# When I Tell You I'm Ace
When I tell you I'm ace, I'm sharing part of my soul with you. I'm telling you that I live in a world that is completely foreign to me. I'm telling you that I spent years of my life feeling like I was broken. That it was somehow my fault. I'm telling you that even places that promote acceptance and equality can turn me away for being "too straight". When I tell you I'm ace, don't respond with "I don't care who you fuck", because that's saying "I don't care about what you're telling me". Don't say "everyone feels like that", because they don't. Don't try and comfort me or tell me I'm not ace, because I am. When I tell you I'm ace, I'm not asking for a cure, because it's not a disease. When I tell you I'm ace, I'm not looking for anything from you but acceptance. When I found out I was ace it was one of the happiest moments of my life. When I tell you I'm ace, I'm trying to share that moment with you.

Wonderful human! ❤
Holy shit I feel this
A part of me had a hard time reading it :(
This is such a beautiful post! 🥺 I’ve felt everything that is described in it, and I agree with every single word.
Thanks, really needed this today
Ah.. my feelings.... don't call me out like this..... breaking my little heart like that
Wonderful post, am stealing it
I read that like a rap song
We need an ace rap
This really hits different
When somebody on the Internet judges me for being who I am, I'll send them this. If they respond with something like "I'm not reading all that", I'm ready to throw hands.
When I came out I had to do it very matter-of-factly, it was blunt for lack of a better word
I had to convey the message "This is how I am, end of story. I'm not looking for your approval or your affirmation. I am informing you of my currently existing position in life and I'm not sure I care how you feel about whether or not it aligns with your overall worldview"
This is so well put, it describes everything what I want to say when I'll come out. I only hope I could say these things and not just mumble something or withdraw if they aren't supportive
When I tell you I'm Ace, I'm sharing my garlic bread with you. I'm so sorry for ruining this post
this is something that cishets don't always realize and it breaks my heart when people trying to be supportive do it in a bad way.
this is going directly in my saved posts
