atrocious_ar0mantic Posted March 11, 2022 Share Posted March 11, 2022 Are there any other folks who fall under the trans and/or nb umbrella who can really appreciate realizing you were aro? Because I feel like one of the most common transphobic rhetorics thrown around is that “nobody will love you if you’re (insert identity)”. And while this extends to all different flavors of love, most people put an emphasis on the romantic aspect of it. That if you’re not cis, nobody is going to want to be in a romantic relationship with you, or be attracted to you romantically. The benefit of realizing you’re aro or aro-spec though is that you’re much more likely to recognize amatonormativity and it’s negative effects. You’re able to build your own self-worth outside of those standards. And it’s very liberating to divert those expectations entirely, to realize they don’t even apply to you to begin with. Anyone else? 11 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
