Pansexuality vs. Bisexuality.
My views on pansexuality are summed up in the follow statement taken from Katawa Grey:
Pansexuality works on the basis that there are a bunch of genders aside from “feminine” and “masculine.” Personally, I take issue with the term pan-“sexual” because this word implies that are more than two sexes. I would much prefer the term pan-“genderal” much more because that actually describes what it is that people under this umbrella of sexuality are attracted to.
There are two sexes three if you count people with both kinds of external genitalia which is why I think that “bisexual” is a much more accurate term for someone who is attracted to people with either kind of external genitalia.
Also, what gets me about this is that once you try and define what gender is, that makes everything so much more complicated.
I identify as bisexual because I am capable of developing attraction for both of the TWO biological sexes. Sex in biology (as it applies to homosapiens) is broken down by genitalia. Bisexual=two sex= penis and vagina= I like both… This doesn’t mean that I only like vagina on those who identify as womyn or that I only like penis on those who call themselves men. It just means I have no problem loving someone whether they have a penis or a vagina. And it sure as hell doesn’t mean I love them BECAUSE they have either a penis or a vagina.
I feel that pansexuality singles out transmen and transwomen in a way that implies they are perhaps less of a woman or man than cismen and ciswomen.
