closeted pride


Recommended Posts

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

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.

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 closeted pride had been mainly just creating stuff online. Now that I hear about how almost nobody reconizes the aro flag, I will see if I can put it on my phone case as well. 

For now though, I will just keep on making word clouds, going on aro tumblr blogs. and dressing up in the colors of the aro flag on valentines day (and of course nobody notices.)

 

I love how everyone sneakily shows their pride!

I made pins out of shrink plastic- one of bubble tea in the aro pride flag colors, green, lighter green, white, and grey near the black tapioca pearls (no one has noticed at all, and I'm glad, as I can just keep it to myself as a little symbol of pride). Another one I made was in queerplatonic flag colors, a slushie-looking drink with whipped cream and a pink cherry, with yellow pink and white as the main colors, with grey near the dark chocolate drizzle at the bottom. They're really small and not that recognizable but I think they're cute and have shown them off to some of the few friends I'm out to.
