“People don’t realise that aces have actually always been in the community. We were just classified in other groups because we didn’t have a name or label.
I have a personal example of this:
Back when I was teen a friend would show me pictures of “hot guys” and exclaim “isn’t he so sexy?”
Most of the time I didn’t get it and I would just start agreeing so he wouldn’t balk at me all, “what??? Really??!” When I said no.
His logic??? I must be pansexual.
If I had the word back then things would be different.
At least I know now and I’ve been feeling a lot better since!”
