5 Questions Pansexuals Hear All the Time

Pansexual:a person who can fall in love with all people despite one's orientation, gender identity, and physical attributes.



Many people have not heard of pansexual and often ask the craziest questions. So, this week, I polled a bunch of people who aren't familiar with the term and asked them what comes to mind after explaining the term. It's time we put some of these common misconceptions to rest!

1. How can you be the guy or the girl in the relationship?

First, I hate the idea of gender roles and second who cares?! In all honesty, I am just a normal person in a relationship.

2. What the difference between pansexual and bisexual?

Pansexuals include all people while bisexuals are attracted to other men and women.

3. How hard is it to date?

DATING SUCKS! Yes, we have a larger range of fishes in our sea but that doesn't mean they fit our specific "type". If this was the case I would not be single.

4. Are hesitant to tell people you are pansexual?

It is always hit or miss with each person. For me, I honestly don't care who knows, but others are sometimes scared of the aftermath of doing so.

5. Are you actually apart of the LGBT community?

There is a reason why it is called the LGTBQ+ community. The community is all exclusive and when we say everyone who is not against us is welcome we mean it.

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.
