"We can’t use A in our acronyms because it allows shitty allies to weasel themselves in!"
Perhaps if the lgbtqia community prioritized and cared more about ASEXUALS than about straight allies, we wouldn’t have this problem.
The A is not for allies. It has never been for allies. The A is for aces. Do not rob actual members of the lgbtqia community of the little representation we have for the sake of fucking straight people.
I had this dream last night that I was reading a newspaper and the front page headline read ‘CLONE SHEEP DOLLY FOUND TO HAVE ACTUALLY BEEN TATIANA MASLANY’ and I turned to my cat (who was having her morning cup of coffee like that’s a thing) and I said “she really pulled the wool over our eyes”
last night a guy said to me “you are very, very pretty” and i said “i know” and he said like patronisingly “you KNOW?” and i said “you think you’re the first person to ever compliment me?” and he didn’t know where to go from there
