What’s the difference between bisexual and pansexual? "Here are the thoughts from the group on the two questions we threw
out to them:
Why are there more than 2 genders?
• Some people don't feel like either male or female fits who they are
• Some people don't feel comfortable in one or either of those categories
• Gender is a spectrum, not just male and female
What's the difference between bisexual and pansexual?
• Bisexual people are attracted to 2 or more gender identities -
• gender is a factor in the attraction
Pansexual people are attracted to the human, regardless of their gender
identity

people who are pansexual still have preferences (they don't feel
attraction towards literally everyone); but gender identity is not one of
the factors that affect attraction."
