Pansexualityor omnisexuality is the sexualromantic or emotional attraction towards people
Pansexuals of their sex or gender identity.
Pansexuality may be considered a sexual orientation in its own right or a branch of bisexualityto indicate an alternative sexual identity.

Pansexuals literal dictionary definition of bisexualitydue
Pansexuals the prefix bi-is sexual or romantic attraction to
Pansexuals sexes males and femalesor to two genders men and women.
Using these definitions, pansexuality is defined differently by explicitly including people who are intersex or outside

Scholar Shiri Eisner states that terms such as pansexual, omnisexual, polysexualqueeretc. The American Institute of Bisexuality argues that "terms like pansexualpolysexualomnisexualand ambisexual also describe a person with homosexual and heterosexual attractions, and therefore people with those labels are also bisexual" and that "by replacing the prefix bi — two, both with pan- allpoly- many Pansexuals, omni- allambi- Pansexuals, and implying ambiguity in this casepeople who adopt these labels seek to clearly express the fact that gender does not factor into their own sexuality," but "this does not mean, however, that people who identify Pansexuals bisexual are fixated on gender.
The Latin prefix bi- does indeed indicate two or both, however the 'both' indicated in the word bisexual are merely homosexual lit. Given those fundamental facts, any Pansexuals of bisexuality as reinforcing a gender binary is misplaced. Over time, our society's concept of human and "Pansexuals" may well change. This is distinct from polyamorywhich means more than one intimate relationship at the same time with the knowledge and consent of everyone involved.
American Institute of Bisexuality stated, "The term fluid "Pansexuals" the fact that the balance of a person's homosexual and heterosexual attractions exists in a state of flux and changes over time.
