Default My label fell off...

and I feel so naked !

...I am curious about something regarding the term 'pansexual'. Looking up definitions of it, I see there seems to be a grey area between bisexual and pansexual.

If a self-proclaimed bisexual woman, is attracted to males who cross dress, but not 'transgendered' people, does that render a changing of the label ? Or not ?

I think "pansexual" is just something invented by people who don't like the term "bisexual", but it basically means the same fucking thing.

For me, I use pansexual because I am attracted to the PERSON not the gender.

I have met some very amazing cool gender-neutral people. One who refers to themselves at "them, their, it"

I find them to be very attractive. But its not a him or a her...

So for me - pan is open and accepting.

Apparently though, according to a quiz I took on OKcupid - I'm bi but slightly more on the gay side

I am a pansexual switch... I'm just greedy

I have never met someone who is gender neutral. I didn't even know there was such a thing...you learn something new every day.
