why do you ID more with the label 'pan' than 'bi'? i don't really factor in gender or sex with the array of people i'm attracted to, but i'm comfortable with bi, so why is pan more fitting for you? ❤️
Well, when I first learned pansexuality was a thing, the way I had it explained to me was that the difference between pan and bi is that that bisexual people experience attraction to two or more genders, while with pansexual people, gender isn’t really a factor at all when it comes to who they’re attracted to? So that’s why I started identifying as pan to begin with, bc that fits me a lot better!
But since then I’ve heard a bunch of different definitions/experiences of bisexuality, and a few of them sound pretty much the same as pansexuality, soooooo…idk lmao, I’m sticking with pan bc I may as well, and part of my mind can’t let go of that first explanation I heard
