What does the term pan sexual mean?
The term pansexual generally is defined as someone who is attracted to other people regardless of their sexual orientation or gender.
The word pansexual comes from the greek prefix pan-, which means "all". It is also known as omnisexuality, omnisexual, gender-blind, and heteroflexible. Pansexual is used as a wide-ranging term as opposed to bisexual, as bisexuality only refers to people liking both women and men, and does not include a wider variety of gender neutral or gender fluid terminology.
In the news, Texas state Rep. Mary Gonzalez, D-El Paso, is believed to be the nation’s first pansexual elected official. She has hit the ground running, filing 29 bills and opening her office before any other freshman. She says that once people meet her, they understand her a little better and see her as a person, not caring anymore about the sexuality issue.
