Holmbo Posted May 13, 2019 Share Posted May 13, 2019 On this board there are always many recommendation threads for aro themed books/movies/shows etc. @Apathetic Echidna made a list earlier of a lot of different ones. I think it could be fun to try to determine a few that could be seen as the ultimate aro content. Things that aro themed but also with very wide appeal. Something you could recommend to any aro and expect them to like it. The way we could determine this is to make a list of some criteria the content should have in order to make it as accessible for as many aros as possible. When we have a list I could ask the different users who made suggestions in various threads to fill in which criteria their recommendations fit and see which ones get the highest score. Obviously these factors wont mean that people automatically will like it. But I thought it could be a fun way to sum up all different suggestions of various content. My thoughts on criteria: No romance (as an alternative there could be romance present as long as it's not the topic of the story) It should be in English (since I think that's the most widely accessible language and it's also easier for people to get the cultural context) No graphic sex or violence (possibly it shouldn't have sex at all since some aros are also sex repulsed) Passes the Bechdel test (or possibly some more nuanced way at judging if well written female characters are included) Diversity (presence of different ethnicites, LGBT+ , dissabilites, what else?) What objective criteria do you think general accessible aro content should have? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
