    This time, I've simplified the options, if you find that perhaps you fit in-between an option, pick the one you feel closest describes your orientation, then elaborate in the thread. This isn't rocket science.

    Remember, this is for sexual orientation, not romantic, not platonic, and not aesthetic. We could have separate threads for those if you want, but for now, this should do.
    Cast your vote based on your feelings, not on what other people call you, derogatory or otherwise. This is important, and no one can invalidate your sexuality. For example, if you are a person that identifies as being male, but might not physically be male, and you are attracted primarily to males, you should obviously vote homosexual, not heterosexual. Got it? Neat.


    A quick recap on what the options mean, then! If you feel that you need more information on these in general, click here, otherwise, click the links below for more specific learning experiences. If you need another list of links for learning, here's the full Wiki category on the subject, just click and go.

    • Bi / Het - Mostly attracted to persons of the opposite sex, partially attracted to persons of the same sex.

    • Bisexual - Attracted equally to persons of both sexes.

    • Bi / Homo - Mostly attracted to persons of the same sex, partially attracted to persons of the opposite sex.

    • Pansexual - Attracted to any person, of any sexual orientation, gender role, physical gender, gender identity, no matter how bad they dance, and regardless of any reason. ( Often related to gender-blindness. ) Similar but not identical to bisexuality in definition.

    • Demisexual - Feeling attraction to a specific person, but only after a strong emotional bond has been formed with said person. This is a catchall for demi-homo/het/bi/pan, and is not limited to just binary terms. ( This is usually classed as a subgroup of asexuality. )

    • Asexual (aka) Non-sexual / Grey-A - Not attracted to any person of any sexuality. I've also stuck Grey-A in here for those of you who are very nearly asexual, but sometimes find yourself feeling attracted to someone. ( Since Grey-A is considered a subgroup of asexuality, but isn't as largely debated as demisexuality, I feel that it's fine sitting right here. )

    • Not sure / Don't wish to be labeled - Unsure yet as to which orientation best fits your feelings, or if you'd much rather not be labeled at all. ( This is a public poll, if you feel that you need to vote, but don't want people to know your orientation, vote here I guess? )

    Love is love regardless of attraction.

    Deal with it.

    I voted, but I can't help but think that this poll should be anonymous, as some people might not what to reveal their sexuality to everyone on FAF.

    and love is completely unrelated to sexual attraction, so why it would be brought up in this thread is beyond me

    ed: to get back on topic, I saw this thread and ended up frustrated. I just don't know how to answer it - nothing seems fully descriptive. I'm hardly in denial, but I just simply don't know where my boundaries lie. I've yet to find 'em. Hence my vote, 'not provided' - I'm not "not sure", but I just don't seem to have limit or form on my sexual interests. Omnisexual? wharrgarble

    irrelevant; feelings of love have nothing to do with whether a dick or a pussy get you off

    romantic attraction is not sexual attraction

    this is not a venn diagram the two do not even relate why do you even how do what

    ... if you don't want to share, why would you vote at all? There's even a "don't wish to be labeled" option for this. :T People bitched about the poll being anonymous in the past, so I switched it.
    /no pleasing everyone/

    I'm fine with it. I can just imagine other people might not think in the same way.

    For sexual attraction?

    For actual romantic attraction?

    I'm gay. I'm sexually and romantically attracted to guys and nothing else. I tried to be attracted to girls but it never really got anywhere. And vaginas make me queasy...

    But then I'm not really experienced in relations so I can't really say 100%.

    Even though I already said something, this describes me pretty well too.
    Except that, only smart ladies catch my attention. Vaginas disturb me too >.>

    Read the second paragraph of the op

    Or at least tell me the point rather than giving me a vague statement ostensibly unrelated to the thread whoch the op already asked not to to talk about

    You really are tenacious. I was implying that love is love regardless of sexuality, I wasn't trying to make a debate about it.
