Also its not complicated if ya actually bother to know these things.

I actually like that there's more labels now because humans really are varied and complicated so just black and white terms are ridiculous. And it's honestly not that hard to explain some terms if someone doesn't get it.

I'm pansexual (same with romance). Male. But I'm open to whatever others identify as. It's all good.

I agree with you cause people who previously thought a term for their sexuality/gender/romance didn't exist or never really fit in with any of the main sexuality/gender/romance categories now have a term that validates the feelings they've always had.

My view is that one's gender is either male or female regardless of one's capacity (or willingness) to accept it.

I never really thought romance was involved in sexual preference so I have no comment on whatever romantic identifications people have come up with.

To me, there is only straight, homosexual, asexual, bisexual. Bisexual people who have preferences are still bisexual. That's how it makes sense to me, anyway. Sort of like how if I like meat and veggies and eat more meat, but sometimes still feel like eating a salad, I'm still an omnivore. You either like the opposite, the same, both, or neither. I don't see any openings for another possibility short of one brought about by some split personality disorder. Maybe people change over time, too, but I don't buy it when people say something different every day.

I've given up on figuring out this modern gender stuff. In my opinion, most people are male, female, or agender. A male acting like a female is not a new thing. Or a female who wants acts male. They are still either male or female. If you have a gender and you don't have a split personality or some other similar disorder, I don't see how there's so much fluidity that a person can be their own opposite.

A lot of it honestly sounds like a desperate unwillingness to conform or to seem different but maybe that's just me. It is very annoying when people think everyone should learn their special pronouns. Nobody has time for that. Those people know exactly how others see them so I don't know why they are so surprised when they are called "he" or "she." I think most of these people should get a professional opinion to help identify themselves.

See, I don't know what half of any of this stuff is for the most part (call me closed minded or whatever). But all I know is that I'm a chick who digs dudes haha.

I guess I'm a straight pansexual lol I have dress up has a tom boy with a boy haircut before, even had a gay guy later on became my friend ask me out. I told him I was a girl and he said,"so, this will be the first I ever liked girls". I told I had to pass. I like dressing girly and like a boy too. I guess I'm weird. lol People told me even if I had a boy's haircut and clothes they could tell I was still a girl.

^--- Demisexual?

I think gender/sexuality terminology has gotten a little out of control..

Most everyone's familiar with the hetero/bi/homo/a-sexual orientations, and as far as I'm aware they cover the basics. For the sake of brevity, people should pick the one that's the closest match to themselves and then elaborate if their audience is actually still interested.

I don't see how having a thousand and one obscure terms really benefits anyone since hardly anyone knows them all (or can keep them straight, as half of them seem to overlap each other).

Is it so different than ordering a cup of coffee?

Black

Cream

Sugar

Now you have people throwing around big words to feel that they aren't ordering a cup of coffee with cream and two sugars.
