some people say there’s a red string that connects fated lovers
psa don’t look at the notes bc there are so many people completely missing the point that these are non-romantic strings of fate and making jokes about where the red string “must be” and it’s making me really angry bc we can’t even have a good artistic representation of aromanticism without people desperately grasping for a romantic interpretation somehow
like the artist has specifically requested that people stop making this about their fandoms and romance bc it’s a personal piece about aromanticism
its great i loVE IT??? we need more aromantic… anything rlly and this is really beautiful!
Oh, it’s about aromanticism?
Sorry, I’m a heartless romantic fuckhead, who makes everything in life about the intimate romantic relationships shared between humans. I’m here to tell you that your aromantic notions are completely invalid, stupid, and worthless, and you should accept romance into your life.
Well, at least, that’s what Aromantics seem to think that people making romantic commments about this art are saying.
Fuck off. If people want to take your aromantic art, and think of a romantic connotation, that’s their fucking business. The message YOU intended is what’s important, and that doesn’t mean you have to force it down other people’s throats.
Remember that art is interpretive? It’s attempting to portray a personal emotion through visual medium. The outcome has a message, but in the end, interpretations will be different.
Who are you to deny people their romantic interpretations of a piece of art, just because its original intention was aromantic? Leave them the fuck alone. Same for the artist. Both ways, don’t tell people “You are only allowed to interpret my art one way!” because that’s censorship. Instead, make sure the piece is labeled correctly, on your deviantart, on your tumblr, wherever. Make sure people actually know what your piece is about. Then people can have their interpretations, but can also understand what the piece is about.
It actually is kind of a dick move to tell people how to interpret art. Especially because the art doesn’t have a visible name, it leaves it open to be discussed. If the piece was names "Aromantic" or something like that than yeah it’s clearly about Aromantics (Which the artist did tag it Aromanticism so it is about Aromanticism). It is about Aromantics but you can’t force an interpretation down someones throat unless the artist statement clearly explains it, which in this case it did not so much
