so there are all these pansexuals posting in forums, blogging, and reblogging shit about being pansexual. we need pansexual discourse in order build a community; we need to share our stories and we need to learn from each other. non-binary trans* people may identify as bigender, agender, neutrois, genderbender, genderfluid, genderfuck, genderqueer, pangender, etc. this means that many intersex people are women or men. despite the etymology, bisexuality doesn’t erase non-binary people.
thing is, i see a lot of the same oppressive misconceptions making the rounds, so i wrote this post for everybody who’s interested. this means that trans* women are women and trans* men are men. so don’t say you’re pansexual cuz you’re into “men, women, and trans* people.” when you say you’re pansexual cuz you’re into “men, women, and trans* people,” it sounds like you don’t think of, say, trans* men as men. go ahead and say you’re pansexual cuz you’re into “men, women, and non-binary trans* people.” that’s how many people experience pansexuality, along with being into people regardless of their gender (people experience pansexuality in many different ways). so don’t say you’re pansexual cuz you’re into “men, women, and intersex people.” when you say you’re pansexual cuz you’re into “men, women, and intersex people,” it sounds like you don’t think intersex people can be men or women. sure, there’s a “bi” in “bisexuality”, but there’s also a “pig” in “guinea pig”.

bisexuals experience attraction to people of any 2 genders (or to people of more than 2 genders; more on this later.) 5. many bisexuals are not only familiar with and comfortable with non-binary trans* people, but are attracted to non-binary trans*people. “i love people” just means you’re not a total zoophile and is not a stand-alone definition of pansexuality. your gender expression probably matches your gender, insofar as it makes sense to you. for instance, you don’t have to be attracted to all body types equally.
the “bi” in “bisexual” doesn’t indicate that bisexuals are only attracted to people of 2 genders. however, if “i love people, not just girls and/or boys”** is part of how you discuss your pansexuality, i think that’s pretty reasonable (as in, not problematic). eta: i just wanna add that part of the problem with “i love people” is that it equates all love with sexual attraction. meaning, if you’re a woman and your way of expressing your femininity is to shave your head and go dirt biking– you are expressing your gender. you CAN be attracted to all body types equally, but you can also go ahead and have some physical preferences and still be pansexual.
