Holmbo Posted February 22 Share Posted February 22 Something I thought about just now is the connection society put on romance and sex as signs of adulthood and how that can affect teen aro aces. I definitely felt this problem as a teen. I felt pressure internally and externally to have a boyfriend and have sex before a certain age because if I didn't it would mean I had failed somehow. I suppose lack of visibility for aro and ace is one of the reasons but I also think every teenager feels an inherent drive to grow up and is looking for everything they feel will accomplish that. So maybe it's hard to totally remove the sense of pressure. What are your thoughts and experiences about this? 4 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
