10 panphobic myths
pansexualpride: http://rainbowgenderpunk.wordpress.com/2011/11/12/10-panphobic-myths-debunked/ I don’t really like the -phobic terminology, but there don’t seem to be any specific terms to replace biphobia and panphobia, except bi-hatred and pan-hatred, and I hear people find them too clunky. But that asides, this is a great article / blog post / thing. Read it.
Gender Neutral Bathroom Challenge
pansexualpride: The challenge: Don’t use any gendered bathrooms or change rooms for the month of April. What are “gendered bathrooms”? Gendered bathrooms are designated for “men” or “women” by a sign. This challenges includes ALL multi-stall and single-stall washrooms, and the bathrooms at work, schools, libraries, bars/restaurants, and everywhere, really. There are multiple purposes for this...
Anonymous asked: I have a question. I have been questioning my sexuality for quite some time now, and I know that would at the very least be romantically attracted to all genders, and I see the beauty and distinction in them. I could also easily see myself enjoying an intimate relationship with any gender. However, I noticed that I don't have any sort of carnal lust toward anyone but heterosexual men (with a...
octavielilou: I kinda don’t like it when people refer to pansexuality as being “gender-blind”. It honestly reminds me a bit of people saying that they “don’t see race”. So…you’re just going to not acknowledge a potentially large part of someone’s identity? That’s really not cool. I mean, I certainly see gender, it just doesn’t matter when I find someone attractive. I suppose some people who...
Which gender are you most attracted to?
Hey there! What exactly is Romantic Attraction? http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triangular_theory_of_love I’m relying on this and I’d call myself a Cisgender Male Heteroromantic (just intimacy though!) Demisexual. And how does commitment factor into this? Maybe giving a visual representation of suffices and prefixes for gender, sex and three types (at least imo) of orientation would be...
Had a problem with a submission:
The URL disappeared, so can the person who submitted three definitions send an ask or a submission? I don’t want to not credit you because tumblr ate your name.
amateuranal-deactivated20130409 asked: Interesting that someone should say 'transvestite' is outdated, but then mention 'MTF' and 'FTM' .... Many fellow trans people I know don't like those acronyms because they mention the gender designated at birth, and so instead prefer e.g. "trans woman" and "trans man" (with the space being important to avoid possible third-gendering).
fuckyeahgenderstudies: femmeprincessbrat: fuckyeahgenderstudies: This is an ongoing collaborative glossary/definitions/dictionary project courtesy of pansexualparty. It’s rather good (although from a quick scan there are a couple of imprecise/imperfect definitions, for instance Intersex—but the whole point is that it’s a constant work-in-progress and if there are any definitions you disagree...
saoirsesmile asked: Hi there. I'm writing my university dissertation on modern sexualities, I was wondering if you could post asking your followers to contact me and talk to me about how they discovered pansexuality and why they decided it suited them? It would really help my research and I hope to get it published to promote awareness of pansexuality :)
Anonymous asked: "transvestite" is an outdated, now derogatory term. The modern term is "Transgender(ed)." More detailed terms are FTM (female to male), MTF (male to female), female-identifying and male-identifying.
Hi! I’m really impressed with the Queertionary, but I did notice that the hetero- definitions talk about being attracted to “the other gender”, which seems to imply a gender binary by saying someone is attracted to the one other gender besides their own. Maybe use “another gender” like you have in other definitions. I’m not sure if people use hetero- terms in...
