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.
THIS MEANS THAT NO, PANSEXUAL PEOPLE ARE NOT ATTRACTED TO PANS.
"Pan" comes from the Latin, meaning "all"; strangely enough, it is the name of the Greek god of the wild as well.

Synonyms: omnisexual
Antonyms: asexual
Related words: heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual

Bob: No, idiot, it means I'm attracted to everyone.
Jake: Well I'm gay...
Bob, Jake: ...

A rare and magical species who's sexual orientation consists of attraction to just about any particular shade of queer. Pansexuals are a rare and almost endangered species because many people do not believe that these magical unicorns exist. These wonderful creatures are generally very loving and accepting, so it is extremely important that you treat them with respect.
If you ever meet a pansexual, make sure you hold onto them because when you find an asexual, you can pair them up and they will become a magical rainbow superhero duo and they might even grant you one wish!

Pansexual is a sexuality in which age/race/religion/sexuality/sex/gender/money/weight/height/disability does not contribute to the initial attraction to a person. A pansexual is first attracted by the personality and the chemistry between themselves and the other person and then other attractions come later. For example a pansexual would choose an honest caring slightly overweight man over a nasty self centered man with a 6 pack. Panseuxuals are however monogamous (they are only ever with one person at a time)
She is pansexual.

An attraction to people based entirely on how one feels about another on a personal face to face level regardless of gender identity, sexual orientation or biological gender, skin color, ethnic background, religion, etc.

I believe the definition for Pansexual needs to be altered a bit. Many of the definitions provided on this site, and most others for that matter, are provided by people who identify as pan and as such often come off a bit insulting to other orientations.

Yes. Pansexual represents one who is attracted to an individual regardless of gender or gender identification. Like everyone else has said, they can love/be attracted to ALL... not just male or female.

But, I highly doubt you'll meet very many bisexuals who would identify themselves any differently. The problem with "bisexual" is the word itself because it DOES imply the binary male and female. But, in practice, very few bisexual individuals actually look at love in that fashion.

A straight person, a gay person, a bisexual person, they can all date and love a transgender person and that doesn't make them not straight or not gay or not bisexual. In fact, transgendered identifying people would probably be insulted if their girlfriend or boyfriend was suddenly labeled as "not straight", that implies that the transgendered person is somehow less male or less female than someone genetically born that way.

The definitions for pansexual on here are mostly accurate, but they fail to acknowledge that all these labels are part of the problem in the first place. Just love who you want however you want and if someone asks, "what are you?" Tell them it doesn't matter... or make something up who cares.
Doug: I'm so happy I met my new boyfriend, he's really changed my life.

Suzie: Isn't he trans... I thought you were gay?

Doug: I am gay, my boyfriend is a guy, end of story.

Suzie: Oh, well I'm pansexual so I don't even think about gender, I'm basically blind to gender which is really what the world needs.

Doug: I think the world just needs less labels. Who cares if you're pan or I'm gay... I know who I love and that's what matters.
