LaReine Posted November 8, 2020 Share Posted November 8, 2020 (edited) After I finished Loveless today (great book btw) I had this thought. It's a little bit jumbled and I hope you understand what I'm trying to say. Is it just me or is aro representation really missing in media? I mean, even ace is not properly represented. But when you happen to stumble over an aro character, they are typicially aroace, rarely allosexual or somewhere on the acespectrum yet not inheretly ace. Like, nothing against aroaces.... It's just that when the rare case of aro representation happens, it's to 99% paired with asexuality. As an bi-graysexual aro I would like to have a little bit of that representation too. The struggle of being caught between ace and allo. The struggle of being aromantic but not asexual. Maybe also a demiace aro for example. Or a demiaro ace. In Loveless you have two side characters who are aromantic bisexual and gay asexual which I love but the first one does not appear as important as the latter. Anyways, I like that they exist and that it's not the typical black and white picture that we are normally presented with when aros and aces get representation. I hope that made sense...
