In my time that I’ve known I’m pan, I’ve seen a lot of non-pansexual people trying to define the term as “being attracted to people regardless of gender”. However, that is NOT true.
The root “pan” means “all”. That is it. It doesn’t mean that we’re gender-blind or that we don’t care.
Some of us do have preferences. For example, I have a preference for feminine people/women.
That doesn’t make me or any of us less pansexual than others.
Please spread the word of this definition instead of all of the incorrect definitions going around on this website. They can be harmful to pansexual people who are still trying to come to terms with their sexuality, or those who experience constant mislabeling or people saying negative things about their identity.
