What is pansexuality?
Ok, so when someone hears the word Pansexual, they think that someone is claiming to be sexually attracted to pans. Though, that's not exactly correct. Pansexuality is sexual attraction, or emotional attraction to someone no matter what their gender or orientation. Some times pansexuality is seen as a branch off of bisexuality, which is the sexual attraction to both genders. The prefix, pan, in pansexual means all. Which means that these people like anyone no matter their gender, or sex orientation, though that does not mean they will just be attracted to anyone they see. Everyone, no matter their orientation have standards and things they look for in their partners. When put in a metaphor, one would say that being pansexual makes one a revolving door, where bisexual for example would be a swinging door, since bisexuals swing both ways. It is said that pansexuality rejects the gender binary, or, the notion of two genders and indeed of specific sexual orientations.
