I’m so angry and annoyed
I just read my character bio in class for the main character of the movie I’m writing and one of my main goals about it was aromanticism and how it’s ok but without pointing at it and going “THIS IS OK” it’s just about an aromantic woman who doesn’t end up with anyone
It never mentioned it in my bio at all I just ignored the entire thing but I guess the lack of romantic plot in my bio was obvious so my teacher asked me about romance
So I admitted that the main character was aromantic
The ENTIRE CLASS banded together then to (good-naturedly, no one was angry or w/e) convince me to have her and the lead guy fall in love at the end.
Phrases thrown around included “if I saw the movie and they didn’t end up together I’d be annoyed”, “people want romance and romance is sexy”, “I’m sure people are aromantic but no one wants to watch a movie about it”, “you don’t want them to be boring and asexual”, “no one will believe/associate with/buy a story about a 30 year old woman who doesn’t want to get married unless she ends up in love anyway”, “something has to have happened to her like a traumatic incident with men” and basically everything else you can possibly think of
But even pushing aside all those stupid ignorant remarks one or more of which hurt my feelings personally, HES THE CEO AND SHE WANTS HIS JOB. I WILL NOT WRITE A STORY WHERE THE WOMAN GIVES UP HER CAREER GOALS FOR A MALE
my parents came over the other day and for some reason we just sat around watching youtube videos together
and I can’t remember exactly which video it was or even really what it was about but I guess a guy was having problems with his girlfriend??? honestly it’s annoying how I can’t remember what it even was
but my dad kept, through the whole thing, going “oh yeah women are crazy” “honestly that’s the only way to deal with women”
OH I remember it was the adorable OkGo video about the little boy and his time machine who got involved in confusing girl miscommunications
he kept saying things like that “women are not understandable” “haha no way out of that bud”
and then we were watching House of Cards and at one point Frank’s like “it’s the hot flashes isn’t it?” and Claire’s like “Get out” and I’m shaking my head like “dude that’s the same thing as saying ‘oh it’s your time of the month isn’t it’” and my mom was like “yeahhhh” and we were all shaking our heads wisenly
and my dad, I guess missing our conversation?, went “oh yeah that’s when he’s like “oh is it your period” and she says “no” even if it IS but you’re not supposed to ASK because men are NEVER allowed to ask”
and during another part this girl just like, randomly climbed into the bed of some guy that was sleeping and my dad went “girls can do that but if a GUY does it she calls the cops”
I said “no I’m pretty sure even girls can’t do that” and dad goes “yes they can”
I don’t know if he even noticed?? that the only other people there were girls??? and neither of them were laughing???
dude i p much had the same revelation not too long ago. like i felt like i should be romantically attracted to some people but im just not?? bc yeah im making my own label so much longer and more ridiculous;;;
we’re legitimately just the same person at this point
I was just thinking about it and I’m probably demiromantic
this is getting a little out of hand tbh “sex-averse asexual poly-demiromantic” haha but w/e it’s not like I have to go preaching that to everyone
I’m just thinking, is it normal for people to feel romantic attraction to random people on the street or in a coffee shop? I feel incredible aesthetic attraction to random people but is that romantic?? I feel like I literally cannot even begin to imagine being in a relationship with someone until I get to know them; I can’t really picture or want a romantic relationship based purely on looks. But when I see someone who’s really aesthetically attractive, I do get warm feelings and want to be around them and have them notice me. Is that romantic attraction or something else?
I keep considering that I might be aromantic, but I strongly believe that if that were the case, I wouldn’t want a committed romantic relationship, and I do.
my friends and I are making a semi-spoof crossover rp with harry potter and we made up our own West Coast US magic school and we didn’t even try at all with the house names or making original houses it’s just the hogwarts houses with funny names and different mascots/colors
But I’m so proud we changed Gryffindor Lions to Evandor Mountain Goats and can’t you just SEE gryffindors as mountain goats I swear to god
