I got a really good job by the beach at a vacation home. It offers room and board but it’s two hours away from home and I can’t drive. Tonight is the last night that I actually live at the home I’ve known for so many years. I’ve got this summer, college, then the rest of my life, and I’m so terrified and sad to be moving on into independence. I’m really just a baby who will I even be when I’m not able to look forward to seeing my family every night and unwind. Lemme just drink my tea and cry myself to sleep see y’all in the next phase of my life - Cook ~ ~ #ace #asexual #asexuality #asexualpride #acepositivity #asexualpositivity #aro #aromantic #aromanticpride #aropositivity #aromanticpositivity #demisexual #demiromantic #greysexual #greyromantic #acespectrum #arospectrum #aspec #lgbtqia #lgbtpride #saga #gsa #loveislove #lovewins
As an official spokesperson for the aroace community let me just say we are slurping that “loving and supporting lesbians, bi-thren, enbys, aces, and aros” juice all day long - Cook ~ ~ #ace #asexual #asexuality #asexualpride #acepositivity #asexualpositivity #aro #aromantic #aromanticpride #aropositivity #aromanticpositivity #demisexual #demiromantic #greysexual #greyromantic #acespectrum #arospectrum #aspec #lgbtqia #lgbtpride #saga #gsa #loveislove #lovewins
I’m on a two week “vacation” touring national parks in the West of the US the only think keeping me from murdering my family is that the day after we get home all my siblings immediately go to summer camp while I stay home alone - Cook ~ ~ #ace #asexual #asexuality #asexualpride #acepositivity #asexualpositivity #aro #aromantic #aromanticpride #aropositivity #aromanticpositivity #demisexual #demiromantic #greysexual #greyromantic #acespectrum #arospectrum #aspec #lgbtqia #lgbtpride #saga #gsa #loveislove #lovewins
Alterous attraction is a recently coined term mainly used by the aromantic community to specify their experiences. It describes the “grey area” in between romantic and platonic, primarily a desire for emotional intimacy - Cook ~ ~ #ace #asexual #asexuality #asexualpride #acepositivity #asexualpositivity #aro #aromantic #aromanticpride #aropositivity #aromanticpositivity #demisexual #demiromantic #greysexual #greyromantic #acespectrum #arospectrum #aspec #lgbtqia #lgbtpride #saga #gsa #loveislove #lovewins
Sorry for sort of disappearing for a few days. Did you know it’s illegal or something to set up service towers in Yellowstone National Park - Cook ~ ~ #ace #asexual #asexuality #asexualpride #acepositivity #asexualpositivity #aro #aromantic #aromanticpride #aropositivity #aromanticpositivity #demisexual #demiromantic #greysexual #greyromantic #acespectrum #arospectrum #aspec #lgbtqia #lgbtpride #saga #gsa #loveislove #lovewins
Happy pride month! A crappy self portrait of me, celebrating my ongoing discovery of my sexuality, gender, and myself in general. I started working on this piece earlier this month, but went through some kind of slump, but I managed to finish it yesterday 🤗 I decided to include two versions, first pic is asexual flag in the background, second one has gray asexual flag in the background. . . . #pridemonth #lgbtqia #lgbt #asexual #grayasexual #greyasexual #aromantic #grayaromatic #greyaromantic #grayace #aroace #acespectrum #arospectrum #digitalart #demigirl #agender
A gorgeous drawing by @wakeup.hugdog.haveagoodday in response to another follower being upset about aphobia.

