Guest Posted August 7, 2019 Share Posted August 7, 2019 Where to begin… Well, i am sure someone already said something about it somewhere, but here i go. First of all, I have nothing against QPR's , or even the label itself. But I believe QPR's are not immune to amatonormativity. I feel like sometime , we present QPR's as "more than friends". Peoples say "well, i would never do that for a friend but i would for my QPP" and frankly? I hear the same thing… from alloros and their romantic crush. And of course, i heard some "well, we can still be in a relationship ! It don't have to be romantic ! " Some peoples call them their "platonic soulmate" . I don't like that soulmates thing, and i know a lot of aros don't either. I am not too angry about it, but i am not sur i am 100% comfortable with that word. I just saw someone say " soulmates can be platonic ! don't exclude us ! " and like.. please no... idk. We yell at allo aces for saying "we can love too" but… some aros are doing exactly the same thing. (not just for QPR's i noticed. Can be friendship or familly. We put someone's value in how and how much they can love and i am not sure i like it ) ------------ Also something i would like to discuss , a lot of aros are firm on saying that QPR are not friends , like, never ever. but i heard some aros say that sometime, friendship and QPR can overlap. To be honnest , i sometime have trouble seeing the difference between the two, but that's just my two cents as someone who never had a QPP. So i would like to ask peoples who know more about them. It make sense to me at least. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
