Pansexuality just another label, same as bisexuality

May 11, 2017

The best thing about science is that every result ends up being a proven fact. It seems as though, however, that something that doesn’t even need to be experimented with to know that it’s a fact is doubted. This generation has taken it upon themselves to try to create new sexualities, and genders. And then argue with people that say the genders/sexualities are not a thing. Well, those that believe there are more than two genders, and that think people can identify themselves as pansexual, or anything out of the realms of lesbian, gay or bisexual are completely wrong, and obviously know nothing about biology.

The whole thing with pansexuality, is that it would not be a thing if there weren’t people who believed there are genders beyond male and female. The “definition” of pansexuality on Wikipedia is “the sexual, romantic or emotional attraction towards people regardless of their sex or gender identity.” So, basically, by this definition, pansexuality is the same thing as bisexuality. As it is proven that there are only two genders, male and female.

Some may argue that pansexuality consists of more than just the gender aspect. That including pansexuality is being attracted to one regardless of age, race, or religion. The thing with that is, it shouldn’t have to be classified into a different sexuality. Gay, lesbian and bisexual are being attracted to the opposite gender, and unless someone is racist or has a preference of age/religious background (which has nothing to do with being attracted to a gender, which is a sexuality) it is the same thing as real, proven sexualities.

Personal preferences outside of gender have nothing to do with a sexuality. Someone’s either attracted to one of the opposite sex, or isn’t.

A part of being “pansexual” is being attracted to personality, without the thought of what gender the person may be. Both men and women have personalities, therefore pansexual is bisexual. There is no science behind pansexuality, and it seems to have been popularized by people who want to feel that they are different or special.
