I’ve been working on these since pride month, and I feel bad they weren’t finished in time but I’m so happy with how they turned out! These basically happened because I called my best friend a lesbean-sprout and she loved it so much I decided to draw the first one, and things kinda,,, escalated.
@ bi and pan girls, you’re allowed to openly express attraction towards men if you’re attracted to men. It doesn’t take away from your sexuality. It doesn’t water down your gayness. You don’t have to pretend to be a lesbian, being bi is enough.
[Image Description: Two screenshots, with captions at the bottom, of Bill Nye from his Netflix show. The first reads, “pansexual people are attracted to individuals” and the second reads, “regardless of their sex or gender.”]
Bill Nye acknowledged and validated pansexuality on his new Netflix show, Bill Nye Saves the World.
Even though I don’t particularly like the “regardless of” definition of pansexuality, I’ve seen quite a few people who are really happy about this and that is so important to me.
So, endless shoutouts to Bill Nye for acknowledging and validating people who very rarely feel seen and valid.
REBLOG IF YOU THINK PANSEXUALITY IS A LEGITIMATE SEXUALITY
i wanna come out to my mom as pansexual but when ive hinted at me not being 100% straight, she’s said its not a thing and that im too young to know (im 19) what my sexuality is and it just makes me SO MAD bc i want my mom to accept me but i think i need some support
so, please reblog if you agree that pansexuality is real and that im old enough to know my sexuality.
i feel like pansexuality is really ignored even inside the community, so here’s to pan girls. you are great and cute and pretty and lovely and one of my bffs is pan so i can Scientifically Confirm™ that pan girls are amazing. i mean it. pan girls are genuinely bright and astonishing and beautiful. i love pan girls.
happy asexual awareness week to all you ace pans and demi pans and grey-a pans and any and all aspec pans!!!! your identities are valid, you are valid, you are inherently part of the community, and you are so, so wonderful I love you all so much and hope you have an amazing week and get the love and support and acceptance that you deserve!
Pansexuality explained through elaborate wine metaphors, courtesy of the show Schitt’s Creek (context, the two of them slept together the night before, but Stevie, the first one to speak, had always thought David, the one looking at wines, was gay)
i need to make a post about this because it’s really bothering me.
bisexuality = the attraction to more than one gender, or the attraction to two or more genders, or the attraction to genders same as and other than your own
pansexuality = the attraction to all genders or the attraction to people regardless of their sex and gender identity
bisexuality is not defined as the attraction to men and women. bisexuality does not exclude other genders. bisexuals aren’t any less open-minded and accepting than pansexuals or anyone else in the lgbtq+ community. bisexuality is a sexuality, not a way to reinforce the gender binary.
many people seem to think that bisexuals aren’t aware of non-binary people or that they think there are only two genders.
this is because
1. the term bisexual is older than the term pansexual, and at the time the word bisexual was first introduced, it was defined as the attraction to males and females, because the term non-binary wasn’t something people were aware of. fortunately, many people today understand what gender binary and non-binary mean and because of this, the definition and meaning of bisexuality have evolved. saying bisexuals are only attracted to men and women is the old way of thinking.
2. bi in bisexual means two, and people always like to rely on this and say that it literally means two, as in men and women. if you really have to use this as an argument, the two you’re referring to means same as your own gender and other than your own gender. that makes two groups without excluding any genders.
3. pansexuality is always thought of as the gender-blind label that includes everyone whereas bisexuality is seen as only including men and women, boys and girls, males and females. which, like i said, is not true, so please destroy this way of thinking. it’s not helping anyone.
you can identify as both bisexual and pansexual. you can identify as
bisexual but feel like the word pansexual could also describe your sexuality accurately. you can
identify only as pansexual.
the difference between these two is slight but it’s there. so maybe instead of trying to tell others what their own sexualities are supposed to mean to them or what they should identify as, give everyone the freedom to identify themselves however way they feel is right for them. especially people who are neither bisexual nor pansexual can stfu and stop defining our sexualities for us thank you.
