AVEN, the largest Asexual organization and website declined to add an Aromantic forum. Critics questioned the reason AVEN had turned down the forum yet again. A proposed forum hopes to solve this problem and prevent the walling off of the community that the administrators and moderators feared.
The new forum, the A/Romantic Identities subforum attempts to be all-inclusive. A current poll made available to users asks members if they want to rename the Asexual Relationships forum or add a new subforum.
Administrators and Moderators of the Asexual Visibility and Education Network have been resistant to the idea of adding an Aromantic forum for some time. The recent rejection of the idea marks a change from the previous times it was rejected, according to the most recent A Life Podcast.
Vlad and Henrik, the hosts of the podcast, told their listeners that a Romantic Identities forum, which was the idea that was initially proposed, is not the same thing as adding the section that was originally proposed. Forum moderators put up the poll about the proposed new forum or forum change a few days ago.
