Not aro animals


Recommended Posts

Looking through the topics on aro pride animals made me realise we seem to be taking quite a few of them.

we've got most of the birds, we've definitely taken the frogs and other amphibians. We took cats, we took aardvarks and we have a whole host of mythical creatures.

Are there any animals though where you just think, no, this creature just isn't aro.

For me the only ones I can think of are flamingos (Which seem to be associated with love for some reason I cannot divine) those small yappy dogs that strange women keep in their handbags. They just seem like the animal embodyment of someone continually telling you you'll find the right person someday.

Thank you for that mental image, now I picture a chihuahua demanding to speak to the manager 😅

Penguins for sure, still an animal of the alphabet mafia but they're too famous for pairing up for life. Adorable though.

I reckon flamingos get the love thing because they're pink. That's got to be it right?

Doves

that's fair

I really don't like the fact that doves get this reputation for being this very pure bird, just bleach a pigeon and you basically have a dove, they aren't that impressive.

It bothers me how people view a lot of animals as pure or cute when they are basically a ‘cleaner’ version of another animal. Such as butterflies vs moths and red squirrels vs rats. One makes people go ‘awww’ and the other ‘ewwww’ like why.

ferrets don't feel aro to me either

I reckon ferrets should be ace because they have destroyed the sexual desire of a sizeable number of yorkshiremen. not aro though, ferrets do have a bit of romance about them.

swans definitely seem romantic for some reason. I guess there is a bit of supposedly pure or beautiful animals get romantic connotations. So swans and doves are romantic but the potoo isn't, which is a massive shame.

Swans pair up for life. So maybe that's part of the romance. And also the association of lakes as romantic settings. Because of this I don't think ducks are aro either.
