A pansexual individual is someone who experiences sexual attractions to people regardless of gender identity, in practice this is very similar to bisexuality.

Pansexuality differs with bisexuality in that most people who identify as pansexual are attracted to people in trans and nonbinary communities. This doesn't mean that some bisexuals aren't (many actually are and use pansexual and bisexual interchangebly) however some bisexuals are attracted to be only cis gender males and females.

In practice bisexualty and pansexuality overlap

In practice pansexuality may also vary in that it includes more than two genders but not all (despite its prefix meaning all). For instance, because of its inclusion of nonbinary and transgender individuals some people who are exclusively attracted to nonbinary and trans people may still identify as pansexual despite the fact they are not attracted to cis people. This contradiction exists because it is impossible to label every variation in human sexuality. The best way to know is to ask. Pansexuals like bisexuals can also have preferences.

Also while pansexual is defined as a sexual attraction, colloquially people use it to include romantic attractions as well. Its often times used to mean panromantic, while this is incorrect, the concept of romantic orientation is not as widely known as sexual orientation and most use it out of convience or out of genuine ignorance, there is a difference.

The word to describe tumblrites, fake hipsters and scared to come out lesbians.

They claim they could love a transgender person however they have never met one in their life.
Normal person: hello, are you bi
Pansexual idiot: no I'm pan

Pansexual idiot: I like all people especially people I've never met and probably won't fall in love with ever
Normal person: that makes no sense you are quite mentally off
Pansexual idiot: BIGOT BIGOTED BIGOT!!!!! (walks off sulking knowing the normal person is right)

pansexuality is a sexual orientation characterized by the attraction ( romantic or sexual ) to anyone without caring about their gender. this includes people who do not fit into the gender binary of male/female.

1. A person who is attracted to all genders.
2. A person who is attracted to people regardless of gender.

Not to be confused with polysexual and bisexual.

Note: Trans males are male, and vice versa.

Someone who is attracted (can be sexually, can be platonically) to everyone, regardless of gender. For example, a pansexual person would be attracted to males, females, transgenders, hermaphrodites, and others of any sexual orientation.
