The Alphabet Soup

A few weeks ago, I wrote a post about the “I” in LGBTQIAP. So this time, I’m going to write about the P, which stands for pansexuality.
No, pansexuality is not a sexual attraction to pans. Let’s get that cleared up.
Pansexuality is similar to bisexuality, but different. Bisexuality is a male or female who is attracted to both males and females. Pansexuality, however, is a person who is attracted to people regardless of their sex. A pansexual person may be attracted to someone who is genderqueer, for example, or a transgender person. A better definition may be this: a pansexual person is someone who is attracted to people on an individual basis.
I happen to think that all people are probably pansexual, because we are all attracted to different people for inexplicable reasons (yes, I know, science says we’re all attracted to people because of facial symmetry and they remind us of our parents…but for me, my attractions are all completely and totally inexplicable.)
Short post. But that’s about it for today. What are your thoughts on pansexuality? Do you identify as pansexual? What does it mean to you/what do you think of my definition? Agree? Disagree? Let me know & COMMENT!!!
