Pansexuality, bisexuality and genderfluidity powerpoint

  1. 1. BISEXUALITY, PANSEXUALITY AND GENDERFLUIDITY Bisexual pride flag Pansexual pride flag A symbol for genderfluidity and non gender-conforming people About this PowerPoint: This PowerPoint presentation focuses mainly on bisexuality and pansexuality, as well as trying to explain the concept of genderfluidity and the gender binary. I apologise if any of these definitions are incorrect, it is very difficult to find an accurate description of these difficult and complicated concepts to explain simply. SKIP TO SLIDE 6 FOR BASIC SUMMARY
  2. 2. DEFINITIONS OF BI- AND PANSEXUALITY • Bisexuality = attraction to the same and other genders (to yourself), not necessarily two (despite the “bi-” prefix) • Pansexuality or omnisexuality = attraction to all genders (Note: A technically “correct” definition of these terms has not been set by the LBGQP community, but these are the most logical definitions, in my opinion.) Whilst these definitions overlap, pansexuality is generally taken to be more inclusive of genderfluid people who do not fit the “gender binary” (explanation on slide 4) i.e., pansexuality specifically includes people who do not identify as male or female, whereas bisexuality does not. The diagram on the next slide explains bisexuality and pansexuality.
  3. 3. pansexual (omnisexual) bisexual overlapping Diagram of “non-monosexualism” (not being attracted to one gender [not being gay/straight]). As you can see, the definitions of bisexuality and pansexuality overlap.
  4. 4. THE GENDER BINARY The reason there is a lot of confusion about pansexuality is because many people are not aware that there are more than two genders, because of the gender binary which society has created. • The gender binary, is a system that is created by society to place gender into two polar opposites of male or female, or masculine and feminine. • There are many people who do not fit the gender binary, such as genderfluid or trans* individuals. These are individuals who do not identify as male or female for whatever reason. Genderfluidity, also written gender-fluidity, is a legitimate gender identity and is not the same as being trans*. •
  5. 5. GENDER IDENTITY – GENDERFLUID AND TRANS* • • • • • • • Assigned (Male/Female) at birth – the correct way of saying “born a male/female” (which is considered incorrect and offensive by most trans* and genderfluid communities) Cis – someone who identfies with the gender they were assigned at birth Trans* – someone who does not identify with the gender they were assigned at birth Genderfluid is a gender identity which means that you do not identify as either male or female Genderfluid is different to trans* For example, someone who was assigned male at birth may identify as a female later on in life. They are now a trans* female However, someone who was assigned male at birth may not identify as male, but may not identify themselves as a female either. This is called being genderfluid
  6. 6. SUMMARY • Bisexuality is the attraction to one or more genders, pansexuality is the attraction to all. Whilst these definitions overlap, they are not the same sexual orientation. • There are many people who do not fit the male or female gender binary. These people are called genderfluid people. It is not the same as being trans*.
