raavenb2619 Posted June 27, 2019 Share Posted June 27, 2019 This is something that’s been on my mind a lot recently, because I would have loved to see it growing up, and because Disney seems to be slowly moving towards queer representation. Most (all?) Disney Channel shows involve teenagers who go through the process of figuring out dating and relationships, so if you were a show-runner/writer/consultant, how would you represent aromanticism? Would you have a character that figures out they’re aro, and if so, how would they figure it out? If they came out, how/when/where/why/who would they come out to, and how would it be received? Would you show/mention that aros can have any sexual orientation or even no sexual orientation, and if so, how would you explain that some aros distinguish sexual and romantic orientation in a way that’s appropriate for all audiences? Would you show/mention that some aros find it useful to talk about types of attraction that aren’t sexual or romantic, and if so, how would you go about explaining it? Would you show/mention that some aros can be interested in dating/relationships/qprs/etc, and if so, how would you go about explaining it? Would you show/mention the aromantic spectrum, and if so, how would you go about explaining it? Would you show/mention aromanticism as being part of the queer community, and if so, how? Would you show/mention different online communities, and if so, how? What parts of aromantic culture would or wouldn't you show/mention? What else would or wouldn’t you show/mention about aromanticism? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
