Hi there thedailytennant, I have some issues with this post. Can’t reblog asks any so I’m gonna do it this way and send you a link. Basically what you’re saying is incorrect and also cissexist.
basically the difference is that bisexual people follow the gender binary in that there are men, and there are women, and they like those two genders. pansexuality is more open to gender as a spectrum. the way i see it is that bisexual people like men and women, whereas pansexual like people.
This sounds like you’re saying not just that our attraction only falls within the gender binary, but that we only see the gender binary. FYI most of us these days define our bisexuality as attraction to more than one gender. Most of us are cool with non-binary peeps, many of us are non-binary peeps. Stuff like this erases my non-binary siblings and that’s not cool.
it does get a bit confusing because as far as transgender/genderqueer people go, there’s always the question of what gender actually is (because whether you refer to someone as a girl or a guy or agender, their mind and body are still the same mind and body) and whether there’s actually such thing or if we’re just reacting to stereotypes — i could say i’m actually a guy because i’m more comfortable in guy clothes and doing guy things, but girls can stereotypically guy things too and still be girls. how does someone know they’re the opposite gender form their sex? sometimes i feel more like the opposite sex than my own, but i’m just not typical to my gender.
Whoa this sounds like you’re doubting the legitimacy of non-cis gender identities, which is really uncool. Anon didn’t even ask for your thoughts on gender so why are you philosophizing?
so i have a lot of thoughts about this but you didn’t ask for me to puke them out here haha so just know that bisexual people like boys with boy bits and girls with girl bits and pansexual people like anyone regardless of bits.
Whoooooa hold it there. Even if you cling to your narrow definition of bisexual as ”likes men and women” you gotta admit that trans men and trans women are men and women. Saying anything else is cissexist.
Also the rest of us don’t like people because of their genitalia so wtf.
In conclusion, read this, please.
