Pansexuality is one of the many ignored sexualities. I got a request asking if I could make a post about pansexuality hate after I made one about asexuality so here I am, more than ready to rant!
Pansexuals do exist!
Pansexuals are not bi
Pansexuals are not attention seeking!
AND THEY DON’T LIKE PANS!!!?!!
What on earth would make you think that there are so many people out there that are sexually attracted to pans that they had to make an entire sexuality of it????
Pansexuals are people who are attracted to people of all sorts. They may find themselves falling for someone of any sexual orientation or gender identity.
Some people don’t understand this because they only think of male and female when it comes to genders. BUT there are many, many, many, many, many more genders.
There are transgenders; people who change their gender from the one they were given at birth. This can be done legally and you can even change your birth certificate in some places.
There are gender queer; people who prefer not to be associated with any gender identity. They may use male or female pronouns but some prefer gender nuetral.
There are genderfluid; people who like to switch gender from time to time. They can do this on a daily basis if they want to. Whether they bind when they like to be masculine or wear a body suit/ padded bra when they want to feminine.
Those are just a few examples.
Pansexuals can also be panromantic, which is similar only it refers to who they are emotionally attached to, rather than physically. You can be panromantic and pansexual, or you can be one or the other, along side with another identification like asexuality or demisexual, or any of the others in fact!
Some people may claim to be bi only because they do not know what pansexuality is. However, most bi people are bi because they’re uncomfortable or unattracted to being in a relationship with people other than strictly male or female (THIS DOES NOT MEAN THAT THEY ARE PREJUDICE OF THEM! ONLY THAT THEY ARE NOT ATTRACTED TO THEM!)
Pansexuals, like any other sexuality, can have a preference to a certain gender or gender identity. You may like trans boys most because you like a butch personality (not that all trans boys are butch) but prefer to be sexually active with female bits. Or you may have a preference for people who identify as a girl. Maybe you like genderfluid people most because you get a variety of attractions. Maybe you like genderqueers because you just do. There doesn’t have to be a reason for any of this!
Basically, everyone should just shut up about other people’s sexualities because it’s none of your business who they like or don’t like in what way or the other? Pansexuals don’t like pans (usually… you never know). Pansexuals aren’t bi! And people need to stop calling them stupid, monsterous, or fake. Why?
“Some people may claim to be bi only because they do not know what pansexuality is.

ONLY THAT THEY ARE NOT ATTRACTED TO THEM!)”
Stepping in to make some corrections here.
The distinction between bisexuality and pansexuality is that for bisexuals, gender is a factor in attraction, whereas for pansexuals, it is not. For example, if you asked a bisexual what their ‘type’ is, they might reply “well, I like sassy girls with red hair and short shy boys and androgynous tall nonbinary people and flower child demi-girls and and and”, whereas if you asked a pansexual the same question, they might reply “well, I like people with mohawks and tattoos and cute smiles and nice arms”.
If you’re looking to pull out the “but ‘bi’ means two!!111!!!!1” argument, please first consider that active bisexual support groups have been defining it as attraction to the SAME gender and OTHER genders for decades. That makes two.
I agree with everything else you said in the post, but if someone says they’re bisexual, it’s nobody’s place to tell them they aren’t. If you sought to educate, it would’ve been better to simply explain the differences without making assumptions. Bisexuals and pansexuals are both frequently shunted off and demeaned by the straight AND gay communities. We should be supporting each other, not insulting and erasing sexualities.
This entire thing is ducking beautiful
I am pansexual but no one really got what it was or said, oh so you’re bi right? Uhm no, so the way I simply explain it to quote from the last unicorn “I love whom I love” I’m more attracted to WHO they are not WHAT they are, even then it’s no ones business and I don’t understand the hate for it.
The sad thing is, panromantics/pansexuals get erased all the time, even in LGBT communities
REBLOGGING BECAUSE YES
i’ve come to the conclusion that espeon is my favorite eeveelution
When you go to a haunted house, it may seem like you’re being funny by trying to scare the actors or jump out at them when you go through a second time, but guess what? ITS NOT FUNNY.
You pay us to scare you. It is your choice to go, so don’t fucking go through if you’re going to ignore the rules and get too close to the actors as a ‘joke’.
These bruises happened because over the course of 4 hours, several people ignored the instructions that CLEARLY stated that they were to wait in the front room until told otherwise. Rather than listen, they ran into the next room and slammed into me- effectively throwing me into the wall. This didn’t only happen once. It happened ten times at LEAST.
Then we had this asshole who thought that once I ‘died’ for the haunt, he could pretend to kick me to see if I’d moved. I, being used to people abusing me- jumped back and slammed my head into the concrete wall.
YOU ARE NOT FUNNY BY BEING RUDE AT A HAUNTED HOUSE. WE ARE PAID ACTORS THAT YOU CHOOSE TO COME AND SEE PERFORM. YOU PAY US TO SCARE THE SHIT OUT OF YOU, SO DONT HIT US WHEN WE DO
I feel that this is relevant considering it is October and more Haunted Houses are opening up. I know it seems funny to scare the ‘monsters’ but all you do is hurt real people. So stop.
It’s not even October but I’m still spreading this
SIGNAL BOOOOOOOOSSSSSTTTTT!!!!!!! Now
Had this experience on a smaller scale. Fucking people are dicks.
