Yeah, I agree with you It's quite rude to describe yourself as pansexual if you're attract to a transgender person, for me a Ftm is a man and a MtF is a woman and that's it, I don't care about the genitalia x) But I prefer to describe myself more as Pan than Bi because I can be attract to a nonbinary person and I guess that's not the case for a bisexual ?nightnightnitrite said:I think being asexual is definitely a thing but being pan sexual, not so much. I think pansexual is another way to say bisexual. The oxford dictionary definition for pansexual is "not limited in sexual choice with regard to biological sex, gender, or gender identity" and I think that definition means a more "open/woke" bi person. I think my reasoning comes from me believing whatever you present as and feel you are is what you are no matter what you were anatomically born with and if a person likes boys and girls that should include everybody regardless of gender identity or what they were born with at birth. I get defensive over transgender people and I think making pansexual separate from bisexual is acknowledging they aren't a 'complete/correct' boy or girl. I am a cis straight female so I might be in the wrong but I know some of my transgender friends feel like they will never looked at as the same as a natural born male or female and this just helps that narrative. If anybody has any other thought or opinion on this I'd love to hear it!
Ooooh I didn't remember demisexual was a thing but I guess that would be me x)western_heart said:I like pansexual as a label.
I consider myself pansexual because I like the colors(sarcasm)
It's more precise than bisexual IMO, does a better job of including my attraction to nonbinary people.
that's what some trans people are going for, though
Relatable, have you looked into concepts like demisexual and grey asexual?
I'm not a big fan of increasingly specific labels, but this definitely is a thing
