Sexuality is a complex and pretty darn interesting thing, and people generally like to debate the hell out of it =P
Yeah, no shit.
For the record, I found absolutely no online research or articles done on the non-existence of pansexuality. So if, uh, Jack would like to help reveal the existence of said article, or explain from which professor or speaker whom he got this statement and research done, I'd be grateful.
But hey, here's some shit. Apparently my distinctions between the two sexualities can be considered completely wrong.
With what I've read in the past few hours, at least, I
feel that I was wrong. So let me reveal what I found to be a more succinct perspective.
Feel free to utterly not give a shit and/or completely disagree.
-Bisexuality: Being attracted to people of the same gender
as yourself and to different genders.
-Pansexuality: Being attracted to all
genders. (Attraction regardless
The correct latin root meanings (thus making my previous statements towards Mentova full of shit):
: Two or more
genders. 1) Your gender 2) Other genders.
: All genders.
Yes, they exist between the two. (But--technically there is an overlap between heterosexual and homosexual, as both have an attraction to the opposite gender. So--nonpoint).
Many (not all) bisexuals do
see gender as an influencing factor in attraction. While they may like -many- genders, they might find different things about those genders attractive.
Many (not all) pansexuals express the idea that gender has no
impact on their attraction to a person.
So, alright. I can learn something new everyday.
Feel free to continue on about how labels are just like, totally overrated, man, and that it shouldn't even be discussed.
And to call me out on my own shit. Like--for realsies. I feel like I'm the only one in this fuckin' place who's willing to go out, do a bit of reading, and come back with the paperwork and say, "Well fuck. You guys had some points and I was completely wrong on shit."
If nobody's here to maybe consider the fact that they're wrong or that they have something new to learn, then you're more or less just here to state your opinions as fact and go on about how you're right and the other person is wrong. Yeah--cue sarcastic response of, "Isn't that what we all do?" But no, I don't think everyone does that. I just think most are too lazy/proud to change their line of thought.
Like, I would heavily consider Jack's supposed research into my own personal opinion on the matter if I could fuckin' find it anywhere.
