Default What is your gender and sexuality? Thread 2.0



The original what is your sexuality thread is super old so I thought I'd make a new one with detailed information in the OP.

Sexualities:
  • Asexual = experiences no sexual attraction
  • Bisexual = attraction to your own gender and one other
  • Heterosexual = attraction to the opposite gender
  • Homosexual = attraction to the same gender
  • Pansexual = attraction to all genders or attraction regardless of gender

    More:
    Spoiler!
Romantic attraction =/= sexual attraction

You can have romantic attraction to others without desiring sex with them. To define romantic attraction replace "sexual" with "romantic".

Ex: Panromantic asexual. (Someone who does not experience sexual attraction but desires romantic relationships with others regardless of gender.)

Genders:
  • Agender = no gender
  • Genderfluid = moves between genders
  • Cisgender = gender aligns with what was assigned at birth
  • Transgender = gender different than what was assigned at birth
  • Genderflux = gender intensity changes over time
  • Demigender = identifying partially with one gender
  • Intergender = gender between male and female; used by intersex individuals

More:
Spoiler!


There are also gender identities exclusive to certain cultures such as two-spirit and hijra.

Gender identity =/= genitalia

This isn't a definitive list by any means.

Also, no trolling with statements like: "I'm demi-toastergender. My pronouns are toasterself/toaster's." You're not funny- you're just an ass.

This is actually getting so complicated. Oh well, with so many possibilities, at least it's hard to discriminate or leave anybody out.

Cisgender. For my sexuality, if have to make a clear-cut distinction, homosexual I guess. I'm sometimes attracted to women, but it's not really the same. I don't really like picking a sexuality because I just like people and none of the ones listed above really sound right for me. Labels are ok because they create communities and a sense of belonging, but they are not for everyone.

genderflux (between agender and somewhere on the female spectrum, majority of the time im nearer agender tho)

(also could you edit the genderflux definition kinvy? gender intensity changes over time, also theres fluidflux which is a combination of genderfluid and genderflux, so not only does gender change, intensity changes too)

sexuality/romantic: ?\_(ツ)_/? probably ace and demiromantic but idk

Here are some others:


If one doesn't fit, that's fine too.

Homosexual cisgender male.
I'm not sure if adding the cisgender was redundant, but hey.

I don't understand the point of this thread. Are we a dating site now?

Heterosexual male (pm me ladies) Stealth "look at me I'm gay" thread?

This feels way over complicated and overwhelming to take in. There's so many terms and most I've never even heard of. I don't know what to put down to identify myself as far as all these labels go, so I'll just be boring and say heterosexual female.

How is this different from any other thread asking what country people live in or what they do etc.?

We had a what is your sexuality thread ages ago but that one is old so I did another one that included gender plus info in the OP.

Probably because it's none of our business. There is nothing wrong with having different sexuality characteristics but there is no need to advertise.

It isn't. If we had a thread on what country people live in most would say the US. But since that's sort of the norm there's nothing to say about it that everybody doesn't already know. So it becomes a thread for people that aren't from the US to say what's special about their country, while the Americans can't post anything without being redundant.

How is this advertising in any way?

If someone doesn't want to make that info known, they don't have to post. If you're not interested in the subject, don't go in the thread. It's as simple as that.

Like Scizor was saying, this is just a way for members to get to know each other better and see if they have something in common with someone else.

It's just interesting to know that there's diversity in the forums. It's not like a/s/l, hit me up if you're nearby, no. Let's face it, it's kind of a relevant topic in today's world and in modern societies, and there are honestly entire university degrees devoted to sexuality and gender, so if you're offended/weirded out by a single thread, then I'm sorry, but it's time to mature a little bit. It's called sociology, and it's interesting.

My gender is female, and my sexuality is homosexual.

I haven't heard but one or two of those sexuality terms beyond the spoiler. o.o

I am a female, and I'm bisexual. Most people irl think I'm straight though since I tend to keep these kind of things quiet. If someone asks, sure, I'll let em know, but you're not gonna see me just randomly hitting on girls (or boys for that matter)

'Conversion therapy' endangers LGBT youth and must stop: U.S. report

So glad this is getting addressed.

I hope it's banned ASAP but legislation always takes forever.

4 US presidential candidates sign pledges to void all same-sex marriages.

They're all Republicans of course: Jindal, Cruz, Santorum, and Carson.

I saw that article recently too, but it was published in August. I wonder why we never heard about the pledge until now? It's a pretty big deal to voters.

Probably because there's not really any chance they could even get away with doing anything about it.

But the fact that they're still harping on about it just shows how irrelevant and out-of-touch they are. Not that same-sex marriage ever should have been treated like it had any valid opposition, it's just... obviously even that 'opposition' has failed. To still be going on about it, god... We have some terrible candidates for presidency.
