This term is a sexual orientation. Some individuals who identify as having this sexual orientation may believe that they are gender-blind, while others are more in-tune to gender variety which may include appreciating and enjoying transgender, intersex, and genderqueer individuals as well as the different degrees of masculinities and femininities a person may possess, whether they are cisgender (non-transgender) or transgender. Someone who has this sexual orientation has the potential to be attracted to, date, and fall in love with an individual without gender, sex, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation or these varying degrees of femininity and masculinity being a limiting factor. Some individuals take their identity of pansexual further than the romantic and/or sexual attraction that is typically associated with sexual orientation and include race, ethnicity, religion etc. as demographics that will not prevent them from being attracted to, date or fall in love with a particular person.
Person A: Oh my gosh, I don't know if that person is male or female, but they are so fucking hot!

(Heterosexual) Person B: Damn, you are so pansexual! I could NEVER be attracted to someone if I didn't KNOW they were of the opposite sex!

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.

Pansexuality is the attraction to all genders.
This is not to be confused with bisexuality, which is the attraction to any combination of at least two genders (men & women, men & women &enby people, enby people & women, etc).

Pansexuals often identify as pan because it explicitly states all genders, whereas bisexuality could mean a number of things to each individual.
Some people call themselves both pansexual and bisexual.
Skylar: I saw Jenny the other day. I want to be with her so much. Do you think she'd be into me? I'm genderqueer...
Fallon: She's pansexual! She could still be into you.
Skylar: Really?! Yay!

Easily confused with Bisexuality. Pansexuality is where you don't necessicarily care what gender the person is... rather falling for their personality. Loving and being attracted to someone because of their mind and their actions. Where Bisexuality you'd mess with either male or female, Pansexuality eliminates the necessity of gender. You fall for who you fall for regardless of what is in their pants......
While talking to my girlfriend....
"Baby, if i were transgender would you still love me?"
Her:"Of course pooh-bear.... I fell in-love with you for who you are, not what is in your pants... I thought I told you I was Pansexual.....<3"
