i think the Gold Star Gay community is uncomfortable about abrosexuality bc it reminds them of all the homophobes who tried to convince them their identity is "just a phase". so like with bisexuality you see a lot of erasure coming from within the queer community
but abro erasure is apparently really powerful stuff bc many/most people have never even heard of it??
if a homophobe ever tries to use abrosexuality as a reason why your sexuality might be "just a phase", please tag me in
i will go to their house and rapidly fluctuate sexualities until they fall into a coma from all the loud noises and flashing lights
no one knows why the abro flag looks like a watermelon. but it's delightful and summer-y so everyone just goes with it
the term abrosexual originates from old stage shows when performers would invite a 'random' audience member onto the stage and "abro kadabro" turn them gay
as an abrosexual, all i can say about conversion therapy is
the current abro flag is summer themed but, hear me out, we should have a different one for each season
the abrosexual pride flag was featured in gear of war 5 though. iirc the game had pride flag options for capes your character could wear and they were just labeled “pride flag 1” through “pride flag 19”
i’m guessing either someone on the gear team actually was abro, or else the media intern whose job it was to research pride flags just found it and was like, “finally a sexuality just for bros”
@red I didn't know what abro was until I looked it up just now. That's how bad the erasure is, that I — a bi person who also experiences erasure from both straight and gay communities — didn't even know what it was!
I stand by my abro sibs! Attraction that changes frequently is as hell!
The flag is delightful and now I want 🍉
@red I need to go to more stage shows....
@red i really need to learn to stop being like "isn't that just how everyone is???" when i find out new terms that i identify with
"a bro sexuality? Are there more of them?"
@red this is my personal flag lmao
