Lately I've been reading a few articles about allo aro erasure in aro spaces (in particular, the articles linked by Storm_leopardcat). Naturally, it makes me question how the allo aro feel on arocalypse. Do you think that aroaces overshadow yout voices here ? What can we do to reassure alloaros that they are part of the community and can open thread that specifically adress their unique issues ? What are the things we should avoid, as aroaces, to prevent the erasure ?

Oh god, where do I start with this? Well I dont think that being aro should automatically be associated with being ace, granted I'm a sexually fluid person, leaning towards allosexual, but also aro. 

I dont think that being allo means that you are just gonna want one night stands and FWBs, ever, or for the rest of your life. I think that's kinda a misconception that goes around. Or that we are too touchy feely or something and dont care about building the emotional connection first.

These are the first that come to mind, I'm not sure what the rest of the stereotypes are but thought I'd share.

I can't think of anything major, but maybe just correcting anyone who assumes that "aspec" means asexuality and asexuality alone, and not making jokes about your lack of sexual attraction in aro spaces. And not doing the whole "ewwwww sex? Anyone who likes that must be really gross" thing that's pretty common in general aspec areas (although I haven't seen any of that here on Arocalypse luckily, so thanks! Keep doing good 👍)
