- aro/ace-spec (ex: aro and lesbian demisexual)
- aro-spec/ace (ex: ace and pan greyromantic)
- aro-spec/ace-spec (ex: gay acespike and demiromantic)
- aroace with a third/additional type of attraction (ex: bi alterous aroace)
For example, the above angled aroaces may choose to identify as a lesbian angled aroace (1), a pan angled aroace (2), a gay angled aroace (3), and a bi angled aroace (4). As in the fourth example, some angled aroaces base their additional label on a form of nonromantic, nonsexual attraction, such as platonic attraction, sensual attraction, aesthetic attraction, alterous attraction, or any combination.
The term angled aroace is similar to oriented aroace (which is a term that generally only indicates aroaces with a third/additional type of attraction), and it was created by Tumblr user Black-Aros on March 24, 2019 in response to claims that oriented aroace is only for certain aromantic asexuals.
Flag[edit | edit source]
The angled aroace flag was posted by Black-Aros on March 24, 2019, shortly after announcing the term. The yellow stripes were chosen as an opposite of the blue of the oriented flag. The light brown gradient beneath them meant as a visually-appropriate parallel to the gray gradient of the aromantic and asexual flags.
