It is to "bisexual" what "vegan" is to "vegetarian."

Basically what a bisexual person calls themselves in order to sound like the greatest, most super-tolerant person ever. A bisexual individual is perfectly capable of being attracted to whomever they wish, but a bisexual who calls themselves pansexual believes that it takes one more step and yet another meaningless derivative with which they can slap judgment upon anyone who doesn't understand the difference.

It does NOT actually mean what the etymology implies ("pan" means "all" or "everything"), because if it did, then pansexuality would include bestiality, pedophilia, necrophila, and every other -iality and -philia known and unknown to humanity.
Bob: "So Mary, I hear you've had both a boyfriend and a girlfriend before. Are you bisexual?"

Mary: "*tsk* No, I'm PANsexual. I love ALL kinds of people, no matter what their gender preference."

Bob: "...but I thought gender preference had nothing to do with which gender you are..."

Mary: "YOU BIGOT!! TOLERATE ME, DAMMIT!!!"

Basically, being attracted to not just two sexes like bisexual implies. They're attracted to ALL genders. This means the pansexual person is attracted to, or can be attracted to, males, females, intersexes, pangenders, androgynes, agenders, genderqueers, bigenders and many more.
1: Are you bisexual?
2: No, I'm pansexual. I like all genders, not just two like "bi"sexual implies. Because pan means all.

A pansexual is someone who isn't influenced by the binaries and labels surrounding gender and sexuality. This can mean attraction to anyone regardless of their gender identity or sexual orientation. Some pansexuals take it a step further to be openly against those labels and definitions, considering them to be destructive and alienating.
During their date he was relieved to find out she was pansexual, and that sharing his transgendered status wouldn't be the hassle it often was with other people.
