Pansexual vs Omnisexual - What is the Difference?
Pansexual vs Omnisexual
What does it mean to be Pansexual?
Pansexuality is defined as having romantic/sexual attraction regardless of gender identity, or sex. Someone who is pansexual does not have preferences when it comes to their partner's gender or sexual identity.
A harmful myth that comes with pansexuality is that it is a subset of bisexuality. It is absolutely untrue. Bisexuality refers to someone who is attracted to 2 or more genders, whereas pansexuality refers to someone who does not have any gender preferences when it comes to romantic/sexual attraction.
For instance, a bisexual person may have a stronger connection towards a specific gender whereas a pansexual person would not have differences in their attraction towards all genders.
Pansexual people often refer to themselves as gender-blind to assert that gender and sex are not determining factors in their romantic or sexual attraction to others.
