To go further with this point, I have heard some people calling themselves omniamorous, where they might have formerly said pansexual. So, who gets the omni word, the polys, or the people like me that don't care how your genitalia is configured, and that will fall in love with or have sex with males, females, transpeople, genderqueers and people with ambiguous genitalia, who are either femme, butch or androgynous?
Love withers under constraint; its very essence is liberty. It is compatible neither with envy, jealousy or fear. It is there most pure, perfect and unlimited when its votaries live in confidence, equality and unreserve. -- Shelley
