is out as aro to their family
  2. I've heard something about icecream and pizza? Not 100% sure tho xP
  3. I would be able to help with that as well, since I'm a native German speaker. I mean, only if you want the help, of course I'm sorry I haven't been online in quite some time, but I'm really glad to see that we've found a lot of new sources in the meantime, because those will help us for sure. This is a really huge project, but I feel that we can do it, especially if we basically just take everything @Magni posted and put it in a Wikipedia format.
  4. I'm from Germany. We're mostly known for our history (WWI, WWII, Nazis...) but nowadays Germany's a great country. Most people are very accepting and open-minded. A weird thing Germans do is that we don't show any national pride (Nationalstolz) except for sports events. This is mainly because of our bad past with being proud of Germany (*cough* WWII *cough*). It also means that Americans are just plain weird to Germans. Life as a German is fairly easy but also stressful. Easy because we're a pretty free country with good healthcare and schools and all that. Stressful because the most common German values include punctuality ("Fünf Minuten vor der Zeit, ist des Deutschen Pünktlichkeit"/Five minutes early is a Germans punctuality), order and fast quality work. Something you should know is that not all Germans wear Lederhosen. That's just the south. As a person living in the north of Germany, I've almost never seen anybody wearing them. Most German stereotypes are about Bavarians. Still, most Germans like to drink, eat sausage and potatoes and drive faster than 130 km/h on the Autobahn (the German highway).
  5. I can't really remember most of my dreams, except for those that are really strange. For months I always had the same dream and another time I dreamed the same dream like twice every week. Those have always been in first person and mostly just sight, with a bit of background noises. I couldn't talk myself -- which might've been good because I always died in the second dream alongside my family.
  6. Those are all good sources that I frequently use as well (especially the Guardian article). Another site I know of would be what it means to be aromantic by the Insider. It is a bit focused on AroAces, but also gives a good general overview concerning AlloAros and aromantism in general. In case you do decide to tackle the task of starting a Wikipedia page concerning aromantism, this might be a good source. Psychology today also has an article. https://scarab.bates.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1283&context=honorstheses talks mainly about asexuality, but also heavily focuses on amatonormativity as well as on the spilt attraction modell and QPRs. The author mainly cites tumblr and AVEN amongst other sources, but this might be more accepted as a source. I hope this helped a bit! EDIT: I just looked over the Wikipedia sources site and it does say that websites aren't allowed as sources, so AVEN directly is out. If we manage to find people using AVEN as a source in a secondary paper there should be no problems. In other news, I would be willing to help with Wikipedia, maybe translating the English into German. I don't know yet how much time I'd have for that but it seems like a great idea so far.
  7. It does not originate from any ace sites. Thanks! I'll be sure to do that! It's not. Because there aren't any. As I've already said several times. That's exactly what I'm talking about. Thanks! Exactly!!! in short: either you start doing the same thing as what I'm doing @Mark or please stop complaining and misunderstanding my posts. Thank you very much! From now on, I won't reply to you anymore, since I'm just repeating myself.
  8. "aro stuff" would be like what is aromantism and what isn't aromantism. You don't need links for that. Again: It won't have anything to do with asexuality. Also, I like using memes to explain stuff, but I would most likely make most of them myself -- as I already do. And I distinguish that by saying stuff like you don't need to be asexual in order to be aromantic and many aros can still have relationships without romantic intimacy.
  9. You must have misunderstood what I was saying. I was talking about putting more aro info stuff up on LGBTQ+ sites, not aroace information. By doing so it may help them start to distinguish Aros and Aces, since I would be talking solely about aromantism.
  10. It is mostly difficult to find aro stuff in LGBTQ+ places because many don't think aromantism exists/it's a weird kind of straight/etc. Personally I'm on a few LGBTQ+ sites and always try to include aromantism, but that's often difficult to make visible because of arophobia. Therefore it's easier to find aromantic stuff on Ace sites, since aces face similar problems and because of aros and aces often getting tied together. I do plan to do some more aro information stuff on LGBTQ+ sites, but I don't expect anything to come from it. If there were more aros on such sites, we would be getting more visibility and acceptance, I guess, but since there aren't many aros on such sites, many aros don't want to join, unless it ties in with another part of their identity. But it has been getting better on some sites, with aros being mentioned and once or twice even ASAW.
  11. Definitely arrows. Also, pizza, ice-cream and frogs for some reason.