So these are from the parade. I didn't get to share them since I forgot to log in. It was mine and Z's first Pride and we snuck out to do it. Kinda a crappy experience for us since we were dealing with a lot. However we met a lot of amazing people and it's definitely one of our favorite memories! Also yes we hung out with Lance for a bit 😊 (I can't take pictures for shit and I looked like a dried piece of shit. I know.) -Ty
I have absolutely no internet connection which is why my posting has been so spotty the last few days. Some tips on coming out, these are really helpful especially for acespec people - Cook ~ ~ #ace #asexual #asexuality #asexualpride #acepositivity #asexualpositivity #aro #aromantic #aromanticpride #aropositivity #aromanticpositivity #demisexual #demiromantic #greysexual #greyromantic #acespectrum #arospectrum #aspec #lgbtqia #lgbtpride #saga #gsa #loveislove #lovewins
Ah I missed this account’s two year anniversary due to no internet connection. Exactly two years ago on the asexual awareness day during Pride Month I began this account to interact with my newfound community. I absolutely love being able to educate others, learn more about my orientation and the greater LGBT+ community, spread love and pride, and be a positive force through this platform. I’ve continued to develop my understanding of myself and share my experiences with you guys. El is an amazing friend who has been vital to this account and to my personal growth, and she has been with my since the beginning (day 5 to be precise) of this important part of my life. I know I’m getting all sappy about just an Instagram account, but to me this has been a way to participate in the asexual community in a meaningful way. Thank you all for being a part of this positive force. End emotional rambling. - Cook ~ ~ #ace #asexual #asexuality #asexualpride #acepositivity #asexualpositivity #aro #aromantic #aromanticpride #aropositivity #aromanticpositivity #demisexual #demiromantic #greysexual #greyromantic #acespectrum #arospectrum #aspec #lgbtqia #lgbtpride #saga #gsa #loveislove #lovewins
THIS is a fantastic comic by pinkdiamondprince on Tumblr that I think is a great analogy for ace and aro-spec people pinpointing that part of their identity!! It made me really excited cause it's so accurate and re-assuring.

A common argument against asexuality is that someone saying that they don’t experience sexual attraction somehow sexualizes everyone else in the world. This reasoning is used especially against teens identifying as ace as if that sexualizes other kids. Here’s the facts: your labels only address you and has nothing to do with anyone else. How you id is your choice, and if you’re still going through puberty and could possibly have yet to experience sexual maturity you can still identify however you want. No one else can dictate your labels. If you later change how you identify that doesn’t prove people right, it only means you’ve gotten to know yourself better/have developed as a person. You are not “too young” to have autonomy and self awareness. - Cook ~ ~ #ace #asexual #asexuality #asexualpride #acepositivity #asexualpositivity #aro #aromantic #aromanticpride #aropositivity #aromanticpositivity #demisexual #demiromantic #greysexual #greyromantic #acespectrum #arospectrum #aspec #lgbtqia #lgbtpride #saga #gsa #loveislove #lovewins
I’m wearing my asexual flag shirt today (yay ace day) and while getting breakfast the cashier complemented my shirt and said she was ace too! So shout out to the Tropical Smoothie Ace Cashier for making my day - Cook ~ ~ #ace #asexual #asexuality #asexualpride #acepositivity #asexualpositivity #aro #aromantic #aromanticpride #aropositivity #aromanticpositivity #demisexual #demiromantic #greysexual #greyromantic #acespectrum #arospectrum #aspec #lgbtqia #lgbtpride #saga #gsa #loveislove #lovewins
Hey! Coming out as questionning (aro spectrum) for pride month! It's been a year or so since ive been questionning my romance and still havent figured it out despite finding new and new labels through the year! But that's ok! . Some questionning positivity for y'all: It's ok to question your sexuality/romance and/or gender. You are valid. It's ok to not find a label that match you. It's ok to not care about it. It's ok to not bother questionning it. It's ok to spend time questionning yourself. It's ok if you end up finding what it is but arent comfortable with the label. It's ok to not do research about labels. It's ok to do so. It's ok to be precise. It's ok to be confused. It's ok if it takes a long time. It's ok if it the time was short. It's ok if at the end you were just cisgender binary allosexual/romantic heterosexual/romantic. You are still valid and we love you. It's ok if at the end you have lot of lgbt+ labels on yourself. And everything in between or everything i forgot to mention is also ok. You are valid, questionning is ok. I love you. . .

