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 identify as pan use the term “gender-blind”, but it still strikes me as odd and I really wish people wouldn’t lump all pansexuals into that category. Sexuality is a really diverse thing, even within particular labels.
Have to agree:
- The term colourblind basically ignores race, therefore ignoring racial identity and racial oppression. Colourblind is also a thing that exists, so the word is also appropriative of actual colourblindness.
- The term genderblind basically ignores gender, therefore ignoring gender identity and gender-based oppression, including cissexism, transmisogyny, binarism, and sexism/misogyny.
- You can tell they’re the same concept because one word is based on the other.
- People with gender identities that they feel aren’t covered by bisexual aren’t going to want pansexual people to ignore or be blind to their genders. They’re going to want pansexual people to acknowledge and respect their gender identities.
