The 30 Day Asexuality Challenge – Day 8

8 ) Do you believe there should be asexual pride? What do you imagine it being like?

Yes, I do there think there should be ace pride. Right now, simply promoting visibility and awareness is an example of pride because of its lack of presence and acceptance in the mainstream conscious. To be openly ace in whatever way, be it a pin, a black ring, or a label on your forehead is, to me, an example of showing one’s pride about being asexual. In whatever way someone stands up and says, as a matter of fact and with confidence and self-acceptance, “I am what I am”, they are showing pride.

That being said, I currently lack an obvious asexual symbol with which to express pride. I know I said earlier I don’t want symbols to do the work of advertising my orientation for me, but I still like the idea of symbols as an expression of self-pride. I’m not really a pin or badge type of person, but I do like the idea of the black rings. I need to look more into getting one.
