one good thing that comes from noone knowing we exist is that i can do whatever i want to show pride when closeted and noone would even think anyhting of it

like, they dont know we exist, let alone our flag/colors

My therapist knew about the aro flag, as she asked about my aro pride pin in one of our sessions. But yeah, most people just think I like the colors or something.

Someone: What are your favorite colors

Me: Green and Purple

My parents are really great about my gender stuff but I get the feeling from when I explained ace (in a very This is Other People way) that they won't be very happy

Sameeeee, my background is literally balls with the aro flag colors. Family wise, not a single one has any idea that I am aro. Friend wise, they deduced it once I told them that I was aro, cuz they know I am sneaky showing things. I am amazed that so very people actually suspect about pride colors, given that it is not thaaaat hard to look into the internet. Maybe it is because they go nop-nop and actively choose to ignore it.

Yes It is amazing my phone lock and home screen is the ace and aro flag and no one knows.

Us having the aro flag as a lock screen seems really common! I'll make sure to think about all the other sneaky aros out there the next time I look at my phone.

Another thing, that's both good and bad, is that we technically don't have to lie about anything. I can say that I'm not in a relationship and that I don't want one, and no one draws the conclusion that I'm aro. It can be pretty nice to not be questioned all the time, so I guess invisibility is a super power as well as a curse.

Since everyone's talking about the colours, I'm only guessing this site isn't grey. Aros seem to be more stuck on the colour than anyone else, and it just *has* to be the one I have the most trouble with and that makes me feel pretty rotten.

I'll add you to my to-be-thought-of list! It's getting long, but that's fine since aros occupy most of my thoughts anyway..

I think most allos just don’t think about it, or don’t think about allyship, unless its brought up to them. Kinda weird, but I get it in a vague sense?

My way of a little closeted pride has been my drawers of craft stuff. Whole load of small stuff packed away in a cupboard so few other people see it, and I have slowly been painting bits in so the front of the drawers are in aro colours.
