ASPEC

Asexual and aromantic spectra, as well as the numerous sexual and romantic orientations that make up each of them, are all included under the word “aspec,” often known as the A spectrum. Conditions may be attached to certain orientations, or there may be no attraction at all. It can also be applied to those who do not categorise their experiences of conditional or no attraction under distinct names.

An aspec is a person who has little to no sexual or romantic attraction. The term “aspec” refers to a group of people that includes aromantics, asexuals, demis, and greys.

They rely heavily on the split attraction paradigm and frequently feel obligated to define both romantic and sexual attraction because they aren’t thought to be compatible, in contrast to people who openly identify as gay or bisexual.

Origin of Aspec

A spectrum is referred to by the acronym “a-spec”.

In late 2015 or early 2016, the Aceing History blog on Tumblr hypothesises, the term “aspec” may have been used to refer to the asexual spectrum.

Aspec Flag

There are many different pride flags that represent the majority of gay identities, therefore it shouldn’t be surprising that there is a flag that a-spec people may fly with pride.

The black and grey quadrants link the aromanticism and asexual identities, whereas the green and purple sections are on the opposite ends of the quadrant, showing that they are different and distinct identities.

Black represents the race community, whereas grey represents the grey communities.

Its three stripes and one plant were meant to resemble the sapphic, achillean, diamoric, and pluralian flags. Aromantics are represented by the green, asexuals by the purple, and people with mixed a- and allo-identities by the grey.

Community

Asexual spectrum

Asexual sexual orientations or those that are closely related to asexuality are referred to as being on the asexual spectrum, abbreviated as acespec. As a large group, asexual identities are tightly related to one another.

Aromantic asexual

The term “arospec,” which stands for “aromantic spectrum,” refers to romantic orientations that fall on the aromantic to alloromantic end of the spectrum or are strongly related to aromanticism.

Additionally, those who do not want their aromantic identities to be further classified or whose identities are inconsistent with social norms, untrustworthy, or unconventional use it. As members of a large group, identities under the aromantic umbrella are closely linked.
