    I came out to my lesbian boss today,

    I have noticed a lot of people

    that identify as pansexual are only attracted to people by their personality and not at all by peoples looks. I'm honestly really attracted to some of the physical traits of ALL genders, as well as personality.

    OK, for those of you who haven't studied the differences between sex and gender, let me throw out some definitions for you: 1. Sex refers to a person's reproductive organs: male, female (and others, but let's start simple). 2. Gender refers to how a person identifies his/her...

    Gender is nothing but a social construct.

    Sometimes I act and dress in a manner some people would consider feminine, other times I act/dress masculine, and sometimes the two combine and overlap. I may have "female" anatomy, but ever since I can remember, I've been rebelling against the whole gender stereotype.

    I've always known I was a little bit different.

    In the LGBT community, I've never found much support. I feel as though being gender fluid is the best way to describe myself. Most days, it's like being a very fashionable man. I'm glad someone else knows what this is like.
