Spreading the awereness of aromanticism is important.

However making posts about platonic love and relationships and putting an asexual flag on it or tagging it as asexual is not helping. Asexuality and aromanticism are different concepts even though our communities might have close relations and aromantic asexuals exist.

Asexuality is not about romantic attraction likewise aromanticism isn’t about sexual attraction.

This is especially important for allosexual aromantics and alloromantic asexuals.

Read the update! - - - Read from the beginning!

I ended up skipping Friday’s update because I was at a convention and was super busy all weekend, but it’s here now! It was nice meeting everyone who stopped by my table. Hope you had a good time at the convention!

I did something a little bit different with the coloring on this page, so I hope it shows! Also, this officially marks 150 pages of Monsterkind!! Whoa, I’m so happy and excited. Thanks for sticking with me!

So far, Steven’s powers have been:
A bright pink shield
A bright pink bubble
Magical healing saliva

And he is always STOPPING fights, usually peacefully and in nonviolent ways, trying to get both sides to get along and understand each other. Suffice it to say, he is not your typical superhero. In fact, he’s really not that super yet. He’s still on training wheels. And yet he often manages to end conflicts WITHOUT powers or weapons that destroy others.

And I love what this show is doing with him and all of his friends. Especially in a pop culture that is overpopulated these days with “save the world” shenanigans and focusing on powers and shock value instead of being “strong in the real way.”

I’m already proud of this little guy and the small steps he’s made. His journey isn’t one of leaps and bounds but baby steps, like real people.

This week’s wonderful two-parter has set up what the show has been foreshadowing for some while: that Steven, being half Human and half Gem, will forge a path that unites both kinds of beings — a path paved by acts of non-violence, understanding, and compassion. Where his merit and strength as a hero isn’t defined by his powers (which, BTW, completely fly in the face of typical superhero and gender role BS), but instead by HIS CHOICES.

And THAT is the kind of hero story we need these days, IMO.

I’m sick of watching characters save the world from evil.

I want to see characters saving themselves, saving each other — personal journeys about making choices and resolving conflicts, not just slapping “evil” around. Even SU’s plot twists don;t feel cheap. They feel rewarding, because they are always foreshadowed and always recontextualize earlier events that maybe didn’t make sense. They feel planned, thought out, CARED for, just like the characters who populate the world.

Steven’s story, especially given the moral ambiguities brought to the table recently, really has a lot of potential to do these things — to be a personal journey more than typical “destroy evil” stuff — and in many ways, it has already.

I believe in Steven.

i’m not being racist against white people because I honestly couldn’t think of a way to do that? what am i gonna say? “You eat too much campbells soup” or “you can’t handle spicy foods” or maybe “U break too many Iphones”

That explains why he got so buff and wailed on that boulder. Revenge.
