hello!! today is the last day of Asexual Awareness Week, so ive made some pride flag decorations to commemorate!! yes, aromanticism is included in the week as well!! i went with the flag with the white stripe as opposed to the yellow, as its (seemingly) more common, and yellow can be a very visually bothersome color for those on the autistic spectrum.

some things to remember about aromanticism:
- aromanticism is a lack of romantic attraction
- this does not mean that aromantic people dont experience love, they definitely do! its just not romantic in nature.
- aromanticism is also on a spectrum! the spectrum includes grayromantic (experiencing romantic attraction very weakly or very rarely) and demiromantic (experiencing romantic attraction only to someone youve formed a deep personal bond with)
- romantic and sexual attractions dont always match up! someone can be aromantic (not experiencing romantic attraction) and still have a separate sexual orientation (so does experience sexual attraction to whatever gender(s) their sexuality dictates)

(i am not aro, but tried my best to write this section accurately! that being said, if you are aro and any info here is incorrect, worded badly, could be improved, etc, please feel free to comment or send me a note!! i want everything here to be as accurate as i can make it!)

i love all of my aromantic followers, and i hope yall had a great week!! Aromantic 1 -pixel Heart- Aromantic 1 -pixel Heart- Aromantic 1 -pixel Heart- 

(also this is free to use as long as its on deviantart!)

is there a flag for when someone is asexual but heteroromantic?

not one that ive made, im afraid!! ive decided not to do every combination, it would be so many!! (the only reason i did a different one that is both ace/aro is because they do have separate flags, as opposed to other orientations having the same flag colors shared between sexuality and romance, with romance generally represented as a heart with the romances flag colors placed inside the sexualitys flag if the romance and sexuality arent the same, like so). there is a hetero pride flag tho!! this is the one ive seen most commonly
