“Pansexuality” – A Short Narrative From a Young Writer
Person 1: “I don’t really know how to tell you, but I guess I should just come out and say it.”
Person 2: “You know you can tell me anything, best friend.”
Person 1: “I know.. it’s just a little bit hard… but I’m pansexual.”
Person 2: “So. So, basically, you’re interested in cookware? And to be more in detail… pans?”
Person 1: “No, that’s not what it is.”
Let’s talk about pansexuality and what it really means. Lately, it’s not only an issue to the straight community but also amongst the LGBT+ community. I’ve met a lot of people who said that pansexuality is just like bisexuality and that people are only looking for attention.
Those exact people who said that are also the individuals who warranted a petition to remove the “B” and “T” from LGBT+.
How boring would the “LG+” community be? Not only for the title, but also for the community. We need to make bisexual and transgender people feel involved and wanted. Which leads to this brief explanation of pan:
Adj. not limited in sexual choice with regard to biological sex, gender, or gender identity.
Bisexual: love boys and girls.
Which you’d normally think is pansexuality in a nutshell, right?
Pansexuality is basically that, but more “evolved”, one can say.
I mean, what if you’re non-binary? Trans?
Neither a boy nor girl.
That is where pansexuality comes in. A pansexual person can fall in love with anyone, including those who identify outside of the “boy and girl” spectrum.
Pansexuality can get confused with demisexual. Though demisexual is more focused on personality than looks. Yet pansexuality is more focused on who the person is on the inside, rather than gender.
PSA: Pansexuals are not sexually attracted to cookware.
