Disclaimer: Because of stigmas surrounding queer identities, not all who identify as pansexual have the liberty of being a free-ass motherf**ker.
1. Pansexuality is defined by Merriam-Webster as an attraction to all genders and sexes. Bisexuality is widely recognized as an attraction to men and women. In addition to being attracted to both men and women, pansexuals can also find themselves desiring transgendered individuals and those who don’t identify with the gender binary. They essentially want to get down with whoever’s energy they find themselves vibin’ with, regardless of gender or sex. Monae told Rolling Stone she initially believed herself to be bisexual until learning about pansexuality. For the 32-year-old and other pansexuals, it all comes down to the way you make them feel.
Shortly before Monae's long-awaited coming out, singer Kehlani -- who is consistently putting on for the LGBTQ community and has been open about her attraction to men and women -- established her identity as a queer woman. The 23-year-old tweeted she didn't consider herself to be straight or bisexual. She, in fact, walks around thinking "errybody fine."
In other words, we must protect these two women at all costs.
