“Hey, I want to send a bit of inspirational message to everybody in the page, from my own personal experience.
I know many of you feel frustrated because it sometimes looks like trying to raise awareness is useless or that people turn deaf ears on us. Or maybe you’re scared about talking of asexuality on social media because you fear acephobia.
Yes, that happens, unfortunately, but I want to tell you that since I started posting about asexuality on social media I have received messages from people who needed help to figure if they were asexual and thought I could help them. And in another occasion an ace friend turned to me to talk about an episode of acephobia she had experienced.
So, if you ever feel it’s not worth it, remember awareness really helps people, that we can create a safe space for other aces. Hold on and be strong!”
