About This Tribe

For allies and actual Aromantic and Asexual pals
  1. What's new in this tribe
  2. i'm reading the bone people by keri hulme and one of the main characters is asexual! it was written in the 80s but it's still pretty progressive for that time... it's more of adult fiction tho so for anyone who wants to read it, tw for SA, child abuse and explicit language
  3. only coffee jelly is worth his time lmao. some aroacespec folks dont really enjoy the rep saiki gives them because they said hes emotionless and reinforces the stereotype that aroace people are heartless robots but he literally shows emotions and also appreciates his friends; he just rarely shows that affection [just like me fr] i dont get how people can dislike him. hes a chill dude
  4. omg i watched an episode of saiki K and HOOOOLY shit that's aro/ace coded hot girl: *has a crush on him* saiki: get off me you weirdo
  5. any aro/acespec coded characters can do! its fine if their orientation is not directly established but the way they think and behave can buy into the aro/ace coding. such as elsa from frozen for example. shes pretty darn aro/ace coded. saiki too despite it being so fucking close to it being canon lmao
  6. How explicit does it have to be to count as canon? XD I recently read the book O Pioneers by Willa Cather. I'm pretty sure it was written before the term "asexuality" was invented, but it's... about as explicit as it can be in describing the main character (Alexandra)'s aromanticism/asexuality? She's repeatedly described as having never been in love or seen people as more than friends or workfellows, and by the end of the book she (spoiler) marries her friend. Their marriage is directly framed as being in opposition to the romantic relationships between other characters in the book, and they explicitly designate their relationship as a friendship and talk about that. Even in the movie, they don't add a whole lot of romantic framing to their relationship. I don't know, it seems very very aroace, at least as an a-spec person reading/watching it, even if not to all the allos who will ship a male and female character if they so much as look at each other (let alone marry each other). XD
  7. cheerful aces needs more rep tbh. imagine having a sex repulsed ace character who jokes about having sex but they knows damn well theyre never going to do it and their jokes can get so bad to the point the people around them questions their sex averseness
  8. i hc kenneth from 30 rock as asexual, heteroromantic the vibes just feel right idk man not rlly
  9. a thread for discussing aro/acespec headcanons. other queer hcs are also allowed! be sure to tell us where this character is from and you can include an image of them as well !disclaimer if you disagree with someone elses headcanon then feel free to discuss this with them and respect eachothers opinions. keep the conversation respectful questions for your headcanons where are they on the aro/acespec? why do you headcanon them as aro/acespec? how does your headcanon change the relationship between the characters relationships? what are some other lgbtq and general headcanons you have regarding this character?
  10. a thread to share yalls favorite canonically aro/acespec character[s]! be sure to share where the character is from; whether itd be from a show novel or video game. add an image of them if you want to other canonically queer characters are also allowed! but this thread mainly sticks with sharing canonically aro/acespec characters
