    • 2020, Angela Chen, Ace: What Asexuality Reveals About Desire, Society, and the Meaning of Sex[1], page 83:
      Asking a person to work on themself to have more sex seems natural and intuitive, but imagine asking the allo partner to be celibate.
    • 2021, Izzy, "Live While We're Young: Aromantic Frienships, Youth and Futures", CAMP Magazine (University of Melbourne), Volume 4 (2021), page 20:
      However, being aro adds another layer of urgency. As we get older, a lot of our monogamous allo friends will find their life partner, get married, and have kids.
    • 2021, anonymous, quoted in "Questions Of The Month", AVENues Newsletters, July-September 2021, pages 14-15:
      I would say that it'd help so much if the ace characters would be explicitly acknowledged by the creators, but this doesn't always fix things. In the case of Jughead Jones, his asexuality and aromanticism were explicitly stated, but that didn't stop people from completely disregarding it, to the point where most fanart and fanfiction of him makes him allo.

allo (plural allos)

  1. (informal) One who is allosexual and/or alloromantic.
    • 2020, Angela Chen, Ace: What Asexuality Reveals About Desire, Society, and the Meaning of Sex[2], page 108:
      Allos might feel infatuated with a new acquaintance or be more attached to their best friend than to any romantic partner, yet they can deny the possibility of romantic feeling because of the lack of sexual attraction. Allos can wave their hand and say, "There are people I want to sleep with, and I don't want to sleep with you, so it's only platonic."
    • 2021, "Will", quoted in "Member Highlight: Multi-Member Question And Answer", AVENues Newsletter, January-March 2021, page 19:
      Then maybe asexuals wouldn't face negative responses ("You're a late bloomer" or You haven't met the right person" etc.) when they come out to allos.
    • 2021, Adam Key, "The Silent A: A Critical Soundtrack of Asexuality", Journal of Autoethnography, Volume 2, Issue 4, Fall 2021:
      Part of why I’m writing this essay is to tell allos we exist, to make them aware of our struggle and our pain.
