DEAR DIL: Can pansexuals feel attracted to everybody? My bff came out as pan and now things are weird between us. I’m straight.

Hi There:

Great question, straight person! Awesome for asking for help figuring this out. Things feel really weird between you right now, but here’s the thing: Your bff is still your bff. Same face, same personality, same stuff in common that were always there. Your bff took a healthy risk trusting you with really personal information. It’s good you care about your friendship and it to be back to normal. Your bff might be worried about the same thing too!

Someone who identifies at pan has the potential to be attracted to folks anywhere on the gender spectrum regardless of their own gender identity. But just like hetero-girls and homo-boys aren’t attracted to every boy they see, the same is true for pan folks. Just because you belong to a gender group in someone’s “attraction zone,”, doesn’t mean the person is necessarily attracted to you.

It sounds like you’re feeling weird because you’re worried your bff is attracted to you? Lots of people wonder this – regardless of gender or sexual orientation – usually because we feel really strongly towards our bffs. And sometimes we feel attracted to someone without actually wanting something to happen. Maybe you feel confident that you aren’t attracted to your bff or you’re wondering if maybe you are? Do you need help figuring that out? Or do you need to talk to your bff, letting them know you are proud of and support them while emphasizing your strong f r i e n d s h i p for them?

Don’t let it be any weirder than it has to be. Be honest about what you want. If your bf is into you, they might need space to get over their feelings. Friendships built on mutual love and respect are usually solid enough to withstand a crush!

Things only get un-weird by talking about them…

Hi I'm confused about this post: /post/161001547111/falafellesbian-people-really-need-to-stop I thought nonbinary was a third gender? I understand that gender exists on a spectrum, but I don't understand why NB isn't considered a third gender? Please help

Hey! Nonbinary isn’t considered a third gender because as the post says, there are countless ways to be nonbinary. Every nonbinary person’s gender differs a bit from someone else’s it isn’t exactly the same for everyone. 
Like, there are different names for nonbinary genders such as genderqueer, agender, and just nonbinary, all of which differ from the other. 
And nonbinary itself is a spectrum, because you can have neutral-presenting nonbinaries, masculine-presenting nonbinaries, feminine-presenting nonbinaries, nonbinary people that are a mix of feminine and masculine, etc. Gender is a spectrum, and since it is, there are many variations to what “nonbinary” is, and calling it a third gender assumes all nonbinary people’s genders are exactly the same when they aren’t.

Okay so I identify as bi because even though I'm attracted to everyone on the gender spectrum my emotions vary for different genders like if I like a girl it's more !!!!!! And with a guy it's more !¡!¡ and with a nb person it's more ?!?!?! Ya know???

That sounds like a pretty good reason :)

Wardrobe.

If you are upset, angry or uncomfortable with me over the clothes I choose to wear…

I am not the one who needs to change. But perhaps you need to reevaluate your feelings and why my personal style is contributing to your own dissatisfaction or discomfort.

Do not chastise me because I like to wear skirts and make up.
Do not rebuke my existence because I look damn good in a dress.
Do not reproach me with your concerns over my wardrobe because I do not get dressed for my day with you in mind.

You can berate me as much as you like, but I wont change.
There was a time when I had no choice but to conceal my true self to continue living alongside someone or multiple people. Thankfully, I am past that point in my life.

If you have yet to reach a point in life where you feel 100% free to be yourself, now is the time to figure out how you can change your life in a positive way that allows you such freedoms. For younger individuals, this is the hardest because all you can do is wait it out until you reach an age where your parents can no longer control you and society can’t stop you. I know what that is like, I have been there! Remember, I am only 22 years old! It wasn’t until about 3 years ago when I obtained such freedom for myself.

Never give up on yourself though.
Never forget the person you want to be when you finally get the chance to.
I sure didn’t.

Behind the TIME Cover Story: Beyond 'He' or 'She'
How a new generation is changing the meaning of gender and sexuality
By Katy Steinmetz

In a new survey from LGBTQ advocacy organization GLAAD, conducted by Harris Poll, those open minds are reflected in the numbers: 20% of millennials say they are something other that strictly straight and cisgender, compared to 7% of boomers.

Hey to all my NB siblings! 

I’m planning an illustrated zine project exploring and celebrating nonbinary genders. I’d love to include the voices of as many NB people as I can gather- I want to hear about your gender, your experiences, and what being nonbinary means to you! I’d also love to draw some of you, because you’re all beautiful.

I’m looking for submissions of anything from a couple of sentences to about 500 words on what being nonbinary means to you, your gender identity, your experiences, what you love about being nonbinary, and anything else you want to share! And if you’d like a little sketch portrait of yourself included along with your words, attach a selfie and I can draw you. 

Some clarification- I’m not looking for art submissions at the moment, but I’ve had lots of interest from awesome artists so I might either change the framework of the book to see if I can accommodate guest art, or try and organise an anthology of art by NB artists in future!

If you’re interested in contributing a few words and/or having your portrait included, anonymously or otherwise, please contact me here or at jayrsimpson@gmail.com. I won’t include anything in the zine without your consent, and I’ll check with you before it’s printed! I’m hoping to be able to send all contributors a PDF copy. 

Currently I’m planning to have the zine finished by September! More info on the content and some sample spreads coming soon.


Can’t wait to hear from you all! Keep being wonderful xxx

The Cis: there are only two genders! read a 5th grade biology text book!

scientists: actually both sex and gender exist on a spectrum and as a rule almost nothing in the universe is binary

The Cis:

Reblog or like if you are non binary and/or somewhere on the ace/aro spectrum and you are 18+.

I see a lot of people talking about how it’s a teen thing so I’m wondering since I’m 26 myself.
