You’re not a pain at all my dear :-)
Okay, so there’s some overlap between the two, obviously, & that makes it super confusing sometimes to figure out who you are. Bisexual people are attracted sexually and romantically to both males and females, and are capable of engaging in sensual relationships with either sex, & may or may not prefer one gender over another & that’s totally okay. They may or may not also have these feelings for intersex people, gender fluid/queer people, bi-gender, transgender male, or transgender female’s too. It depends on the person.
Pansexual is more of a way to show that you love kitchenware (kidding, seriously kidding; although I care more about the kitchenware I buy than the sex vs gender identity of a person). Pansexual people may be both sexually and emotionally attracted to individuals who identify as male or female; however, they may also be attracted to those who identify as intersex, third-gender, androgynous, transgender, or the many other sexual and gender identities.
Long story short, it serves more to show that you are also attracted to people that don’t fit entirely in their gender/sex binary, which helps people avoid awkward moments that they shouldn’t have to face. Personally, I still identify as bi A LOT to avoid confusion & because it’s convenient, but I’m pan. Even if you fit the “criteria” you’re not automatically an asshole for saying you’re bi. If if you’re bi, but not pan, you’re not an asshole for being bi. Who you like emotionally or sexually is totally okay as long as you’re both/all consenting adult humans :-)
Easy way to remember pan…. “Hearts not parts”
Goodbye friend, I hope I helped & was only a little confusing xoxoxo
