Anonymous asked: hey heres an idea,
straight = attracted to people with the opposite genitals
homosexual = attracted to people who have the same genitals
bisexual = attracted to people with either or
pansexual = attracted to anyone with any genitals.
i thought it was this way anyway????
right, hey, new here.
this ain’t how it works. first of all, you gotta realize that what you’re saying here is suggesting that there’s only two possible sets of genitals for any person to have, which erases a helluva lot of trans people and a helluva lot of intersex people.
second, sexuality’s a damn complicated thing. some people might mean exactly what you say here. some people might define it the way you do. some people might be referring to somebody’s gender, not their genitals. some people might use ‘em completely different from both of those.
orientation don’t always have anything to do with genitals at all, so don’t go assuming it does and erasing people in the process.
