So on the one hand heteroromantic aces being homophobic is a real problem & needs to stop. Being ace doesn’t preclude anyone from perpetuating heterosexism. It’s really important for hetrom aces to understand that.
And at the same time, it annoys me to no end to see people annoyed with hetrom aces dismiss them as “just straight people who don’t have sex with their partners” — as if “not having sex with their partners” is just some quirky preference and not something with serious, sometimes violent, ramifications. “Not having sex with your partner” is literally pathologized. This monstrosity was just approved. It is not an issue of no consequence. It is not “no big deal.”
And still: hetrom aces, seriously, you need to get it together. For Pete’s sake, quit making those posts that act like gay people are oppressing you.
