please can someone help me define pansexual in a broad term? a pretty long explanation could be helpful
Pansexual is the act whereby a person loves (is emotionally attracted to) either a man or a woman. Pansexualiy has no regards for sex because they love any sex.
According to wikipedia;
Pansexuality, or omnisexuality, is the sexual, romantic or emotional attraction towards people regardless of their sex or gender identity. Pansexual people may refer to themselves as gender-blind, asserting that gender and sex are not determining factors in their romantic or sexual attraction to others.
This term “Pansexuality” is often confused with bisexuality but they are both different terms, check the below explanation I found on Urban dictionary
It is A form of sexuality often confused or inter-meshed in definition with bisexuality (an attraction towards both physical sexes: male and female). Pan-sexuality is, in truth, a much broader form of sexual orientation, in which the pan-sexual individual experiences sexual attraction towards members of ALL genders (not to be confused with sexes, which is purely physical–gender has to do with the psychological), including transgender, transsexual, cross dressing, androgyne, androgen, two-spirited, gender-fliud, and all other variety of gender identitfications, as well as those who do not feel that they have a gender.
1. Gordon’s pansexuallity is manifested in that his girlfriend is a transgender woman.
2. Becca’s pansexuality is manifested in that her significant other is two-spirited.
3. Brian loves his significant other regardless of gender–which is a good thing, since zie does not HAVE one. Brian’s significant other is lucky to have met a pansexual to love.
