asexual and aromantic visibility is So Important because I’ve never seen a single aro/ace self-discovery story that didn’t include some variation of the phrase “I thought I was broken.”
Here’s one that doesn’t, instead I thought everyone else was broken:
I didn’t have internet access until after highschool. At some point during my journey through the public school system, I learned that pre-fixing an “a” to something, negated it or implied the opposite. I started calling myself asexual without knowing it was an actual thing.
My classmates made fun of me (the budding thing), and thought I was weird for saying it.
I thought my classmates were animalistic freaks for attempting to breed with each other. There was clearly no benefit and every possible risk, therefore they must be incredibly instinctual, like how are they even human.
Then the internet taught me that asexuality was a thing, and so are all the other sexualities. I accept that, but I still find human reproduction incredibly fucking weird.
And you know the best thing about this movie is they could have made Felix be the nice guy, be the understanding guy, the only guy who’s kind to Ralph, but they make him just as prejudiced as the other game characters. He wasn’t mean to Ralph per say, but he wasn’t nice either, and definitely didn’t want to get involved with the trouble that followed Ralph around.
It’s only after Felix gets treated badly himself that he starts looking at how Ralph is treated by others, how Ralph is treated by him and changes his attitude.
Because that’s the thing, you don’t have to be the bad guy to be prejudiced. Sometimes you can be the nice guy who doesn’t do anything for or against, and sometimes that’s just as bad.
This movie. Ugh.
Reblog if you have read fan fiction better than some published books
Help me prove a point
I have never reblogged anything faster.
Unfortunate for the books, but speaks loads about the quality of some fan fics
Oh, hell yeah. Anything by incandescens can stand on my bookcase any time.