Grayasexual day is for grayromantics too! I'm sorry you don't have a special day... but on aro day we will be ending pride with a flood of positivity! ~ Milly 💋 • • • • • #aro #aromanticism #aromantic #arospectrum #arospec #aromanticspectrum #grayromantic #pridemonth2018 #pride 🌈 #demiromanticism #demiromantic #lithromantic #frayromantic #aegoromantic #recipromantic #aroflux #cupioromantic #bellusromantic #quoiromantic #idemromantic #postrubor #requiesromantic #caedoromantic
A lot of hatred towards our community comes from a misunderstanding of what asexuality is. People usually define asexuality as “don’t like sex” which is absolutely not true. It is a lack of sexual attraction which directly addresses sexual orientation, not sexual preferences. It’s important to be able to correctly define asexuality and understand that there are so many ways to be ace, not just being sex-repulsed/averse - Cook ~ ~ #ace #asexual #asexuality #asexualpride #acepositivity #asexualpositivity #aro #aromantic #aromanticpride #aropositivity #aromanticpositivity #demisexual #demiromantic #greysexual #greyromantic #acespectrum #arospectrum #aspec #lgbtqia #lgbtpride #saga #gsa #loveislove #lovewins
Use whatever labels are most comfortable. If you’re not 100% sure where you are on the ace spectrum it’s totally alright to call yourself asexual. Your labels don’t have to be completely accurate all the time and they’re easy to change when you’ve figured yourself out a bit more - Cook ~ ~ #ace #asexual #asexuality #asexualpride #acepositivity #asexualpositivity #aro #aromantic #aromanticpride #aropositivity #aromanticpositivity #demisexual #demiromantic #greysexual #greyromantic #acespectrum #arospectrum #aspec #lgbtqia #lgbtpride #saga #gsa #loveislove #lovewins
Liquid watercolours!! Though I am preferring my dry ones. I really should share one artwork.....I'm not feeling confident but pride month is getting me pumped up! 🌈🌼💚✌ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ #♠ace #acespectrum #pridemonth2018 #pridemonth #lgbtqapride #lgbtqa #driedflowers #art #artsupplies #watercolours #watercolour #aro #arospectrum #spreadlove #🌈 #❤💙💚💛💜 #lgbt #pride #pansexual
Oh look it me I’ve actually decided to identify as aromantic pan-alterous. Alterous attraction is a recently coined term describing the area in between romantic and platonic, specifically a desire for emotional intimacy. Because I relate more to aromantic issues that’s the part of my identity I choose to focus more on. - Cook ~ ~ {credit: tumblr} {edenartfactory} ~ #ace #asexual #asexuality #asexualpride #acepositivity #asexualpositivity #aro #aromantic #aromanticpride #aropositivity #aromanticpositivity #demisexual #demiromantic #greysexual #greyromantic #acespectrum #arospectrum #aspec #lgbtqia #lgbtpride #saga #gsa #loveislove #lovewins
My brother suggested “marrow aro” Sorry for the confusion over the previous (since deleted) post :) - Cook ~ ~ {credit: tumblr} {foxflightstudios} ~ #ace #asexual #asexuality #asexualpride #acepositivity #asexualpositivity #aro #aromantic #aromanticpride #aropositivity #aromanticpositivity #demisexual #demiromantic #greysexual #greyromantic #acespectrum #arospectrum #aspec #lgbtqia #lgbtpride #saga #gsa #loveislove #lovewins
Reblog (or like!) if you platonically say "I love you". I had this really wonderful group of friends that said I love you whenever someone did something adorable or stupid or just so typically THEM. It was a way of saying how much we loved each other unconditionally, flaws and quirks and all. ~ Milly 💋 • • • • • #pridemonth2018 #queer #gaypride #platoniclove #platoniclifepartner #platonicsoulmate #aro #aromantic #aropride #aromanticpride #lgbt #lgbtq #lgbtqa #aromanticlove #loveislove #lovewins #amatonormativity #lgbtqcommunity #lgbtqacommunity #lgbtcommunity #lgbtpride #arospec #aromanticspectrum #arospectrum
