this is me by Dametora this is me by Dametora
This stamp is set for remake to use more appropriate and less offensive terms.
"Anyone" is a nonoffensive term and is appropriate for the situation. Sorry about the terms used before, if you were offended. I was simply trying to think of queer labels, but I just managed to think up queer slurs.
Anyway. Updated.

Rewriting this since some people can't take a fucking hint:
I AM BISEXUAL. I AM CAPABLE OF LIKING ANYONE. I AM NOT PANSEXUAL. STOP ERASING MY VOICE.

The origin of the word bisexual and how it relates to homosexual and heterosexual is this:
1. Hermaphroditus is the god of bisexuality. They are an intersex genderqueer individual. Both but neither. Like the colour purple we tout today, Hermaphroditus represented both but neither; the two genders but also those between the genders. Which, due to the ignorance of the time, included everyone who didn't fall within a set gender role. From lady warriors to homosexuals to transgender persons to asexuals to crossdressers to bisexuals and so on and so forth.
2. Bisexual as an orientation has always meant Both Hetero (other/opposite) and Homo (same), because that is what it is bouncing off of as a orientation. Not 2. Not men and women. Not cis men and cis women. Other and same.

You do realize bipedal animals can and do still use all four limbs? BUT HOW CAN THEY DO THAT WHEN BI MEANS TWO??!?!?!? Or maybe there's something to be said about context of language and how a word is created! Hm! Nah, couldn't be, right? Fuck you.

Thousands of bisexuals identify this way, hundreds are transgender, hundreds are genderqueer. Bisexual groups around the world define bisexuality as "same" and "other". To say "only pansexuals can like anyone" and "bi = 2" and "bi means binary" is to erase all those bisexuals, is to erase real bisexual experiences and real bisexual people, is to exclude bisexuals from the discussion of their own sexual orientation as well as in some cases who they can and can not be loved by based on their gender orientation. It is bi erasure. It is biphobia. It is trans erasure. It is transphobia.

PANSEXUALS ARE NOT THE ONLY ONES CAPABLE OF LOVING TRANSGENDER PEOPLE.
To say this, is transphobic. It is saying that they are not "real" men and women, that they are "unlike" men and women, that they are "separate" from men and women. But this is false. Homosexuals, heterosexuals, asexuals, and bisexuals are all capable of loving a transgender person. Transgender is not a gender identity. It is a gender condition, like cisgender. Gender dysphoria does not make a person less lovable. In fact, pretty much 100% of bisexuals don't give a shit if their partner is transgender, and a surprisingly large amount of mono and asexual people don't either. BECAUSE IT'S THEIR GENDER IDENTITY THAT MATTERS, NOT THEIR GENDER DYSPHORIA.

The difference between bisexuality and pansexuality is which you prefer to identify as. It is like the difference between identifying as queer and identifying as gay.

I am not ignorant.
I know what the identification of pansexual is. I don't need everyone and their fucking mom jumping down my throat and trying to tell me how I am "supposed" to identify and categorize myself.

I find calling myself pansexual as overcategorization. Bisexual suits me fine.

I am not telling you pansexuality doesn't exist.
Identify as pansexual if you so choose, if that's what feels right.

As I described it before, pansexuality is a "subspecies" category of bisexuality that makes a clarifying statement of being "more open" than a "typical bisexual."

My very heart and soul tell me I'm bisexual. You got a problem with it? Think I'm "invading your turf"? Well, too damn bad.
