“So with pride month I’ve been more vocal than usual about being ace and most of the time I get the “What does that mean?” Or “ what’s that like?” Question and typically my explanation ie not finding people physical attraction or being repulsed by physical intimacy (for me repulsed by that with someone I don’t know, as I’m Demi) and a lot of the time I get responses “oh everyone’s like that” or “I’m like that too” and it makes me wonder and doubt myself and can’t help but feel erased when people write off my experiences as “just like everyone” when I know they’re not otherwise, and I just mainly wanted to vent my frustration to a group of people who totally understand and Maybe hear how you explain it and if that gets a better response, thanks! Happy pride!”
