Default A request: state your gender and sexual preference

I have been noticing how confusing it can be here, with so many lesbians, gay men and bi or pansexuals. When a new person posts, it can be so hard to tell if it's a woman or a man, b/c many queers are now married, even legally if they are so lucky.

I dont know if anyone is confused as I am. But it would be great to have new people start their posts by clearing this up. Poly is confusing enough. Stating one's gender (male, female, transgender, genderqueer etc etc), and sexual preference (straight, bi, pansexual, gay, lesbian, married, living together etc) sure would make at least some things clearer!

Thank you for your consideration of this request.

Female - Lesbian, more accurately probably bi...married (in some states anyway)

I'm actually equally confused, should be some kind of handle tag for it...

Married to a woman too, I know.

I am a cis-gendered female, married to man, but divorcing. In a serious LTR with a transgendered female, for 20 months now. We are both pansexual. That is, attracted to people of any gender, male, female, or somewhere in between.
