Pansexuality is a sexual/affectional orientation characterized by a potential aesthetic attraction, romantic love and/or sexual desire for people of any sex or gender, including transsexual, transgendered, genderqueer and intersex people.
People who use the term “pansexual” may assert that the term is intended to dissolve what they perceive as a binary social construct of gender that divides people into categories of male and female. Those who use this term may claim that the term “bisexual” perpetuates this binary distinction, and marginalizes transsexual, transgendered, genderqueer people whose gender identity may not align with that of their biological sex at birth. Users also state that the term “bisexual” is particularly marginalizing to intersex people, whose chromosomes may not fit the most common distinctions of XX and XY.
Pansexuality is sometimes described as the capacity to love a person romantically irrespective of gender. Some people who are pansexual may assert that the concept of gender is meaningless to them. The word pansexual is derived from the Greek prefix pan-, meaning “all.”
