Pomosexuals live life a step beyond the superficial labeling humans define their sexuality by. One does not necessarily "know" another merely because they are both straight, lesbians or bi; pomosexuals take this into account, and disregard the orientation label altogether for better unification.

It should be noted that pomosexuality itself is not a defined sexuality. On "the list" of orientations to choose from, it is the equivalent of selecting "N/A."
"I'll start the day doing homework, eat lunch at In-N-Out Burger and finish the day at work. Confused about which sexuality I belong? Ah, it is great to be a pomosexual."

Like the current use of "queer," but for assholes.
Adam: "I used to think I was bi, but I realized that sexuality is so much more complicated than that. What does that make me?"

Dave: "Queer?"

Adam: "But I'm also a sesquipedalian circumloquacious obscurantist douchebag, and I want to keep my liberation confined to the academically privileged."

Dave: "Oh! You're totally pomosexual."

Pomosexual is a term popularized by sex-positive activists and writers Carol Queen and Lawrence Shimel in their 1997 Anthology "Pomosexuals: Challenging Assumptions about Gender and Sexuality". People who identify as Pomosexual are attempting to redefine, reassess and protest current essentialist-bound labels surrounding sexual orientation.

A portmanteau of pomo, short for postmodernism, and sexual, used as a noun—a person who rejects/avoids or does not identify as categorizations of sexual orientations (e.g., heterosexual and homosexual, which define people by relative conceptualizations of their sexual preferences and their direction of attraction) as a form of identity—and as an adjective, referring to such a person or to the philosophy of pomosexuality .
Elisa: What's your sexual orientation, john?

John: I do not identify as any sexual orientations labels.

Elisa: But, everyone is either pan/omni , bi, straight, gay, or an asexual.

John: None of them works for me and I refuse to use a label to define my sexual preference. I am a pomosexual.

The label when the word homosexual, bisexual, or heterosexual doesn't fit the description. Pomosexual is short for Post Modern Sexual. A label made for those that are beyond the words and labels.
John: "Wait, if you're transgender, does that make you homo when you like a guy?"
Charlene: "I'm just awesome and pomosexual like that."
