There is an arrangement of letters that represents all non-hetero persons: LGBTQQIP2SA. This means: lesbian, gay, bi, trans, questioning, queer, intersex, pansex, two spirited, and asex. There are lots of things that Kinsey.
Because I like girls AND boys, but identify as a girl, I have been bouncing back and forth between the B and the P; am I bisexual or am I pansexual. I've asked my other non-hetero friends what they think about both of those words and this is what I've got: bi is liking a boy or a girl; pan is like people, regardless of gender. Well I think I just answered my own question (yea me!) in a post on Facebook about how much I hate trying to explain to people that I like girls and boys:
"I just wanna grump about something: explaining to people that I like girls AND boys. My sister makes "you keep switching teams" quibs and my brother's go to line is, "I'm confused, are you a lesbian or not?" And I want to yell at him, "HOW THE FUCK DO YOU THINK I FEEL?!!!" and then slam a door in his face. Why is it so hard to explain to people that I'm not a 0 or a 6, that I'm somewhere in the middle?! I get so annoyed with it!! I like people, I like sex, I like connecting with someone, why does the gender matter?! gah!!"That last line: "I like people, I like sex, I like connecting with someone, why does gender matter?!" answered my own question about me. I like people regaurdless of gender. I am attracted to people because of their individual traits. I like boys and girls for different reasons and I like different people for different reasons.
