    2 genders 3 sexualities. Pansexual just opens a door to a whole host of non-conventional sexual identies

    It's quite easy to not believe in pansexuality when you're mistaken about the (false) dichotomy of gender.

    A uni friend came out as a pansexual this week what I understand is that he's attracted to anything with a pulse even trans people. This got me thinking that it was pointless to come as pansexual because you can choose to be straight/gay/whateversexual whereas the other sexualities bar bi you have to make a choice and stick with it. Is it attention seeking? My closest friend said that it's an attention-seeking thing? I'm not so sure.
    sorry stopped reading at "even trans people". Trans people are people too. :/
    (also, no it's not "attention seeking" - if he falls in love with someone of one gender then someone with a different gender then people would be like "is he confused???". By coming out he is telling you that he knows who he is attracted to and he is not having to stop himself from loving someone just because of their gender)

    It's not attention seeking.

    There is usually some confusion between Bisexuality and Pansexuality. Bisexual means you're attracted to ANY and ALL genders, as opposed to the assumption that because there's 'bi' in the word it means 'two'. There are more than two genders, and it's more of a scale rather than discreet 'types' (But that's for a different topic). Pansexual means you're attracted to someone REGARDLESS of their gender.

    Found something that probably explains it better than I would:
    sexuality is nothing to do with gender whatsoever.

    I'm not one for naming names, but I think a casual read through this thread would reveal a few rather narrow-minded people. I prefer those with broader horizons. :proud:

    Sometimes I wonder if all these definitions are always needed? A Pansexual person-so can be attracted to anybody regardless of their gender identity or sexuality. Aren't many people like that to some extent? A gay man might not think he'll be attracted to a transgender man, but he could fall in love with one even if he doesn't decide he's pansexual. Or maybe not even a bout love, he could have a sexual attraction to one. Doesn't mean he would be attracted to ALL transgender men? Does that make him pansexual.

    A bisexual woman might be attracted to a woman who's trans, but not ALL women who are trans?

    A woman who thinks she's straight might fall for a lesbian woman.

    Or does pansexual really mean 'I find EVERYBODY attractive!!' (I think that's pretty much impossible though).

    Maybe I just don't quite understand
