I Am Pansexual

Fluidity is key. 2,886 People

    It is so awesome and a relief

    when you find a sexuality that truly belongs to you. To me being pansexual means I don't have to limit myself when I see someone I like. Their looks wouldn't be as important to me as their personality.

    Told a friend that I'm pan tonight

    and her response was, "Oh, which gender that you prefer then?" *facepalm* It doesnt work like that. Sometimes it's sad how little people know about pansexuality. :(

    So, yea. This is the first time

    that I am admitting this to anyone. I don't care about gender. Honestly, this is the first time that I'm admitting this to myself. Until this year, I was a Christian. I was having a hard time believing in some of the values that the bible held, and have finally put that all...

    I haven't told my parents directly

    but I have put subtle hints. And by subtle I mean my Facebook cover is the pansexual pride flag.

    Oh my goodness I am so tired of hearing the

    misconceptions about pansexuality. It is a real orientation and it has nothing to do with pans or other cookware. Pansexuality only applies to people. We don't screw plants, animals or objects. But either way I am proud to be pansexual!! 😊 I also wish they had LGBT flags on...

    Why Don't You Get It? I am Pansexual.

    It's not rocket science. It's not complicated. It's not wrong. I don't care who are, what you've got, or who you are attracted to. I will love you if you love me, I don't see the difference. Love is transparent, it doesn't have any additives. It is what it is. Whoever you are, I...

    Anyone else feels internalized homophobia

    sometimes? Because usually I'm very proud of my sexuality, but I grew up in a very conservative environment and it's not easy to forget all the things you hear your uncles and aunties say ??????

    My Story Is Similar, I Suppose.

    Like many, I first identified as bisexual, unaware that there was a term that much more appropriately encompassed a capacity for love much larger than just "male" and "female." I tend to fall for people on a individual basis, regardless of what gentialia they...

    Soooo... I'm Pan. It feels good to say that.

    One has to remember that as a young teen, as well as a member of an all girls school, this isn't the easiest thing to say. Most people say they are okay with those who are gay, or lesbian, but if someone here were actually to come out, it would cause anarchy. As for Pan and Bi...

    I fall in love with peoples personality's

    and heart not just looks, I believe looks do not define who you are, your heart, soul and personality does, I have no sexuality I have no label, I love whoever steels my heart.

    24 years old and never been in a relationship

    and trying to explain my identity to people is an absolute nightmare! It's always the "You've never dated, how do you know?" "Isn't that bisexual?" Blah blah blah. Have tips on how to explain this? Meeting other pans too would be great!

    Being Pansexual is a little tough

    when you're living in a conservative little country town..... I mean the people are nice and not rude... But, there are a few that get a little aggressive. The worst part is the stares I guess.... Being stared down by people when you're holding your ftm boyfriend's hand is a...

    Chained By My Own Mind

    I actually figured that I was pansexual quite easily. I was attracted to girls so I figured I was lesbian, but I realized I was still attracted to men so I figured I was bisexual. And then I fell in love for the first time with a friend of mine- who was a genderless, intersexed...

    I've known I wasn't straight

    since middle school, and last night, while very quite drunk, I came out to my closest friend. I never came out to anyone before and even though she said it was fine I don't think she's okay with it.

    Ok, I feel the need to address this: PANSEXUAL

    means you're attracted to people of every gender ie. male, female, transvestite, or transgender. It's a sexuality for crying out loud. It DOES NOT mean you don't care about their other features. Their weight, race, age, religion, ect have nothing to do with sexuality nor does it...

    I've always felt a certain way about love.

    That has never changed. But, I have rather realized that I am not straight. I feel like personality matters, that that is the ruling part to fall in love and an important part in sexual attraction. I could label myself with demisexual, pan, heteroflexible or bi or like 30 other...

    Recently just discovered what pansexual means!

    I was always into girls and guys as well but what i am really into-is personality, if someone can make me happy regardless of gender and vise versa then i dont see whats wrong with loving that person and yeah thats about it. Haha!

    Sexuality has never been a problem

    for me. I've honestly never had to put much thought into it. I just enjoy people. I've been in relationships with men and women and never thought about it. (I wouldn't be opposed to a relationship with anyone trans, I've just never had the opportunity.) There was something in...

    I forgot how easily people make assumptions,

    myself included. When I came out as a pansexual one of the first questions someone asked me was if I would have a relationship with someone who is transgender. I was thrown. Of course I would. I thought everyone one would too. Apparently not.
