is a term that has been growing in recent years as a way for people to
better identify their sexual identity. The word Pansexual is derived
from the Greek prefix pan, meaning "all". The term is reflective of
those who feel they are sexually/emotionally/spiritually capable of
falling in love with all genders. Definition:Pansexuals have the capability of attraction to others regardless of
their gender identity or biological sex. A pansexual could be open to
someone who is male, female, transgender, intersex, or
Do Pansexuals like everyone?
Pansexual identified people have the physical/emotional/spiritual
capability of falling in love or being with someone regardless of their
gender. This doesn't mean they like everyone, and some Pansexuals do
have physical preferences. The identity is used merely to express the
openness and fluidity to people of all genders.
Aren't Pansexuals really just Bisexual?
not to be confused with Bisexuality in which "Bi" denotes two genders
(male & female) and "Pan" being "all" is open to people who fall at
all points or even outside of the gender continuum.
How is Pansexuality different from Polysexuality?
Pan means "all" while Poly means "many" and so there are some similar
overlaps, a Polysexual may be attracted to some gender variant people
but not have the capability or desire to be with some others. Pansexuals
are open to any person regardless of their gender or sex.
